Cecile Ravanel back shredding

20 April 2020

That's rightt, after probably getting all too comfortable the technical trails of the South of France are once again being torn part by Cecile Ravanel. After a horror crash whilst training at the start of 2019 which saw her break her back, Ravanel's riding future hung all too perilously in the balance. Racing to Cecile and her husband Cedric is much more than simply riding however and the defending double World Champ shocked everyone when she appeared at round one of the season to help support the Commencal Enduro Team.

Cautiously, Ravanel returned to the bike and was often seen rolling around the bottom of the stages, watching the racing. Cecile's return to racing may yet remain in the future but without doubt it's fantastic to see her back on the bike.

Cecile had this to say about returning to the trails:

"I guess calling somewhere ’home’ means way more than we think. I live in the South of France and I know this is definitely where I want to stay in the future. This is where I grew up and where my family and friends are. Looking for some new places has always been something I enjoyed a lot and this edit is a simply way to share this passion with you."
