Julien Taramarcaz


Young, ambitious and fearless are the words that describe Julien Taramarcaz precisely. He doesn‘t get intimidated or even impressed by the palmares he lines up next to. He is not afraid of throwing himself into the deep end.

2011 was Julien‘s first year as a mountainbiker. In the past, he had tested his potential and luck on the road and in cyclocross. At the 2011 Swiss MTB championships, Julien allowed us to get a glimpse on what may lie ahead of the Valais resident when he placed 4th behind teammate Balz Weber. Julien proved is love for wet and muddy conditions when he won the Swiss cyclocross championship to start off 2012 in great style.

Growing up in the French part of Switzerland, directeur sportif Alex Moos has always been Julien‘s role model. It serves as great honor and motivation to him to be on one team with his childhood hero.
