Aaron Gwin Announces Renewed Contract with Intense

Nov 9, 2021
by Alicia Leggett  

Aaron Gwin shared on social media that he will continue to ride for Intense in the upcoming years, posting a photo of himself at Intense with founder Jeff Steber.

bigquotesStoked for the next few years with this dude! We’ve got some unfinished business to handle. Thanks @intensecycles and crew for the continued support. This has been a great off-season for us already. Really happy with where we’re at and the progress we’re making. Excited for the future!Aaron Gwin

Intense Factory Racing shared an Instagram story of the same photo with the caption "2022 and beyond," so it seems that Gwin has committed to the team, which he owns, through at least 2023.

A little sebatical from podium duties for Aaron Gwin and he s back to work. Can he climb further up the ranks on track 2

Gwin's ride with Intense has had some ups and downs, with a handful of top-10s in 2019 and 2020 but some disappointing results, too, and a back injury that kept him sidelined for the end of the 2021 season. Perhaps the continuation of Intense Factory Racing will give him what it takes to get back to where he wants to be.

 The amount of hate towards Gwin is hilarious. Dude made the sport what it is today. He brought moto/SC focus and training to DH…well I guess in some ways we can complain about the days lost.

He can do whatever he wants at this point, and if being a part owner of intense and messing around w development and business is what he wants to do, let him lol.

 Athletes have been training and focusing for long before he arrived. He's a great rider but, wouldn't say he pioneered it

 Is he part owner of intense or just the intense factory racing?

 No question he influenced the sport and when he was at his prime he was one of the best to do it. However, I think it is unfair to say he "made the sport what it is today." We can't look into a crystal ball and see what it would have been without Gwin. But yeah- I think it is undeniable that his impact has been huge. I also don't get the hate towards him. He was hired to ride his bike fast and he always did his best to do that. Sad to talk about those times as past-tense and I hope that isn't the case. I would love to see him crush it again and feel that same energy you used to feel when he was in the start gate. For a season or two there it was undeniable you were watching something special whenever he got on a bike. People may dislike his personality, his personal choices around religion or vaccines... but all that is unfair IMO. He was hired to race and he did that and more. Respect where respect is due- the man can ride a bike, rose the level of competition at the time, and has had a huge impact on the sport.

 Just listened to his podcast on Gypsy Tales. The dude is so genuine. I'm hoping he's able to get back to winning WCs soon.

 @Beyond-The-Tape:

Don't worry BT, just because we love Gwin doesn't mean we love Hill any less.

Gwin helped bring a less common approach of intense (ha) and methodical focus and training to the sport which has since been adopted by pretty much everyone who's a real threat. He helped changed the game. Not singlehandedly but he was absolutely one of the pioneers of the shift.
  • 28 29
 @Beyond-The-Tape: exactly! He has talent, he has no loyalty to brands who helped get him to where he is...

@nvranka saying he made the sport what it is today, really discredits all the greats - mainly the real GOAT Minnaar, as well as Peaty, Hill, a ton more - all of these riders had success well before Gwin's first race...

So, no hate towards Gwin, but to me, his results over the past 3 years do not warrant a statement of he's made the sport what it is today...

 @dan23dan23: umm, vouilloz? If anyone was a pioneer in terms of professionalism and just raw skill on a bike it would be him, together with hill. Both took the sport to another level.

 Noo Athertons and other teams and racers were training hard before gwin. He didn't invent or do anything new.

How did he do at moto again?
I guess some people remember history with rose colored glasses.
He won some races sure. He had a dominant streak here and there.

 Met Gwin at Snow Summit and found him to be a very low key, polite, and nice person. I wonder how many people conflate being focused and intent with aloof?

 @Beyond-The-Tape: he definitely brought it to a new level. Today the top DH guys are on training programs based on those in motocross. Gwin for sure is a part of that shift

 @dark-o: People can hate anyone nowadays, too much pointless anger. Maybe I’m biased though because I own 2 intense bikes , but I didn’t hate Gwin when he was riding for specialized even if it’s probably my least favorite brand.
  • 11 1
 Maybe I should have said he helped shape the sport into what it is today.

It wasn’t meant as a pejorative towards the other influential people throughout the years. I just remember seeing a real shift in the way everyone trained/raced since the days Gwin was putting 5+ Seconds into them all.

 @chrisclifford: I mean that's a fair point but, I would say that others have been doing the same thing for a long time. Look at Gee for example, those guys have been training methodically for decades.

I would say Gwinn has done more for DH on the marketing and business side of the sport than anyone else. Seems like his negotiation style is much better than most.

 @lauwe-pokoe: 100% this.
The French in general have always had a more serious and professional approach to the sport.
Gwin stepped up the game when he arrived on the scene but he's not the first to train hard and take a professional approach.
Right now, I would say Bruni and his mechanic have stepped the game up just as much with their approach to bike setup.
  • 8 10
 Gwin did what virtually no one can do in the DH MTB world, make a living off it and a good one at that. Nothing but props for the guy, those that think he won't make it to the top step again... Keep watching.

Retire from racing and work in elite bicycle R&D for the foreseeable future.

 I think there are only three people without any one of whom DH racing would be different today: Vouilloz, Palmer, Hill. The rest mentioned above were very good, but they didn't 'change' the sport.

Agree 100%

 Has peaty Minaar and nico brought professionalism, and it was 100% Palmer who brought our sport Moto flavour. Gwin rode fast, and actually got paid to do so, but aside from that, I don’t think he changed much (most folks still aren’t getting paid like Gwin, so I don’t think his pay day really changed anything).

 no dude, you believe that he made the sport what is today bcause ur a fanboy.
He was one of the greatest for sure, but is influence is far from being the most important to get where we are.
Instead i believe, and i m not alone, (also his result speech about this) that he was so dominant with the "old " style of geometry and bike handling.
He definitely didn't bring the sport anywhere else than his victories, and he cannot adjust and adapt to the changes in the sport ( that u claim he would have produced himself), so as far as influence on the sport is not even a shoe lace of people like GOAT or Sam hill.
The thing about moto focus is really hilariuos .

Gwin took that on and ramped it up and with his raw speed he started winning world cups, obviously then everyone started to do it. But I think his team mates and the environment they had already cultivated when he turned up had something to do with it too.

 How is this sustainable from a practical standpoint? He owns his own team, but nobody on his team wins, nor does their title sponsor sell that many bikes. You have to win for companies to pay you in sponsor money. Intense isn’t making wc winning bikes anymore so none of this makes any sense

 @SterlingArcher:

It’d be nice to be privy to sales numbers. I have no idea how Intense is doing. I see them on occasion on the trails. But they are behind the competition for sure. Outdated and with ugly color schemes. But I’d consider an Intense “Hightower” if there were one and if it wasn’t ugly and if priced inline with other d2c brands.

Tell me how you think the goat shaped the sport more than AG? Not disagreeing, but the shift I saw across the board during the Gwin years was pretty significant imo. Greg is a great dude and an enigma in the way he has remained at the top/focused etc, but was he too responsible for pushing the entire field to a new level? I don’t know, got into the sport in like ‘09 and didn’t always pay close attention. I didn’t see that, but maybe it was before or I’m blind.

 @carym: - Agreed. Gwin is very low key and a really nice guy. I have met him on our local trails multiple times and he is just another guy out there.

He is definitely different than most of the other riders. He doesn't party, smoke bowls and screw around like most of the guys. He figured out quickly that this is a business and he has maximized his value over his career. He knows that this is a young mans game and that careers are short lived. Much like a running back in Football. Try to make as much as you can because your career at the top will be short lived. He did that and in his case he was smart. He signed high dollar 2-3 year contracts and leveraged his success into his next high dollar contract, and if that meant switching team then so be it. The second part of his "This is a business mentality" was to to create and get paid on signature items with the parts companies. He has mastered this like no other racer around.
People like this get hated on because they are different than the norm. He has 100% revolutionized the way riders get paid, maybe not the sport , but the way they leverage success to getting paid.
He is no in the point of his career that he can still be a top 10 racer if he stays healthy but he is also looking to the future where he can stay involved in the industry and continued to get paid.
Best of luck to him as he really is a good guy.

 Gwin doesn't own Intense Factory Racing Team from what I've been told. He has an ownership stake I believe (but don't quote me).

Does not have any ownership interest in Intense Bicycle Company.

With ownership of the team, it's just like Star Racing/Yamaha. They can push and develop products, sponsors (Intense, Kenda, TRP, E13) pay and provide product across the entire team. The team ownership can seek out paid sponsors and receive a percentage cut for securing the deals and ownerships motivation is to grow the Factory Team's presence, demand larger income & in return a larger cut of the sponsor dollars, especially if they can land corporate backing from outside vendors.

That last sentence is the key. Can the ownership land sponsors from outside the MTB industry? If they can, then the team will succeed. If it's solely industry sponsors, the team will fold because it's not sustainable and essentially double dipping into the industry's budget. Intel, Lenovo, Alcoa, Novant Health, GMC...they can make the team a business.

 @Beyond-The-Tape: No he definitely did. The level of training and professionalism before him was an absolute joke. As evidenced by the fact that he was winning multiple races by many seconds in 2011-2013. In 2012 the difference between him and second place was the same difference as between second place and 20th place. 20th place is basically a non-professional rider (someone who's not making a serious salary from racing). And second place was the GOAT....

I don't know how you can claim that they were doing a similar level of training and focus if they were losing races by 8 seconds?
  • 3 2
 @lauwe-pokoe: Ya...Vouilloz was over rated. Shaun Palmer picked up a mountain bike and less than a year later lost world champs to Vouilloz by less than 0.25 seconds. I mean...come on. No matter how naturally talented you may think Shaun Palmer is, that shouldn't happen is Vouilloz was anywhere near the level of professionalism that we think of today. It's not like Shaun Palmer was some amazing Moto rider at the time and he was leveraging so world class level of Moto skill to make that happen.

 @BenPea: Haha. Ya my bad. No one smokes Dope in the MTN World.

 @smgishot13: Everything you said is 100% wrong.

Nico "The Alien" Vouilloz could do things on a DH bike no one else could. I was there for several races. His ability, skill and bike handling were on another level compared to the rest of the field. His consistent run was equal to everyone else's absolutely panicked "pulled a rabbit out my ass" run and managed to finish fast. I watched Nico barely get nipped by Brian Lopes (fastest bike handler & sprinter of all time) at Deer Valley Dual Slalom with Nico on his DH bike in the the round of 8. He stomped a mud hole in hard tail pro BMX'ers on a 40lb big rig & Lopes barely got him at the line twice.

I was there to watch Palmer (on track in Semi-Pro during the same practices as Pro). His skillset was completely different to Nico and his abilities were not the same. But his fitness coming into DH was ELITE!!! The only thing he lacked was the sprint & cardiovascular endurance some of the insanely pedally courses in Europe had at the time.

Go back and watch Palmer in X Games BoarderCross or any old grainy DH race videos. His gift that could not be matched by any other rider was momentum. When he came by on a rocky, gnarly section...he was silent and flowed like liquid mercury over rough shit. He is unbelievable to watch in person because what slows down 99% of racers on a track down...he gained time on. His flow would blow minds in person.

Tomac was a former Tour de France level fit rider & still lost to Nico by 6 seconds in his prime on a SIX MINUTE DH track with boatloads of sprinting. They didn't call him The Alien b/c he didn't have a visor.

And yeah...Palmer was a World Class moto racer. To prove it, he went out and qualified for outdoor Nationals & 125 Supercross Finals. There are about 80 guys in a season who can say that. He did it. You didn't.

Athletes back then were stupid fit and they partied their butts off with several racing multiple disciplines in a weekend like Dual or Slalom or 4X...which is utterly exhausting to practice and race. Then they showed out on Sunday in DH too, got hammered that night and did it all over again the next week.

Just because there is more information on nutrition and recovery now than then doesn't disqualify them from being the elite of the elite in athletics.

 Agreed. Met Gwin trackside during qualifying at Snowshoe, he was very happy to say hi to fans while asking questions of other racing staff about what lines folks had been taking in a tricky spot, etc. To me he seemed like he was focused on the race like everyone else, but very humble and willing to hi-five kids, take photos, etc., really just all you could hope for from a racer.

Parents went in to stock up on bulk stuff a biggish family needs and I came out with a new bike. If you want to sell stuff, you gotta go to where the people are.

I ride a Devinci. Not easily found anywhere in a store. I can tell you I have been asked what kind of bike it is and what it is like to ride. No one has ever asked where I bought it. I have never been asked, across any of my bikes owned, where I bought something.

 @jmhills: It’s just the weird people on pink bike who think that if you buy stuff from anywhere but a local bike shop that that thing you bought is bad. But that is stupid because a Costco bike still needs to get tuned up at A SHOP.

 Why Europe? Pre-Season training in the American South East can be just as cold, wet and muddy. NEVERMIND the fact that many world cup racers have already figured this out. There are a good number of UCI riders that turn up in Tennessee and North Carolina in Jan and Feb over the last couple of years.

Hell, even Chatanooga has miles and miles XC trails that can be rocky, rooty, and muddy and demand a lot of fitness and skill. Make a great place just to train in terms of fitness. Two hours down to ATL and your back on a plane in no time back to wherever you came from.

As for why more Americans aren't up there? Great question. But my guess as to why the French kick so much taili is that it's more to do with culture than anything else. More support from the general public AND the biking community. Huge amounts of support actually.

Here, most people just don't care and would rather watch grown men in tight pants chase balls, spit, and slap each other on the a55. Then most of the bike shops i've been too treat DH (WITCH CAPITAL LETTERS B1TCH35!) as just something idiots do.XC and Road peeps can be really pretentious. And most people don't even know what a bike park is, but when you say it, they prolly envision someplace in a city or suburb where small kids with training wheels can go.

 @BDKR: I was adding in Windrock in reference to your comment about there being a number of aggressive places to train.
But we still don't know why Americans aren't competitive on the WC DH scene... Perhaps our attention IS spread too thin between other sports? Maybe it's similar to football (soccer) and Formula 1? Those are getting more popular here, but around the world they are MASSIVE. Maybe we're just not DH here? Wink

 @mybaben: You know, it has occurred too me that this is a pretty deep question and I've answered simplistically. Yeah, media and culture are one thing, but what about riding style and equipment right?

Example: In the late 80's and into the 00's 500cc road racing was dominated by American and Aussies. And the Americans did so in spite of the sport getting next to 0 air time or media coverage in the states. So obviously culture and media wasn't an issue.

So why? As it turns out, Americans and Aussies did a lot more flat tracking. This dovetailed perfectly with the bikes of the time frame, which were fire breathing dragons by comparison to the bikes that have emerged since the dawn of the MotoGP four stroke age.

In short, flat trackers were better suited to the 500cc road racing machines.

So how does that apply here? It does in that provides an example of perhaps were we need to look. Is there an American or Aussie style of riding that's different than English or French? Does it have more to do with training in muddy conditions than how a rider views and attacks a track? Is cross training on MX a good idea for a DH racer where carrying speed into and through a corner is more critical? Is this conversation concerning stiffness/compliance ratios or damper stiffness settings?

An in depth analysis would be awesome.

But a quick observation too me is that Minaar, Bruni, Vergier, Gwin, and even Bryceland when he was crushing it have a lot more in common than not in terms of energy and upper body management. Especially when compared to Phil Atwill and Sam Blenkinsop.

 The way Intense treated Jack Moir after Gwin arrived really sucked. It was clear that is was Gwin's way or the highway and it forced Moir out after he was building a good base for his DH career. The Intense team of Gwin and Neko Mulally have achieved zero and any other riders would have been shown the door if it weren't for Gwins investment in the team, Mulally seem like a great guy and I like his commentary but he's struggling to even qualify at races now so his results don't justify his contract. Gwin's demands are hurting the Intense brand and they have fallen very far behind other bike manufactures as a result.

Minnar has a much more likable and approachable personality. Other racing personalities that sit better than AG would be Steve Peat, Gee Atherton, Cedric Gracia and Eric Carter!

 Injuries snuck up on him like they sneak up on so many. Two years ago it was a matter of when, not if Marc Marquez would smash all of Rossi's records. A busted arm and a head injury later the question is if, not when Marc will ride a full season again. It hasn't been so spectacular for Gwin, but it happens. I'd quite like to see him rack a couple more wins at least, aside from the Greg and Vouilloz there hasn't been a more focused rider on the World Cup.

 Gwin was dominant at riding consistently race winning pace without getting injured, but then he got injured and hasn’t gotten back on pace, and of course now there’s a new crew of young and fast (mostly French) guys on the scene.

Gwin, on the other hand, is running the long game and ensuring he can go out strong, with investments and super cars. Might be a distraction, but this guy has the gift and he can still bring it.
