Video: Take A Lap with Flo Espiñeira in the Chilean Andes Mountains

Aug 5, 2022
by Orbea  

In a new episode of the Take a Lap saga, we travel to Orbea Enduro Team rider, Flo Espiñeira training grounds, and hometown, El Cerro Chile, in the Chilean Andes Mountains.

Flo's story is one of chasing a dream. Their passion for MTB led them to travel to Whistler to participate in the Pinkbike Academy reality show. Their tenacity, courage, and desire to be the best made them the ultimate reality show winner aboard their Rallon.

It was there that they started their journey with the Orbea Enduro Team and competing in the Enduro World Series where, after a very solid first part of the season, they managed to become a regular on the podium with their Wild FS and continue to lead the e-Enduro World Series to date.


Through this new Take a Lap episode, we get to know Flo’s personal side.









MENTIONS: @orbea / @foxfactory / @raceface / @Bluegrass / @Fizik / @Maxxis / @shimano

 Instead of all this pronoun crap why cant we just use the persons name? In this case why their? it sounds like there is more than one Flo?

 They is plural. Grammar can't be changed like that.

 @az-shredder3: language is famous for its inability to change, this is why we all speak proto-germanic.

 @fabwizard: I don’t know why it’s so hard for people to understand why someone would be disgusted with the idea of being called a woman.

 Woah!! Siempre quisiera ir a montar bicis en Chile, pero ahora uuuuf ya me pongo a buscar tickets!! Flo - eres una inspiración con mucha fuerza!! MUY buena suerte esta temporada!!

Y para esos comentarios del uso de pronombres, les comparto un poema escrito por lingüista:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Singular they is older
Than singular you.

Dejen de ser machistas. Dejen de mantener ese binario del genero. Arriba la inclusividad en nuestro deporte.

 Amazing edit! The conditions look insane. Both for riding and maintenance. Do you get rain from time to time or is it mainly misty?

 In the central sector of Chile, it rained a lot more before, we have been drought for more than 10 years, all because of climate change. This July it rained a little more, the trails are very good.

 @Lundeee: Flo is racing E-EWS. Personally, I certainly would have liked to she Flo in the regular series instead.
