As many of you know poisonfrog promotions started out a little DH team last year, and this year we are looking to expand a little bit.
What we need is one more pro, or stupid fast JRX man or women based in ontario or quebec preferably. Canada Cup, Crank works Ontario and Quebec cups and some bigger US events is where we will be. Yes we will be there to support you.
Here is what we are offering you. Not to mention that you get to ride on a team that is stuffed with good folks that are a blast to hang, race and train with.
First and foremost, you get a frame from Banhsee. The legend MK1 is their new DH race bike and you will be a test pilot for it! Major resume builder. More info here http://bansheebikes.blogspot.com/search/label/Legend
Beer, yes you need to be hydrated, and we have a beer sponsor, not crappy beer either. In fact we have many sponsors this year that are offering lots for our team!
