Italian and Polish UCI EDR Mountain Bike Events completed.

Primex European Division supported Mountain Biking athlete Liam Clement (19) has recently returned after a busy period in Europe competing in the first 2 rounds of the World Enduro Series. Liam competes in the highly competitive Under 21s class against 50+ competitors representing 16 countries from around the globe.

Round 1 took place at Finale Ligure in the steep Rocky Mountains above the Italian Riviera seaside resort. The event turned out to be extremely tough with a 30-degree heat and very tight transition times. Liam dug deep and completed the event without any time penalties scoring UCI World series points qualifying him for the full series.

After a long drive through Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, and Czechia the team reached Poland to compete in the steep wooded mountains close to Bielsko-Biala. The Polish event covered 5 stages of steep technical tracks which also had very fast sections. Liam competing as one of only 2 UK qualified riders again scored UCI points finishing in 30th position to claim an overall World ranking of 25th.

Liam now has 2 UK based Events to compete in: Ard Moors and the Tweedlove International, before a trip to the French Alps and Switzerland for further UCI EDR World Series events.

Liam passes on "Massive thanks to Primex European Division, The Dirtfund Project, Merida Bikes, Royal Racing, Siverback Xtreme, Smith Optics UK, 7Idp protection and Danny Harts Descend Bike park who help make it happen".
