Pro Bike Check: Manuel Fumic’s Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team
Exceptional athlete and style-icon: Manuel Fumic isn’t just one of the fastest XC riders on the planet he is also the most stylish XC pilot. The multiple German champion and Cannondale Factory Team rider set himself against the world’s elite enduro riders at the Finale EWS round. On the one hand modern XC race courses are becoming increasingly technical whilst on the other the 2014 Enduro World Series were a succession of superlatives in terms of the fitness required. No wonder that the elite cross country riders see them as a challenge. For his venture in expanding his horizons Fumic chose to use the bike from his team colleague and 2013 EWS champion Jerome Clementz: here you find out about his Cannondale Jekyll.
