Team Animal rider Steve Geall has signed up to ride Mongoose for the coming season

Geall goes with Mongoose

Geall will remain on the Animal team but will change his machinery and will now promote both Animal and Mongoose on a full time basis.

"Steve will perform car jumps over some of Team Animal’s Mitsubishi 4 x 4’s and work with other members of the team on various demos as well as all the usual stuff that has made him one of the UK’s most popular riders," said Russell Merry of Mongoose importer, Hot Wheels.

"We have made significant strides in establishing Mongoose as the dominant brand in the BMX market, but we realise that we must raise our profile in the adult market to continue to grow our business, Steve will help us do this. We know the bikes are great and our relationship with Steve and Animal will help us realise the full potential of the Mongoose brand."
