Firstly some exciting team news...8x Swiss National Champion, current UCI No.8 and all-round nice guy Roger Keller is officially on the Trialtech team for the rest of the year! Roger recently received his delivery of Trialtech parts and you will be able to see him riding his new bike, fully kitted out with a whole range of Trialtech components, at the highest level of international competitions in the UCI World Cup rounds as well as many other Swiss and select european events!
As well as riding with Trialtech components, Roger will also be retailing the products alongside existing Trialtech importer Crash Cycles.
We wish Roger an excellent season both in and out of competition!
With Roger joining the team it now means there are three Trialtech team riders in the top 10 positions of the UCI World Cup rankings! Karol Serwin currently places 10th, Roger 8th and Rick Koekoek is 2nd over all! An excellent year so far for the Trialtech team riders, who are not only getting some great results but also helping closely with the development of some new products, so keep watching these updates for more news.
In more team news; sponsored riders Stan Shaw, Ali Clarkson and Adam Bessell travelled up to the latest round of the British National Championship held alongside the UCI World Cup DH event in Fort William, Scotland. There were competitions on both days and the boys came away with some great results! Adam finished second on both days in the Expert category, while Stan managed 6th and 3rd in the two Elite competitions and, coming back from an ankle injury, Ali rode to a 4th and 2nd place finish over the two days.
Dealer news now. We are pleased to announce that there is now official import/distribution for both Sweden and Denmark in the form of Rishede. Company owner Peter Rishede will be well known to many riders and dealers throughout Sweden and Denmark and we are proud to welcome him on to the Trialtech dealer network. Rishede will be actively helping in the promotion and distribution of the entire range of Trialtech products and will be receiving a wide range of stock items within the next day or two.
