Raidlight have steadily climbed the AR World Rankings over the last two years with strong international results including a 4th place in the Swiss Qualifier and 4th at the AR World Championship in France in 2012, 3rd in Expedition Africa in 2013, and 9th at Untamed NE in 2014. The teams best result to date, and first time on top of the podium at an AR World Series Qualifier, was their 1st place at the Raid in France this year. Raidlight is competing at the AR World Championship 2014 in Ecuador and will be a team to watch.
Nico Seguin said “Team Raidlight tries to visit one or two international Qualifier races each year. This year we have been to New England (USA) and will be at the final in Ecuador. Next year…. AUSTRALIA!
Team members will include Nicolas Seguin (Captain), Audrey Ehanno, Thomas Gaudion and Nicolas Moreau. This team roster will be extremely tough to beat. Audrey and Thomas will bring important podium experience to the team for their journey to Australia – Audrey being part of the winning team in Spain in 2013 and France in 2014 and Thomas part of the winning team in France in 2010 and 2014.
Nico also said “We are proud to race so far from France. Your country seams beautiful, marvellous barrier reef and so much to discover. Queensland looks awesome to ride and to race!”
