Behold the world’s raddest downhill team: Commencal / Muc-Off
This crew of talented riders has taken the downhill scene by storm the past couple of years, and it wasn’t just the 26 World Cup podium finishes (including 18 gold medals) that hooked us in, but also their unconquerable spirits.
Commencal / Muc-Off is packed with incredible talent. There’s Myriam Nicole, the 2019 World Champion and prior World Cup overall winner, Amaury Pierron is a previous UCI World Cup overall winner, and the up-and-coming Thibaut Dapréla. Along with Gaetan Ruffin, Thibaut Ruffin and Tristan Lemire. With an absolutely stacked roster for the season, the team are sure to be at the sharp end of the results. In particular, there’s going to be drama for Amuary Pierron, as he goes head-to-head with fellow countryman Loic Bruni – the pair have been trading wins the last few seasons and we expect more of the same incredible action.
'While our first year with MUC-OFF as much as 2020 more generally has been impacted by the pandemic, and despite a couple few wins and podiums in that shortened season, we feel that we haven't had the chance yet to show what the COMMENCAL/MUC-OFF fusion is capable of. We are looking forward to the 2021 season like never before and chase these top steps of the podiums and to release some exciting projects we've been working on with the British crew.'
