Enough of the teasing, show the movie. Damn it.
| Oct 20, 2015 |
The full movie will be released in just over a month, featuring and following Myriam Nicole, Rémi Thirion, Thibaut and Gaëtan Ruffin and Gaëtan Vigé as well as the rest of the crew throughout the 2015 race season.
A few weeks ago, after World Championships, we came to Rémi's place in Les Vosges in the north east of France, where he was born and has lived for 25 years. He showed us his home enduro trails on the META AM V4.
Next up, Val di Sole in Italy, for the World Cup finals. Myriam, 100% back from her early season collarbone injury, was ready to battle with Rachel Atherton for the win. There wasn't much in it but in the end she had to settle with second place.
Two weeks later came the most important race of the season - World Champs in Vallnord, Andorra, the other hometown of the team. Against all expectations, Rémi was going to race after his ankle injury he sustained just a month earlier. He and Myriam showed some incredible skills during practice sessions and race runs. Unfortunately, Myriam crashed during her race and saw all her chances of becoming World Champ fade.
Rémi did an amazing job all week long and despite some pain in his ankle, he managed to come down 2nd in seeding. The next day, conditions changed and no longer played in his favour but he still managed to get a great 9th place!
We also visited Gaëtan « Junior » in St Raphaël in the south of France during the start of his long rehabilitation period after surgery to fix his femur.
Finally, the Ruffin brothers enjoyed the awesome new track of the Bike Park in Vallnord, designed and shaped by their buddy PEF.
