Merida Flight Centre MTB Team

I’m pleased to announce that I will be flying the colours of the Merida Flight Centre Team next year.  While the national team of Terri Rhodes, Jodie Willet, Adrian Jackson and James Peacock will be hitting up the high profile races throughout Australia and overseas, the state branch (myself and several others) is aimed at supporting developing riders with potential nationwide and, perhaps most importantly, enables me to concentrate on my final year of study without lots of travel and time away from home.  Obviously, I’m pretty thrilled and looking forward to a great year ahead.

State riders are supported by Advanced Traders (the Australian distributor of Merida bikes), SRAM, Shimano, Schwalbe (tyres), Shotz (nutrition) and JetBlack Products (the local importer of NiteRider Lights).  Local bike shops also play a huge role in supporting team riders.  As my body responds so well to the Verofit products I have been using I will continue to use these as an alternative to Shotz.

Christening the new bike out on some of my favourite local trails. How nice is the view?

The new bike has redefined my definition of unbelievable.  I felt it only fair to give it its very own post.
