Trek World Racing has named Royal Racing as its downhill race apparel sponsor from 2011. Royal will also provide casual clothing for the entire team (non-gravity riders included). The two-year deal will see Trek’s downhill riders wearing Royal's gloves, jerseys, shorts and pants.
Commenting on the deal, Royal Racing's managing director, Martin Lloyd Evans, said, "Over the last decade Royal has sponsored some of the best mountain bikers in the world. To us sponsoring an athlete is not just about getting our logo on a podium. We rely on the feedback of world-class athletes to ensure that our product stays ahead of the competition and its performance is second to none, so anyone who puts a pair of our shorts on, or pulls a Royal jersey over their head, knows they are wearing the best kit available in terms of design, materials and manufacture. From world champions to weekend trail-centre riders, we cloth mountain bikers and it's a responsibility we take very seriously."
Trek World Racing includes: current World Champion, Tracy Moseley, Worlds silver medalist Neko Mulally and top ten world cup rider, Justin Leov. For 2011 USA DH Champion, Aaron Gwin will join the team.
Further news of the deal, sneak previews of kit and rider interviews will all appear on royalracing.com in the coming months.
