Meet Lapierre Zipp Collective: riders Isabeau Courdurier, Adrien Dailly, and Lisandru Bertini. Plus former racer Chloé Gallean serving as Content Manager. Add to that the legendary Nico Vouilloz (Team Director) and Cedric "Pouky" Carrez as Manager, and you’ve got yourself a proper Dream Team.
The gang is backed by French bike frame brand Lapierre, alongside SRAM/Zipp, 100%, Hutchison, and several other sponsors. A tight-knit group with ambition in its DNA and shared values among its members, the Zipp Collective has proven to be stiff competition in the EWS scene and beyond.
After almost 20 years, Adrien Dailly makes riding tough runs look easy. Dailly won the 2020 Enduro World Series in Pietra Ligure, as well as in 2017 at EWS Tasmania (his first win in this series). The past season was tough for Dailly, who suffered a twice dislocated shoulder and a broken foot in one month. A setback for sure, but by no means an ending for the fierce Frenchman.
Isabeau Courdurier is a dominating force and a daredevil on the EWS circuit, having raced since its inception in 2013. In 2019 she won every round of the EWS, after scoring second at each event in 2018 and taking first overall in 2017. She’s also a certified MTB coach, a fan of 80’s metal, and has a master’s degree in Marketing. Not too shabby!
Rounding out the collective is Lisandru Bertini, from the island of Corsica. Still in the Under21 category, Bertini started enduro racing quite young, and got into cross-country (XC) at the age of 4. If you can believe it, this kid had an XC race career from age 7 to 16. Fans of Enduro may have seen him ripping through the Italian Dolomites during EWS 2021, where he finished 10th.
We love watching this crew thrive, including on social media. They’re all about fun in their 80’s inspired 2022 EWS season start video. And a more serious side emerges in Resilience, where team members get real about themes of loss, doubt, and determination.
