Canyon Factory Racing- The Team enters a new season of World Cup battles and Being on the top of world class racing, is part of our DNA. We started this project to test and develop our bikes to be the best they could be, but we also want to do the same with our riders, encouraging them to keep raising their game by backing them up with the most advanced support on the scene. I did it myself for more than 20 years, I still keep on doing it. Sharing my experience with the youngest and most talented athletes on the planet is a fantastic experience. I am simply proud and honour to run this project. 2018 has begun, and it’s going to be good! #racing #team #mtb Mavic Dainese Maxxis Tires SRAM RockShox crankbrothers
