Australian DH and 4X star Chris Kovarik has signed for MS-Intense Factory-Racing for the 2006/2007 seasons. After a couple of top results in his comeback season in 2005, Kovarik is aiming for the top three in overall UCI world cup and the UCI world championships. He will join his Swiss teammate Claudio Caluori and the Australian newcomer Darren Pokoj to represent MS-Intense Factory-Racing at all UCI world cups, the European IXS series and chosen international events like the Sea Otter Classics or the Crankworx Festival.
Beside the international riders, the Austrian athletes Petra Bernhard, Mathias Haas and Georg Engel complete the team with main focus on European events.
"We are very lucky about the actual team structure and the development of MS-Racing," commented team manager Lukas Haider. "The closer cooperation with Intense cycles and the engagement of C.K. are further steps on the way to realise the vision of the MS-Racing founder Markus Stoeckl of an ideal working mountain bike racing team."
