We have just finished our annual team camp down here in Queenstown, New Zealand. The team house, now complete with its own pump track, was the perfect base to get things going for 2016. This year we have four WC downhill riders – We have retained stalwarts and pinners Mick and Tracey Hannah, Needles enters his second year with us ready to fire on all cylinders and this years rookie is Alexandre Fayolle, getting his first pro deal. Fabien Cousiné will keep riding major Enduro events along with some adventure trips and special video projects.
Of course, we can’t forget our superstar Sam Reynolds – who will be busting out tricks at all main slopestyle and freeride events.
The team is again backed up by a great team of 8 passionate staff.
We welcome on board some great new sponsors as well – ilabb clothing , High 5 sport nutrition , KS seat-post and Yakima racks
We are also pleased to continue our partnership with long term sponsors Polygon and the following brands, who we can’t thank enough; Kenda Tires, E*Thirteen, BOS suspension, VP components, Camelbak, Alpinestars, KMC, Spank, IXS, Box Components-Promax , Zéfal, ODI, Jet Black, Reverse Components, 100%, Unior tools, Skyline, 5.10 and Clear Protect.
So with that said, lets get the 2016 party started at Crankworx!
