Fabien and Guillaume raced the Enduro which had 4 awesome stages in the middle of an amazing landscape.Guillaume finished 34th and Fabien finished 5th just behind Sam Blenkinsop, Remy Absalon , Nicolas Quéré and James Nicoles.
Holly is spending her time at home in Canada making to most of the few days of nice weather to get out on her bike and is really happy to have a clear view on what races she needs to prepare for this season.
Mick and Tracey have been training very hard in Cairns. Between the DH track, the road cycling and the gym, it has been nearly non stop since they have got back from indonesia.However we have recently got some bad news as well - Tracey has broken her collar bone after crashing on a jump she was filming for the team video. She was well taken care of at the local hospital and was operated on that same day. The break was clean and the doctors are satisfied with the way the operation went so it should be a speedy recovery for Tracey who should be out just matter of weeks. She is obviously very disappointed to get injured again but as usual she is already thinking about training and getting back on her bike.
We wish Tracey a speedy recovery.
