The Modeco MTB Team was established by Rawlplug employees at the beginning of 2015 as part of the Modeco Challenge. It is a wonderful example of the power of sport, connecting people regardless of their abilities, characters or ambitions.
Meet the Modeco MTB Team
The Modeco MTB Team consists of fourteen amateurs, for whom mountain biking is not only a way to spend their free time, but also a passion. As a result, the team caters for everyone - from those who are just starting their adventure with MTB to more experienced riders. Team members are united by a passion for fun and a desire to test themselves in the fiercely competitive world of mountain biking. The team is a perfect illustration of how professional relationships and sporting spirit can work hand in hand, connected in this case by a shared love of mountain biking.
The Modeco MTB Team has had an extremely busy 2015. The team took part in competition for the first time on April 18th, with the beginning of the Bike Marathon series. During the season they also had opportunity to race in additional events in Poland, the Czech Republic and France.
