Yoann Barelli in his own words is "a professional mountain biker, clown, nature lover, brand ambassador, dad, photographer and most of all positive life embracer".
When you meet him in person it all checks out - Yoann is one amazing character, not to mention a very fast and a very stylish rider. The latest addition to the Commencal stable definitely helps him to be as great rider as he is. Let's have a look at his bike.

Spank's Oozy 350 29 rims are usually mounted up with Hutchinson Toro tires, but, according to Yoann, "My Hutchinson tires got stuck in custom on their way from France to Canada before I left for the Trans Madeira, so I had no choice but to buy tires... I love my Hutchinson Toro and it was a bummer to go race with something else."
