On 6th September 2015 Loic Bruni finally achieved what had seemed from the outside to be almost unbelievably difficult for so long... A first big Elite race win on the biggest stage of them all, the UCI World Championships in Andorra.

Crossing the line over 2 seconds up on South African rider Greg Minnaar with only Troy Brosnan and Aaron Gwin left at the top, it seemed like nearly the whole world was hoping that this would finally be the day that Loic Bruni would end his duck and finish on the top step of the podium. "Come on Bruni... Come on. This has to be your day for once" even one of his biggest competitors of 2015 Greg Minnaar was willing the Frenchman to victory whilst sat in the hotseat.

Relive this amazing race; one which is surely up there with some of the classic World Championships of the past in Bruni & Vergier Against the World Episode 5, the last in the first season! Including footage from the last World Cup in Val Di Sole as well as the very first footage of Bruni riding in the famous Rainbow Jersey on Mont Ventoux in the South of France.

The Creative Concept team has spent all year shooting Bruni and Vergier behind the scenes in this first season of a very successful series, culminating in the most incredible way with this fairytale ending. After working on two full length film projects "Life on Wheels" with the Lapierre Gravity Republic team in 2013 and 2014, it was time to move on to a new production in 2015 and one which wouldn't be possible without the help of some amazing sponsors. The team would like to thank Lapierre, Sram, Ride 100% and Lizard Skins for their support and help creating this series. We simply couldn't do it without you guys!

 Isn't it strange that another WC race (really that's all it is), holds such gravity and honor for these guys and for some reason that transfers over to the fans watching. I believe 95% of the time, all racers are giving it their all at every WC stop but for whatever reason, World Champs holds much more weight than any other race. Bruni is not my favorite to win at races but to see him achieve his first WC win at such a prestigious race in the eyes of his competitors, it made me more happy than seeing Gwin dominate another stop or Minaar continuing to be a legend. The look on Bruni's face when he won was just absurdly cool. Who knew people barreling down a rocky hillside could be so emotional.

 The aerial shot at the end, with the music perfectly matched, is probably the most emotional shot of mtb history. Very intense video. Good job Lapierre Republic,

 In the beginning of the season I never really rooted for Bruni cause I didn't know much about him. As the season went on, and as I watched him race, I became more of a fan. This final video really did it for me though. He truly is a great racer, a great person, and an even bigger competitor who never gave up, even when the entire season had failed him. I look forward to watching him next year, and to seeing what he can do after being this years world champion. Cheers to you Bruni!
