Rocky Mountain Bicycles has announced its Enduro squad for the 2021 season. The team will continue racing in the Enduro World Series with partner Race Face Performance Products, and consist of three Canadian athletes, Jesse Melamed, Rémi Gauvin, and Andréane Lanthier Nadeau. Rocky Mountain has built a dedicated program over the years with long-term partners and athletes, by staying committed to the Enduro discipline.
The riders' ability to perform on and off the racetrack and engage with mountain bikers around the world has made for an unforgettable chapter in racing. 2020 was a challenging year, however the team landed on the top step of the podium for two out of three races - and are excited to keep up that momentum in 2021.
"The Rocky Mountain Enduro program has been one of the most consistently high-performing teams throughout the first eight years of the EWS. Thanks to the best supporting sponsors and structure you could ask for, the team has achieved podium results in every year of its existence. Rocky Mountain has stuck with me through the lows to get me back to the highs and onto the top step of the podium. I am proud to have been a part of this legacy since the beginning and stoked for the coming season!"
“I am really happy to sign with the Rocky Mountain Race Face Enduro Team for another year. 2021 marks my seventh year with Rocky Mountain and fourth year as a member of our current team structure. Working with Rocky Mountain and Race Face, two brands from my own backyard, has been an amazing experience over the past few years. We have one of the strongest team on the circuit, fast bikes, and work with some of the best partners in the industry. I'm excited to get to Europe to show the world what myself and our team is capable of in 2021!"
Andréane Lanthier Nadeau
“Staying at the sharp end of the field requires a strong program and we've built that the past few years with our sponsors, staff, and my teammates. We've not only learned how to be with each other, but also how to work together. That's what makes our team solid and allows us to perform our best. I'm preparing to be ready to rise up to the challenge of staying on top.”
