CareerEdit

Fédrigo won 4 stages of the Tour de France: Stage 14 at Gap in 2006, Stage 9 at Tarbes in 2009, and two stages in Pau: Stage 16 of the 2010 race, and Stage 15 of the 2012 edition. In the 2010 edition, he was part of a select group that conquered two Hors Catégorie climbs and two Category one climbs. He battled it out with his seven breakaway companions in the final sprint, which included Lance Armstrong, and prevailed.[4] Fédrigo has also won races including the Four Days of Dunkirk in 2005 and the Criterium International in 2010. His nickname is "le nez de Marmande" (The nose of Marmande) due to his remarkable nose. In September 2014, Bretagne–Séché Environnement announced that they had signed Fédrigo for 2015.[2] In August 2016 Fédrigo announced that he would retire from competition after the GP Ouest-France.[3]
