Jerome Clementz wins British Enduro Series on prototype Cannondale enduro bike

Tracy Moseley took the win for the women

TRACY MOSELEY and JEROME CLEMENTZ emerged from a muddy DyFi as winners of the second round of the British Enduro series on Sunday.

Spy shots have surfaced of Clementz riding on what looks to be a Cannondale Jekyll prototype with a re-jigged shock linkage. In this video from event organiser Si Paton you can see the Dyad pull shock from the current Jekyll frame has been replaced with a conventional (metric?) RockShox shock and mounted higher up the frame, connected to the downtube.

You may also notice that Clementz is not running a Lefty fork on the new bike, however he ditched that even on his old Jekyll due to being sponsored by RockShox, so it’s not that unusual.

In the 2015 Dirt 100 we described the Jekyll as “not quite be the finished article in terms of damping” with a rear end that was “a shade off the pace” so this change could potentially be a remedy for that. There’s no telling whether this bike will make it into full production but clearly Cannondale isn’t resting on its haunches with its top-of-the-range enduro bike.

A 2015 Jekyll for comparison

Clementz won three of the six stages on this bike to take the overall win with a time of 22:22.922 in difficult conditions. He was chased closely by Matthew Stuttard, who managed to get within five seconds of the French EWS champion. Third place went to Joseph Nation who finished with a time of 22:48.190 – 25 seconds back.

The women’s race was sewn up by Tracy Moseley with a time of 26:02.608 (a time that would have netted her a top 25 in the Elite men’s competition). Traharn Chidley was second and Helen Gaskill slotted in third.

You can expect a full highlights video to drop soon but until then check out the full results here.
