Katy Curd signs for Giant

We've known this for a while now, but we've been patiently waiting for Kate to pop by the office with her new rides- except shes always out riding the things..! Basically, Kate entered the DH factor- as the only girl, and as well as being faster than a few of the guys in the comp got noticed by Scott and Rob- and Tracy Mosely who also happened to be there. Warner was so impressed that he made a few phone calls and signed Kate then and there- she'd definately destined for big things.

Tracy really started noticing Kate when she was watching her having fun at the bottom open section of Innerleithen- where Kate was getting massive air, even by blokes standards. She was hitting both the berms flat out- and getting a drift on out the second, before jumping on the gas. Tracy was immediately asking questions- 'Where's she from? Does she race? How old is she? We need a girl for the worlds...'

What?

A few days later I picked up the phone to Helen Mortimer from British Cycling, who was fishing around for some information on the little hotshot from Box, near Corsham. Helen expressed an interest in Kate- especially as she'd been talking to both Rob and Tracy. It seems she's better than she ever thought...
However, to get some decent results at the races, she's going to be going on a training camp with a few of the best riders in the UK at Fort William. She'll be taught tactics and will be helped out with training- as well as riding with her new Team Manager Rob. We'll update you with more info as soon as we have it- but it looks like we may have a young world beater in the making...

Rob's bike- like Kates, but massive...


Oh yeah, and if you doubt Kate's abilities without having seen her ride, here's a shot from one of her friends, Nick Peacy. The girl can jump...
