Nina Hoffmann has today announced the details of her new racing team, Nina Hoffmann Racing.
Nina will be running her own set up supported by Stif Mountain Bikes. Stif is a Santa Cruz owned dealership that operates 2 shops in the UK, one in Yorkshire and one in Bristol, this means Nina can continue riding V10 29 in 2020. She will be the only rider on the team but will be traveling to all the World Cups as well as select iXS races and there's even the suggestion she'll be turning her hand to some enduros as well.
Nina was one of a number of elite women who burst onto the scene in 2019 as she picked up three podium finishes, including a 2nd place in Leogang, on her way to finishing fourth in the overall standings.
Press Release: Nina Hoffmann Racing
Stif Mountain Bikes is ready to kick start the 2020 race season in a big way – we’re stoked to announce that rising DH World Cup star, Nina Hoffmann, will be flying the Stif Mountain Bikes flag across the globe throughout 2020 under the team name: Nina Hoffmann Racing - Stif
In 2019 the 23-year old German racer proved she was a force to be reckoned with aboard her Santa Cruz V10 and showcased some incredible results, including a 2nd place podium spot at the UCI World Cup in Leogang. Nina’s insane levels of dedication as a rider, coupled with our support and 100% mountain bike focus, provides a killer recipe for more podiums and good times throughout the 2020 season.
Stif is founded on a passion for racing bikes and it has led to us supporting a host of riders over the seasons. The past few years our race team has become an extension of the Stif family and represented at some of Europe's biggest race events. Welcoming Nina’s energy to the Stif crew reflects a desire to serve more riders across Europe.
Nina will be attending every World Cup round, some IXS cups and a variety of other downhill and Enduro races. She founded her own UCI Team as a means to compete at the highest level on her own terms.
Nina Hoffmann Racing - Stif is operated by team manager Sven Heitmann and mechanic Erik Fickelscheer thanks to the support of the partners:
