I am looking for test riders to help with downhill tire development.

Qualification:
Who: teams only at this point (sorry, not individual riders at this time). A team constitutes at least three people.
Where: Must be a professional level racing program competing on either
a) the World Cup circuit and/or
b) the USA Pro Mountain Bike Gravity Tour
(looking for both dry and wet courses)
Experience: Must have over five years of downhill racing experience (and/or equivalent offroad motorcycle racing)
Additional: Must be able to feel differences in tread patterns on the trail and be able to articulate a quality review
Helpful: previous experience with tire testing

Are you the one? If so, send me some information that allows me to do some research on you before we talk further.

LETS BUILD SOME FAST TIRES TOGETHER!

Guys, thanks for the responses.

Looking for teams at the moment so we can work with a varied background for experience.

Individual testing may come in the near future.

Check out www.steamboatgravityteam.com it's mostly a JR development team but all our coaches have at least three years racing experience. I personally have done various types of product testing for bikes and it's a major interest for me. We mostly race the Mountain States Cup series and other major local events. Let me know.

Thanks,
Ned Kajko
