Throwing their weight behind some of the youngest racers on the mountain, RockShox and Trek are proud to announce the RockShox Trek Race Team, showcasing a roster of gravity-focused racers all under the age of 21.
"We're super excited to take the foundation of this team to the next level by adding new resources and increasing our commitment to winning.” — David Zimberoff, SRAM VP of Marketing.
The team includes two-time UCI Junior Downhill World Champion and World Cup Overall winner Vali Höll, up-and-coming Scottish shredder Jamie Edmondson, twice-crowned Canadian National Junior Downhill Champion Ethan Shandro, and the fastest kid in Whistler Mountain Bike Park, 15-year-old Tegan Cruz.
“Trek is thrilled to partner with RockShox and welcome Vali, Jamie, Tegan, and Ethan onto this exciting new team. These riders will be an important part of the Trek family as they help usher in the next generation of World Cup contenders. We can't wait to see what they do in the season to come. Bring on 2021!” — Tim Vanderjeugd, Trek Bicycle Director of Sports Marketing
Höll and Edmondson will focus on the UCI DH World Cup calendar this season. In addition, the team will fit in Crankworx events along with select Enduro World Series races.
