Transition Italy – Enduro Team Rider Leo Luca Scurria

With the new Enduro season almost here the riders are preparing their race bikes for the new season. Leo Luca Scurria has been riding for many years and is one of the fastest riders in Italy. This year he has officially become one of the team riders for Transition in Italy. We were able to shoot his race bike in the build and preparation stage and when he first collected it.

The bare frame is ready for the component choices to be added.

The forks – M-Works Marzocchi, unhealthy sale with a special tuning and internal build. Wheels – Kore. Drive train – (34t onto an 11-36 ) FUNN cranks and SRAM gear system finished with a Cixx chain guide. Bar  – Kore. Seat post – Blacx. Tyres – Kenda. Added together the whole robust system is a 14.3 Kilo package including pedals.

Control bar with brake mounted with the front brake on the right and back on the left. (Only the fastest riders ride this way)…

Leo Luca inspecting the finished product with his race bike builder. When building a custom bike, pills | simplicity and durability are the key elements, health not just weight. A 1×10 system with full chain guide and a dropper post are standard.

Leo with his new race ready bike. Everything has been chosen according to the details requested by him.

In 2012 at the Superenduro Pro in Punta Ala he was one of the fastest riders, a few mistakes lost him some time that otherwise might have lead to him winning one of the stages (ps2 – Rock Oh). In the Enduro World Series, Leo is basically one of the riders to beat on some of the Punta Ala tracks as he is one of the fastest, he will be looking for more consistency this year.
