British Champs Rider Bio - The Superior-Brentjens Boys

They're the the Scottish duo who ride for the Superior Brentjens team and are supported by British Cycling. Many years ago they both started out at the SXC races as a wee lads slogging it out around the Sprogs race. A decade later and they are two of top male mountain bikers in Britain who regularly put on a fantastic show with consistently high results in the World Cup races. We here in Scotland are already so proud of them both and all their achievements, however we can't wait to see them racing in the Elite men's category, where the biggest names in British mountain biking will all be racing their hardest to get their hands on the Champions jersey. Both boys will be in the white, red and black kit of the team, make sure and cheer them on. They take part in the last race of the day which will kick off at 3pm at Cathkin Braes and will also complete the most laps of any race category over the whole weekend. 

Go on boys!! Good luck!
