The first round of the Enduro World Series at Punta Ala offers a teaser of what to expect from Lapierre in 2014. Nico Vouilloz will be using his new steed for the first time : the Spicy Team.

A honed race machine specced to perfection : e:i shock with the new Monarch Relay, the new 160mm Pike, straight out of the BlackBox programme, SRAM XX1 groupset, new SRAM wheels… in 27.5!


Like all Enduro racers, Nico Vouilloz is impatient to attack the Enduro World Series. He will be joined by the Team Lapierre Gravity Republic riders (Loic Bruni, Sam Blenkinsop, Emmeline Ragot), who are taking part as a preparation for the coming DH season.

Nico will also be wearing his new race kit, specially produced by Troy Lee Designs.
