Brendan Fairclough will join Dean Lucas, Flo Payet and Marine Cabirou on the newly-formed Scott DH Factory Team with an all-new Gambler.
Out of the ashes of the Velosolutions fire rises the Scott DH Factory Team.
The team will racing the new Scott Gambler and made up of Aussie pinner Dean Lucas, Reunion Island’s tallest man Flo Payet and rising World Cup podium threat Marine Cabirou.
Interestingly, Brendan’s place on the team isn’t quite the same as it has been in previous years. Brendan will race alongside the team and will share their pits at World Cups but won’t strictly be part of the team.
For 2019, he’s chosen to more of his own thing and will have his own mechanics at World Cups and his own line up of sponsors. The change of set up, we’re told, to allow Brendan to work on more of his own projects and create more collaborations with sponsors. We’re excited to see what he’s got planned.
The team will be racing on a refined, slimmed-down version of the prototype Gambler Brendan and former team mate Gaetan Vige raced last season.
