Remy Absalon has earlier raced with Commencal, and he has now signed a the three-year deal.

"After nine years with Commencal, I needed a new challenge and a new experience," said Absalon. "I wanted to build another project with a cool brand with a good spirit."

Absalon finished fourth in the 2013 Enduro World Series (EWS), and he has previously won races like Crankworx, the Superenduro and the Enduro des Nations.

Scott has been involved in the enduro scene for several years.

"Enduro has progressed immensely through the years and now even belongs to the established UCI racing disciplines. Having been in the enduro discipline from the early days with the release of the original Scott Ransom, sponsoring a top international like Remy strengthens our brand presence in this segment," said Lionel Girardin, Senior Marketing Manager of Scott.
