Enduro World Series announces the 26 official teams for 2014

Today the Enduro World Series has announced the 2014 team roster: A total of 26 teams will participate in the seven races all around the world.

As usual, some fresh faces appeared on the scene and some well known riders changed their sponsors. Rémy Absalon for example will ride for SCOTT SR Suntour and YETI bikes will focus completely on enduro in 2014, adding the 19 year old Richie Rude to their team. Also the series welcomes some new founded racing teams, like the German Focus Trail Team and Spanish Intense GoPro.
