Ahead of National Champs this weekend here’s the 2021 Making Up The Numbers Team Launch Video. Enjoy!
Massive spoiler, it’s exactly the same race team as 2019 & (although we didn’t get to do any racing) 2020.
Kieran Davies – Elite Men
Fast. Made our dreams come true when he raced the 2019 Maribor World Cup in a Making Up The Numbers jersey. Couldn’t attend the filming as he was practicing at Revolution Bike Park. Commitment level – Extreme
Neil White – Veteran 40 – 44
Former National Champion & Masters Worlds Medallist. Bought the family a caravan so they could spend the weekend at his local DH trails which are 20 minutes from their house. “They love it.” Apparently. Actually understands how suspension works, already won 3 races this season, won’t hear anyone say a bad word about the V10. Commitment level – Max
George Thompson – Veteran 45 – 49
Couldn’t stay over at the first National as he had to collect a giant dolls house en route & there wasn’t room in the van for that & his bed. Hasn’t done any regular exercise since March & according to Strava fitness level is currently 8/100 – an all-time low; talks a good game though. Commitment level – Low.
Richard Binns – Grand Veteran
Former National Series Champion. Isn’t racing National Champs as he’s off to Switzerland to meet his grandson for the first time. Survived lockdown on a diet of cheese & wine. Undefeated against George but now maintains that record by selectively choosing when & where he races. Commitment level – Very low
