In only its second year of existence the Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team made its mark on the 2016 Enduro World Series season taking 2nd overall in the team competition, 3rd overall in the women’s field – Anita Gehrig, and 3rd overall in the U21 competition. For 2017 the team returns with the same core group of riders, plus some new additions; Zakarias Johansen of Norway, and team mechanic and road manager Mats Pettersson. Zakarias is moving up to contest a full season of EWS racing after dominating the SRAM/Specialized Enduro series last year.
“We are insanely proud of what the team achieved last year, and we’re really looking forward to the new season”, said Ibis president and team manager, Tom Morgan. “The team has really taken on the personality of Ibis, sort of the – ‘Little Team That Could’. It takes a lot more than just talent and training to make all this work, and this group is resourceful, determined, and professional. At the same time they are easy-going and friendly too.”
