We’re not yet at the point where the team sticks together and travels from race to race. We’re still in the time of the year where every athlete prepares in his own way.
While Emilie Siegenthaler and Noel Niederberger are burning down the freshly opened tracks in Switzerland, and Romain Paulhan and Floriane Pugin are recovering from their injuries from South Africa, – Brendan Fairclough is working hard to get ready for four weeks of action: British Downhill Series (UK), Se
a Otter Classic (USA), video shoot with Clay Porter, ProGRT race (USA) and FOX suspension test week (USA), – all back to back. Brendan will use all this time to further develop the new bike and to get it to top speed for the World Cup in Val di Sole, at the last weekend of May.
While Brendan is in the USA, Noel and Emilie will race the first IXS European Cup at Monte Tamaro, Switzerland, and will hopefully be joined by Floriane and Romain, coming back from their injuries.
