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!”
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
