Press Release: Danny Hart & Emmeline Ragot Join MS Mondraker DH Team
MS Racing and Mondraker Bicycles are pleased to announce the signing of two former downhill World Champions as both Danny Hart and Emmeline Ragot join Innes Graham and Markus Pekoll on the team line-up for 2015.
British downhill star Danny Hart is a rider that needs no introduction. In 2011 the racer from Redcar took downhill gold at the UCI World Mountain Bike Championships in Champery, Switzerland with a run that was not only 11.69seconds faster than second place but would also go in history for its display of riding skill and pure style. His ultra-wet race run would soon go on to become a YouTube sensation amassing nearly 3 million views to date as viewers around the world enjoy the impressive lesson in bike handling.
Joining Hart in the MS Mondraker team pits for 2015 is French racer and two times World Champion Emmeline Ragot. Ragot finished the 2014 season 2nd in the UCI world rankings and the 2009 and 2011 World Champion will be looking to add to her impressive C.V this season as she returns to the Austrian based team.
Completing the 2015 MS Mondraker team line-up are long-term team member Markus Pekoll who continues to impress with his speed and style and young Scottish racer Innes Graham who returns to World Cup racing once again after recovering from injury.
The UCI elite team will complete around the globe on board the newly released Mondraker Summum Carbon Pro Team bike as they look to add more titles, race wins and gold medals in 2015.
