Extra UK will also supply Chris with Easton – who are providing their new wheel sets and finishing kits, Cane Creek headsets, Fizik saddles and Deity cranks.
Chris had this to say: “2007 looks set to be a great year with fantastic backing from Extra UK and Intense bikes. I’m really pleased to be riding for Intense bikes and getting to take part in a number of different events. The set up is really relaxed and it’s good to work with such dedicated guys. It also really cool to have such a great brand supporting my new coaching company – Dirt School”
Chris will also be supported by Fox Shox – running Fox 40, 36 and 32 Forks and rear shocks. Hope will be supplying the new vented Moto brakes and some awesome carbon levered monos.
