Our wonderful sport is constantly growing and evolving. With the increased media and industry focus on Enduro we are seeing more events and participants than ever before. From local regional events to a fully international Enduro World Series, enduro is flourishing and with it the media coverage.
With such big changes in such a short amount of time, you have to sit, relax and think before going forward. Think of what is your own vision, of what you want to do, what keeps you motivated, what you want to bring in the sport and how to feed your need and still make it enjoyable. I have had lots of support from major brands over the past few years, despite the fact that the sport of Enduro wasn’t yet that well known internationally. They made it possible to live my dream of travelling and racing, they have become family for me and I can’t thank them enough for all they have done. It makes perfect sense to continue working together. Working harder to reach bigger greater goals.
I am proud and happy to extend my partnership with Cannondale Bicycles, Mavic, Sram, Rock Shox, Avid, Truvative, WTB and Tekday for at least 2 more years. Knowing that I will have even better support and the best equipment to reach my goals while continuing to have fun working together. To continue to evolve and move forward you also need fresh vision, support and relationships. It is more than a pleasure to welcome some new partners with Monster Energy, Julbo Eyewear, Birzman and Muc-off. This combination allows me to see a bright future with partners that are 100% behind me with mutual appreciation for professionalism, passion and fun. My racing focus will include the 7 series races of the Enduro World Series, selected EU and Canadian Crankworx events, Megavalanche and some other select local Enduro events.
Mountain biking is not only racing. It runs deeper in my soul. I don’t want to forget what excites me the most and what originally brought me to Enduro, so you can be sure I will take every opportunity to travel, discover new places and meet new people on my adventures all around the world with a full “discovery program” ill be embarking on.
To share our program with everybody who is interest we are planning to release a monthly video covering our adventures, races and much more. This video series “12 month/12 stories” will come out the last day of each month, focusing on the riding and people we’ve met along the way. To compliment this you will also be able to see a monthly audiovisual slideshow on the 15th of every month.
Here the link for the first episode:
We also have a new website www.jeromeclementz.com designed by Razorimages.
