Press Release: Muc Off
Muc-Off is proud to announce it will become official title sponsor for World Cup downhill racing team Commencal / Muc-Off by Riding Addiction, previously known as Commencal Vallnord, for the next three years.
The global team based in France is well-known for taking over the downhill scene in the past two years, with 25 World Cup podiums since 2018, including 17 wins. The 2020 team consists of Amaury Pierron, World Cup Series Winner in 2018 and Runner-Up in 2019; Myriam Nicole, 2019 World Champion, Thibault Daprela, Junior World Cup Series Winner in both 2018 and 2019, Rémi Thirion, World Cup Series Veteran, as well as team owners, Gaëtan and Thibault Ruffin. French Canadian young talent Tristan Lemire aiming to debut at the World Cup in 2021, will be racing this season primarily in select North American and European races.
Meet the 2020 Commencal / Muc-Off roster
Muc-Off will be supplying the team, including both riders and mechanics, with a full arsenal of products from their Clean, Protect and Lube collections. This includes the renowned pink Nano Tech Bike Cleaner; the flagship product that launched the brand back in 1994.
With Muc-Off’s recent investment in state-of-the-art tribology equipment, the team will also benefit from the brand’s in-depth research and development around high-performance products and world-leading drivetrain optimisation.
On top of that, Commencal / Muc-Off will be running the full Muc-Off range of tubeless products - from Tubeless Valves and No Puncture Hassle Sealant to the Muc-Off Rim Tape and other tubeless accessories to ensure the riders remain puncture-protected during the course of the 2020 UCI World Cup Series.
All riders - with the exception of Red Bull athlete Myriam Nicole – have now received their custom Bell team helmets, designed by the in-house creative team at Muc-Off, and will be racing in their own individual designs by the start of the season. Amaury Pierron was the first to benefit from his very own design and the Monster Energy x Muc-Off custom helmet, with bold pink tiger print and silver stars, has already been taken for a few test laps at the team training camp in Portugal.
