Our first factory DH racing team is ready to push the boundaries

Our roots lie in racing. Our story is racing. We’ve been on top of the podium before and we can’t wait to get back. Mondraker Factory Racing is the means to this end. We have launched our first-ever factory DH racing team and support it with the global commitment of our infrastructure and people.

Mondraker Factory Racing. RACE NEVER END.
We know what it takes to win. We know how to develop a racing-ready motorcycle. It was only a matter of time for us to take the final step and build the Factory Racing Team. This is a 100% Mondraker project with some of the best riders in the world. From our very first World Cup victory in Maribor in 2009 to our triple victory at the Vale di Sole World Championships in 2016 to today, we have never let up in developing our technology and infrastructure and expanding our means to win, and we will not back out quickly! Everything we have done since then has brought us to the present. Everything we did led us to Mondraker Factory Racing.

Mondraker Factory Racing consists of nine support staff and three drivers. We’ll be introducing them sequentially on social media on January 18th, 22nd and 24th. Team manager Jorge García, who has been an important part of the World Cup scene for several years, said: “This is a very exciting time for both Mondraker and the team. Having the chance to develop a project like this from the ground up with the brand I grew up racing with is a dream come true. Additionally, I couldn’t be more excited about the riders we’ve signed and the team we’ve put together behind them. Everyone got along well from the start and we love the passion for racing that Mondraker brings. We are also committed to bringing all the development that competition brings to the production line and making it worthwhile for the brand.”

100% factory support
One of the key factors behind Mondraker Factory Racing is the unwavering support it receives from the factory. Miguel Pina, CEO of Mondraker, is here to tell us more: “With Mondraker Factory Racing we are entering a new stage in competition. There is no denying that our passion for racing has always been inextricably linked to our roots as a brand. Our goal has always been to develop the best technology available and push it to the absolute limit on some of the toughest race tracks in the world. Therefore, it was inevitable that we ended up where we are: at the Mondraker Factory Racing Team, because we simply knew that we wanted a structure with all the resources of the factory to meet the needs and potential of some of the best riders in the world to do justice to it as best as possible. In short: We want Mondraker to be back at the forefront of world-class downhill racing. It’s a big step in our history as a brand to make history in mountain biking’s Formula 1.”.

Don’t forget that on January 18th, 22nd and 24th we will be introducing our riders on social media (Mondraker Bikes / Mondraker.Factory.Racing).
