Mondraker Bikes is pleased to announce the addition of Elite World Cup DH racer Oli Burton who joins the sponsorship program for 2013.

Burton has been completing on the World Cup circuit for the past three years and proved his place as one of the UK's top racers with a 27th place finish in Pietermartizburg, South Africa last season as well as strong podium finishes at UK national rounds. With a full winter of training under his belt Olie is confident he can keep improving on his results and with a full World Cups and UK domestic schedule ahead he will be looking for some strong finishes in 2013.

Olie will be riding both the Mondraker Summum Pro Team for downhill events and the Foxy XR for all enduro and trail riding. Both bikes feature revolutionary Forward Geometry and will be finished with parts from Formula and e*thirteen giving him the perfect tools for the season which kicks off this weekend with round 1 of the British Downhill Series at Combe Sydenham, Somerset.

Here is the full press release from Olie.

After a great 2012 season I took a few weeks off riding and spent some time with my family and friends and hit the slopes before getting back in to the gym and sitting down at the computer to get started on organize things for this starting season. Things have come together really nicely this year, I have some great new sponsors onboard and I can't wait to get racing again this weekend at BDS round 1 at Combe Sydenham.

This year I am lucky enough to be able to team up with Performax¨ Sports. They specialize in a sports range of vitamins, drinks and bars from UK based Higher Nature¨ The company has a long-standing track record as pioneers in nutrition and the Performax¨ Sports range is the latest addition to its extensive portfolio. I am very confident that their products will assist me in reaching the highest level of performance. Higher Nature understands the importance of nutrition in an athlete's regime too and I will be able to work closely with their nutrition team, providing me with a tailored programme to follow both on and off the track.

The biggest bike change for me this year is riding a new frame. Being on Mondraker bikes this year represents a fresh start for me and I'm looking forward to a great future racing on the SummumDH. I have been riding this new bike for a couple of months now and I feel really comfortable on it already. I really like how stable the bike feels and works. Having the adjustability in the frame really allows me to get the bike perfectly set up for me

I want to make the most of all these new opportunities and the great setup and support this year to get where I want to be. I have had an awesome winter and look forward to a successful racing year ahead.

Olie has recently been training in Spain. Here is his first helmet cam video of the season, which includes Olie's training with Elite racers Joe Smith and Rich Thomas in the sun.
