It was a great weekend for Muc-Off sponsored Team Lapierre Gravity Republic! Here’s what the team had to say about the Fort William experience…
"With 3 riders in the top 5 of their category the season starts well for the Lapierre Gravity Republic team.
After being injured on the (mythic) track of Fort William few days ago , Loris VERGIER was finally here. First world cup race and first top 5 for him with a good 4th place in the junior category.
In the women category it was also the first race for Lapierre Gravity Republic for Emmeline RAGOT. First french rider and nice 3rd place for her.
With a 3rd and a 7th place during the qualifications, Sam BLENKINSOP and Loic BRUNI looked ready to start the season with a top result. With a mistake on the top of the track Loic finally took a 16th place (first french rider) but proove during the whole week-end that he’s ready to have good results for his first ELITE season.
On his side Sam did a good run and took an interesting 4th place. After a “serious” winter training preparation Sam looks ready to have a good 2013 season”
