Despite having only launched the wheel range in May 2018, the HUNT family continues to grow with the addition of three new team members for 2020. Official press release:
From National Downhill Champions to Top 20 EWS racers, full time athletes and those splitting time between commitments, we couldn’t do what we do without them. Throughout the year they’ll provide us with a constant stream of feedback and suggestions, to ensure we stand by our promise to provide the best products for devoted riders like you.
Matt Stuttard “Last season I set my goals on a Top 20 overall World finish. From the word go we set out pretty well, bringing in some good consistent results, I was super happy to come away confident. Bring on 2020!” Chloe Taylor “I’m really excited to be riding for Hunt and Privateer this season. I’ll be racing these products around the world on the Enduro World Series. I’ve been training really hard this off-season to make myself fighting fit as the women’s field is so strong at the moment! Let’s go!!!” Matt Simmonds “For 2020 I’ll be taking a step away from World Cup racing to focus on my new venture ProLine MTB coaching. However I won’t be completely moving away from racing, still plan to be competitive at British Downhill and Enduro races, plus other select events.” Becci Skelton “This season I have 2 main goals – First one to is to retain my National Overall DH title along with heading to some races across the channel in Europe doing a couple of IXS races and also try the EWS in France” Jamie Edmondson “I’m excited to be taking on my first year in Elite DH, racing a full World cup program. Not only that, I’ll be out at some of the European rounds of the EWS.” Rob Williams “Riding the full EWS season is my main goal for the season. I’ve been training hard over the winter and hope to see a solid improvement in results compared to last season, with goals of top 30 stage times.” Sophie Tyas “After a break from racing, for 2019 I was back between the tape and excited to take the BC DH Cup overall. This season I am going to ride my bicycles for pure bliss – be it racing, riding or content creation.” Liam Saint “Splitting time between family and racing, my main focus will be the Pearces DH Series. Alongside racing, I’ll help to develop product and work on some upcoming media projects” Will Easey “This year is more about having fun and creating content. Although I’ll still be doing the odd Welsh enduro or National round along with a big trip to the Alps in the summer, possibly with some racing involved.” Chris Sutcliffe “Last season I probably didn’t race as much as I could have, so this year I be focusing on getting some solid results at National Enduro Rounds, plus maybe some DH races as well” Kerry Wilson “Being based out in Morzine for the majority of the year, the IXS European Downhill series is my main goal. From that I’m also hoping to score enough points to be able to race a World Cup round” Dylan Layzell “Having to sit out the majority of last season with injury was tough, so this year I’ll be making the most and enjoying being back out on the bike. I’ll be racing at a number of events and working on various media projects.” Oli McKenna “I stepped away from racing last season to raise my family but now I am chomping at the bit to get back racing. My main focus for this season is the British Enduro series” Dom Knight “I’ll be splitting my time between working and riding for HUNT, with the aim to produce a range of media projects throughout the year. With another Whistler summer to look forward to, I want to continue focusing my time there, pushing my riding, the content I create and my career.”
