Ben Reid rides the Horse for 2009
Ali Beckett, Ben Reids mechanic/driver/cook turned Just Reid Race Team manager just sent over more team details of the bikes and bits Adam Brayton and Ben Reid will be riding for 2009.
Ali said "The team are happy to confirm that for this coming season the riders will be on brand new Iron Horse Sunday frames.
There has been a lot of talk surrounding Iron Horse over the beginning of the year and various press releases and articles have explained various pieces of the puzzle, however for the UK distributor, ‘Jim Walker’ it is still business as usual with regards to sales and service of all bikes.
“The UK range of bikes for 2009 is largely unaffected as most of the range was changed to UK specific bikes and Jim Walker takes shipments direct from the factory, which have already been delivered. So the UK distribution is currently continuing with back-up stock and any service issues should still be directed to Jim Walker as usual.”
Both Ben and Adam have been racing on the Sunday frameset for the past few seasons and were stoked to be able to continue with this race proven design for another season. Jim Walkers input has been a big help for us and it is great to see that one of the most popular downhill bikes in the market will continue to represent throughout the world.
