South West based dirt jump outfit Team Huckmonkey.com/Ram Bikes UK have announced their line-up for the 2010 season, which includes newcomer Ashley Stares.
Stares, who was the overall winner of the Open King of Dirt competition in 2009, takes the place of Rory Hackett who leaves the team for pastures new.
Team manager Cliff Barbeary said: “Ash has been training hard over the winter months and is getting his trick bag dialled for the coming year of pro competition.”
The team is completed by 18-year-old Ryan Nangle, who’s been practising his flip variations over the winter, and Tim Peckham, who has now recovered from knee surgery.
Theywill be competing at BikeRadar Live 2010, every round of Dirt Wars UK and the UK King Of Dirt series, White Air 2010, Vienna Air King plus other European competitions and various demo days across the UK.
