Together with Intense Cycles, we wanted to support some deserving young up and coming DH athletes by acting as coaches, mentors, and friends.

After launching our Rider Development Team last year, things have just gotten bigger and better. For 2016, we have brought on board 16-year-old Jessie McAuley who will be racing in the competitive category of U17 Men. Our talented little team will hit the road to all of the BC Cups this year looking to learn, progress, go after our goals and have some fun while doing it.

 Ahhh, to be young again and to have Kovarik as a coach... Those young men and women are sure lucky to have those mad skills to learn from!

 Kovaric will go down as one of my favorite riders of all time. Absolute destroyer on a bike. Talk about totally demolishing a track. Seen him ride a few times and it sounded like a freekin avalanche coming down!! Him and Rennie back in the day. Aussie maniacs!! Those juniors sure are lucky!!

 It's great to see how much Intense invests in the youth riders to develop them. Not many brands are doing that. Heck, they have their Palmer team, Kovarik and the normal Intense DH team just in the spotlight.

 Fox Head (Clothing) =/= Fox Suspension.

 @Braston: Although you're right. He's talking about the fox suspension logo on the jerseys.

 Pigit77@ I would guess that even though it says (team) the riders may get discounts but not getting stuff givin to them so some riders just use what they got . . . . Now the coaching. That is where it's at! ! ! Good job Intense

 @DirtyHal: only one with a fox suspension logo is riding fox suspension! The one with the boxxer has the same jersey, but no logo.

But yeah, nitpicking. Either way, this is awesome and great to see kids ripping this hard
