Rocky Mountain posted a farewell and thank you to Andréane Lanthier Nadeau last week and now we find out where the top Canadian enduro racer is headed for 2024.

Lanthier Nadeau is headed to the Commencal x 7mesh Enduro team alongside Elliot Jamieson and current U21 Canadian National Enduro Champion, WeiTien Ho. The three will compete on the Enduro World Cup season in 2024.

Based in the industrial heart of Squamish, BC, Canada, and only steps away from each other’s offices, Commencal Canada & 7mesh say they are committed to providing a high-performance hub for these athletes to tune and test their equipment. Residing and training in the Sea to Sky corridor themselves, ALN, Elliot, and WeiTien will have convenient access to everything they need for the upcoming season.

In addition to being supported by Commencal and 7mesh, the team will be supported by another Squamish company, Stark architecture and interior design studio.

bigquotesI’m grateful for this new opportunity to ride for Commencal. It feels so good to be welcomed with open arms by a brand that is deeply invested in racing. Thanks to 7mesh and Stark, we will be able to keep some Canadian flavour at the Enduro World Cups! Change is a powerful force and I’m tapping into it fully for 2024.ALN

ALN would like to thank RideWrap, Shimano, and Fox Factory for their continued support.

bigquotesI am over the moon to have the opportunity to join Commencal Bikes. The shared passion for high performance and racing culture between Commencal and 7mesh is world class, and I can’t wait to start racing. With WeiTien, ALN, and I, we truly have assembled a Canadian dream team.Elliot Jamieson

bigquotesI'm very excited to enter my final U21 year and start the second EDR season with Commencal. Last year, I couldn't attend all the rounds due to ski event scheduling, so I'm hyped that the 2024 calendar worked out. I couldn't be more excited to have ALN and Elliot by my side this season! I know I will learn a lot from them; hopefully, I can return the favor in a couple of areas.WeiTien Ho

 Glad to see ALN find a team so quickly given the economy out there, in general. And to be so close to home too, that's awesome! Looking forward to cheering on her and her teammates this season! Woohoo ALAN!!

 So quickly is an interesting take. Most of these riders normally know their contract isn't being renewed by September or October. I'm sure this team has been in the works for months.

 @GTscoob: Correct, this deal was done months ago.

 As others have said, this was done ages ago. The deadline for team entry passed a week ago so all the deals are done. Now it’s just the marketing reveals

 No offense to this awesome team of badass riders, but why are there no details on that overly adorable team dog?

 There's gonna be a separate press release, but that information is still under embarko.

 Commencal snagging 3 great riders off of Norco and Rocky Mountain in their own backyard...crazy.

 YES!!!!

Give ALN the racing support she deserves and let’s see how far she can go!!!

 Seems like after the pod with Melemed and now this the Rocky team might just not have the devotion to racing that the riders are looking for, whereas teams like Commencal and canyon are very race oriented. Congrats ALN hopefully this is what you were looking for

 If it was unknown that WeiTien was already on this team, why is his name omitted from the team? Let’s name the entire team PB, come on.

 Worth noting as well, he is an absolutely incredible freeride skier.

 Seriously, every athlete seem to be riding for Commencal this year. Looks like it's the last frame sponsor left in the industry.

 @slayerdegnar: my understanding is that they have been sponsoring several teams, but those teams are not particularly large individually.

 Cool to see ALN and the guys getting some support.

I guess the Commencal teams watch is back on for the 2024 season. If Commencal Project (the factory team) and Commencal les Orres (the Ravanels team) do continue that means at least 3 teams in EDR alone...

 Interesting to see those RM/RF team sponsors stick with ALN through the team change. I hope it's more than just contractual obligations. I feel like she brings good value for them - I know I'm always rooting for her.

 Where's the dang YT announcement for pete's sake? Vali was filmed riding a 'different' (kinematics in a bag) TUES in SoCal with the Mob already.
