8 April, 2011 – MOMSEN BIKES is pleased to announce its sponsorship and support of New Zealand’s Chris Birch.
Birch is no stranger to Africa, having won 3 consecutive ROOF OF AFRICA Enduros ( 1 of only 3 people to ever achieve the result ) and recently relocated to South Africa for the 2011 racing season.
Apart from his racing duties, Chris is also actively involved in Offroad Motorcycle Training Clinics around the country. Chris focuses on helping his clients get the most out of their riding – whether this is to improve performance and placing in competition, to beat their mates, or simply to get the most enjoyment from the weekend’s riding.
For 2011, whilst living and racing in South Africa, Chris will be training on MOMSEN BIKES and currently rides and trains on an AL329 , a mid-priced 29er model that any keen enduro/offroad rider could purchase from their local MOMSEN BIKES stockist.*
What many may not know, but most likely suspect, Chris’s background involves quite alot of cycling and is a previous National Champion Downhill racer and Bicycle Trials Champion in his native New Zealand.
“As an avid Enduro rider myself, I have the utmost respect for Chris’s skills on a motorcycle and feel that the combination of his dedication and passion towards his profession as well as his silky smooth riding style on all things 2-wheeled make him an ideal brand ambassador for MOMSEN BIKES “ said brand owner and founder, Victor Momsen.
Many of the world’s top motorcycle racers and sportsmen are using cycling as a means to keep fit and train for their respective disciplines. Mountain Biking is one of the most natural training exercises for enduro/offroad riders to participate in and yet still enjoy.
The sport of Mountain Biking has experienced incredible growth over the past 2 years in South Africa, partly due to the excellent riding terrain and also the numerous world-class cycle events being staged in South Africa.
MOMSEN BIKES looks forward to a long and mutually beneficial association with Chris Birch.
