Fabien Barel May Know the Secret to Winning Leogang

Fabien Barel is a long-time favorite for any enduro and downhill fan. He's a World Champion, World Cup DH winner and EWS winner...he knows what it takes to win. The calculated Frenchman has taken his winning experience to provide design input on some of the fastest bikes we know today like the Mondraker Summum and various modern Canyon enduro and DH bikes. Like most successful French racers, he was always experimenting with his bikes and analyzing tracks to maximize every fraction of a second. He's more than a yoked speciman of a human with elite-level riding skills, he's a technician and tactician. After a serious leg injury, he determined that his pedal cadence and spin was not round, so he modified his chainring to cater to each leg's powerband; he's that into winning and will stop at nothing to save time.

Today, Fabien is involved with the Canyon Factory DH team and when he's track-side and analyzing lines, we ask him for the secrets to success. After qualifying, Sven Martin picked his brain about what it takes to win at the Leogang World Cup DH. Learn from one of the greatest and get stoked for Leogang race day coming soon!

Stoked Fabien is on their side. Canyon Factory Racing, Troy Brosnan, Kye A'hern and Mark Wallace.
Troy scubbed and squashed entering the second part of the motorway. Less than 2-seconds off the winning pace in qualifying today.
Just a week after his win in Fort William, Kye A'hern blasted into 2nd place in qualis today, just .04 off the pace.
