Arnaud TOURNANT biography

With 14 titles, Arnaud Tournant has won more World Championships in track cycling than any other rider, owing this mostly to his great time trial skills. Apart from winning the 1 km event at the World Championships four times (1998-2001), he was also the anchorman of the strong French team sprint squad. In that event, he won no less than nine world titles (1997-2001, 2004, 2006-08). Tournant also won titles in the match sprint, winning the Olympic gold in 2000 and the world title in 2001. In addition to his titles, he has collected eight more championship medals, of which three came at the Olympic Games. On 10 October 2001, he became the first man to break the 1-minute barrier in the kilo event, clocking 58.875 at the high-altitude velodrome of La Paz, Bolivia.
