X4.00ø – THE.ÆIGHT.RACING.BLØG
A decade on from my first race I shall, in 2014, be racing for an all new team. It’ll be my first season in the “Master” category and I’ll be riding for KTM MTB Racing. Full factory support is something special – I’ve been lucky enough to race for various sponsors over the years, but there’s something about KTM that is a little unique.
KTM MTB Racing is new mountain bike racing team for 2014, supported by Fli Distribution and KTM Bike Industries. We have confirmed sponsorship from Continental Tyres, Torq Fitness and Four4th Lights. The team has been set up by Garry Hurst and Alex Tompsett, both of whom were riding in the “Sport” category for KTM Bike Industries in 2013. With the brand stepping up both their road and mountain bike teams the pair were asked to oversee the mountain bike side of things.
I’ll be racing (amongst other races) in the Masters National Points Series, the Masters Southern XC Series, the Enduro National Champs and a host of six, twelve and twenty-four hour races. I’ll provide my own race prep and training programs via THE.ÆIGHT.BICYCLE.CØMPANY, and work closely with the team developing the bikes and the team itself. We’ll also be racing a few of the Summer Endurance races as a team.
