Yoann Barelli is one of the most exciting riders on the enduro scene. His results are legit and he probably has more fun than any other competitor, too. The Giant Factory Off-Road racer showed us how prepared (or unprepared) he is for a big, multi-day event like Trans-Provence. Dig in, learn and let the fun stay with you.
