Pro shredder Wayne Goss to its factory team resigned with Race Face Components, Inc. for another two years.

"We're ecstatic to have Wayne on board for another two years," said Race Face’s Julian Coffey. "We've had a long and successful association with Wayne and it's been very satisfying to see him develop into one of the sport's premiere athletes. All of us are looking forward to what the future holds for him."

Race Face originally signed Goss in August 2004, after his convincing UFC win. Shortly thereafter, he penned long term deals with Cannondale and the Cut team. Goss has appeared in Freeride Entertainment's New World Disorder series and finished ninth at Qashqai Madrid last year.
