fi’zi:k is proud to announce its sponsorship of MTB legend Cedric Gracia, now riding fi’zi:k Monte – Made For Enduro.

“I am happy to say that my bottom has found a match with the Monte,” says the legendary French mountain bike rider who has signed with fi’zi:k to ride Monte saddles for the next three years.

Cedric Gracia’s career has graced most major disciplines of mountain bike competition. He’s best known for Downhill, 4X, and most recently Enduro, with his own team CG Racing Brigade – but he’s also succeeded in top-level Freeride and Slopestyle competitions. Gracia is applauded worldwide for his riding style, bravery,
sense of fun and his individual approach to bikes, riding and racing, and he’s a great addition to the fi’zi:k fraternity.

“A world-famous winner of the stature of Cedric is something we’re delighted to announce,” says fi’zi:k’s Marketing & Racing Manager Nicolò Ildos. “What he brings to the party is a massive amount of experience and knowledge, and an amazing character. We’re proud that Cedric Gracia has chosen fi’zi:k Monte saddles.”

Gracia has won and podium’d races and series around the world. He’s respected for his technical riding skill – learned from an early age in BMX, developed in Downhill and polished in Enduro racing, where he’s perfected his line choice and balance, along with the ability to move around and off the back of the saddle through technical terrain, carrying race-winning speed through the toughest courses.

Part of Gracia’s success is down to his bravery – fast runs, big jumps – and some big crashes (including a famous, and very frightening off on Reunion Island, where Cedric broke his pelvis and severed his right femoral artery, an injury from which he was fortunate to escape with his life). Cedric is an exhibitionist, with an unconventional style – which many fans have enjoyed at the races or in movies, including the infamous New World Disorder series.
