Mojo annouce 2007 Team riders
And they’ve got some of mountain biking’s best riders…
Mojo Suspension is pleased to announce its 2007 race team line up. We will be working with some of mountain biking’s most committed athletes with a diverse line up of talents from elite downhillers to specialist, 24 hour solo riders.
This year Team Mojo Suspension will have full factory backup from Orange MTBs as the main UK team for 2007. The FOX Racing Shox suspension will obviously be the finest in the business, brakes and hubs will be supplied by Hope Technology and Fox Racing Europe will be providing our downhill team with apparel and goggles.
The line up
Julien Camellini – Elite DH
At 22 years old, Julien is one of France’s most accomplished downhill mountain bike riders. For 2007 he’s coming to the UK to study, so he has decided to do some UK National racing while he’s here. Julien is a former European DH Champ with a string of World Cup top ten performances to date including a podium finish. With an eye on the World Champs in Scotland later this year the UK is the perfect place for Julien’s preparation which will involve competing in the NPS and travelling to World Cup events.
Julien: “I feel really happy to work with Mojo for 2007. They have a great spirit and ambitions for the future. The bikes are good and they’re really motivated to work, for me it’s important to work with people like them. We are going to work a lot on suspension settings, they have such a huge knowledge that I’m going to progress a lot on this”
Dan Stanbridge, (Stanny) – Elite DH
We’re happy to be keeping Dan on the team for 2007, it should be his best season yet. Dan has continued to show good progress through 2006 confirming his place as one of the UK’s top downhill riders with his best ever World Cup performance on the track that will host the World Champs in September.

Anthony O’Boyle – Elite XC
Anthony was the UK’s top ranked expert XC rider in 2006 aboard his 140mm travel, Team Mojo, Orange 5. Anthony has already proved to all the hardtail-loving, XC guys out there that big travel can and does work for cross country. For 2007 he is moving up to the Elite category and will be concentrating on NPS events. He also intends to have his first shot at World Cup racing.
Paul Murrin – 24Hr Specialist
Paul finally won his first Mountain Mayhem 24hr solo race in 2006, he has already won a few Sleepless in the Saddle events previously, but the big one had eluded him until this year. Add to this a selection of top finishes in various 12hr and marathon events and you can see why Paul is considered by many to be one of the UK’s finest endurance riders.
Paul took the Mountain Mayhem win on his 140mm travel, Team Mojo, Orange 5.
