Nothing better than racing at home!

The weekend went good for me; on Saturday I won 2 of the 3 stage of the enduro, even with a crash on the stage 2.

On Sunday I had the choice of the gate start but I don’t really like those start I always get into trouble ; ) but this time everything went well and I won the first final with 38s. Final number 2 I got a better start and run away after 8 minutes of the track.

Like I say it’s always good to win at home!

Special thanks to Martí for the brilliant work on my Santa Cruz Bronson during the weekend and of course all the sponsors for the great support.

Before I start the newsletter I want to take the opportunity to thanks Pit Stop for this incredible weekend ! Kevin had a little accident during the week and he made anyway with Cyrille to support the Brigade ! Ones again thanks for the support !

Going to les 2 Alpes I knew the tracks will be fast and long and I was happy as well than all the liaison was on chairlift : ) Stage one was definitely the hardest physically with a big and long climb ! On my side I missed the cut at the track than people was taking and lost a lot of time there without forgetting as well than I climb the track in a steep section because the tape was gone and I didn’t t want to cut ! Then I run up the course and went back to the track ! Lost again around 15 seconds !

All the other track was more technical, with good overage of high speed and corner in the grass.

Bryan and myself had a blast riding in les 2 Alpes and we want to thanks as well the people from les 2 Alpes for the lodging and the warmed welcome.

Bryan had a good weekend ending 18 overall and myself 7th !

Bryan And myself used the full range of bikes from Santa Cruz, Bryan raced with the Bronson and I raced with my Tall boy LTC, 2 different bikes but 2 incredible bikes for Enduro riding !

We are consistence and we are feeling more confident for the racing coming soon.

Thanks so much to the sponsors for the incredible support.

This week end was the third round of Mondraker Enduro Series in Maçanet de Cabrenys (Spain).

I have been wining the last round in Vigo so I decided to don’t take part to the Val Di Sole World Cup and due to my accident last year I wasn’t comfortable to go back there too.

I did 110kms in three days, beautiful track and a lot of people showing up for this event. Downhill is definitely where I have the most fun but it’s fun as well to meet people in Enduro and see people riding different bikes (26”, 27,5”, 29”).

I decided for the event to use my Bronson and I get a blast this week end, taking the second place behind Damien Oton. I crashed two times on stage number 3; I really liked this special and tried to give it too much!

On stage number 4 a little stop too but at the end of the day I lost only 4s on Damien Oton.

See you at the end of the month for Enduro World Series in Vall d’Allos.

Cedric Gracia Through my eyes #1 – Punta Ala from Lucas Stanus on Vimeo.

Punta Ala, the first Enduro Series!

We arrive on Tuesday night in Punta Ala, Italy, to do some practice because the track is around 65km and 2000m of climb; it’s difficult for me and needed one or two days of recovery before the race.

After practicing on all specials, number 1 and 3 were the most technical, number 2 the fastest, 4 and 5 important to see who will have enough power until the finish!

I get mechanical problem on stage 4 during the race, I have to run the full stage + the liaisons all the way back to stage 5.

If I look at the race I think I did ok and I could better for sure on next round of Enduro Series.

Thanks to my sponsors, Kevin from Pit Stop and see you to next race in Fort William!
