Congratulations to Alex Jumelin won the Fise Experience contest this weekend in Monteux, followed on the podium by Raphael Chiquet and Joris Bretagnolles. Fise Experience is the feeder event for the Fise World Series that runs in France throughout the year, and is gaining in popularity and so keep an eye on this contest series as it grows. It turned out to be a great weekend for the Jumelin family with Alex’s son Nathan winning the Amateur class at the Fise Experience, good job Nathan!
