Kiwi Matt Walker is joining the Pivot Factory Racing Team for 2019, alongside Bernard Kerr, Emilie Siegenthaler and Ed Masters.

"I'm always drawn back to them as they have been hands down my favorite bikes to ride," says Walker, who has ridden Pivots on and off throughout his career. For the 2019 season, he will be competing in both World Cup Downhill and EWS, as well partaking in the Crankworx events throughout the season. The first major race is Crankworx Rotorua, which is just around the corner in March.
