01/11/2014 - Méribel organisers rewarded by the UCI and the CDOS !. What a debut on the MTB World Cup Scene! Last October the UCI, media, riders, teams and sponsors voted Méribel ‘Best Organisation’ on the 2014 circuit.

It was the first time Méribel had taken on the finals, hosting the Downhill, Cross-Country and Cross-Country Eliminator events and the results were certainly promising:

- Best Downhill ahead of classic venues like Mont-Saint-Anne in Québec or Scotland’s Fort William.
- 2nd place in Cross-Country and Eliminator behind Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic.

Add this to previous accolades, such as the 2013 Trial event, voted ‘Best Organisation’ on the World Cup Trial circuit. Praise indeed!

Far from resting on its laurels, Méribel hopes to organise future World Cup Mountain Bike events, a fantastic program for the future of the resort.

28/08/2014 - Newsletter Focus XC Team for Annefleur .

" Dear Annefleur "Fleur",
thank you very much for your time spending with all of us. You´ve brought a lot of vitality and heart´s blood into our team and the cycling sport. With all your love of sport you´ll always remain in our hearts.
On the race day in Meribel you made the sun shine all day long, every flower by the wayside of the track flourished so that you could watch the race from every angle.
You, "Fleur", didn´t miss to be with every single participant that day: with "your flower" attached to every number you could experience everyone giving his/her best on that special day, precisely for you.
Every time we think of you, you give us hope and so much strength - thank you for that! You´ll always be with us, we know.
"It´s good for me"- one of your most replied answers to our questions. We do hope from the bottom of our hearts that it is like this, now.
Because of you, the entire cycling family moved closer together, merged and hold a moment of silence prior to each race. Many people, hardly knowing each other, put their arms around each other at the thought of you. What a wonderful experience for us, that day.
Your "beloved" Focus XC Team"

The whole Mountainbike Family was proud to stay on the start line for "Fleur". The organizer do the heartiest for each rider with
