Stan’s-Pivot Pro Team p/b Maxxis keeps partnerships through to 2020

The Stan’s-Pivot Pro Team p/b Maxxis has doubled its roster and signings with Stan’s NoTubes, Pivot Cycles and Maxxis through to 2020.

New racers Keegan Swenson and Sofia Gomez-Villafañe will join returning riders Rose Grant and Chloe Woodruff. The team of four will tag-team an international and domestic racing schedule that includes a wide range of events such as the Andalucia Bike Race, the UCI MTB World Cup, Sea Otter Classic, Cactus Cup, and the Epic Rides Off-Road Series.

“When we founded the team in 2015 with Stan’s NoTubes, we started thinking about how we could build a sustainable and racer-focused program. We’ve had three incredible seasons as a team but we’re constantly evaluating how we could do better,” Woodruff said. “Adding Keegan and Sofia will let us divide and conquer and remove some pressure off any single racer. And they’re just awesome people.”

The team will race on the Pivot Mach 429SL, LES, Mach 4 Carbon and LES 27.5 frames with Stan’s wheelsets and Race Sealant. Maxxis will supply tyres. The bikes will be outfitted with Shimano XTR DI2, FOX suspension and seatposts, Stages Cycling power meters and Dash GPS head units. Handlebars, stems, saddles, and bottle cages will be PRO Components with ESI Grips. Other sponsors include Kask,, Osprey Packs, Feedback Sports, ASSOS, KOO, GU Energy, and Natural Delights Medjool dates.
