Propain Factory Racing - 2020 Team LineUp
Proud to announce the new line-up for our Propain Factory Racing Team!
For 2020 we look for a team to represent us and in search for the top, we look to the very bottom of the globe to a couple of wild men; adding New Zealand’s George Brannigan and Australia’s Luke Meier-Smith who will join Luke Williamson and Henry Kerr for a two junior / two elite team. All under the management of former World Cup DH racer Ben Reid.
We are over the moon here at Propain with our lineup for 2020: Henry Kerr is moving into his 4th season with the team and although his first year as an elite was no reflection on his impressive junior results when he took 2nd overall in the World Cup series and won the British series, we believe in Henry’s ability and know he is training hard to make it in the elite ranks. While Luke Williamson’s 2019 World Cup results didn’t reflect what he is capable of, now with his first year on the World Cup circuit behind him, we look forward to Luke feeling more at ease and watching his true ability and speed coming out on the track.
Welcoming our two new riders we cannot be happier having George Brannigan and Luke Meier-Smith on board. Luke impressed us from early 2019 when he posted a 4th place at his first-ever World Cup in Fort William, Scotland. From then, Bike from Vee Tire Co first hooked Luke up with tires and really brought him to our attention. Although we didn’t have space on our factory team at the time, we gave him a bike and with nothing but the support from his parents, Mal and Tanja, Luke went on to finish the season strong with a 2nd place at the World Cup finals. We had built a great relationship with Luke and his parents and knew he was destined to be onboard with us during 2020.
