Cleaning gurus Muc-Off have announced a partnership with GT Factory Racing for 2013. The deal will provide support for the Atherton trio, plus Marc Beaumont and two new signings – promising young riders Taylor Vernon and Martin Maes.
The team hope to build on a succesful 2012 season, when highlights included taking the fastest World Cup team title, Rachel Atherton's overall World Cup title and Gee Atherton taking podiums in every World Cup race.
Marc Beaumont was also returning solid World Cup results, while Dan Atherton's focus on enduro racing paid off, with a third place finish during the Megavalanche, among other wins. Welsh rider Taylor Vernon will join the downhill team to train, while the Belgian Martin Maes will be teaming up with Dan Atherton on the enduro team.
Muc-Off will be adding the partnership to an impressive lineup of athletes they already support, with everything from mountain biking and motocross to the Sahara Force India F1 team.
Team manager Dan Brown announced the partnership with Muc-Off by saying: "The whole team is made up with the new partnership with Muc-Off. The riders, mechanics and management all use the product. It's the best there is for keeping our race bikes looking and running like the world beaters they are."
To celebrate the new partnership the team are also offering the chance to win signed gear – see the Muc-Off Facebook page for more details.
