WTB-Equipped Riders Dominate Third Annual 7-Day; 26-Stage Trans Provence Enduro Race
Clementz, Barel and Weir Finish in Top 5 Overall Using the Latest in MTB Technology from WTB
Monte-Carlo, MONACO (CFEpr+) October 11, 2011 – - WTB racers Jerome Clementz (Cannondale), Fabien Barel (Mondraker) and Mark Weir (WTB/Cannondale/Fox) finished first, third and fourth in the third annual Trans-Provence Enduro Stage Race last week using WTB products. The race featured twenty-six primarily downhill single-track stages over a seven-day period, starting near the town of Gap in the South of France, and winding its way nearly 200 miles farther south to Monaco, with over 3100 feet of climbing, and 5000 feet of descent.
Clementz and Weir utilized WTB’s new All-Mountain Casing Tubeless Compatible System(TCS) Weirwolf and Wolverine tires and Stryker All Mountain TCS Wheelsets to stay at the front of the pack throughout the week. TCS wheels, rims and tires provide the only UST-Certified Sealant-based System on the planet.
“This race was an awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience,” states Weir, “we ran our new TCS tires with ‘InnerPeace’ sidewalls. They feature a butyl liner that is lighter than UST tire sidewalls, and provides excellent puncture protection and stability when we are hitting it hard! It was so fun to ride from stage to stage with your competitors and then put the hammer down all the way to Monaco.”
