Fresh off winning the Enduro World Series overall team title in 2017, the Ibis Cycles squad returns for 2018 with some new faces but still determined to hold onto their title.

Team leader Robin Wallner returns for his third season hoping to build on what he achieved this past season and finally score a podium and top 10 overall ranking for the series. The 29-year-old Swede had a breakout year in 2017 with four top 10 results, including a fourth place finish at the Whistler EWS stop.

Check out the Mtbr long term review of the Ibis Mojo HD4, which will be the team’s primary weapon of choice.

Joining Wallner on the Ibis team is newcomer Lewis Buchanan (Scotland). Last year, was a comeback year for the 24-year-old. After suffering a serious injury that prematurely ended his 2016 campaign, his steady results in 2017 hinted that he wasn’t far off the form that previously had him in top 10.

Also joining the team is Rebecca “Bex” Baraona. Another 24-yearp-old, Bex has been one of the top privateers in the EWS over the past two seasons, scoring a host of top 10 placings without the support of a full-fledged team. “It feels really crazy to have just signed my first pro contract,” she said. “Pinch me!”

Welcome to the big show Bex Baraona.

A veteran of the Ibis squad, Dillon Santos, 21, returns to the team with his sights set on contesting the entire EWS season. Taken under the wing of Wallner and the other more experienced riders on the team, Santos has been a willing apprentice. The California-based rider hopes to prove that he has what it takes to compete with the world’s best.
