From Aaron Dolan, Communications and Marketing Coordinator
Vancouver, B.C. - Norco Bicycles is thrilled to announce the continuation of our partnership with mountain bike athletes Jill Kintner and Bryn Atkinson. Both riders have successfully led Team Norco International on the UCI World Cup downhill series for the past 3 years, and for 2015 Norco will sponsor their program to promote the sport and events outside of World Cup racing. They will compete primarily in North American gravity events to include; the Pro GRT series in the US, Sea Otter Classic, Crankworx BC/NZ, The Colorado Freeride Festival, select US Enduros, and create video productions closely tied with their sponsors. As deeply passionate and committed athletes, Bryn and Jill will also coach instructional skills camps in the Pacific North West to give back to their community and mentor the next generation of up and coming riders.
Jill and Bryn are valued members of the Norco family. "Since 2012 the couple have been a pleasure to work with here at Norco. It goes without saying that our bikes are better because of them," says Norco Team Coordinator Jonathan Duncan. "The exposure and results they bring to the table are of great value to our Norco brand, and we are very pleased to be able to continue working together."
Bryn and Jill had this to say "We're excited about the direction we are headed and the changes in our program - now we have the freedom to do the events that provide the most impact. Racing, filming, photo shoots, festivals, trade shows, and other special projects will keep us busier than ever! Norco is a great company with an awesome line of bikes and we couldn't be happier to continue riding for them!"
