Tristan Marguet grew up in the small community of Aigle in the canton Waadt, in striking distance to the velodrome of the Centre Mondial du Cyclisme. It was obvious that he would discover the track sooner or later.

After a couple of student races he later received an invitation to the national team’s training. What had started as a fun compensation at first, quickly developed into something greater. In 2007 he became the Scratch Swiss Champion for the first time and has proven a recipe for the podium in the years after.
