On October 7, Thibaut Pinot will officially bow out of the world peloton at the end of the Tour of Lombardy, a Monument that he won in 2018. Then, the time will come to quietly take care of his goats on his farm, in Melisey, before, perhaps, attempting a new adventure that is particularly close to her heart. Guest of Bistrot Vélo on Eurosport this Monday, the French climber reiterated his desire to participate in Koh-Lanta, the famous show presented by his friend Denis Brogniart.
“I told him of my wish before registering, so we’ll see,” said the 3rd of the 2014 Tour de France. “I always wanted to do Koh-Lanta, after that it’s more complicated than expected to be chosen . But it's in the back of my mind, if I dare to take the step of doing Koh-Lanta.
The Franc-Comtois had already applied for Koh-Lanta in 2012, he is a nature enthusiast who believes he has the qualities to succeed in the show even if it would require effort. “I think the food would make me quite aggressive,” he joked. A true favorite of the French on the bike, Thibaut Pinot would certainly give a spotlight to the already popular program. And would undoubtedly put on a show during the events.
