Impatient to reveal this new Sunn to the world, our pilots were eager to perform well during one the most anticipated races this season. They definitely fulfilled their goals especially with the 5th place finish of Thomas, fighting for the win on day 1.

Despite a massive crash on one of the first stages on Sunday, Thomas pushed through the pain on stage 5 to cross the line in 5th, with the best in the world. He showed maximum determination on his Kern LT. We are sur that this is just a start for him and that he’ll confirm in 2 weeks in Colorado and Canada.

Kilian Bron, our media rider, performed really well. He made it into the Top 40 with a superb 13th position on stage 3, good odds for the next races!

He will participate at the MaxiAvalanche Europ’Cup in Cervinia, Italy before going on another trip mid-August.
