Manon Carpenter – Madison Saracen – Great Britain:“I think I might be getting thrown in at the deep end here but hey, I love a challenge! Sixty of the World’s fastest guys to try and beat and a full on track is my kind of fun. Guess I’ll have to give it a go and see how I get on. I hear the Waterville Valley Resort is a fantastic place, so looking forward to our end of season trip to New Hampshire.”

Sam Dale – Madison Saracen – Great Britain: “I really excited about riding the gnarly Pinnacle track with big jumps and other riders all around me. I’ve also heard great things about the Boston area, so looking forward to a great party afterwards!”

Matt Simmons – Madison Saracen – Great Britain “looking forward to this new Pinnacle event and format for racing. Thinking about the track and line choices and having to contend with other riders in your face is bound to make things interesting for sure. Heard great things about the track so just getting out there and having fun on it will be awesome.”

We’re pretty excited – seeing as this event is pretty similar to the Red Bull event that never happened! The next team announcement is due to be made after Windham this weekend, so keep your eyes open for more news!
