You may have seen most of our daily race report videos, but now it’s time for us to share our long-awaited 2013 highlights reel with you. It contains a few more interview insights than we showed you in the daily reports, and of course plenty of previously unseen racing footage.
2013’s race was the most exciting we’ve seen in the battle for outright (and indeed Pro Mens’) victory, which was decided on the final day. In fact it came down to just 1 second separating eventual winner Nicolas Lau from runner-up Jérôme Clementz, after 24 Special Stages and 2h 40m 49s (or 8449 seconds) of racing. This might make the battle for 1st place at Mavic® Trans-Provence 2013 the closest run thing in the history of MTB Enduro racing.
Anka Martin of Juliana Bicycles staved off a certain degree of late-week challenge from Emily Horridge and Kelli Emmett to round off a week of general domination, taking her first Mavic® Trans-Provence victory in the women’s GC by just over 6 minutes.
Neither Chris Ball nor Sven Martin put a foot wrong aboard their Santa Cruz Bronsons, with the Scot and sort of Kiwi winning the 2013 Amateur Mens’ and Masters’ categories, respectively.
