« It is great news for us to receive Kai and all these prestigious riders from the whole world. Kai comes from Hawaii. He makes the return ticket only for Oléron; it is incredible. A big thank you to him! It is a very nice reward for all those who put themselves on event since its origin and in the very first place for all the volunteers who get involved without counting so that this event is as high as all these big champions. We exchange since some time with Kai on his visit and his last mail proves that he is delighted to come back in France: Hi Didier! I am so stoked to be coming back to France!
