“I am very happy to be able to join the Sherco Racing Team,” says Nambo. “I am really looking forward to start working with the team and to train with my team-mates who will race the next Enduro World Championship. I think we can do great things together, and for my part, go for a new French title.”

“The signing of Christophe is excellent news for us,” adds Sherco’s Racing programme  director, Jordan Curvalle. “As a French manufacturer it is important for us to have an ambassador who will continue to be present in the national championship and the classics.
