Video: Patrick Laffey Moves Up to the Unior Devinci Factory Racing Team

Feb 4, 2020
by UniorDevinciFactoryRacing  

The young Vancouver Islander surprised many last year during his first races in the World Cup. The 18-year-old Laffey joins the UDFR with an impressive track record: three Junior Top-5s in five World Cups, good for fifth place in the overall ranking of the Series.

bigquotes“It’s a great source of pride for Devinci to see Patrick make the leap from our Development program to our Factory team. Pat was able to show his formidable speed and potential last season with three podiums on the World Cup circuit. For us, there’s no doubt: he has to be provided with all the support possible on the Factory team. He’s one of the young talents who stand out and excel in the sport at a young age. We know he’ll go far. We’re very proud to support him in his quest for World Cup podiums!”Bastien Major, Team Manager

 Being local to Patrick's home turf, I saw this article posted (for about 5mins before being inexplicably pulled) a few days ago... not sure what happened there - but glad to see its back. Great to see him taking on the world (literally). Van Isle sure can crank out the talent.. hell, here in the Comox Valley there are all sorts of young guns hitting the world stage.. inspiring to say the least!

 I'm stoked to have so many young rippers from the I mean Vancouverites... making waves on the world stage. The trails here... er... I mean there... continue to produce great world class riders. Must be something in those Lynn Valley headwaters
