are proud to announce the new XC and Enduro focused, Team Santa Cruz-X Fusion.
Under management by Colby Pastore,
Will Curtis and Max Houtzager the team will focus on racing Pro/U23 at
select Pro XCT and North American Enduro Tour Races while also getting
generally rad on bikes!
couldn't be more stoked on the set-up we have for 2012. Like any team, Santa
Cruz-X Fusion is race-driven, and I am no exception to that rule. What makes
this team so awesome is that we are all brought together by more than
competitiveness and results. My hope for this program is to combine that drive
for racing with our general love for mountain biking and its lifestyle so that
we may become better racers, riders, and ambassadors for the sport. With the
support that we have from the cycling industry and friends, I know that we have
the tools to reach this potential." –Will Curtis
three of us young racers came from multiple seasons on the Whole Athlete-Specialized Junior/U23 Development Team,
where we learned to race at the national and international world cup level.
Products of racing in the Norcal Highschool League as well as enduro and
downhill races such as Downieville, the Northstar series, Oregon Super D
series, Ashland Mtn Challenge, and Crankworx Enduro, we know how to train
endurance, but also get rad on descents.
in Marin and Santa Cruz, we are a stone's throw from all our sponsors and
amazing trails for testing, training, and having fun, an ideal set up for
product development and preparation for some good results.
fantastic to be supporting such a driven group of young individuals with their
racing efforts.” Says X-Fusion Marketing Manager, John Hauer. "Santa Cruz
X-Fusion’s interest and ability to race in an array of endurance and gravity
events shows their true passion for riding bikes and is refreshing to see and
to be a part of.”
