We can already see some of you guys smiling for Cam, whose last appearance in 2013 was last July at the Vallnord World Cup in Andorra. Cam crashed badly and had to be evacuated by helicopter. For 2014, Cam joins the Riding Addiction team for which COMMENCAL is the main sponsor.
Welcome to you Cam!
Cam COLE’s first reaction:
“I am really thankful for the support and effort Thibaut and COMMENCAL have gone through to get the deal done with me for this year. It was a truly last minute thing and it’s come together really well. I’m stoked to be able to have the opportunity to race for Riding Addiction. I think it’s going to be a fun year with new faces and different challenges.”
Thibaut RUFFIN, team manager of COMMENCAL Riding Addiction comments:
“It’s been a couple of seasons we wanted to give a more “international” aspect to the team, when Cam approached me a few weeks ago, he was definitely the rider who could perfectly fit in what we were looking for. He’s a great guy with incredible riding skills, we couldn’t expect for a better rider and teammate. It’s going to be a really exciting season with a really strong lineup in the team and we are all looking forward to get back racing and bring to all our riders the keys to achieve their goals.
“I don’t know why, but I sense some riders more than others. Cam belongs to this category. Plus, his style will be perfectly matching the spirit of our bikes. We go big! We aren’t here to waste our time! I’m very happy for Thibaut as well. He puts a lot of work into it, and this growing power is a big reward for him.
A huge thanks to all the team partners for making this possible and allowing us to chase our dreams:
