The first round of the Enduro World Series at Punta Ala in Italy is nearly upon us, and we’re pretty excited to see how the new disciple works out. Just as exciting is the new crop of bikes sure to spring over the course of the Series: first up is Nico Vouilloz’s 650B Spicy Team.

It comes with the new electronic e:i shock, Monarch Relay, the new 160mm Pike, SRAM XX1 groupset, and new SRAM wheels in 27.5. Lapierre says this is a taster of what’s to come from its range in 2014. Bring on next year already.
