Lezyne is dedicated to supporting athletes with the same level of respect and commitment to the sport. Today, Lezyne is proud to have on board The Riding Addiction/COMMENCAL DH team, with Thibaut Ruffin, Remi Thirion, and Myriam Nicole (winner of 2011 World Cup) as partners, promoting excellence at the best downhill tracks and spots of the world.
This structure was created in 2006, by Thibaut Ruffin, downhill rider, in the optical to operate independently at the highest level in his favorite sport.
Having travelled the world for 3 seasons, and participating in major national and international events as the only rider of Riding Addiction, he decided in late 2009 to expand the team to give it a stronger image and to keep rising in the mountain bike teams' hierarchy.
Myriam Nicole, a rising star of french downhill and Gaëtan Ruffin, Thibaut's brother and former high level alpine skier joined Riding Addiction, with the same objective: Bear to the highest Riding Addiction's colors and those of its partners.
This season, Myriam is on perfect consistency on the top spot of the world cup podiums, Thibaut has scored his best world cup result ever in Mont Sainte Anne with his 14th place as well as Gaëtan with his 51st place in Windham and recently his 9th place at the French championships.
The technical crew, Alex Bastien (team manager assistant), Ben Texier (mechanical), Kéno Derleyn (photographer), and Thierry Neau (cameraman) will work hard to bring to the team and its partners the best performances. Team Riding Addiction uses all Lezyne products, and they are definitely working their way to new heights.
Lezyne is looking forward to more high level Downhill Mountain Bike racing from this awesome team!
