This summer we started to help out a new female downhill mountain biker Kerry Wilson, she previosly was a motor cross champ and has now moved over to mountain bikes.
She spent last season riding in Les Arcs, this summer she came over to Morzine to see what all the fuss was about.
She met up with Nick Gowan who runs our bike hire shop in Morzine to go for a ride and see what StartlineMTB could help her out with in terms of getting on to DH race scene. They went for a few laps on the Pleney, Nick says he was blown away at how quick she was and he thought that there is a huge amount of potential for her.
So we set about helping her service her bike and hooked her up with our brand partners at 661 protection.
She did a couple of the local mates races in Morzine and spanked everyone! She now has the bug for biking and want to do more races, off she goes and does 2 more French DH races and wins them both by a mile.
She has just competed in her 1st British National DH race in the Forest of AE, surprise surprise shes on the podium again! 2nd place this time, not bad for her 1st UK race!
Watch out for this up and coming mountain bike champ, we will not be surprised to see her on the world cup podiums in the next few seasons.
