Even before the last stage of the championship, Bastien Hyete has been crowned French trial champion in the Senior 2 Class. “During the different stages of the championship, we have demonstrated the superiority of our electric bike on all kinds of tracks and conditions”, declared Bastien. Its gas-powered competition included bikes from Gas Gas, Beta, Sherco, Montesa, Orca and Jotagas.
