Two years ago Keegan Wright made himself known in the mountain bike world by taking silver in the pumptrack challenge at Crankworx Rotorua. Since his second place finish, Wright has progressed as an enduro and downhill racer, taking first place in the New Zealand Elite Downhill National Championships this year. After a brief stint with Specialized, Wright signed on to Devinci’s race team in October. One month later, Wright’s making edits aboard his Spartan in New Zealand.
