Blumilk Junior Mountain Bike Team Race to Success!
Blumilk is excited and proud to announce the launch of a brand new ‘National Under 18 Development Downhill Mountain Bike Race team’ for the 2023 race season.
The newly formed team brings together six like minded and talented young downhill mountain bikers with their heart firmly placed in the North East of England. All our riders will be racing throughout this year at National and European level in Juvenile, Youth and Junior ranks of Downhill Mountain Bike racing.
Founders of the bike race team Colin and Adam said:
“Our primary goal is to promote team togetherness, and provide our riders with the stepping stone and support network they need, whilst also allowing these top UK riders to be seen and recognised by larger professional teams.”
“The ability for our team members to practice and train together in what is normally a very individual sport, creates motivation and a desire to achieve better results together. Our goal is to allow each rider the opportunity to aim for and achieve a level they never thought possible.”
Blumilk has a vested interest in supporting young talented individuals and teams to build partnerships with major bike brands during 2023, and the creation of this team, we hope, will be the basis of expansion and growth for years to come.
All our riders are professionally kitted out with our new team blumilk kit, which was designed by our creatives in-house and produced by Uncrafted.
We’re also delighted to announce that on the 12th February, Katie, who is 13 years old from Northumberland, won the entire Woman’s race against women of all ages, which was held at Danny Hart’s Descend Bike Park. This is a fantastic start to the season.
Adam, Creative Director and co founder of Blumilk Design and Marketing agency, raced professionally as a Downhill Mountain Biker and represented Great Britain across the world in his Junior years. He is also a National Championship medalist in 4x, before turning pro and moving his attention to road racing.
The Junior team will be managed by Colin, Managing Director and co founder of Blumilk who has been involved in mountain biking for over 35 years and began racing himself at 12 years of age.
Keep an eye out for future posts from us in the coming weeks, as the race calendar gets underway for this season.
