Hunt, the brand best known for its wallet friendly but high-performance wheelsets, isn't shy of supporting excellent riders and nurturing young talent. Kicking off its list of fresh signings for 2024, the brand has welcomed the four-cross National Champ, 14-year-old Amelia Martin, to the roster.
Martin, despite her young age, is not a stranger to impressive achievements, which include the 2023 Dual Slalom National Champs title. She also more than showed off her skills on the downhill circuit finishing the latest season with a fourth overall. Her video of herself making one of the most jaw-dropping saves of the year has also caused a storm on Instagram.
“Since joining The Rider Firm, I've been keen to help promote up-and-coming riders, and I can't wait to see how we can help Amelia develop and keep racing through the coming season. I honestly think Amelia is one to watch!” Andi Sykes, Senior Marketing Manager, The Rider Firm, commented the signing.
In 2024, Martin will be riding on a set of Hunt's Enduro Wide V2 wheelsets as well as helping the brand's engineers develop future products, as the brand teases more cool kit coming to the market soon.
“I’m so stoked to be working with Hunt wheels next season. The wheels feel amazing and are super reliable which is just what I need for racing.
Next season I’m aiming to race the full British National Series with a goal of finishing top three overall. I’ll do some other races between, too.
I’m also hoping to do some filming to help raise the profile of mountain biking to more girls, and particularly those from ethnic minority backgrounds. I’d love to see more people of colour at races and I hope I can help make that happen," Martin said.
