The Orbea-Fox Team is back for a fourth season, with Damien Oton and Vid Persak returning to lead the EWS team, joined this year by Laura Charles. The French rider has racked up a collection of 10th-20th EWS placings, and hopes to move up this season with her new ride.

 As I waxed on about in the PBA thread, I was a fan of that series and content. Very cool to see Orbea holding up their end in these uncertain times. I'm not typically a race fan but will be following Evan "Everyone's Everyone" Wall....hope the race season shapes up into something tangible.

 What! Vlad didn't win.......just kidding will be interesting to see how Evan does, kudos to Orbea. I miss my Alma ( my old hips don't), loved that bike and the attention to design details they put into thier products. Don't see too many Orbeas in the wild around these parts.
