Commencal have started their hunt for the next Myriam Nicole, Remi Thirion, Kyle Strait and Amaury Pierrion with the launch of their Junior Cartel Programme.
With both US and European Junior Cartel Programmes, Commencal have started their attempt to find the next big thing in mountain biking.
Commencal Junior Cartel is a fun first – teamwork makes the dream work – bikes rule grassroots program to help build young athletes and prepare them for World Cup downhill dominance, on and off track success, and personal growth opportunities otherwise not available.
What we are looking for:
Positive attitude, playful, high five throwing, wide-open shredders spread across the USA and Europe. We want downhill oriented riders who feel the need for speed and the desire to improve and become the best riders and racer+s they can be.
Chosen riders will be expected to compete in mandatory big races of their regions. They are expected to help encourage teammates with air or virtual high-fives and to provide smiles in the community while producing awesome social media content and spreading positive brand awareness.
We’ve split the support between two zones, Europe and USA, relying on the Commencal headquarters on these two continents to provide a professional framework and logistical support.
We’re looking for young race oriented shredders aged 14-18 yrs.
Attendance that will be expected:
2 National PRO GRT appearances
US Nationals in Snowshoe, WV
Team Camp in Winterpark, Colorado
We’re looking for young race oriented shredders aged 8-16 yrs.
