Great September for the team

25 septembre 2014

After a small recovery break, the team has taken the training and the national enduro races again with great results which are encouraging for the end of the season.

Thomas LAPEYRIE and Elliot TRABAC finished the enduro french cup "Enduro Series" with the 2 last rounds. It was 2 totally different races with:
- on one hand Samoëns (Alps) and its winter conditions with a lot of mud and slippery roots
- on the other hand, Valberg (Mercantour National Parc) with the dry and rocky trails of South of France.
In either case the 2 riders did very nice races.
Elliot showed again his consistency and his talent with a 1st place in junior category at Samoëns and a 2nd place at Valberg. Thus he finished 2nd junior at the overall and 10th scratch: very promising for next year in the main category.
Thomas also finished well the french cups. In spite of a few problems which cost lots of precious seconds, he finally finished 6th at Samoëns and 3rd at Valberg.

Rémy ABSALON took advantage of this quiet period to try a different way of training. He complained of a lack of power and explosivity. So he has worked in this direction and the assessment is good! Rémy won his 3 last races.

Last weekend, he could tackle some talented competitors on the penultimate round of the Jérome CLEMENTZ's Bluegrass Enduro Tour in Alsacia: 5 stages spread over 30km, with a spectacular start from the summit of the Grand Ballon, highest point of the Vosges mountain range, and a finish line on the Town Hall square in Guebwiller where they was a final run, urban special. Rémy sustained momentum by winning this great enduro race ahead the Cube Action team rider Nicolas LAU.
Elliot TRABAC was also present. He won in the junior category and finished 4th of the overall. Our 2 riders won in this way the 2014 circuit in their category.

The Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team riders are motivated and ready for the last Enduro World Series stop the 4th and 5th of October in Finale Ligure (Italy).

Keep going!
