350 participants, a pumptrack, an enduro race and perfect weather: that's all it took for the 2017 edition of the Giromagny Enduro organized by the Giromagny team to go perfectly!
ENDURO & PUMPTRACK
On August 27, the Enduro de Giromagny was held once again. This race is renowned for its fun and meticulous organization: impeccable singletrack, plenty to eat and drink (and not just a little) and top-notch organizers! On the program for the 2017 edition was the Giromagny enduro, on which riders would compete, as well as the inauguration of the local club's new pumptrack track. A few timed "pumptrack challenge" sessions opened the hostilities between the riders. 8 of them qualified and competed in a night final that saw Yoan Pesenti dominate Florian Grohens and Jérôme Clementz.
