Posted by Editoress on 05/18/12
Outdoor Gear Canada (OGC) is proud to announce the roster for the Intense Canada downhill mountain bike team. The four-rider team from 2011 is returning for 2012 and is looking forward to building on its 2011 momentum.
Intense Canada riders will be racing on the Canadian national downhill mountain bike race circuit, in provincially sanctioned races and in select international races. This team of young riders has some impressive experience including that of Danice Uyesugi who took third place overall in the Canada Cup Series for Pro/Elite women in 2011.
Vaea Verbeeck returns to racing after her promising 2011 season was ended prematurely due to injury. Vaea is excited to be back on her bike again and is looking to build on her 2010 success when she won the Bromont Canada Cup. Vaea is now racing in the Senior Elite category
On the men’s side, Intense Canada riders Matt Beer and Dexter Robson are both keen to start racing this year and to build on their experience acquired in 2011. Matt brings with him seven years of racing and will compete in the Pro/Elite category this year. This will be Dexter’s first year racing in the Pro/Elite category and he is excited to get the season started.
According to OGC Marketing Manager, Sylvain Bossé, “We’re excited to see all four talented riders returning for 2012 and we anticipate a strong season from the Intense Canada downhill team.”
