French mountain bike star, triple downhill world champion and graduate engineer Fabien Barel is a Jack of all trades. The 32-year old Frenchman is a truly seasoned pro. His meticulous event preparation, his passion and fighting spirit as well as his unwavering quest for perfection have made the likeable Frenchman a true downhill legend. As well as participating in the World Enduro Series and other top-class enduro races Fabien will contribute his many years of experience to Canyon and advance R&D in the gravity discipline.
“I think it’s going to be very exciting to experience the premiere of the Enduro World Series in 2013 and with Canyon I’ve got a really reliable partner at my side.”
Wherever they turn up, there is always something going on. Joe Barnes and the “Dudes of Hazzard” are an unbeatable combo and we therefore got them on board very quickly. Joe as the official rider of the Canyon Factory Enduro Team and his colleagues Liam Moynihan and Fergus Lamb – who are also riding Canyon bikes – will support the team throughout the season. The “Dudes of Hazzard” already caused quite a stir on the enduro scene last season and in 2013 the fun-loving and adventurous Scotsman together with Fabien Barel will form an unbeatable duo at the top of the Canyon Factory Enduro Team in the battle for podium places.
She is currently one of the fastest and fittest German female enduro riders. Her list of successes and above all those of last season speak for themselves: First place at the Specialized Enduro Ride in Willingen, victory in three stages of the Specialized enduro Series, first place at the Dakine Trailfox in Flims and the list just goes on. The tough and fun-loving girl from the Oberallgäu region has major aims for the new season and we are really looking forward to supporting her on her continued path to success.
“Light, lively, agile and if it also looks good then that’s all the better. Canyon has succeeded in combining all these characteristics into one bike – bellissimo!”
He has been successful on the gravity scene for years now, above all in downhill and also works as an editor at MTB-News.de [IBC]. These are the ideal prerequisites for a successful first pro enduro season. His aims for the season are clearly defined: He wants to achieve podium positions in races with a demanding downhill focus to collect crucial points in the Enduro World Series. This is an aim that the ambitious Bavarian is sure to achieve with flying colours because speed and the extremes are precisely his strength.
At the tender age of just 20 Marco Bühler is the youngster in the Canyon Factory Enduro Team. In his relatively short career he has already achieved several successes and we are very happy to be accompanying him on his career path in the enduro pro scene. One thing is certain – we are sure to hear a lot more from this young man this season, because Marco is very highly motivated and just can’t wait to start competing!
“For me the Strive is the perfect bike for almost every type of racing. It is a great bike for fast pedalling, suppresses squat and is a great climber as well. The somewhat shorter wheel base and the lower bottom bracket combine to make the bike lively, agile and the rider feels at home in any type of terrain.”
