While they’ve had the Cube Action Team doing enduro (etc.) since 2011, Cube have, their words, “been absent from the downhill scene for a long time”. To fix this, they’ve just announced the Cube Global Squad, made up of Scottish rider Greg Wiliamson, and New Zealander Matt Walker.
They’ll be riding the Cube Two15, of which Greg instagrammed a picture, describing himself as “stoked”. Matt is formerly a privateer and stated “After doing the hard time as a privateer I am so pumped to be on board with the CUBE Global Squad and to have the support needed to race consistently and competitively”.
“Global Squad” sounds impressively dramatic, as if Greg and Matt will be teleported to start lines from a spaceship in high orbit. Which would be super.
