For more than 10 years Tribe Sport Group has supported enduro riders through its team. We have observed and followed very closely the evolution and the recent explosion of our discipline, so it’s only natural that we make the bigger step towards a team with international goals thanks to our title sponsor URGE Bike Products. The international team will take part in all the 7 rounds of the 2013 Enduro World Series. We will still not leave the Enduro Series – French Cup aside as in top of the Inter Team, a National Team will compete on these rounds.
Loyal to our values, we will concentrate our efforts on bringing our experience of the discipline to young riders who already proved their potentials with good results and wins but who also have a lot more to offer in the future. They will be able to rely on many benefits within the structure such as the experience of Alex Balaud and Sabrina Jonnier but also the support of our partners Yeti Cycles (SB66) and Rocky Mountain (Altitude) that produce the best enduro bikes at the minute. Each of our technical partners will bring something extra thanks to the renowned quality of their products. They are all recognized as a reference in their domain.
Michelin and the Fox Service Center France will be particularly involved in the development and the tuning of two of the most performance-defining characteristics of an enduro bike: tyres and suspensions. From now until the season opening on the 18th of May in Italy, the team will continue to work hard and will do their maximum to put their names on the top of the timing lists.
