Last year, Jack Moir, Neko Mulally, and Aaron Gwin formed the Intense Factory Racing team. Jack Moir confirmed his departure from the program last month, and today Intense Factory Racing has announced that Squamish's Seth Sherlock will be joining the team in 2020.

Over the past few years, Seth has been under the guidance of Kovarik Racing, but he has had had a relationship with Intense Cycles since the age of 10. In 2019, Seth landed on the radar with two UCI World Cup Junior podiums, including a win at the Lenzerheide World Cup. In his first World Cup DH season, Seth was able to finish a strong 4th place in the overall standings. For 2020, Seth will enter his second season as a junior with and is hungry for the 2020 World Cup overall Junior title.

bigquotesI'm really looking forward to working with Seth this year. We got to spend some time together at the end of last season and I was very impressed by his attitude. He's kind, humble, and a sponge for taking in information. Those are great attributes for a young person and when combined with his speed and recent race results, we knew we had a good fit. Seth has been climbing through the ranks on Intense bikes for years now so it's exciting for everyone here to see him making the transition to the factory program. I believe that as a team, we can give him the tools he'll need to continue to grow and we're looking forward to getting this new race season started together.Aaron Gwin

bigquotesSeth was still basically a little kid when we picked him up, and we didn’t have a bike that would fit him. But we were so impressed by his riding skills, his attitude and his commitment level at such a young age, I made him some custom “extra small” bikes just so we could get him on Intense.Jeff Steber, Intense Founder/CEO

bigquotesAfter spending some time together at events in 2019, I felt like Seth would be a natural fit for the team. It’s also pretty convenient that we live in the same town (Squamish, BC). Seth has a great family, who’ve been a bit part of his success, so we’re going to do our best to continue the momentum. Through my fitness training company, PerformX, I’m also assisting Seth with physical, nutritional, and mental development. In his 2nd year as Junior competitor, our entire team and sponsors are stoked for the 2020 World Cup season!Todd Schumlick, Team Manager

The team's full release will come next month after the team camp at the end of January.

 I ran into him riding with friends off Garbanzo somewhere. I'm like, "Hey are you Seth Sherlock? (which he likely was having 'Sherlock' on his jersey), Congratulations on winning at Len-zer-Heidi" or something along those lines, which he had done the previous weekend. He was very gracious about it and good to talk to, which isn't necessarily easy when you're a teen talking to weird adults, but it is strong sign of a successful pro-to-be. I am super stoked for him and hope he has a fantastic year. I hadn't realized he was a junior junior this past season so to get two podiums is excellent.

 pretty sure i remember seeing him, on a video, chatting after a race last year and thinking what a polite, grateful and humble kid he was.

 Seth, Jackson, Ethan and some of the other BC rippers have been racing our local series in Port Angeles for years. They all seem like really friendly level headed kids who also absolutely rip. Fun to watch them get super fast over the last few seasons.

 Its awesome to see him and Goldstone make it after their awesome Builder Movie segment a few years ago. Interesting to see them take different paths with racing and slope

 I only have heard of him because he was in a trail preview with Remy Metailler (99% sure). If that's him, I'd say he has a fast future ahead of him!

 they've essentially been developing him for a long time. He raced with Chris Kovarik under intense since he was a little grom.

 Shirlock is being trained by Shumlock on how to use a Padloc whilst all out of wedlock beneath the majestic hemlock and eating nothing but hamhock and playing a woodcock with a TV in the background on FraggleRock only wearing one sock and scatching his bro jock.

 Fred Durst would definitely steal those lines.

Just throw in something about kicking someone's a$$ (honestly, who is he kidding?!) and you got a new Limp Bizkit song.

 "The team's full release will come next month after the team camp at the end of January" Does this mean an additional pro-rider or the full-on press release is coming later.....or both?

 @rismo68: Maybe that we forget the old prices. It seems that they will raise if you compare em with the US and AU 2020 ones. Of course, it's Fox now instead of Rock Shox, but I don't know...

 @hamncheez: Hey now - that's my backyard you're dissin'! There's a reason most of the pros around the world come here to train. Well, it could be the weather. Or the fact that much of the major MtB industry is based here. No - I'm pretty sure it's our rad illegal trails!

 @hamncheez: Gwin had rad terrain growing up on his home planet before landing in So Cal.
