The Just Reid Race Team have announced they will again be using Iron Horse bikes in 2009, despite worries over the future of the company.
Team riders Ben Reid and Adam Brayton will use Sunday World Cups for downhill racing and MK 111s for trail duties, and their new bright yellow kit should be impossible to miss on the slopes.
For 2009, the team have switched from Fox to RockShox suspension. Other sponsors include Rockstar Energy, Thor, Giro, Gamut, Sun Ringle, Shimano, Sixsixone, Maxxis, Aztec, P&O Irish Sea and Funn.
In a statement, the team said: “There has been a lot of talk surrounding Iron Horse. However, for UK distributors Jim Walker it is still business as usual with regards to sales and service of all bikes.
“Both Ben and Adam have been racing on the Sunday frameset for the past few seasons and were stoked to be able to continue with this race-proven design for another season.
“Jim Walker’s input has been a big help for us and it is great to see that one of the most popular downhill bikes in the market will continue to represent throughout the world.”
