Yoann Barelli has finally announced his plans for 2019 and it looks like he's going to be part of the SRAM / RockShox set up, joining them as a product tester and developer at races.

bigquotesAfter 6 years trusting, riding and racing their components, I am super proud and happy to announce you guys that I am integrating the SRAM RockShox team,

I will be traveling to all the EWS with their race support crew and I’ll give all my heart to get the best results of my career, I will take position in the development / testing of the products and will do some pretty fun media projects all along this coming season !!! Also, It’s that time of the year, teams and riders shows their new kits and partners!!! WELL... OF COURSE, HERE IS MINE HAHAAAAAAAaaaaaaa
Yoann Barelli

bigquotesWe would like to welcome the wild man, Yoann Barelli to the team! He will be traveling to all the Enduro World Series rounds with our race support crew, and will be part of the development and testing of our products, while no doubt having some fun along the way. Good luck Yoann, hopefully your clothes show up soon.SRAM

Yoann joined Commencal in 2017 and was a regular face in the EWS top ten for the team. Although he is now not on the Factory enduro team, he will still be racing every round of the series on their bikes and also picks up his own sponsor list that includes 100%, Dakine and Five Ten.

Yoann Barelli is currently at the Windrock testing camp for RockShox athletes and will no doubt stick around for the mini World Cup that is the Pro GRT this weekend before jetting off to New Zealand for the EWS round 1.

 “That ain’t a seat tube! I’ll show you a seat tube!” - Barelli (lol)

Oh so now you guys have nothing to say about seat tube angles or helmet aesthetics?

 Every time I look down at the seat tube angle I hear Barelli's voice, "My eyes are up here!"

 @tbell1979: True story (I even messaged him on the 'gram and he confirmed that he was only in town for a quick testing session with RockShox). I'm also bummed to not see him race. On the bright side, maybe I'll run into you this weekend at Windrock and we can discuss the superior academics and athletics that Maryville High School boasts.
