The German brand BULLS is aiming to reorder the gravity sector and will attack global DH racing as well as free ride events by the establishment of Team BULLS, in partnership with the German magazine Mountainbikerider. We are really proud to confirm that we have created the first German UCI Trade-Team in the history of the DH Worldcup, which will travel to all WC Rounds and to Worlds in South Africa. The Slopestyle side of things also won´t be neglected...

BULLS is proud to announce the signing of New Zealand´s Wyn Masters. The Kiwi is world famous for his unique riding style and his riding skills on nearly any kind of bike - not to mention being the unofficial "people´s most favorite World Cup Rider“, largely due to his web series WynTv.

"So the new year has now begun and it brings a new beginning for me, I am stoked to say that in 2013 I am going to be riding the full World Cup Series for BULLS Bikes! After some bad luck with injuries last season I am pumped to get back on the circuit in 2013 and with the support that I have working with an awesome company like BULLS, I know I will have the tools needed in order for me to reach the goals I am aiming for. I have been putting in the hard work over the offseason to make sure 2013 is a great year!“ - Wyn Masters

Wyn will be joined by the two young German talents Christian Textor and Tommy Herrmann who played part in the Magazine´s own Team Program in 2012. With the support provided and having Wyn as a mentor they will become a regular appearance in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. But this UCI DH-Trade-team will also share a good amount of time on the road together with Sweden´s Slopestyle ace Teo Gustavson to attend the largest Freeride festivals on the globe, Crankworx, Out of Bounds Leogang, and especially Europe´s biggest freeride festival on home soil, the Dirtmasters Festival in Winterberg (May 17-21). It´s gonna get wild with Teo throwing down the tricks at the Red Bull Bergline and the other boys racing the tracks. Save the date people and come witness this special show!

"After struggling to find the support which I need in the past, I´m more than happy to finally have been backed up by such a great company and to be part of an awesome program like this. I seriously can´t wait til the season kicks off for me at White Style, Leogang!“ - Teo Gustavson

Teo will also travel to all gold-status events of the FMBA Worldtour including 26Trix, Fise, Bearclaw Invitational and of course the Red Bull Joyride in Whistler B.C.

The brand BULLS is owned by the German buying association the ZEG, which was founded in 1966. It supplies nearly 1000 bike-shops throughout Europe. By their position and passion towards cycling they decided to let their knowledge flow into the establishment of the brand BULLS, which is already celebrating success with their CC team for several years by now. Now it´s time to take on the gravity scene!

"With the establishment of this new team and the bikes we are working on for this project, we want to continue our engagement in the sport just like we do with our CC team. I´m really looking forward to the enhancement and the potential in the gravity-sector.“ - Georg Honkomp, CEO of ZEG

The idea of a collaboration between BULLS and Mountainbikerider mag wasn´t that far fetched when the company decided to develop a gravity bike range. The magazine celebrated its 15th anniversary last year and played a huge part in the development of independent race series and events in the German biking scene. With them as a partner, the team will be in good hands and can rely on an outstanding pool of relations and contacts.

"Mountainbikerider Magazine was into racing from day one on wards, most of its editors are an active part of the racing scene. I´m totally stoked about the chance to build up a World-Cup Racing Team with the help of BULLS. Moreover I´m very happy for the two young Germans  and the chance that we finally could see German athletes on the top ranks of World-Cup racing.“ - Frank "Lippe“ Weckert, founder and chief-editor of MRM
