Emile also practices alpine skiing, sailing and water skiing. All these activities are shared with his family and friends. It creates a community based on effort, mountain landscapes and friendships
Emile has spent a large part of his career in the textile industry and in the French high end shoe market.
In 2019, 100 years after the brand was founded by his father and uncles, Emile Mercier - the second of this name - decided to continue the family business and to perpetuate its values of quality, innovation and performance.
Emile participates every year in the Ardechoise and L’Etape of the Tour.
Emile’s bicycle: Pinarello K8
It was thanks to his fixie bike that he used to get around Paris, that Alexis made his late entry to the world of road cycling, aged 30. He took part in the first Haute Route Dolomites in 2014 as well as regularly participating in the Ardechoise and the Etape du Tour. Although it’s not the competition he is after, Alexis cannot resist a chance to ride in the peloton for kilometres.
Alexis’ bikes: Specialized Roubaix, Cinelli Starship, Scott Addict R3, a fixie for Paris.
