Lemoine Invitational Official Highlights

All the action from the inaugural Tomas Lemoine Invitation from Marseille, France!

Lemoine Invitational Official Highlights

As the sun rose over the beautiful city of Marseille it lit up the jumps and ramps of the inaugural Canyon CLLCTV Lemoine Invitational. An event conceptualized and brought to life by Tomas Lemoine, this was not planned purely as a contest, but as a cultural event, with a packed schedule of riding, music, and even tattoo artists. There was no better place to be than the All Road Skatepark in May.

 

Tomas had a custom bike made for the event, that showed elements of his life on and off the bike, as well as representing Marseille. One lucky fan is set to receive a copy of this frame from Canyon.

The contest kicked off, and fans were not disappointed watching their heroes, with so much variation like the unique style of Erik Fedko (GER) and Jake Atkinson (GBR), with everyone putting on an amazing performance during the whole event. 

"Amazing event, so grateful to be invited to ride with the best in the game! Such a friendly atmosphere all week. I can't wait to be out here riding again! Big thanks to Tomas and everyone who made it happen” – Jake Atkinson

It was never going to be easy to defeat a local legend on home soil, but the contest was won by Tim Bringer with Tomas Lemoine finishing 2nd, ahead of the always impressive Nicholi Rogatkin.

The Muc-Off Best Trick took off late in the afternoon, with some amazing performances but it was again Bringer who took the win home with a flip whip to bar on the wooden box. The Best style was awarded to Lukas Schäfer.

“I’m so happy about this week and how the event was, all the riders sent it! The riding level was serious, and I was impressed to see each one’s creativity, and style in the park. I was dreaming about having an international park contest in MTB and we made it, I hope we will be back for more because the vibe was insane all week.” – Tomas Lemoine 

 

“We love that Lemoine’s approach to MTB pushes boundaries and defies convention. So, when Tomas came to us with an idea to host a park contest for MTB, we were stoked to support and witness his vision brought to life. It was awesome to see all the riders having a good time and so many fans enjoying the show all week. Bring on the next Lemoine Invitational!” Jack Noy, Brand Manager, Canyon MTB | Gravity.
