Fox announces the 2010 MTB Team
FOX Racing kicks off the 2010 season with an impressive line-up of MTB team athletes.
FOX Racing is excited to announce it’s partnering with GT Bicycles MTB team. GT’s long and successful history makes for a perfect pairing with Fox as both companies have paved the way since 1974.
The FOX supported riders:
• Mick Hannah- The DH phenom who stepped on the podium in the first four World Cups in '09 after having a year off.
• Eric Carter- The one and only and a true ambassador of the sport.
• Kevin Aiello- The young SoCal ripper that has earned his “Special K” nick-name.
• Andrew Cho- The bike slayer straight from White Rock BC.
• Marc Beaumont- Slugger continues on with FOX for more fun in 2010.
Said Hannah “I'm really excited to be working with FOX. GT and FOX were at the top when I started racing 20 years ago and they're still at the top today. I dreamt of riding for both companies back then and now that's come true. This racing season is shaping up very well.”
For 2010 we are stepping up our support of the GIANT MTB team. We are hitting the gates running with full head to toe support of their DH team consisting of the tried and true Jared Rando, new addition two-time national DH Champ Duncan Riffle, and Danny Hart - junior in 09 achieved 3rd place at the World Champs and was the over all winner at the World Cup. Also proudly supported by FOX are the pedal-pushing XC heavyweights: Adam Craig, Carl Decker, Oli Beckingsale, and Kelli Emmet.
Back for more:
Continuing the legacies that they have laid out, Cam McCaul, Kirt Voreis, Aaron Chase and Jeff Lenosky are all back on board with FOX. We’re proud to have these 4 legends of the sport flying the Fox colors. All 4 have been longtime Fox athletes and have helped shape where we are today. Also staying with FOX is ‘The Croatian Sensation’ Mislav Mironovic, he returns with even more enthusiasm this year than ever before. Back and ripping it up – 951 legend Rich Houseman, Boom Boom himself Scott Beaumont, and Mike Steidley.
New individual athletes for 2010:
FOX is proud to announce the support of Mitch Ropelato. Only seventeen years old, Mitch achieved the seemingly impossible in 09 - he became the youngest Mountaincross National Champion in U.S. history, and his second time ever to a World Cup event he stood on the podium with a second place medal. Mitch represents the future of gravity MTB racing and Fox is excited to be a part of his journey.
The word has been getting around and it’s true, Leigh Donovan is back to race the World Cups again! Even more exciting for us is that she will be representing FOX. One of the fastest women to ever grace a gravity bike, Leigh has some impressive results on her resume: 1995 World Champion, 2001 World Cup Champion and 9 times U.S. National Champion. We look forward to providing her support on her return to the WC’s.
We are also excited to have opened our doors to the following talented rippers – Ryan Condrashoff, John Hauer, Evan Turpen, Christian Wright, Jordan Lopez, Jon Wilson, and Tammy Donahugh.
FOX Europe welcomes two young guns Sam Reynolds and Harry Heath to the family. Sam will bring his enviable style to the Dirt Jump and Slope style scene, and Harry will be getting loose on the World Cup DH circuit.
We look forward to supporting such an incredible team for the 2010 season and anticipate great things to come.
