Although Neko Mulally has left the team to start creating his own bikes, Dakotah Norton ensures the team’s USDH presence remains strong. Dakotah is the reigning US Champion and a regular on the top step of the podium in the US ProGRT and Downhill South East series. He also knows the top 10 in the World Cup. In the 2021 season, he battled his way to three top-ten finishes, just missing out on a podium spot at Snowshoe.
Joe Breeden has ridden for Intense in the past on the Saddleback-backed UK team and qualified first in Val di Sole on one of his frames. He leaves the UR team where he picked up a 10th at Lousa 2020, another 10th at Les Gets 2021 and a win at the Psychose downhill.
The rest of the team remains unchanged with Aaron Gwin at the helm and Seth Sherlock continuing his partnership with Intense that he has had since he was 13 years old. The team will continue to develop the M279 bike with “new changes and special adjustments” expected for 2022 Seth and Joe will also be racing select EWS events on the Tracer.
