This film, ‘Resilience’, is a promotional video from the Lapierre Zipp Collective team, but it’s worth a watch as a documentary of being on the race circuit.
The film looks at the EWS season for Isabeau Courdurier and Adrien Dailly, and how their lives away from the race tape and performances inside it intertwine to create challenge, motivation, confidence and uncertainty. It’s a head game as well as a physical one. It doesn’t all make for easy viewing, and it shows the pressure riders are under during the long EWS season.
A tight-knit collective, with a will to fight and to live for the bike and for its members… This film, shot in immersion with the Lapierre Zipp Collective team, traces the 2021 Enduro World Series season. A difficult year for Isabeau who lost her father just before the start of the season but also for Adrien who had a period of doubt after a complicated start to the season. “Resilience” shows the importance of the collective in these difficult moments and reveals the will to fight by the two outstanding riders that are Isabeau Courdurier and Adrien Dailly. A film full of emotions that gives a real lesson in life.
In tribute to Jean-Luc Courdurier.
It’s a far cry from some of the ‘everything is great and rad all the time’ promo we might have come to expect. If you enjoyed this, you might also enjoy this interview with Tahnee Seagrave.
