This year’s best championship rider

With her bronze medal from the World Championships, Ingrid Boe Jacobsen is this year’s best, Norwegian championship rider for mountain biking. We think that calls for just a bit of extra attention.

Ingrid would never label herself in this manner. However, the results speaks for themselves: Last weeks’ medal from the XCE World Championships event will be the best championship result for Norwegian mountain biking in 2014. Her two podium placing’s from the World Cup also this year, serves only to support this fact.

It’s our hope that the Norwegian Cycling Federation are working towards the UCI on securing the XCE as an event also for the future. Not for our or Ingrid’s sake, but because we believe that the event holds something that might widen the recruitment base for mountain biking. The instant action, explosive nature, combined with need for exceptional technical skills, is something that for sure intrigues young people of today.

The World Championships on home soil concludes the season in many ways, although there are a couple of more races left. So, on that note we would also like to give our heartfelt thanks to everyone following and sponsoring us this year, home and abroad. From our riders in particular: Thank you very, very much!
