Our Four Aces
If you’re a die-hard enduro fan, you may already know their names. They’re racers who bring previous successes with the unlimited potential to grow even more. They have a lot in common – they’ve all been molded in Downhill, BMX and XC competition and they are experienced in the EWS circuit. They already know what it’s like to climb the podium and they share a hunger for victory.
Team Manager / Mechanic
The Orbea Enduro Team will be accompanied by a top-notch staff, led by Julien Brugeas as team manager. Julien was a mechanic back on the Orbea Racing Team. After the team disappeared, he joined the Clif Bar Pro Team as part of the Orbea staff. There, he has been one of the architects of all the team’s achievements in the world of elite XC all these years, such as the World Cup and Cross Country Championship, and the Rio Olympic Games of 2016, to name a few.
Orbea Rallon R5
The recently-introduced Rallon R5 has created interest in Orbea never seen before in this category. Performance, customization and unique looks have made Rallon a top bike for many riders & journalists. This impression was also shared by the members of the Orbea Enduro Team.
In the second part of this article on the Orbea Enduro Team camp, we focus on the material tests our riders carried out to hone their machines for competition.
