Q&A with Juliette Labous


This month we asked you on our social media channels if you had any questions for Juliette Labous, who has recently extended her contract with us. After returning back from a training ride before heading off to the Giro Rosa, Juliette sat down to answer our favourites!

Q: What do you like to do when you’re not riding your bike?

A: I like walking, listening to music, sometimes shopping, and spending time with my family and friends! So a lot of things basically!

Q: What’s your favourite race and why?

A: I never give the same answer to that question, it always changes. Nowadays, I would have to say Liege-Bastogne-Liege because it’s a race that suits me, and it is really iconic. I really like the area there of the Ardennes, not only for racing but also for training!

Q: What song motivates you the most when you ride?

A: That’s a tough one but I think it would have to be Back in Black by AC/DC – a classic!

Q: If you could ride only one climb for the rest of your life, which one would it be and why?

A: “Le Tanneron/ Grand duc de Mandelieu”. It’s a steady climb with a very nice sea view, and it is mostly always good weather there which is definitely a bonus!

Q: Do you do pee stops in a race? (Asked by teammate Liane Lippert)

A: Very rarely! Only when I really need too and mostly when it is going very easy. The first time I stopped the girls told me it would be easy but we ended up chasing super hard because all of a sudden the bunch went crazy (in Giro dell Emilia), so for a while I said never again…haha.
