Five Unknown Facts: Rémi Cavagna

Five Unknown Facts: Rémi Cavagna

Everybody knows how the Quick-Step Floors riders came into the sport or what are their biggest results to date, but not many know what movies and music they enjoy, or where they like to spend their holidays. Here's your chance to find out all this stuff.

Favourite movies: I dig action movies – like "The Transporter" and the "Fast and the Furious" series – who are adrenaline-packed and really entertaining – but also French comedies starring Louis de Funès; he is gold!

Favourite music: I am a big fan of music, I'm into all kinds of music, from classical music to old music and from rock (Linkin Park is a great band) to electro. It all depends on the mood and on what I'm doing.

Favourite books: I don't know how many people have heard of it – maybe it's not as famous as "The Lord of the Rings" or "Game of Thrones" – but "Les Chevaliers d'Émeraude" is a fantastic saga well worth a read. It's a spectacular mix of history and fantasy which keeps you glued to its pages, and the best part is that the series numbers 12 books. I highly recommend it!

Favourite holiday destination: Disneyland is a really fun place, I love to spend time there and despite visiting it a couple of times, I continue to go there with huge pleasure and excitement, as there's a lot of places still left to discover. But I also like the sun and the sea; if my schedule allows, I never say no to a few days in a small town on the Mediterranean Sea.

Hobbies: I like to go fishing. It's very relaxing and helps you take your mind off things. I watch all sorts of sports, like rugby or tennis, besides cycling, that is, and from time to time I like to play video games, especially FIFA. I'm not a football fan, don't have any team that I'm rooting for, but I like to play some matches on the PlayStation, just for fun.
