The new MS Mondraker team: welcome Danny Hart, Emmeline Ragot, Markus Pekoll and Innes Graham
"Dear friends, sponsors and interested public,
It got a bit quiet around the MS Mondraker Team since the big success in 2012, where the team was competing for the top spot in the UCI worldcup team ranking. For sure we had some good results, but we were missing the big victories we had in the past.
We run our team because we are race driven and hungry for victories, but we needed to set back for reorientation after the leaving of the two top team riders. We knew where we wanted to be, but we had to wait till our stars align for building our new line up.
We are happy to announce that worldchampion of 2011 Danny Hart will join our program and we welcome back worldchampion of 2009 and 2011 Emmeline Ragot, who was one of the main reasons for our success in 2012. Both will join our long-term member Markus Pekoll and our rookie Innes Graham.
Markus Stoeckl: "2012 was our best year, the team was fighting to get the top spot in the world cup team ranking and our riders developed impressively. After 2012 we had to let 2 of our riders and friends go, we focused on supporting Markus and Damien and started to look for new riders to built a new and fresh team which would be able to be on the top of the ranking again.
Now after years of talks and negotiations we are happy to welcome Danny Hart and all team members are looking forward to work with Emmeline again, she is a guaranty for great races and lots of fun while traveling and in the pits."
The main focus of the team will be the 2015 UCI mtb worldcup as well as the 2015 UCI MTB world championships in Andorra. Furthermore we are going to attend selected races of the BDS series and the European IXS cup series.
The whole team will compete on the new Summum CARBON with the support of Marzocchi suspension- the further sponsor lineup will be released soon.
