Junior World Champion and Hardline winner Ruaridh Cunningham has parted ways with Unior Tools Team.
Cunningham enjoyed four years with the team in which he twice podiumed at Hardline and delivered a career best ninth placed finish in Lenzerheide this year. Ruaridh also stepped on the podium of many iXS EDC, BDS and SDA events, two of those times he was on top of the podium.
Cunningham said: “I’ve really enjoyed the last four seasons with Unior and we’ve had some awesome times along the way. They have been nothing but supportive from the very beginning and I’m very grateful to have been given the opportunity to race for them.”
It was also announced that Ruaridh’s team mate and fellow Scotsman Reece Wilson would be looking for a new team too. Wilson was scouted to the team by Cunningham and he delivered impressive results including 25th from MSA and 26th from Val di Sole in 2015 and 30th place from Leogang in last season.
Wilson said: “I feel like a young bird fledging the nest this year. The guys at Unior took me under their wing from my second year of racing and supported me right up to where I am today! It’s been a truly amazing experience. It’s time for me to move onto the next chapter of my career, which is scary but dam exciting!”
