Anyone who has been to an Italian SuperEnduro will have witnessed first hand the success of the Life Cycle team! This passionate collective from San Remo are a group of dedicated bikers with a clear goal in mind: to promote and to develop Mountain Biking in the west coast of Liguria. With a strong lineup of Manuel Ducci,Valentina Macheda, Paul Aston, Dorian Zuretti and Christopher Bertotto, they have one of the best enduro teams in Italy.
Valentina Macheda has been a dominant racer in the womens SuperEnduro circuit, and despite not attending the Whistler and Colorado rounds of the Enduro World Series, she finished a solid 18th overall! Valentina is currently riding a new IBIS Mojo HDR. The new HDR is the latest incarnation of the long serving Mojo HD, offering 650b compatibility improved provision for chain devices, and a half pound weight saving on the frame. Valentina is currently running DT Swiss EX Spline 1 26 inch wheels on the HD-R in 160mm mode. We caught up with Valentina in Finale Ligure and she was only too happy to show us her bike!
