The MS Mondraker team enters into the 2016 season with a lot of changes and some little surprises. After a so-so season with a lot of crashes and injuries,THEY went back to work, determined to return stronger for the new 2016 season.
Danny Hart and Markus Pekoll remain in the team, but the squad gets buoyed by the arrival of the 2015 junior World Cup overall winner and junior world champion Laurie Greenland.
MS-RACING, Markus Stoeckl:
“It was during the last races in 2015 that I met Laurie in person for the first time. By then it was already clear that he is one of the most promising young athletes to come up to elite category in 2016. But it was not just his riding skills that made a big impression on me but also his personality and happiness were a huge factor for me to come up with an offer for him.
Team manager Lukas Haider:
“We are stoked to have Laurie on our roster. We were looking for a passionate, race-driven character to join forces with Danny and Markus. With Laurie we found the right person and the future looks very bright indeed!”
“Furthermore we are happy to announce a last minute add-on to our team, which is Emmeline Ragot. This may be a surprise to most of you as Emmeline officially retired in 2015 and this should not be seen as a come back, but as a back door for her if she is able to recover 100% after her bad ankle and elbow injuries. We always stand by our riders to give them the optimal chances of success.”
“Apart from the A-Team lineup, we started again a B-Team support program under the responsibility of Maria Ulrich and Rainer Wollendorfer. The main focus will be on European races such as the European IXS cup where our promising riders, Fabian Ulrich, Matt Lawton and Pascal Engel will be competing.”
Enduro World Series
This season MS Mondraker will also support four riders on the Enduro World Series. Cyril Pages and Matthias Stonic will represent the team in the Masters category with two junior riders, Gabriel Torralba and Alexi Cuellar-Primot, competing in the U21 category.
