They said:

Sven, winner of the 2013 boys, says: "I'm happy, it was a really nice track and I had fun coming. I even outdistanced my friend Tom".

On the girls' side, Manon, 2013 winner, said, "I'm happy because I didn't think I made first. At first I just wanted to participate."

Julie and Cléa from the 2015 girls category: "We had a lot of fun, it's the first time we're coming. The climbs were difficult. We even beat a boy who left before us."

Samuel, category 2016 boys "It was a good race. I'm in first grade, I've done a cross-country race before. I don't know if I beat my friends. The hardest part was trying to overtake."

Enzo Bouillet, winner of the 2006 boys' race: "At the start I was not very good, I wanted to overtake on the outside, I planted the ski in the snow and I fell. Then I came back. The course was hard but great. The Transju'Jeunes is the race we've been doing since we were very young, so it's cool to win it. Next year will be the last time I can do it. But I want to continue competing afterwards..."

Zélie Roy, winner of the 2006 girls: "I did not expect this victory. The course was quite complicated, but it was a course for me, I like difficulty and challenges. I liked it. I plan to continue competing if everything goes well, but yes I love this sport!"

Célia Aymonier: "I was able to do the Transju'Jeunes when I was young, it's a great race with a great atmosphere. And it's also where I started!"

Anaïs Bescond: "I did the Transju'Jeunes with the school, that's how I started with the club and with my parents. It's a great feeling to see all these kids doing cross-country skiing.
