n-reece-wilson

Reece came into downhill after an ankle injury that suspended his 11-year long and very successful motocross career. As it turned out – it stopped it. Reece got him a downhill bike to train and get fitter for motocross, but after his race – where he won – he was hooked. Meanwhile he also got to know Ruaridh, he actually got him into DH racing, and still plays a key roll in everything he does on the bike. We’re excited to have this amazing talent in our team for second year in a row.
