On the back of yet another successful year of racing for Trek Racing Australia we are excited to announce a financial commitment of $300,000 over the next three years to the Team from our founding and long term supporters, the Peil Family.
2014 saw Trek Racing Australia rider’s claim 7 National titles across XCO, XCM and 24hr Solo categories, representation at UCI MTB World Cups, UCI MTB World Champs, and the Commonwealth Games. Coupled with dominant performances like those achieved at the Kowalski Classic and the Highland Fling by Brendan Johnston & Dylan Cooper the Team is in a very strong position to keep moving forward.
Combined with the unrivalled support from industry leading companies like Trek Bicycle Corp Australia, Shimano Australia, Anytime Fitness, FOX, GU Energy Labs, Finish Line Lube and Aussie Butt, contrary to rumors, the Team is now very well funded until 2019.
Our absolute focus is to continue supporting Australian Mountain bikers. Our plan is to run frequent Junior Skills Development camps and use our Elite riders to mentor junior mountain bikers throughout the country. Our number one goal is to keep our riders on mountain bikes, give them a pathway to the world stage and decrease the bleeding of so much of this countries mountain biking talent to the road.
