Born in Viriat, Ain, Soupe competed for the EC Bourg-en-Bresse, VC Bressan and VC Vaulx-en-Velin setups as a junior, and the C.C. Etupes Le Doubs squad as an amateur, before joining the FDJ professional team for the 2011 season as a neo-pro. In his first race for the team, Soupe won the opening stage of La Tropicale Amissa Bongo in Gabon – beating Team Europcar's Anthony Charteau in a two-man sprint – before finishing the race in eighth place overall. Soupe later added a stage victory in the Tour Alsace, before quitting the race the next day.
Soupe made his Grand Tour début at the 2012 Giro d'Italia, taking a third-place finish during the race's first mass-start stage in Herning, Denmark; a result that Soupe stated that he was "sorry" for, after he was supposed to be leading out the team's main sprinter Arnaud Démare, until he was caught up in a final-corner crash.
