News has just broke that Atherton Racing will now be joining Trek Factory Racing. As they did with GT they have signed a 3 year initial deal.
The news broke just two days after it was announced that Atherton Racing and GT Bicycles would be parting ways after 4 years partnership!
It is awesome to see a brand as big as Trek actively supporting female riders. With the retirement of Tracey Mosely this year from their Enduro team and no female in their Downhill team in 2015 they were seriously lacking in female representation.
Rach also seem set to get more girls on board with Atherton Racing this year.
Rachel Atherton “I’m also actively looking for a female rider.”
Gee: We’re stoked that we are going to have another season with Taylor Vernon
By the looks of it Trek have ended there partnership with their current riders; Brook Macdonald, George Brannigan, Laurie Greenland and Greg Williamson!
