We are two brothers, Fleury and Corentin, having grown up in Chagnon a small village of the Loire department. Passionate about sport, nature and especially orienteering, we both practice this discipline in competition since the college. This passion remained intact with the years and it is now part of our job.
We share many trainings together but also races, as here, in the “Solitaire du Soleil et de la Lune” in July 2019. An orienteering and autonomy of 10 hours of effort and 4400d + 60km off-road
FLEURY - 24 years old
Holder of a scientific bac, I continued my studies in BTS Management and Protection of Nature, and then at the “Mountain Sports Activities” and finally in License Staps Sports Training.
In parallel, I spent the state diploma of medium mountain guide, with which I have been working since 2018 as a self-entrepreneur. I am an orientation trainer for the structure “Arvik” in order to train future mountain accompanies on their probationary examination. From theory to practice, I try to give them all the technical keys to understand and apply discipline on the ground. I also encroach Trail courses in many massifs for “Trails in France” but also for other structures. In winter, I am a ski-patroller on the Nordic field of Grand-Bornand.
Passionate about sport since my childhood, I have at first played at the handball, football and practiced athletics in club up to 14 years. Then I started the orientation race after discovering the discipline at the college. I joined the sports section to St-Etienne after one year of practice. I started to train seriously to get 5 titles of champion of France and some international selections with the French national team. My best individual performance will remain a 4th place in Junior European Cup in 2015 and a 6th place in relay at the 2017 World Junior Championship in Finland. As a team, we were school world champion in 2015 in Turkey.
In 2018, after 5 years high-level in the orientation race, I decided to orient my sports practice towards Trail Running. I run in competition over distances from the vertical kilometer, with a title of French champion in 2018. I had the opportunity to win many regional races and I now go to shine at the national level on races like “Les Templiers” or “Saintélyon”. In the future I also want to embark on adventure race formats that attract me a lot like multisport raids or ultra-trails.
"This project is born of common passions, the orienteering and the adventure"
CORENTIN - 27 Years old
After validating a scientific BAC, I continued my studies in DUT Electrical Engineering and Industrial Informatics, and then in DUETI in Mikkeli in Finland and finally in a professional license Statistical Study and Geographic Information System.
It was after a few years of work in water network mapping that I specialized in orienteering mapping in which I work since 2018 as a self-entrepreneur. I realize maps to practice orienteering whether for training, competitions (club, federation…) or Heritage discovery (municipalities…)
I practiced handball until I was 17 and then I started orienteering in club Nature Orientation Saint-Etienne (NOSE) after discovering the discipline at college. After 2 years of training, I participated in the European Youth Championship (France 2012) and integrated the French Cadet team. Since then, I have 7 titles of French champion and 6 selections in the Cadet, Junior and Senior National Team (Junior European Cup, Junior World Championship and Senior World Cup).
In parallel with Orienteering, I occasionally practice trail running over distances below 40 km and the multisport raid. In the future, I wish to direct me on longer formats mainly in orientation like rogaining (24h orienteering race), adventure raids and ultra-trail.
