Mondraker annuncia l’MS Mondraker DH Team

Mondraker annuncia il suo nuovo team dh per la stagione 2012, l’MS Mondraker. Che il nuovo partner di MS fosse Mondraker si sapeva già dalla pubblicazione degli élite team UCI 2012 di qualche tempo fa. L’MS Mondraker, visto anche il ritiro di Fabien Barel annunciato lo scorso anno a La Bresse, prenderà il posto del Mondraker Factory Team. Confermati in MS Brook MacDonald e Markus Pekoll. New entry invece Damien Spagnolo, medaglia d’argento ai mondiali 2011 di Champéry, e Emmeline Ragot, campionessa del mondo in carica.

La struttura organizzativa del team MS Mondraker comprenderà anche fotografo e videomaker, quindi aspettiamoci una bella serie video del team per il prossimo anno. Markus Stöckl, propietario di Ms Racing, ha dichiarato: “Siamo molto orgogliosi di rappresentare il nuovo Factory Team Mondraker, già alla mia prima visita presso la sede Mondraker ho trovato un’ottima base per il nostro programma. Siamo dispiaciuti di aver dovuto lasciare andare alcuni dei nostri piloti, ma allo stesso tempo felici di avere a bordo Damien e Emmeline ed aver confermato Brook e Markus. Per noi è un periodo davvero pieno di lavoro e a causa del cambiamento del nostro partner principale ci saranno tante novità. Siamo entusiasti circa le nuove opportunità che si preannunciano all’orizzonte“.

MS MONDRAKER TEAM is the name of Mondraker’s new ¨UCI Elite Mountain Bike Team¨.
This new structure is the result of an agreement between Mondraker and the Austrian Race Team MS Racing owned by RedBull athlete Markus Stöckl and will mean a new stage and step ahead for Mondraker in DH racing after the Mondraker Factory Team and Fabien Barel announced their retirement.
The team will be composed by the following top riders:
  • Brook MacDonald – 3 podium positions at World Cup UCI in 2011  
  • Damien Spagnolo – Silver Medal World Championship 2011 Champery/SUI  
  • Emmeline Ragot – World Champion 2011 Champery/SUI  
  • Markus Pekoll – European Champion IXS Cup 2011  
The goal of the team is to be one of the top DH teams of 2012 and to continue the great job of the Mondraker Factory Team from previous seasons.
All riders of the MS MONDRAKER TEAM will be riding the Summum Pro team which has proven to be a very promising and medal winning bike ever since its launch in 2009, with various victories from Fabien Barel in the last few years and Damien Spagnolo’s great performance in Champery September 011.
The MS MONDRAKER TEAM will have an impressive infrastructure and a very professional support team available for the riders, as well a professional photographer and movie maker who will be following the team during all the important races starting from the first World Cup race in Pietermartizburg between the 17th and 18th of March.
MS-Racing Owner Markus Stöckl says: “We are very proud to represent the new Mondraker Factory Team, already at my first visit at the Mondraker office we found a good base for our program. The Team is very sad that we had to let some of our riders go but also happy about the new riders Damien and Emmeline and about Brook and Markus to still be with us, each of them is a great Rider and has a cool personality, so we are looking forward to some successful and fun race weekends. It is quite a busy time for us because of the change of our main partner there will be some more changes down the road, but we are stoked about the new opportunities which are coming.”
