Downhiller Bernat Guardia will be riding for the DH Massi Team in 2009. The Spaniard, who last year won the Maxxis Cup and came 11th in the UCI World Cup, will ride the firm’s Toro DH bike. He will also help Massi design a new downhill machine.
Guardia, who signed his new contract yesterday, said he was looking forward to working with team manager Luis Oulego and cross-country rider Pau Zamora, and hoped to make it back into the World Cup top 10. He said: “I’m very satisfied with the team.”
