24-04-2015, CANYON The Strive Diaries Entry One

Sliding through Rotorua's Rootfest

Roots, ferns, and even more roots. The first round of the 2015 Enduro World Series saw the Canyon Factory Enduro Team back in action on the other side of the world at Carnkworx Rotorua in New Zealand. The old master Fabien Barel was back in the hunt to take an impressive 2nd place. Ines Thomas' solid 6th and Joe Barnes' 20th meant CFET leave the first round as the number one team in the series. Ludo May was out on the sidelines for the race after coming down hard and breaking his collarbone in training, but he's healing up well and will be back on the bike by the next stop. Bring on Round 2 in Ireland!

Watch how the guys got in our Strive Diaries roundup edit below.
