Commencal Enduro Team Announces Les Orres Partnership, a New Rider & More for 2022

Press Release: Commencal / Les Orres Team

The first is that Les Orres resort becomes the team’s title sponsor alongside Commencal: we are now the Commencal / Les Orres Team!

Les Orres has everything we could wish for: an extensive bike park with a lot of well-shaped Enduro and DH tracks and some fast lifts. Plus, its location in the Southern Alps guarantees us nice weather, something that is always appreciated!

This new partnership matches perfectly with our team’s project, not least because as of this year we are officially a UCI MTB DH Team as well as an Enduro team, with all our riders taking on both the World Cup and the Enduro World Series.

The third and final big announcement for 2022 is the signing of Lisa Baumann to the team. After racing in cross-country for many years, Lisa became Elite Swiss Enduro Champion last year and won her first U21 Enduro World Series in Crans Montana. Like Antoine Vidal (FRA), she’ll be racing in the Elite category this season. Alizés Lassus* (FRA) and Jack Piercy (GBR) will both be competing in the U19 category. And all the riders will be trained by Cécile Ravanel and managed by Cédric Ravanel.

Partnership-wise, the team is extremely proud to continue its relationship with many of its existing sponsors, notably with SRAM MTB, RockShox, Northwave and Schwalbe. One major change comes with the switch to Duke Racing Wheels for 2022 and beyond. Based in France and committed to excellence, we’re extremely motivated to work with them to develop the best gravity wheels.



bigquotesI am very honoured to join this team. I’ve loved the fact we have a huge training support and the family atmosphere of the team have fully motivated my decision. This is a great opportunity for me, and I know that the whole team will do its best to help me reach the highest level in Enduro and Downhill. See you soon on my Commencal Weapon!

bigquotesMy ambitions are to perform at the highest level in Enduro but also DH. After my 12th place at the 2021 Downhill World Championships, my goal will be to get into the Top 8. I'm also aiming for a Top 5 overall in the Enduro World Series and why not, a podium on a big day!


bigquotesHaving Les Orres resort as a title sponsor signs a new step in our team evolution. We have always been careful to write the best possible stories with our product partners which always gave us the opportunity to ride the best bikes ever. Now, we have the support of the best French resort for training in the best conditions. What could we wish more?Team Manager
bigquotesWe have always been focused to train young athletes and see them evolve at the highest level in the Elite category. Antoine Vidal is the most recent example of this by chasing today the first places in Enduro and DH. My goal as a coach is to have complete athletes who are happy and ready to compete at the biggest competitions in the world and I am already looking forward to help them in such projectsCoach

 Les Orres is a nice medium sized bike park, some of the tracks are great fun (Ride'n red), but some of the well designed flow tracks get absolutely ruined by braking bumps.

 I was there in July 2021 and had an absolute blast! Actually found the tracks to be in perfect condition
