Isabeau Courdurier said…
“I have been racing MTB bikes since I was six years old. I raced cross-country at the national level until I was 17. It is at this age that I discovered enduro. I felt in love with the discipline and wanted to see how far I could go.
“I believe hard work always pays off and I try my best to get better every single day.
“After being three times Enduro world series vice-champion I reached the top step in 2019. It is my biggest achievement yet but I am still working very hard toward my main goal: being the fastest and best rider I can.
“While working hard toward my athlete goals I studied marketing and got my master’s degree in 2016.
My passion for mountain bikes has brought me to many amazing places, I also met incredible people and it made me a better human. This is why I am also doing my best to give back to the MTB community
