David Mouncoutié retired at the end of 2012 but the Frenchman hasn’t stopping riding. He’s joined the VC Caladois club in Villefranche-sur-Saône, north of Lyon.
But despite looking as lean as ever and the team kit and bike shown above he says he won’t be racing, his goal is merely to ride a few cyclosportive events instead. Pure Moncoutié.
He hasn’t ridden a road bike since retiring but spoke to Hervé Bombrun of the French Federation at the Cofidis team launch today. “I’m doing quite a lot of mountain biking. I think as soon as better weather arrives I’ll get back on the road.”
