Takeoff — 2014 King of the Mountains
It is only a matter of time before we see Sylvain Bessiere on the podium. He has, in his possession, a wonderfully crafted Spider 9 powered TC style buggy that just cries to go fast. When he’s on course running, he’s running fast, and making easy work of climbs and descents that follow his path. Unfortunately, as bad luck can play out on any Ultra4 team, he lost his motor shortly after the prologue. It wasn’t one of those “let’s fix it overnight” repairs. No, this motor decided it was done for the weekend. We do hope to see Sylvain back at it, no doubt with a happier motor next time.
