bigquotesI'm very excited for the next two seasons with Madison Saracen. I've had plenty of time to test the Myst and I'm getting on well with it. To be working with Will Longden (Team Manager) will be awesome too. He's got many years of experience behind him and I'm sure I will learn a lot from him. - Sam Dale

This is Sam’s first year riding on a full factory team, bringing with it a new level of support all the way from training through to race day. No doubt Sam’s talent will continue to evolve within this new and improved setup. Hopefully, we will see Sam pilot his Saracen Myst onto a World Cup podium in 2013!

bigquotesIt's fantastic to have Sam on the Madison Saracen team, he's done so well over the last few years with limited support and were looking forward to giving him full factory backing to help him achieve his ambitions. Sam is a great character and well respected UK rider to compliment the rest of the team. - Will Longden

 Seems like Madison-Saracen signed a real gem of a rider in Sam. Good luck in the upcoming season! The terrain in San Romolo looks amazing as well and reminds me a lot of SoCal trails.
