All of our riders have their own unique style on the bike, as well as being fantastic voices for the Marin brand. With a mix of both racers and social media stars, there will be a steady stream of content being developed as well as working with our product team on development and feedback.
“We are pleased to introduce you to a group of young up and comers, who are starting out in their career as professional athletes and will carry the Marin torch for a minimum of the next two years,” says John Oldale, Team Manager. “Additionally, we have a veteran athlete who brings years of top-level performance and excitement. Be sure to follow along as these riders bring their adventures to events and screens worldwide.” Matt Jones@mattjonesmtb
