Sunday the 16th of March saw the official 2014 launch of the Twelve50 Bikes Race Team at Foel Gasnach, North Wales. Excited? You should be. The roster this year looks something like this;
Alex Stock (Elite) David Read (Masters) Rick Minshull (Masters) Matt Steadmen (Masters) Cheri Mills (Elite) Nicole Mallet (Women) Russell Cosh (Veteran) Josh Dodd (Senior) Ross Adams (Veteran) Des Ryan (Head Chef)
There’s more racing pedigree in that line up than a copy of the Racing Post on Grand National weekend.
With glorious sunshine threatening dust in mid March (!), we’d not had riding this good for months. Kitted out with fresh gear from Renthal, Osprey, Mavic, Power Bar, Fox Head, Maxxis and Weber Barbecues we've not had support this good for years! New bikes have been built, tuned and tested. Existing bikes have been stripped, serviced and updated with shinier, lighter and all-round faster parts.
This year we’re going to rip. Come and say hello if you’re at any of the UK Gravity Enduros or numerous other races we've entered across the country. Just steer clear of Dave if he’s had a couple of Power Bar Power Shots. They've got a bit of a kick and he gets a bit excited.
Keep your eyes on the prize. I've got a feeling you’re going to be seeing team Twelve50 moving pretty quickly, on the trails and up the results sheets.
The first big race is upon us, and we will have a full report after round 1 of the UK Gravity Enduro race series at Ae Forest.....
