21 year old Enduro World Series racer Isabeau Courdurier has starred in a Trans World Sport documentary segment.
The French rider is one of enduro’s rising stars and finished fourth in the overall standings last year despite studying for a degree alongside her racing. She rides for Rocky Mountain and is sure to only improve on her results as she matures as a racer.
In the documentary Courdurier shows us around her home in Aix en Provence including her garage that houses the bike she first competed on and her current competition bike – a Rocky Mountain Altitude.
Courdurier credits some of her success to incorporating other action sports into her training. She says: “I think I’ve been inspired by my experiences of wakeboarding and skateboarding. I like to make those same kind of fluid lines when I’m on my bike. It’s really important to develop a range of abilities if you’re going to perform well in mountain biking. You have to keep things fresh and try out different sports, not just limit yourself to one.”
