Orbea Announces 2020 Enduro Team

Damien Oton Joins Revamped 2020 Orbea Fox Enduro Team

Damian Oton will join Slovenian, Vid Persak, as an experienced leader of the new-look team. The Frenchman, two-time EWS winner and three-time runner-up overall in the competition, will be one to follow in 2020.

Damien has been part of just one team after becoming a professional Enduro rider in 2014. “I’ve had some awesome years in my previous team - what I am today is partly thanks to that as well. I needed some extra motivation for the new season, which I have now by joining Orbea. Plus, there are several aspects that I like about the brand, like its proximity to the Pyrenees where I live, and also the way they operate, differently to the rest”, Damien adds. "I want to take the Rallon to its first podium in one of the EWS races.”

Racing alongside Oton, Vid Persak continues his progression and we’ll have to keep a close eye on him this season, especially in his home country of Slovenia where finished fifth in the 2018 EWS stop.

Another new development this season is the creation of a national team to complement the EWS squad. Gabriel Torralba, a five-time Spanish Enduro Champion who has been in the Orbea family from the start in 2018, and Edgar Carballo, a member of the Spanish team in the Enduro World Series Trophy of Nations who will compete in the European Enduro Series and the Spanish National Enduro Championship.
