French Equals Fast
French SRAM | RockShox athletes dominate the Enduro World Series results in Millau, France
For the second year in a row, the French rider Cécile Ravanel is dominating the Enduro World Series. Over the course of the rough, nine-stage event this weekend in Millau, France, the Commencal – Vallnord Enduro Team rider took five of nine stage wins, and claimed the overall by 1:35 over 2nd-place finisher Isabeau Courdurier.
Courdurier, who’s also from France and is also the only rider to best Ravanel for an event overall this year, took Millau’s opening stage, stage six and the final stage.
Along with her number-1 plate, Ravanel’s Commencal was outfitted with a SRAM X01 Eagle™ drivetrain, Guide Ultimate brakes, a RockShox Lyrik RCT3 fork, Super Deluxe RT Remote shock and a Reverb 1x post.
On the men’s side it was a third Enduro World Series win of the season for Lapierre Factory Enduro rider Adrien Dailly. It’s Dailly’s first Elite category EWS campaign, and he’s currently leading the overall series by 80 points. Dailly won three of the event’s nine stages on his way to the overall victory.
Helping to further define French as Fast, Damien Oton collected the 3rd-place spot on the podium. Consistency throughout the event, and finishes that showed him getting quicker toward the final stages, were key to the Devinci Global Racing athlete’s success.
