Knolly is proud to announce our 2009 team roster. Joining our returning team members Ryan Berrecloth and Ross Measures are Riley McIntosh and Alan Crisp. Riley is an exceptional trail builder whose creations have been featured in numerous films. Look for Riley in some of the exciting film projects coming out this season. Alan is a positive ambassador for the sport both on and off the bike through his unbridled enthusiasm for all facets of the sport. Originally from Australia Alan now calls the North Shore home and tallied up some solid race results last season. Alan will be representing the Knolly team on the race circuit this season.

In addition to our pro team we have formalized our product development team and are welcoming Dustin Adams to the Knolly family. He will be joining our existing Product Development Team members and brings a wealth of knowledge and race experience to our team. Some career highlights include 2004 Norba DH 3rd place Overall, 2002 third overall in the Norba DH standings, 2002 4th at the Telluride World Cup, 2001 and 2002 Canada Cup Champion, and 1999 Overall Canada Cup Points Leader.
“Geeze… how long has it been? 4 years and here I am ready to throw my leg over the most influential machine in my life. No matter how hard I try to forget and move on, the cool feeling of roosting a berm, hitting a perfect cheese wedge, and of course racing the clock has sucked me back in! Over the past few years I was living in denial, thinking I could do without being involved somehow in the bicycle industry. After countless hours of battling with the inner demons and convincing myself I was done, well lets just say I am glad to be back helping in the best way I know how…. Perfection is something I have only seen a few times in my life, and when you reach perfection it feels like you are complete! When Chris contacted me and let me in on the future goals the Noel has for his dream DH rig, I was instantly impressed on how he wanted to achieve. The goals are great, make it right and make it the best it can be, before you send it out to the masses. So with the input I can offer and the engineering prowess that Noel has, we set out to achieve perfection for a rig that will help others reach their own goals of perfection.
Please watch for me out there this season testing and helping Knolly refine their already great designs, and hey you may even see me try and fit the odd race in too!!”
The Knolly Team will be utilizing the complete line of Knolly frames for all their endeavours this season. A huge thanks to our team sponsors and friends at Troy Lee Designs, Cane Creek, Race Face, Magura, MRP, Lizard Skins, Chromag and Sun Rims.
