World Cup News:Marc Beaumont re-signs for GT

Billy Thackray Billy Thackray

After his Val Di Sole win we’ve always thought Slugger would be staying with GT for 2011 and now it’s confirmed.
Will Mick Hannah be staying as his team mate? Wait and see.

The UK’s Marc Beaumont has re-signed to ride for the GT factory team in the 2011/12 season.

Following a great season for Marc, culminating in his win at round 5 of the UCI DH World Cup in Val Di Sole, Italy. Marc has re-signed for GT for 2011. Marc, currently in Brazil riding in the RedBull Downtown race in Santos, said “I am so happy to be riding for GT bicycles again and also continuing my long relationship with Fox clothing . I am hoping to build on my success in 2010 and we will see where that gets me! I’ll be competing in the BDS series and the UCI World cup Series. It’ll be great fun and I’m very excited for the coming season.”


Marc’s stellar 2010 left him finishing 5th in the overall World Cup standings in a year where there were some particularly strong athletes competing. Ever the professional, 26 year old Marc has a strict training regime both on the bike and in the gym and will be hoping to carry through the form he’s shown in 2010 to the new season. On a familiar bike and with the GT teams support we’re sure he’ll continue improving, 1, 2, 3 and 4 had better watch out!

    Great to hear! Marc was a very cool guy when I talked with him at the worlds at St.Anne and he deserves this. Hope they keep Mic too, he just had an off year I think.

    Great work Marc. Anyone remember him from his very early days onboard that Intense at Bringewood and Hopton? Marc was that small his Dad used to help him push it up the hill!
    Were all looking forward to you defending your Halo BDS series winner title as well this year.
