THE SUSPENSE IS OVER! I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU! After Episode 1 revealed some of the struggles I've faced securing a contract for 2021, in Episode two I fill in the gaps between January until now...From gaining support from an unexpected sponsor to making tough decisions and everything in between. Most importantly though I reveal the much anticipated news of my new set up! Rest assured there was no compromise on quality equipment, bring on the races! Thank you to all the brands on board for 2021, I have more to announce very soon, check out @misswinton on instagram for the latest.

Words from Nukeproof and Katy:
After setting the Team rumour mill alight over the past few months and toying with the question “what’s Katy doing?” It’s time to break cover. She lit the internet up with her latest edit on her YouTube Channel with a refreshingly honest talk on the search for the perfect ride.
Katy has now set up her new team; Moxie XI and Nukeproof are super proud to be part of her new adventure. She will be racing her new Nukeproof Giga 297 (Size Small) at all the Enduro World Series rounds as well as some select other races. Her Giga is going to be one of the trickest out there with fellow sponsors; SRAM, Rockshox, ZIPP & Crankbrothers with Troy Lee Designs supplying protection and apparel. Huge thanks to her family too.
Full bike checks, ride edits and more news to drop soon.
"Words cannot describe how absolutely delighted I am to join Nukeproof!! They've gone above and beyond to make this happen for me and to make me feel welcome, supported and part of the brand. After all the struggles, I've found exactly what I was looking for. It was a priority of mine to make sure I had the best fitting bike for me and I have spent a lot of time studying geometry charts. The Giga stood out as a great fit for a small person as well as the geo being progressive with the times... it's also an absolute feast for the eyes! After my first ride I can already confirm they have absolutely nailed it! I am so buzzing because it can only get better from here!! I can't wait to get between the tape and see what we can achieve together this year. Thanks team!!" - Katy Winton- Team Moxie XI
“We’re stoked for Nukeproof to be part of Katy’s new team. She’s an incredible athlete and a brilliant ambassador for our sport, her attitude is a perfect fit for Nukeproof. We’re looking seeing her and her Giga charging at the of the Enduro World Series. It’s been awesome to read/ watch the reaction to Katy’s refreshing honesty in her recent video series and look forward to watching her give a real insight for all of us into the mental and physical determination needed to make it at the highest level in future videos (plus all the good times, champagne and gelatos too).” - Rob Sherratt, Nukeproof Marketing Manager
