Jérôme Clementz – The Precepts of Enduro

Jérôme has been riding bikes for as long as one can remember. Racing both XC and DH when younger, he soon got bored with riding the same loop all afternoon or queuing for gondolas and decided to ride his own way, up and down the Vosges mountains range where he lives, before Enduro was called Enduro. Since then he’s won all the major Enduro events out there, including two wins at the Megavalanche in Alpe d’Huez.

Besides teaching a number of principles for living, Enduro also provides standards for putting these principles into practice. These standards are called precepts, or rules of discipline. So that these standards would not lapse into rigid ritualism, consideration was given to the times, the society, the culture and customs of the region in which Enduro was being practiced. This concept that speaks of Enduro’s natural flexibility in adapting to the land and culture to which it spreads eventually became known as the Clementz precepts of the Enduro Order.
