Flo Espiñeira: from the mountain range to the top of the EWS-E
Dreams do come true and, if not, tell Flo Espiñeira. From the hill of her native Chile to the Olympus of the EWS-E, Flo’s path has been long and not without a few bumps and obstacles. Their ultimate success of winning the EWS-E is the result of hard work, tenacity and unwavering belief in himself. Today, Flo Espiñeira climbs to the top of the podium and assesses the path they traveled to get here.
Opportunities must be found
An opportunity arrived from none other than the Pinkbike Academy after several years of competing. Flo Espiñeira won the 2021 edition, a victory that catapulted them to sign with the Orbea FOX Enduro Team and compete once again in the Enduro World Series.
Still don’t know her story?
A first season to remember
The Orbea FOX Enduro Team gave Flo the opportunity to return to the elite level of Enduro, and Flo did not miss the chance. Strength and reliability have been the hallmarks of Flo’s riding in their first year with the team. Thanks to a fourth-place win and four second places in a row, Flo climbed to the top of the EWS-E podium.
This final victory comes with double merit, as its their first season competing in the electric category. There are no secrets to achieving this feat, but a perfect union with their inseparable Wild FS was an explosive tool on their way to the top.
