Our riders – Oisin O’Callaghan and Dan Slack pulled out all the stops to secure a podium topping 1st and 2nd place at this years UCI Junior Downhill MTB World Championships in Leogang, Austria. Both riders battled through rain, snow and axle deep mud to beat over 60 rider of the worlds best riders.

We picked up Oisin a couple of years back when his dad approached us about training his young boy and to give him a focussed training schedule. Oisin competed through YT’s talent program to win a place on the factory team to race this year, and he’s already proving how valuable he is.

Dan came on board at the start of this year when he joined Jack Reading’s team SR Suntour V1sion team.

With everything we’ve experienced this year with COVID lock downs and a lack of racing. It’s great to see our riders come out of the gate smashing it and hitting the top steps of the podium. We’re helping the future of downhill riders!

Both riders follow the Downhill Fit4Racing program and you can follow the same training plan right here!
