PRESS RELEASE: Saracen

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with one of the most popular mountain bikers in the country and current British Downhill Series Champion, Becci Skelton.

We have teamed up with the self-described “normal lass from north Lincolnshire” to support Skelton as she bids to get back to racing after a strange 2020. As one of the most likable personalities in UK mountain biking and boasting a fantastic race pedigree, Skelton will be racing the downhill circuit with her Saracen Myst Team and also be looking to race enduro on the Ariel LT. She is still the reigning British Downhill Series overall champion after a disrupted 2020, so first up for Skelton will be a desire to retain her title!

This is not the first time Skelton has piloted a Saracen in anger, as a Saracen Myst was the first downhill bike she owned back in 2014. She said: ““Absolutely stoked to be on the Saracens! The Myst was the first DH bike I bought back in 2014 and since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for them. It’s awesome to have gone full circle, and be back on one of the fastest bikes in the world with great support from the Madison guys. I can’t wait to get between the tapes and see what these bikes can do!”

Aled Gamble, Marketing Manager at Saracen, said: “As soon as we started talking about the possibility of working with Becci, we knew it was something we were really keen to make happen. For someone who started riding later in life, she has already achieved some great things and a lot of young riders really look up to her. Her passion for mountain biking is really infectious and her dedication to training is incredible. We can’t wait to help her achieve her goals this year and beyond.”

As part of the sponsorship, Skelton will also be running Shimano components, ODI Grips, Maxxis tyres and 100% Sunglasses.

 Great move for both Saracen and for Becci. Hopefully, with her talent on the bike and her engaging personality, more girls will be encouraged into riding and even racing.
