Ibis bikes has today announced it has signed François Bailly-Maitre for the 2017 Enduro World Series season.
Francois has struck a deal that will see him on an “independent program for Ibis”, racing the entire EWS season. François has been one of the most consistent top 10 finishers in the EWS, at 8th overall in 2016, 11th in 2015 and 8th in 2014. The 31-year-old Frenchman has ridden for BMC for the past three years.
Ibis finished second in the EWS overall thanks to the strong performance of the Gehrig twins and Robin Wallner, all of whom return for 2016.
