They have chosen Lapierre. For competition, to indulge their passion or to help with their training, they use our products. They are our ambassadors and we are very proud !
Lapierre has a brand new team to go with the Française des Jeux (FDJ) professional race team and the Enduro racers that make up Team Lapierre Gravity Republic: the Overvolt Brigade! While the names of Bruni and Vergier might be synonymous with DH, what you might not know is that Jean-Pierre Bruni and Claude Vergier – the fathers of former members of Team Lapierre Gravity Republic Loic and Loris – are e-biking pioneers and were among the first to take part in electric MTB events such as the Transvésubienne. Who else, but these two mountain bike legends to fly the flag for Lapierre in these exciting new competitions? As well as ambassadors, they also help test and develop the Overvolts of the future. Signing up for a win-win partnership, they play an active role in fine-tuning and developing these new machines.
Team Groupama – FDJ
A partnership that has taken Lapierre bikes to stage wins on the Tour de France, Vuelta and Giro; that took Thibaut Pinot and his Lapierre Aircode to the 3rd place and best young rider in 2014’s Tour de France; that took Francis Mourey to be 8 times French cyclocross champion. A partnership that has more wins left in it yet!
A partnership that has endured 17 years, one of the longest lasting partnerships in professional cycling. A partnership with two men at its origin, Gilles Lapierre and Marc Madiot. Both proud of their French heritage. A shared work on product development, testing, improvement, a focus on technology to help win races. A ceaseless work resulting in innovations such as the SAT on the Pulsium endurance model and the aerodynamic features on the Aircode and Aerostorm.
In 2018, the FDJ team became the Team Groupama - FDJ. A new partnership between both sponsors that signs the beginning of a great cycling adventure.
