In round 5 in Millau (France), the Commençal Vallnord athlete equipped by Northwave claimed the fourth win out of five Enduro World Series stages. Oton placed third in the men’s category
Fourth win on five stages, undisputed dominance in the overall standings: Cécile Ravanel’s triumphal march doesn’t look like stopping in the 2017 Enduro World Series. On Friday June 30th and July 1st, in round 5 the athlete of Commençal Vallnord equipped by Northwave dominated the opponents in a wet race, preceding another rider supported by the Italian brand, Isabeau Courdurier of Team SUNN (+1.34). Swiss Anita Gehrig claimed the third place.
“Saturday was hard, but so was Friday. In the first day I had a crash in the last stage and my ankle is pretty sore so I just tried to ride safe. I just hope that the next three rounds will be dry now”, Ravanel commented.
Ravanel’s domination is reflected in the GC: the French rider leads with 1950 points ahead of German Ines Thoma (1480) and Brit Katy Wilson (1460), with three stages to go.
Northwave conquered a podium spot in the men’s race with Devinci Global Racing’s Damien Oton, third in France behind winner Adrien Dailly and Alexandre Cure. Fifth place for Oton’s teammate Theo Galy.
