Press Release: Steel City Media
During the winter months, Steel City Media and co have been grafting hard to forge a new type of program that focuses on bringing together and supporting individual riders, under the ‘UNION’ banner."Off to race we go"
Even though the focus this year is definitely World Cup DH orientated, this is just the start for the UNION. The long term aim is to support privateers and future talent, whatever their two-wheeled discipline may be, because whilst racing is life, riding outside of the tape is pretty sick too.The following riders will form our first chapter:Tuhoto Ariki Pene - NZD.
Current NZ DH Overall Champion, Val Di Sole 2019 WC Junior winner, Bronze Medal Junior Worlds 2019 and itching for his first proper season in Elite. @tuhoto_arikiFinn Hawkesbury Browne - NZD.

For everyone else, if you fancy a chat, a beer, or for the squids, somewhere to stash your gear, our pit is always open and secure thanks to our own viking/mechanic Joakim Sundfeldt who resides in the now infamous Jarvso, Sweden.
In 2021 you can find us based out of Morzine, before travelling to all of the UCI DH World Cups, Crankworx, select EWS races and more… In cahoots with Santa Cruz Bicycles and sheltered by Bike Morzine themselves, we’re also backed by these loyal supporters of the cause:Fox Suspension
