Tire manufacturer Kenda and bicycle manufacturer Tomac have teamed up to sponsor the new Kenda Tomac Mountain Bike Racing squad, an international downhill and four cross team featuring Filip Polc (Slovakia) and Mitch Delfs (Australia).
"To have Filip Polc and Mitch Delfs in our squad is a perfect mix," said Team Manager Peter Siulczynski. Polc is a proven talent while Delfs is working his way up and will have a chance to learn from the more experienced Polc.
"I'm happy to join the Kenda Tomac team. New season, new bike and new team-mate I can say it's going to be a great year. I am focusing especially on downhill where I want to step up and show what is in me!" said Polc enthusiastically.
Delfs is looking forward to his first chance to do a full World Cup season. "I can concentrate on racing and achieving my goals of making an impact at a World Cup level. Its awesome opportunity to ride with Filip who has such a good experience at racing. I am looking forward to hitting the season hard."
The racers will be crewed by Peter Siulczynski (Team Manager), Michal Kozak (Assistant Team Manager), Jean-Philippe Simard (Team Mechanic), Gary Perkin (Team Photographer) and John Lawlor (Team Videographer).
The team has a busy race schedule planned including all the World Cups, the World Championships and several major European and American events.
