Danny Hart for Team Lapierre

High-flying Brit downhiller joins the big boys

Teenage British downhill sensation Danny Hart has signed for the Saab Solomon sponsored Team Lapierre for the 2008 season and will ride alongside lead rider David Vasquez and Greg Doucende.


Sixteen year-old Danny bagged most races in the UK last year, winning all national titles and ranking first in the SDA English National Champs, and first overall in the Scottish NPS Winter Race.

The team will be riding Lapierre’s new DH-200 and Spicy bikes, and will be clothed in Salomon gear, with bike bits from Mavic, Easton, Fox, Shimano, Hutchinson, Giro, E-Thirteen and Selle Italia.


Gilles Lapierre, Managing Director of Lapierre said: ”It’s a professional structure with international ambitions, which is in perfect harmony with the expansion strategy of Lapierre.“
