Devinci reloaded for the EWS season:
---------------------------------------------------
Devinci Riders Bring Speed, Skill to the Enduro World Series Stage.



With a new Enduro World Series (EWS) season in sight, Cycles Devinci is proud to present this year’s team roster, ready to dominate podiums while piloting the latest iteration of the race-winning Spartan.

Frenchman Damien Oton, the “Catalan Eagle,” once again leads the charge - entering his fifth year as a pro and celebrating his fifth year with the Devinci family. Oton snatched a trio of podium finishes in 2017, capping a remarkable season in Finale Ligure, Italy, by landing on the highest step of the box.

"I’m stoked to continue with the team, and I’m looking forward to kicking off the season with a talented and highly motivated teammate." - Damien Oton

Alongside Oton, 21-year-old Kiwi phenom Keegan Wright joins the Devinci ranks—with impressive results in tow. In 2016, he won the New Zealand Enduro overall title. And riding that momentum, last year Wright captured overall honors at the Downhill National Cup. He also pocketed podiums at the New Zealand Elite Downhill National Championship and in front of a riotous home crowd at the Crankworx Rotorua Pump Track Challenge.

"I’m absolutely over the moon to be racing for such an amazing bike brand. Ever since I hopped on a Spartan last fall, I’ve felt right at home. My ultimate goal is to be on that podium, and I can’t wait to blast into the international season with all cylinders firing." - Keegan Wright

I just got off the phone to Kye's family dog, Ricky. He has told me all the inside info in which Kye is going to France for 'Team camp', a secret code for a family holiday in the alps to go skiing before heading off to test out his new bike from Antidote bikes. Running upside down BOS forks, DVO pull shocks, Maxxis front and Schwalbe rear tires, anodised green valve stems, 28.25" wheels with 33 spokes, magura front brake on the right and trp rear brake on the left with box components drivetrain. Now Ricky has never ever lied in his life so this must be nothing but the truth, I've added a photo of Ricky so you can see the face providing this info.

Not sure if this is news but there was a guy filing at Santa's Village on a Devinci wearing a Uniour Tools Devinci jersey. No name on the jersey.

No suspension sponsor? Or yet to be announced?

Obviously didn't want to be giving Sram the logo placement in that shot.
