1st World Cup, first victory! Our new DH could not have a better start. Three weeks after winning the British Downhill Series on the same track, Emmeline Ragot repeated her performance this week-end, taking at the same time her first World Cup victory this season, and offering a stunning launch for the new Lapierre DH!

 

 

A new Lapierre DH to take you ever higher!

The Team FDJ.fr came to the Giro with the ambition to win at least one stage. They achieved much more than that!

 

For this 2014 edition of Paris - Roubaix, the riders of the team FDJ.fr took to the cobbles on their new Lapierre Pulsium, developed specifically for this kind of demanding race.

 

A few months have passed since the outstanding end of the 2013 season from Team Lapierre Gravity Republic. However, the staff and the riders have kept up the pressure this winter, working hard to aim even higher, and are starting this new season ranked N°1 Team with the UCI. 

 

This weekend Pietermaritzburg welcomes the first round of the UCI World Cup. Team Lapierre Gravity Republic riders will be out in their new kit for the first time, with a matching design on their bikes.

 

He already set the tone. Arnaud Démare had designated Ghent -Wevelgem as one of his main goals of the season. One week before the Tour of Flanders, two weeks before Paris -Roubaix, Gent Wevelgem opens this period of classics and cobblestones.

 

 

Milan San-Remo took place yesterday in atrocious conditions.  On the FDJ.fr side, hopes were placed in Arnaud Démare, currently in good shape, and Yoann Offredo, for who Milan San-Remo is one of his favorite races of the year.

The Lapierre Froggy has a new baby brother! The range now comprises 2 freeride bikes, making the mountains accessible to the whole family.

 

Since the beginning of this season, the FDJ.fr team riders have been equipped with an exclusive design Xelius EFI, produced specially for 2014. Already accumulating victories for Nacer Bouhanni, Arnaud Démare and Arthur Vichot, expect to see this Xelius EFI on the podium regularly throughout the season.

 

The 2014 season of the Team Lapierre Gravity Republic started as the last one finished: at top speed! At Mount Hutt - New Zealand - Sam Blenkinsop picked up his first title of the season.

 

The roads of Paris - Nice promised an epic show and seemed favorable to strong all-around riders. Arthur Vichot was designated as leader of the FDJ.fr Team for this race. He finished it in the best possible way: with a victory!
