I am passionate about all sports, and since a very young age I tried many different sports. Not only I enjoyed the variety but I am convinced this variety of sports made me a stronger, better and more complete athlete.

This is why I created Jura Sports. Based in Founex in Switzerland, Jura Sports offers endurance sports coaching in running, cycling and triathlon; and also kids camp for children and junior age groups.

Quality over quantity. We all have busy lives with work and family, but we also want to perform our sports the best we can.

Every hour counts and we will create a program that is tailor-made for you to help you reach your goals, whether this is competing in your first triathlon, achieve a marathon personal best, or compete in cycling events. My approach takes everything into account: endurance, strength, mobility, mental strength and nutrition. We leave no stones unturned.

Sport is a powerful educational tool for children. Up to their mid-teens, children should be playing many sports in order to learn different skills that are important to be a complete and rounded athlete.

Trying different sports will also improve their confidence as we all have strength and weaknesses. Kids will be encouraged to play in teams and learn the values of camaraderie, fair play and healthy competitiveness to give your best for your team mates and thus improving yourself.

    Fantastic camp!!! My daughter's cycling level has improved significantly. Although she felt very tired and difficult at first, she fell in love with cycling on the last day and wishes to continue this sport. Big thanks to Thierry and the entire Jura Sports team for bringing her a lot of positive energy and security, definitely an unforgettable experience!

    It was my first experience of a training camp as I am preparing L’étape du tour.
    We had a great time over these 3 days.
    The organisation was perfect. Thierry found a great place near Lac du Bourget which is a perfect region for cycling. We had 3 great days of cycling (tough though) but Thierry always had a plan B to adjust the level if needed.
    Next to the cycling we spent some time on recovering / stretching, the accommodation was great. Thierry also prepared great food and we learned a lot of stuff about sport diet.
    Overall a great experience which will definitely make you progress.

    I thoroughly recommend Thierry's coaching. He will set a well-tailored training program that will make you fitter and faster; he is responsive and communicative; and he brings lots of enthusiasm and motivation.

    The best evidence is that my times for the Half Ironman triathlon distance have fallen by around 20 minutes in the two years we've been working together; and I just finished 3rd in my age group in the Geneva Half Triathlon. I'm even enjoying the run at the end of a triathlon these days. I've also finished well in two long distance road bike races these past two years.

    Thierry sets a detailed daily training program based around my objectives and the time I have available for training. He reviews the program regularly, and is really good at adapting it as we go, for example, if I am more tired than expected or have extra work commitments. He is also on the lookout for innovative training techniques and devices that make an incremental difference. I'm grateful to Thierry for his work.

    Our daughters aged 8 and 6 joined the week-long cycling camp that Jura Sports runs. It was, hands down, the BEST camp that they have ever done! Thierry Bessède and his team ran an incredibly organised, attentive, completely engaging and thoroughly fun camp for the kids. The activities were varied, and they had enough staff to tailor the programme depending on each child's level and ability. Our younger daughter had just been off stabilisers for a week, but by the end of the week, she was a pro and loving cycling! We loved how Thierry took time to really engage with the parents at the end of the day and give a detailed account of what they'd been up to. We also got a fantastic portfolio of photos of everything they'd done that week. Thoroughly recommend and we'll definitely be signing them up both again!

    I highly recommend Jura Sports and Thierry as a fab coach. I participated to the Bugey training weekend beginning June. We had 3 fantastic riding days, custom made to our prep to the upcoming Etape du Tour in July. Thierry did a perfect job in putting a program together adjusted to the level of each member of the group. Its not just about the ride, its also about the preparation to get there through personalized training and nutrition programs. the accommodation was great, the food was great, the group was great and Thierry managed to hold the whole thing together in a fantastic way. I am way fitter now than I have been and feel as ready as can be for the upcoming race! Thanks Thierry
