  • Thank you Jean Lou for being accessible to answer my questions and help with my training program!
    Through your extensive knowledge in sport of cycling, positive attitude and generous help with my training program, I have managed to expand my fitness level beyond what I had imagined I would be able to accomplish in the short time I have been training under your guidance. Through your workout plan, I observe that my resting HR is decreased by about 6 BPM over the last 3 months and I see improvements in my FTP, PMA and endurance capacity, as well, I have improved my breathing and pedalling techniques. 
    I wish I had access to you and your knowledge in cycling in previous years…. better late than never!


  • Many thanks Jean-Lou for what an incfredible weekend! Our two days of cycling with you were absoloutly fantastic. You were a perfect and entertaining host and looked after us brilliantly all weekend The ride were pitched just perfectly for us, the bikes you hired for us were great and the knowledge you shared with us was also terrific. This weekend will be remembered for a long time.


  • This year I decided to do L'Etape du tour with Paiani Sport Organization.(Last year my 1st time L'Etape with other group. For me to ride with Jean Lou It's the best cycling experience. He give advised for preparing for the race and take me to practice the course and preparing my body so I can do a lot better than last year.
