Team profiles

Kye Forte
BMX legend, father of two and probably the most stylish man on the UK race circuit. Kye entered downhill after a career as a pro in BMX, we brought him onto the team, taught him to run less than 60psi in his tyres and he set about smoking the field!

Kye will ride a Large Nukeproof Mega and Large Nukeproof Pulse.
