Dangerboy bicycle components would like to congratulate team riders on ruling the Canadian race circuit this season. With the final Canada Cup race at Sun Peaks now over the final results are in and the team has dominated the National scene.
Luke Kitzanuk who races for Giant Bicycles/Dangerboy is the overall series Champion he solidified this victory with his season opening win in Bromont, Quebec and his second place finish at the Sun Peaks finals last week. Luke will also be representing Canada on the National team at the World Championships in Italy this September.
Eric Goss who also races for Giant Bicycles/Dangerboy finished his Canada Cup season in third overall. Goss started the season by going to the hospital with a minor neck injury sustained in a crash before the first Canada Cup. The tough guy then bounced back and proceeded to overcome a series of mechanical mishaps and ended up on the series overall podium. Eric is the alternate on the National Team. He has had an especially good season as he was a full time engineering student over the winter and is working a near full time engineering co-op job this summer. Not sure where he finds the time to shred like he does.
Drew Mitchell (Cove Bikes/Dangerboy) has also had an amazing season. He is actually a junior racer, but after winning everything in sight for the last two seasons in Junior he has moved up to the pro ranks. Drew will also be representing Canada this September at the World Champs in Italy.
Danika Schroeter of Giant/Dangerboy also posted another insanely strong season by winning nearly every race she entered. She was perhaps Canada’s greatest hope for a podium at the downhill world championships, but she has elected to skip the race and focus on her semester at university.
Other racers on the team have also done exceptionally well and Jamie Biluk (Cove Bikes/Dangerboy) ended up 5th overall in the series. Mat Laurin (Devinci/Dangerboy) ended up with a series stage win in Tremblant, Quebec and he has earned a spot on the National Team and Kyle Ritchey, last season's best placed junior at the World Championships has made the National Team again.
On the freeride scene Wayne Goss was at Monster Park and is wrapping up his season in Europe filming for New World Disorder.
