Jim Dellavalle has rejoined Mountain Cycle for the 2006 BMX and Mountain Bike seasons.
"We are stoked to continue our relationship with Jim," said Mountain Cycle spokesperson Rob Linberg. "To us he is more than a sponsored pro rider with amazing skills, he's become a great Mountain Cycle ambassador. Dellavalle is also the kind of guy who keeps on pushing his limits and learning new skill. Constantly evolving his abilities while providing us with great feedback."
From Crankworx in Whistler to East Coast jump jams, Jim Dellavalle represented Mountain Cycle coast to coast during the 2005 season. In early December, Dellavalle even took his ShockWave 9.5 on a journey to Israel where he rode some incredible terrain, made many good friends and spread the Mountain Cycle word.
Jim's first stop in 2006 is January 27-28 at The Gathering dirt jump/skate park comp near Seattle, Washington. His next stop is at the Ray's 3Ride Pro Invitational on February 4th. Expect to see him at many more select events throughout 2006, including Crankworx. You may get a chance to hang out and ride with him at one of your favourite shops this year as he will be available for in-store, or better yet, at-jump, product demos. His 2006 quiver includes the ShockWave 9.5, the Rumble and the new Battery. Stay tuned to MountainCycle.com for details on everything from the team to new products.
