Meet the 2018 Madison Saracen Downhill Team

11 Jan

A new year means we get to look forward to a new UCI Downhill season, and boy it’s looking like a good one. The calendar will see the much-awaited re-introduction of La Bresse to the tour, as well as a new face in this year’s season opener: Lošinj, Croatia.

Talking about new faces, the Madison Saracen team is getting a new one too! As we say goodbye to both Marc Beaumont and Matt Simmonds, the team is welcoming one of the most iconic downhill racers of our time: Danny Hart.

You only have to watch Danny’s 2011 World Champs run from Champéry to understand why the then 20-year-old from Redcar was announced as a major player on the world stage.

"I’m really happy to be joining the Madison Saracen Factory Team, as I’ve watched the team grow and prosper over the last decade” he said. “The success they’ve had over the last few years shows that this team is in the top tier of DH racing teams. It’s going to be an exciting few years!"

That’s not all. After winning the 2017 Junior World Championship title in his final year in the category, Matt Walker is moving up into Elite and will be joining Danny Hart and Alex Marin on the big stage.

We look forward to seeing these three super talented downhill racers take it to the tracks. Follow their adventures at mattwalkerdh, alex3marin, dannyhart1 and madisonsaracen.
