Wyn Masters' Top Privateer Award is Back in 2021

Wyn Masters is a pretty awesome guy, that's no secret. And to continue that fine tradition of awesomeness, he's bringing back the World Cup and EWS Privateer Fund to help the racers who are out competing on their own dime in 2021. If you want to help out, you can make a donation at the GoFundMe page, and be in the running for a GT frame of your choice at the end of the season. If you don't want to donate but still want to be part of the movement, Wyn sells WynTV merch via his online store, a percentage of proceeds will go to the Privateer Fund as well. Get in!

From Wyn:

I didn’t run it in 2020 as the race season was so uncertain but got to get it back up and running this year.

I know from my own experiences how tough it can be to race as a privateer rider, and even more so in the midst of a global pandemic, so I'm trying get the fund rolling again to award the fastest privateers on the DH World cup and EWS circuit as I feel these are the guys and girls that need it most, the goal is to try top that of the prize money from the actual races themselves.

Some of the previous award winners have gone on to achieve a lot and to become professional riders now, living out their dreams - one is in fact wearing the rainbow jersey as your current DH World Champion.
