VoulVoul Racing team is delighted to confirm every riders for 2018 season.
Team Manager, Patrice Afflatet said “So far the team have achieved awesome results, 4th of the 2017 UCI Gravity Team ranking, Florent 3rd at the 2016 worlds, Marine 4th, the French team select four of our riders for the 2017 world championship !
It is very hard for a small team as we are, budget is more than tight, and everything have to be calculated, but we are also a kind of family with solid spirit and friendship, that is really helpful. We are really happy to be able to pursue with all those talented riders.”
Team leader, Florent Payet (31), current European Champion, will ride a newly built 29’’ Mondraker Summum. Baptiste Pierron (24) 15th of the 2017 world cup overall show that Amaury wasn’t the only “Pierron’s”, he is ready to go evn further. Marine Cabirou (21), 2015 Junior World Champion, 2016 European Champion, she is committed to stay at the top of women ranking, after a nice podium in Vallnord last year, she is working hard to be regular at top level. Last, Kevin Marry (20) and Antoine Pierron (19, third member of that rather fast familly) were in the top league juniors, they both have a really strong potential and should perform very well in elite. We will also continue with Thomas Denizot on the 4X Pro Tour and help a few national riders as well as new, yet unseen, young riders, stay tuned.
We want to thanks all our fellow partners, it is pretty difficult nowadays to have partnership for so long time, height years with Mondraker (Frames), fifth season with SR Suntour (Suspensions), ten years (!) with Formula (Brakes), seven years with Kenny Racing (Riders Kits as well as Helmets and Goggles in 2018).
In addition, Mavic will provide the wheels, RaceFace the drive train, Reverse Components bars and stems, Shovel chain guides, Crankbrothers will manage the pedals, ODI for the grips and we will still have custom SDG saddles and seatposts.
Last, our long-term supporters Pedros (Tools, Lub & Clean), Novyparts (Chassis setup), Cyrpeo Bike Shop and Julien our friend from TchoukTV remain as solid added values.
Finaly we are happy to announce a new partnership with Schwalbe (Tires) and HXR Components (Custom Parts).
We cannot wait for the season to kick off, see you all in Losinj… !
