We are excited to announce the Gravity team for 2013:
- James Scott (Captain)
- Jason Pinkney
- Mike Brazier
- Dion Thomas
- Pete Gowland
- Antonio Fiore.
James, Jason, Mike, Dion and Pete will be racing mainly in gravity enduro events this year with a focus on the Enduro1 series. They’ll also be racing in more of the Mini Enduro races and the major UK Gravity Enduro Series. The Mondraker Gravity Rally in June is shaping up to be another great social event where we’re hoping for a big MB Swindon contingent.
Antonio will be the main DH rider for the team racing at loads of the regional events including Forest of Dean, UK Bike Park, Aston Hill and the Pearce Cycles races. See our gravity events list.
With most of the races being local (Quantocks, Forest of Dean, Swinley Forest) it will be great to see your support and please have a go yourself – you are welcome to enter as “MB Swindon” still! And if you show you’re good enough, you could make the team next year. There’ll be several friendly faces at almost any given event to give tips and moral support – the more times we see “MB Swindon” on the entry list the better! Races are often just as much about the social as the race itself.
Finally all the team riders have already been enthusiastic and vocal about getting more gravity based rides and events going on so if you want to suggest something or join on a trip just let us know, we’re expecting several uplift days and trips to some more technically challenging ride locations. First one being the Mid-week Uplift at our sponsor – Muc-Off UK Bike Park, there’s discounted rates for MBSwindon members and there’s been loads of places taken already.
