The other day we took a look at Connor MacFarlane's new Black Market Killswitch and mentioned he was a new rider on the Wide Open team. We can now officially announce that Connor and Jay Barrett have been signed as 'Wide Open Development Riders' for the coming season!
"Wide Open is pleased to announce our "development" programme riders, Conor MacFarlane from Invercargill and Jay Barrett from Hastings. The development programme has been formed to give young talent the stepping stones to reach their full potential both in New Zealand and overseas.
Last year both Conor and Jay showed their potential with Conor winning a number of dirt jump comps and Jay having the 6th fastest time of the day at the Tauranga DH National.
Conor has just received his new Black Market Killswitch and Jay is awaiting the arrival of the new Turner DHR which is due to arrive in September.
Wide Open is really excited about supporting these two young rippers and believes they will both be stars of the future."
