From all the amazing roster of riders that have represented us over the years to all the amazing sponsors that made everything possible for us, it’s been an amazing ride. Thanks to all the amazing staff we’ve worked with over the years at Chain Reaction, it’s been an honor to represent such an amazing company. We accomplished some amazing things beyond our wildest dreams when we started the team in 2007. The team started with an incredible second place finish in the first round of the 2008 Downhill World Cup in Maribor, Slovenia, and the success has continued from there. . Our time in the Downhill World Cup brought us individual and team victories and podiums, as well as British Downhill Series titles. Since focusing on the Enduro World Series, we have also racked up numerous wins and an incredible 4 world titles overall. It has been amazing to witness the global growth of Chain Reaction in this time. Truly amazing. “
