Frenchman Damien Oton is one of the most important Enduro riders on the international scene and his track record is full of podiums in the EWS and victories in the Megavalanche, among others. But the current leader of the Orbea FOX Enduro Team didn't even think of becoming a professional when he was a plumber at the age of 21. 

Damien Oton takes us on a lap through his life

The "Take a Lap" team travelled to Ille Sur Têt, Damien's birthplace and place of residence, where his Orbea Rallon knows each and every one of its rocky trails. A very special place close to the Pyrenees and the sea.

Sometimes the quality of an athlete automatically increases when we know his origins. Damien Oton's was already very high, but you might think it's even better after watching the video.
