FUNN are pleased to announce that they have just signed a deal with Foes Racing to support their race team for the 2004 – 2005 season.FUNN will be taking the place of previous long term sponsor Azonic to add to there list of internationally supported riders which currently include Nathan Rennie, Ryan Leech, Gaspi, Mike Jones and the Atherton’s family to name but a few. The team setup will comprise of 2 sections, Foes/Funn which will consist of 2 riders Rich Houseman and Cory Gustafson riding 4x and downhill and the FUNN/Foes team which will be made up from 2 Australian riders Shane Wode and Kamakazi. The team was launched at the recent Sea Otter event and will be hitting all Norba and selected international races this season.

Both Shane and Kamakazi just arrived in time from Australia to race Sea Otter and are looking forward to using the Foes design to their advantage between them they have tallied up an impressive number of podiums of the past few years. Shane Wode has been 3 times national champion of Australia, which is pretty impressive considering the company he is keeping over there. Kamakazi is a pretty recent convert to MTB from BMX where he recently was crowned European champion in both pro class 20inch and 24inch while riding for his previous sponsor Redline. At the recent Sea Otter 4x event Kamakazi qualified third quickest and was seen leading out many better known star riders including Mike King over the first jump ( as pictured below) so if that is anything to go on there should be some top results on the way.

Foes long term team rider Rich Houseman, ranked 9th nationally will bring his consistency of doing well at any venue and Cory Gustafson is back racing semi-pro DH & 4X and his hunger for the podium is stronger than ever.

The Foes/FUNN riders will be riding Foes frames, FUNN components and Curnutt suspension and will receive full back up from the Foes race support setup at all US national events, so look out for those super sexy red bikes with FUNN components at a race near you.
