The year has started quite intense for the Vertigo family. Being the creation of the Junior Factory Team announced at the end of 2017, it was finally time to present its first French riders. Taking advantage of the weekend Vertigo also celebrated the 1st Vertigo Customer’s Trial, which was attended nearly by 70 riders, who had the opportunity to enjoy a great morning of trials riding constituted by an 8 sections trial.
On Saturday, the 5 French riders that became the first members of the newly created Vertigo Junior Factory Team, received their customized kits. They will wear Clice gear, a Vertigo helmet by Mots, and boots provided by Gaerne. Their names are Allegre Aurepen, Axel de la Mata, Fabien Menard and Theo Lairis. They all compete in the French Championship.
Still on Saturday, we lived a great day of training alongside with the official Vertigo riders, with our Team Manager Dougie Lampkin having a close look to the developments of Jorge Casales, Arnau Farré and Berta Abellán. The perfect weather left great terrain conditions at the Noassar Trial Area. We also spotted two Crossbow Riders sharing some training. Their names are Marti Russinyol and Guillem Oliver, both young and talented riders that are set make a great season in their respective classes. Joan Torres wasn’t able to attend the presentation due to a febrile process.
In addition, the Crossbow Bullet also had its opportunity to shine. Everyone who was able to test it gave a pretty positive feedback, which means that its development is going in the right way. The Vertigo Mini Vandal also rode its first kilometres thanks to the youngest riders.
The following day it was time for Vertigo’s customers to step in. Nearly 70 trial lovers came to the Hotel Puig Francó to take part in the 1st Vertigo Experience, an action that was born with the aim to enjoy trials riding in a unique background, offering to those who place their trust in our bikes a phenomenal experience aboard their Vertigos.
To warm up before starting the trial, sandwiches and drinks were offered to all the registered riders, and after taking the family photo, the 1st Vertigo Experience finally kicked off. The official Vertigo riders as well as the Junior Factory Team members also took part in this feast.
The feedback received was very positive, which reinforced Vertigo’s intentions to celebrate new editions, and hopefully, see the green Vertigo family growing even more.
