2017 Kovarik Racing Magura Rider Development Team

This year Magura joins Intense Cycles in helping us to support some young up and coming DH athletes as coaches, mentors and friends.

For 2017, we have brought on board Ben Wallace and Kendall McLean who will be racing in the competitive category of Junior Expert Men. Seth Sherlock will be stepping up to U17 Expert Men and Piper Allman will now be in the Junior Women category.

It is a privilege to both watch and help these riders rise up through the ranks. Our team will hit the road to all of the BC Cups this year looking to learn, progress, gain experience and confidence. And have fun while doing it!

We would like to thank these amazing brands for supporting this project:

Welcome to the team!

Ben Wallace has combined serious talent, hard work and loads of heart to become one of the fastest up and coming juniors in Canada. We are excited to be backing Ben in reaching his goals. Keep your eye out for this kid at the provincial, national and international level this year.

Welcome to the team!

Kendall McLean showed some serious speed last season, despite coming back from injury. His times in U17 Expert Men had him not far behind the fastest Pros. We are very stoked to have him on board with us this year and to continue watching him grow as an athlete. His attitude and maturity seem beyond his years and we believe this will translate to success in both sport and living life!
