«We are very excited and happy to announce the partnership with SUNN FRENCH CONNEXION RACING BY ALPE D’HUEZ enduro team. – said Davide Riva, FSA OEM sales manager and product development. – Few years ago the first collaboration with the Sunn Enduro team allowed us to start our commitment in the Enduro race field, a segment that we at FSA really like because here the components are at the service of athletes who have impressive downhill riding skills and control, like DH champions and at the same time they have the legs and breath to stress the products with peaks of watts like in XC race. Enduro sums up all the best of the off-road world in one explosive and highly competitive formula. For this reason, we have welcomed with great enthusiasm the opportunity to follow the Sunn brand again in the new adventure team SUNN FRENCH CONNEXION RACING BY ALPE D’HUEZ - thanks to Thomas Manfe, Andrew Sykes and their crew for this wonderful opportunity for the next two years, where we aim for the highest steps of the podium and the development of products always more avant-garde thanks to the top-level race field experience ».
