Viva La French Enduro Series !
28 June, 2011
Congrats to Jérôme Clementz, WTB-sponsored rider and top finisher of last weekend’s Tribe 10000—the third event in the 2011 French Enduro Series. Read more about this talented rider in the latest issue of "Bike Magazine" as guest editor Mark Weir tries to get to the bottom of what makes this guy so fast. Is it his yellow shoes or perhaps his custom WTB Volt saddle seen here? It's hard to say, but if the yellow shoe fits...
All kidding aside, Jérôme Clementz is a force to be reckoned with on the enduro course (if winning the last Megavalanche is any indication). In case we neglected to mention, Jérôme rode Mutano 2.4 AM TCS tires to this particular victory that entailed two shots at three runs averaging 10 minutes each on Saturday (six runs in all) for a total of 6,000 m of vertical descent on single track. Sunday's format demanded more pedaling giving those who could find their legs a chance to use their fitness to compete against the leaders, who were averaging incredible 17-minute runs.
Up next in the French Enduro Series are the events in Les Arcs and Valloire at the end of July, where Team WTB's Mark Weir and Ben Cruz will have their work cut out for them against Clementz and the top enduro riders who continue to make us work hard to make the stuff they can use to win!
