Britanie Cauchon, cyclist

The Saint-Alexandre-de-Kamouraska athlete is part of the Club cycliste Espoirs Premier Tech. She stands out in time trial events. 

Premier Tech’s support is very important in my cycling career. Thanks to this support, I’ve had some great opportunities like meeting the members of the Israel—Premier Tech cycling team.

Quebec ChampionshipsIn 2020, at 16 years old, Britanie is one of the youngest cyclists to take part in the Québec Road Cycling Championships — Elite. She reaches the podium twice, ahead of more experienced runners.  

Sport-études scholarship Although 2021 was a tough year due to major injuries, she never stops pushing herself. The student-athlete in social sciences at the Cégep of Rivière-du-Loup received the sport-études scholarship for the quality of her academic performance.

A promising futureBack on her bike since the spring of 2022, Britanie is more determined than ever to reach the highest summits of her sports.

Emmanuelle Moreau, cross-country skier

The Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges athlete joins the Club Nordique of Mont Saint-Anne around the age of 10. She stands out in free skating events, also called skate skiing. 

I am thrilled to be a part of the Premier Tech Team and to be supported by a company that encourages sports on many levels.

The World Junior Championships in her sightsIn 2019, at 12 years old, Emmanuelle wins gold at her first Jeux du Québec. The following year, she entered the ski-études program, which allowed her to focus more on her sport. In 2022, she won two gold metals in the Eastern Canadian Championships. She now aspires to be selected for the World Junior Championships.

Holder of several recordsHe joins the Rivière-du-Loup Filoup athletics club at the age of twelve, allowing him to develop his full potential in this field for over ten years. He holds many Québec records and, in 2018, he is considered the best blind athlete in the world in the under-19 category.

Charles Philibert-Thiboutot, athletics

The Québec City athlete is a member of the national athletics team. His specialty is the 1 500 m.

At a time when injuries were keeping me from training and competing, Premier Tech’s support literally saved my career by allowing me to focus on rehabilitation and long-term goals. Since then, I am back to my career’s best and Premier Tech’s help allows me to focus on what is really necessary to pursue an Olympic medal.

The Rouge et Or yearsDuring his administration and public relations studies at Université Laval, Charles joins the Rouge et Or track and field and cross-country team. He is named athlete of the year — all sports included — two years in a row.

In 2022, ten months after missing by two seconds the Olympic standard to participate in the Tokyo Games, he sets a new Canadian 5 km record at the Boston Marathon. Confident for the rest of his career, Charles aims to improve his world ranking in the 1 500 m and 5 000 m.
