Words: UCI Mountain Bike World Series

After missing out on the majority of the 2022 UCI Downhill World Cup season with Trek Factory Racing, Reece Wilson comes into 2023 armed with confidence. We caught up with Reece at home in the Scottish Borders to discuss how life has changed since his World Champs win in 2020, the joy of getting back behind the bars of his downhill bike, and his point to prove as World Champs returns to Fort William this year for the first time since 2007.

 I can't believe he's DHing in Scotland today after those massive drops he was doing off his porch in BC yesterday. He must have a killer agent to be able to work out sponsorship deals with two different brands so he can split his time between DH and Freeride.

 So I counted about 25 - 30 different printed words on his gear, I cannot believe that with this many sponsors on average MTB athlete brings home about 5k in a YEAR!!!! His outfit looks like highway billboard somewhere in Eastern Europe Big Grin
