Knolly Bikes is excited to announce the launch of their 2014 grassroots racing program, an effort aimed at supporting selected athletes in both DH and Enduro racing formats for 2014. We’re looking to build a solid foundation for a competitive racing program for years to come throughout the inaugural year, starting at the grassroots level but with high hopes of expanding to elite support on bigger stages. Everyone at Knolly is a fan of racing and we hope to contribute to the sport and help to develop a few upcoming shredders. We'll be recruiting racers for the 2014 season, and we expect those selected to have a handful of solid results, represent the brand to a high level of professionalism, and act as true ambassadors in their local scenes in order to graduate through the program to our Elite or Team sponsorship levels.
|Everyone at Knolly is very excited about the grassroots racing program on many different levels. Clearly, the opportunity to have more athletes competing on our product is a key focus for the effort, but to also have a group of ambassadors acting as Race Managers is a great asset to our business. I look forward to seeing the program grow as we enter our inaugural year. - Noel Buckley, President & CEO of Knolly Bikes|Knolly Elite Rider Spencer Graf riding in his home town of Kelowna, B.C.
The Chilcotin is well equipped to handle any type of racing format you want to throw it at. Burly enough for DH tracks yet nimble enough for Enduro, this frame offers the complete versatility.
|As we all know, racing is what drives the leading edge of almost all technology in the sport of mountain biking, and we are proud to be a part of this. Racers of all disciplines can reap the rewards of Knolly's high-tech 4xFOUR suspension design, and we want to make our technology available to more riders than ever before through this new grassroots program. - Kevin Waterbury, Global Sales Manager|
The Podium - appropriately named if you want to give yourself an advantage against your competition.
Regional Race Managers will be responsible for recruitment, interviews and selection, and criteria for recruitment will be focussed on racers that are planning to compete in a specific or number of race series in his or her local scenes around the globe.
