New Sponsors for Dan & Bec

Comments Comments

You may have heard that Bec Henderson and Dan McConnell are no longer riding for the Trek Factory Racing Team and wondered what they were doing. We’ll the dynamic duo – two of Australia’s best XC racers – have just announced their plans for the 2017 season.

Bec Henderson and Dan McConnell have partnered with Scott Bikes Australia. They will run their own private team with the support of Mitas tyres, Motion clothing, TORQ Nutrition, Adidas Eyewear and Stan’s NoTubes. However, Bec and Dan are still looking to secure their major sponsor for 2017.

Bec and Dan have had a positive start to the year, taking out wins at the first four rounds of the Australian National Series. They will debut their new Scott Spark and Scale bikes at the final two rounds of the National Series this weekend in Bairnsdale, Victoria where they hope to secure the overall Australian National Series titles.

The Australian season will culminate in March with the Oceania Championships in Toowoomba followed by the Australian Championships in Canungra, Queensland – the home of the 2018 Commonwealth Games mountain bike event.

Despite the dramatically reduced level of support in 2017, the goals for Bec and Dan remain the same. They are striving to be at the peak of the sport and will continue to fight for the podium at the World Cup rounds this season, kicking off on the 21st May in the Czech Republic.

This year’s World Cup season consists of six rounds across Europe and Canada followed by the World Championships held on home soil in Cairns, Australia in September.

If you would like to support Bec and Dan, keep your eye out for their own high end cycling clothing line manufactured by Motion – all profits will go directly to their 2017 international team expenditure – visit www.motionneverstop.com.au

Good luck Dan and Bec!
