Place of Birth: La Ferriere, Bretagne
Audrey Cordon-Ragot was born on the 22 September, 1989 in La Ferriere, Bretagne. Cordon-Ragot started cycling at a young age as both her dad and uncle were very good cyclists. At school Audrey combined cycling with other sports like rugby, cross country, volleyball and ping-pong. In the beginning Cordon-Ragot combined cycling with a study to become a real-estate agent. After having graduated she worked in a real-estate agency for three years. She really enjoyed the job but it became to difficult to keep combining it with cycling. So she changed her plans, graduated to be a sports teacher and she combines the two together ever since.
Audrey turned pro in 2008 with Vienne Futuroscope and raced for them for six years before switching to Hitec Products in 2014. Over the years Cordon-Ragot competed for the National team at World Championships, European Championships and the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.
Cordon-Ragot had some stellar road seasons the past years with victories in the GP Plumelec (2014), stage wins in the Tour de Bretagne and Route de France (2014), the GP Cholet (2015) and her most beautiful wins to date the gold medal at the National Time Trial Championship (2015 & 2016) after becoming three times second in the years before. (2012, 2013, 2014). Next to that she was second overall in the Tour de Bretagne (2014), third in the Omloop van het Hageland (2014) and played a crucial role in the 2014 World Championship victory of compatriot Pauline Ferrand-Prevot in Ponferrada, Spain.
Despite a horror crash in the Giro Rosa 2015 and another collarbone crash in a local cyclocross race prior to the 2016 Tour of Qatar the 27-year old remains an indispensable member of the Wiggle High5 team as she was very important in a lot of victories for the team in 2016 as a super domestique including La Course, La Madrid Challenge, the Emakumeen Bira and the stage wins in the Giro Rosa.
2017 will be Audrey’s third season on the Wiggle High5 team and she is eager to leave all the bad luck behind and is looking forward to have a stellar season in which she hopes to show her own potential in some of the races as well.
