“I’m really looking forward to riding for ChainReactionCycles-Intense in 2008,” Said Ruaridh Cunningham, “It’s a big step up to elite for me next year so I’m stoked to be riding a good bike for a high profile team in my first year of racing professionally. I’m looking forward to racing alongside my new team mates and I’m sure it will be an awesome year.”
During the season the ChainReactionCycles-Intense Racing Team will be based just outside Morzine. The riders will have their own chalet as a base (care of between races which will be great for training when they have any time off from the busy race schedule. This will also be a great place for any team photo shoots and testing new products on the bikes.
