For 2020 The Commencal Riding Addition team gets a new Muc-Off co-title partner for 2020. The 2020 roster consists of Amaury Pierron, Myriam Nicole, Remi Thirion, Thibaut Daprela, Thibaut Ruffin, Gaetan Ruffin and Tristan Lemire.
The Ruffin Brothers’ Riding Addiction is delighted to welcome MUC-OFF alongside COMMENCAL as a co-title partner for the coming seasons.
Known for its obsession with making the most innovative care products, the UK brand now joins forces in the team’s obsession with chasing wins! Opening this new chapter as COMMENCAL/MUC-OFF by Riding Addiction is another step in the team history and a clean start for everyone.
As good news comes in threes, Riding Addiction as extended contracts with COMMENCAL for 3 more years as well as with team riders, 2019 World Champion Myriam Nicole and 2018 World Cup Winner and phenom Amaury Pierron!
The relationship with the Andorran brand never stops growing, they have come a long way over the past 10 years and more than ever we are both going in the same direction for the future.
Also, the team faces a new kind of challenge…15-year-old French Canadian Tristan Lemire joins COMMENCAL/MUC-OFF. His potential, his style, and his spontaneity convinced us, so he will make his World Cup debuts in 2021 with 2020 as a training year, where he will and has already started to, learn the magic from his teammates.
“Everyone in the team has already won a World Cup and I think I have a lot to learn from them, it’s an awesome opportunity for me! I have to wait another year before being with them at the World Cups, but I’ll race a few good races this year like Crankworx Whistler as well as selected North American and European races. I don’t have any pressure; I’ll go with the flow!” Tristan Lemire.

“This is some amazing news for the team, the past years have exceeded our expectations, and not just by a little! This team is more than a race team, it’s a bunch of amazing people who are having an amazing time racing bikes and do their best at it. We want to work with people who share our vision of racing, this is why there’s no question in working with COMMENCAL for so long. We already got to hang with the MUC-OFF crew, and those guys are just the same as us and we are stoked to have them on board. To finish, having Myriam, Amaury, Rémi, Thibaut, Gaët and now, Tristan, along with our amazing staff is key to having that atmosphere on and off the bike. It’s just like grandma’s recipe of the best chocolate mousse in the world, you know…” Thibaut Ruffin, Team Owner.
