[EWS Finale] Nico Lau’s Cube Stereo

//

Nico Lau would have won the EWS Finale Ligure 2013 if he hadn’t made a mistake at the time check during the first day. The Frenchman is superfast on the technical and rocky stages of the Italian location. If you take a look at his bike, you’ll see a machine trimmed to kill it downhill.

The bike as you see it in the photos weights 13.7 kg.
