Commencal has posted a farewell video to Remi Thirion, who first joined its team 8 years ago.
Remi joined the Commencal set up in 2013 after switching from the Labyrinth Shimano set up and quickly became one of the riders to watch as soon as the terrain got steep and technical. His finest hour came at the brand's home track in Vallnord in his first year with the team where he claimed his first World Cup win but he also earned wins at Crankworx, the French Cup, the French National Champs and the iXS European Cup with the team.
Remi suffered a horrific back break at Leogang in June of 2017 but this year, Thirion left those demons behind this year to conquer the muddy World Championships course and finish third in a brilliant comeback
. He finished 2020 fifth in the overall following another podium in Maribor to round off a stellar season.
There's no news yet on what the future holds for Remi but we'll update you with more news as it comes in.
