Cairns, Australia – 13th of September 2017 – Öhlins and Specialized Gravity wrote mountain bike history together. Team Specialized Gravity riders Miranda Miller from Canada and Loic Bruni from France took the coveted crowns in Downhill biking at the World Championships held in Cairns, Australia last Sunday.
Torkel Sintorn, Öhlins MTB Manager said,
“Cooperation with the Specialized Gravity team started one year ago. Technicians and Engineers, on both sides, have worked very hard to reach the level of producing the World’s best Downhill products. This partnership with one of the best racing teams and their top athletes has given us an incredible amount of information and knowledge. We are very happy to work with Specialized Gravity as their fantastic results together with a great attitude has given us a huge motivation to work even harder”.
“One week earlier Canadian Finn Iles secured the Junior World Cup while French Öhlins Service Centre “Pit Stop”, supported rider, Mélanie Chappaz, took the World Championship title in the Junior women class. What an insane year!”, Sintorn summarised.
