The weather has not been kind with the riders, with a lot of rain on a track which was already really technical. 26 riders entered the race to claim the French Champion crown. Local hero Julien Absalon was defending his title against serious contenders such as Miguel Martinez, Titouan Perrin-Ganier or the eTeam La Roue Libre riders.
With a race full of unexpected turns, Jérôme Gilloux is taking the win on his Moustache bike. Victim of a broken chain after only a few minutes, he made an extraordinary comeback and passed the defending champion Julien Absalon just a few seconds before the finish line! Two Moustache Bikes on the first 2 spots, needless to say the excitement was high!
On the women side, Moustache’s rider Laura Morque has made a solid race and finishes in the 3rd position. Congrats to her!
Samedi 27 Trail doubles the bet!
