REMY ABSALON Commencal - Superteam
Remy Absalon is a member of Commencal’s SUPERTEAM and has recently joined up with Lezyne. He is an extremely talented and well-versed enduro racer. He has a staggering list of accomplishments and is without a doubt a top contender in every enduro race that he enters, mixing it up with the likes of Nico Vouilloz, Fabien Barel, Jerome Clementz, Mark Weir, Ross Schnell, and Rene Wildhaber Lezyne couldn’t be happier to work with Remy in 2012 as he will, without a doubt, be putting up some really great numbers and pushing the envelope of what is possibly on and off the bike. The “enduro” race format is gathering so much momentum, especially over in Europe, that Lezyne is proud to be a part of the forward push. We are really excited to see where the sport goes in the future because this style of racing is so inviting to both riders and spectators.
