Heavy tawny-colored clouds rolled at high speed in a broken sky. A cold rain harassed a grumpy spring. Welcome to Peyre, the village of Jérôme Costarramone. An appointment had been made with the dashing champion of France, at the foot of an old oak tree, standing like a sentinel in front of the church. A stone’s throw from the school and opposite the sports hall, right next to this patch of greenery where he drew his first gaps. The stage was therefore set. Immutable. Resistant to the onslaught of passing time. “I’m from Peyre and I feel good there,” proclaims the local hero.

Friends for eternity

His hectic existence began at the top of a small, narrow road. On the municipal benches. “Our school is integrated into the RPI des Sept Collines. I attended Peyre school from CE2 until I entered middle school. I was a quiet and shy student. I have always kept in touch with my friends from school. My best friend lives in the house next to me. They come to see me, support me. They are trying to understand how the race is going. »

Holder of a DUT in business management and administration and a degree in waste and environmental quality management, Jérôme Costarramone works in the road and maritime export department in a large Landes company.

Above the basket

In the center of the village is the famous sports hall. This is where the French champion feeds his other passion. That of the big orange ball. “I have been playing basketball since the age of 4 with my school friends. At the time, we wore the colors of UCL (Union Coteaux du Luy). I continue to practice this discipline when the racing calendar allows me to do so. This allows me to improve my physical condition, particularly my footwork. This is important when working a cow without a rope. »

Baptism of fire

The sports hall is next to a sort of wasteland covered with weeds. A plot of land that a volunteer cleans a few weeks before the local festivals, at the end of August. “It’s here that I made my first deviations on the occasion of the patronal holidays. Régis Laffituque, a former spreader, told me: ”Your first split, you have to do it at home”. I was 15 years old. And then I went to Jean-Louis Deyris who contacted me every year to sign a license. It happened very naturally. It was also in this small grid arena that I injured my knee. It was my second year of Formelle. That day, I should have dismissed at Gaujacq, but the mayor wanted me to dismiss at home. »

Hymn to friendship

A generous downpour sends us back prematurely near his home, in a former workshop transformed into a bodega and decorated with bull horns, photos and trophies: “As I attach a lot of importance to friends, this place allows me to to welcome. I mainly receive basketball or running friends there. Friendship is important to be happy. »
