Press Release:

Young, talented and dedicated to his sport, at only 20 years old, Faustin FIGARET displays a quite impressive level of professionalism. His 2013 international results (14th in Vallnord and 26th in the World Cup overall ranking) are the proof he still has a lot of potential to progress. For these reasons, COMMENCAL decided to support him for the next two seasons and believes in him more than ever. Welcome to COMMENCAL Faustin FIGARET!


Here are a few words from those concerned:

- So Faustin, are you stoked?
“Yes, I’m very happy to have signed with COMMENCAL. I have received a warm welcome, I’m feeling good in this family atmosphere and I’m stoked on what the staff is providing!”

- After riding your new rig, how are you feeling?
“I’m feeling very comfortable on it, the bike is very good at everything and performs great! I still need to work on a couple of settings to start off the season with a WARRIOR MACHINE!”

- How is your 2014 preparation going?
“I’m working really hard with 2F Sports and I’m already feeling the difference. Everything is planned so that the upcoming season goes well. I’m feeling confident and can’t wait for the first races to start!”

A few words from the Boss:

- Max COMMENCAL, why choose Faustin FIGARET?
“I've always wanted to win races, everyone knows that, while finding and helping new talent. Faustin is still very young and finishing in 14th in Vallnord last summer points to a bright future. In addition to that, Faustin is a very conscientious, hard-working boy, which makes us believe he can fulfill his dreams and ours.”

- Last year, Remi THIRION won his first World Cup in Vallnord on a COMMENCAL bike. We can only wish him the same future, can’t we?
“No doubt that with the Riding Addictions and especially Remi THIRION, they will know how to motivate each other to face the big teams in the big races where the level keeps increasing gradually.”

- Will COMMENCAL be stronger than ever for 2014?
“All our riders can count on us to get things done and provide the gear they need to perform. Our partnership with BOS is getting bigger and bigger. We are about to live an incredible adventure!”

Remi THIRION also comments Faustin’s arrival:

“Faustin is a young rider who wasn’t necessarily in the first spots when he started racing downhill, but he persisted and found what was missing for him over the season. He worked hard to improve his fitness. In that respect, there’s no secret; I went through that too. He has good riding skills so I think he can do very well.”
