If you follow Spoke‘s Twitter account, Like Us on Facebook or you were at the the last round of the DH Cup and at the Nationals you’d be aware that Napier based World Cup shredder Brook MacDonald has signed with energy drink giant and action sports sponsorship pioneer Red Bull. Red Bull sponsor only the best in the world in each discipline and for Brook, being one of chosen elite is a huge foot up in his DH career. He can now call upon an enormous team with vast training expertise in both fitness and mental preparation (plus he’ll never have to buy another New Era cap ever!). Ivan Mennim, New Zealand’s athlete manager for Red Bull had this to say about the deal: “We are really excited to have Brook as an addition to our international branded stable of athletes. I’m looking forward to working with him on a plan for the following years so he can reach his goals and basically kick ass.” Brook doesn’t seem too unhappy either; “I signed with Red Bull two weeks ago and I’m so stoked to be a part of this incredible team and family. I’m super happy being with Red Bull as it has opened a lot of doors and changed a lot of things for me already. I know it’s going to be a great relationship with these guys and having Red Bull’s support is a massive boost for my confidence. I’d always dreamed of being sponsored by Red Bull and it’s come true! I’m just so stoked to be representing these guys!”

  3. John Munro you are a tool. Brook has worked so hard to fulfill his dreams. He hasn’t let the teenage distractions of cars , booze & girls affect his riding. He is a focused, determined & talented rider who will be standing on the top of the world cup podium soon !

  5. G Boy your a fool. He hasnt payed for a single cent off his racing. Hes had the easy road for sure, By the way training isnt working your ass off haha, thats standard practise. Really working for a dream is actually setting out to achieve one. Brook has come across this by chance, Im sure there has been hard work involved but the oppourtunity merely presented itself he didnt make it happen like most have to.

    1. I’m going to smack you in the face next time i see you , thats gonna be a reminder of how your negative comments are not appreciated in the mtn bike world… 8 months later and Brooks world cup results speak for themselves shall i mention the world champs too ? dickhead

  7. John Munro what an idiot!!! It’s a great shame there are dickheads like you who can only look for negitives when someone has success. You’re deluded if you think this is all about luck… spose you think world champs was luck too??? You’ve got some serious growing up to do if this is the way you look at life. Awesome work Brook… very sad that you can’t achieve without some loser trying to take you down.

  17. John Munro i feel you are a head banger! how can a deal with red bull come by chance? in case you haven’t noticed its one of the most prestigious sponsors on the go so for no hard work to go in and land with that is impossible..
