A day with the Madison Saracen Team
Back in August we ran a Facebook competition to win the chance to ride with the Madison Saracen downhill mountain bike team. Last weekend saw our 3 winners and their buddies do just that.
Our friends at Madison put on a cracking day for the guys, with Pedal a Bike Away hosting the team and our winners, Fly Up ferrying the riders up to the top and the Madison Saracen Factory Race Team being super accommodating and inspiring to all.
It’s probably best you hear about the team’s antics direct from the winners.
“It was the perfect day; the weather, the company, the hotel, the uplift (slick operation), the trails, the Animal freebies and of course the team. I was apprehensive about riding with world class riders but it genuinely felt like riding with a crew of good mates”
“I was excited about riding with the Saracen team but didn't expect the VIP treatment! The information and planning was first class and I wasn't expecting a hotel, breakfast, lunch and finishing the day with presents! The team were fun, relaxed and gave me confidence in my riding.” Dave Warren
“An amazing experience, Adam and I had the best day! The riders where beyond unbelievable, we had great fun and loads of laughs! I'd like to thank Animal for the awesome opportunity and hope one day we could do it all again. Thanks again to everyone involved.” Sean Stonelake
