Transvésubienne - 5th place for Maxime Folco

Known as the toughest race of the mountain bike season, the Transvésubienne is a dream for any MTB rider. 

 

 

The LP riders had big ambitions for the e-bike race, with 4 riders on the start line: Maxime Folco, Florian Golay, Kieran Page Vergier and Claude were ready for the fight.

Facing a mechanical issue, Florian Golay could not defend his chances and was forced to quit the race.

Kieran Page and Claude Vergier followed a little further, at 8th and 9th places.
