Contour, a market leader in hands-free video cameras, is pleased to announce its 2011 MTB squad. The team will consist of Cameron Zink, Cam McCaul, the Atherton trio and Matt Hunter.
"We try to partner with the most influential athletes in all categories whether that be moto, MTB or snow and I think that our global team bears that out," said Contour's Director of Partnership Marketing Dan Strickland, "I can't envision a better crew than the one we've assembled to demonstrate the leading edge of cycling's progression. Their mix of power, style and fearlessness redefines what's humanly possible. With them on board our community will have a front row seats."
Slopestyle and freeride legend Cam Zink had this to offer, "Contour makes filming an everyday possibility. I can go out by myself and get shit done without having to plan a trip, pay a filmer or beg someone to film a line. I flip the switch and just ride. And I don’t have a windsail or billboard sticking off my helmet while I do it."
World Cup downhiller Rachel Atherton also commented on the Contour cameras, "I’m so excited to get to the first World Cup and link GPS camera to my phone, so our team can sit in the pits and watch us smashing down the race track…seeing the hits and crashes!” She continued, “It's such a good tool at races – to be able to chill out in the evening and compare and watch lines and explore the track with my bros, pretty valuable I would say"
Zink, McCaul, Hunter and the Athertons will be riding and competing in high-profile events across the globe for 2011, including Crankworx, the full UCI World Cup campaign and select FMB Series events. The 2011 MTB team will record all of their exploits from inside the action in high-definition, and sharing it on Contour's online community.
