“I’m excited to bring my experience around European races to them and help the overall team in getting the best possible results.”
El Fares was born in Manosque, France and turned professional in 2008. Some career highlights have been winning the Tour de Wallonie and a stage at Tirreno–Adriatico. Cycling has been a passion for El Fares since he was six-years-old and his dream came true when he first raced the Tour de France in 2010. Still there’s no spot he’d rather take a long training ride in other than his hometown of Provence. And like many cyclists, El Fares spends a lot of time focusing on good nutrition and is passionate about healthy organic foods.
