This year’s edition of the Unior Devinci Factory Racing program is undergoing a lot of important changes that some of you racing fans may already have noticed.
We recently announced the signing of Irish Enduro sensation Greg Callaghan, and the promising young BC downhill racer Patrick Laffey. We are now happy to confirm that we will continue with a few familiar faces this year. First, Keegan Wright, who will primarily focus on the Enduro World Series and the Crankworx Series, and Dakotah Norton and Jure Zabjek are back and will both be setting their sights on the UCI DH World Cup. Tanja Zakelj will again be our sole representative in XCO. In 2020 she’s got her eyes on the Tokyo Olympics and the UCI XCO World Cups. Finally, another Canuck is joining our squad this year. Georgia Astle from Whistler BC is stepping up from Devinci’s ambassador program as a co-factory athlete. In 2020 she’ll be attending all of the Crankworx events and adding select EWS and DH World Cups to her calendar.
2020 UDFR DH & ENDURO ROSTERA successful mountain bike race team is always backed by great partners, and 2020 is no exception. We are ecstatic to officially announce that we are entering a new partnership with Fox Suspension and Race Face Components. Fox Suspension will become the team’s official sponsor for forks, shocks and dropper posts. While the team has already been on Race Face wheels and cockpits for many years, the team will now also use their cranksets. Other new sponsors include Rapid Racer Products with their innovative bolt-on mudguards, Clif Bar, EC3D Compression with their cutting-edge compression and recovery gear, Royal Racing clothing and 7iDP protection gear for Keegan Wright and Greg Callaghan. Alpinestars remains the official clothing and protection gear sponsor for the DH athletes.

This year, our DH athletes will once again ride onboard Devinci’s downhill flagship bike, the Wilson 29. With its race-oriented geometry, we believe it’s the right tool for the job and now paired with Fox suspensions, we are 100% confident with our new set-up. Our Enduro racers will be on the Spartan 29 Carbon most of the year, they will both have unique colorways to match their unique personalities. Finally, our talented crew of mechanics will again rely on the trusty Unior tools to meticulously take care of all our athletes’ bikes.
