Since our atypical meeting in 2016, we decided to try together the adventure of a partnership. A challenge at all levels to help us each other. To evolve the products, to be interested in the creation of these by insisting on their quality and their origin. Participating and knowing the life of the company are the first steps…look forward to continuing this story…
In the mountains, more than elsewhere, sun protection is crucial. It is necessary to have sunglasses that are adapted and reflective for each specific activity. To be able to benefit from the experience of other athletes and from the Cébé brand with high performance sunglasses is therefore a massive advantage for me.
Suunto, like Salomon, is my long-standing sponsor and I immediately fell in love with their watches. Simple, effective, adapted to the mountains and my various activities, discreet and ever evolving, I never go anywhere without one!
The Beaufortain Region is an area I hold close to my heart, where I have been going since I was a child. Accessible, wild, preserved, extremely diverse and adapted to all types of sport, for me it is the ideal place to combine competitions, training sessions and relaxing with the family. So it is a genuine pleasure for me to fullfil the role of ambassador for the Beaufortain Region.
The Beaufortain Region reaches the heights of François D’Haene
The Beaufortain Region is pure and simply the mountains, in easy reach and easy trail running.
Welcoming ground, Welcome François,
Sporting ground, go for it François,
Challenging ground, well-done François.
The Beaufortain Communities are pleased to share their values, image and trail running space in affiliation with François D’Haene.
Stéphane ABATE : Managing Director of Félix Faure Automobile, VOLVO
Firstly, it is interesting to point out that there are several trail runners in our company and so what could be better than having the world reference of this sport as our ambassador.
What is more, François D’Haene’s principle values go hand-in-hand with our brand values:
Our customers drive a Volvo, yet they have the financial means to buy a BMW, the reason being that they desire a car that is reliable and robust but not openly ostentatious.
We are not looking for a “Bling Bling” image and François D’Haene is in perfect harmony with our Volvo image (Design – Safety – Reliability – Discretion)
Why choose Petzl Team ?
I joined Team Petzl for its multidisciplinary side in mountain sports. I complete my equipment to start as simply as possible from the bottom of the valley and go to the top by equipping as and when the ascent with technical and efficient equipment.
Having a quality lamp when I run at night is essential. It is also for branding, authentic and close to nature. Another important point for me was to work with a French company close to my home.
OVERSTIM.s is the benchmark French brand in the field of sports nutrition.
For almost 40 years it has evolved in France and internationally.
Despite this, it has kept its roots and its values by remaining a family business and attentive to athletes.
The wide range coupled with the possibilities and the desire for development, particularly in the local and organic sector, are one of the main reasons for my desire to collaborate with them.
So let’s go for a new adventure!
Why choose Blacksheep Van?
As an ultra trail runner, what matters most to me and my training is spending time outdoors and in the mountains.
Having a comfortable, practical and safe living base for the family is therefore a considerable privilege. Blacksheep van therefore came to the rescue of the family to offer us one of their fitted van and since our collaboration has evolved and adapted to suit the seasons and projects.
And in recent years I have come across more and more nature lovers, with a little sheep on the truck, roaming the roads in search of a living base or a quiet corner… and no doubt that it will still progress !!
Our goal, at Blacksheep Van, is to allow as many people as possible to benefit from a solution to live their passion for outdoor sports, nature, and encourage self-transcendence.
It is therefore quite naturally and with great pride that we seized the opportunity to accompany François in order to help him create a balance between his sporting practice of ultra-trail, his family and professional life as what a winemaker!
Strongly the beautiful projects to come!
