Here at Silverfish UK, we're proud to be associated with the Mountain Trax - Vauxhall Cycling Team. Team Manager and National MTB Marathon Champion, Ben Thomas will be piloting a Turner Czar in the 2016 season. Ben says....

"When I first contacted Turner Bikes founder David Turner there was an immediate interest and understanding between us. David understood the demands of racing and issues of finding sponsorship following his own time as a professional racer. David has the motivation and product needed to support Mountain Trax – Vauxhall Cycling. Welcome Turner Bikes!"

Turner’s Czar continues the brands track record of producing national-championship winning race bikes with a feel of refinement and effortless handling. Although designed as a XC race / marathon bike, the Czar also chews up fast, twisty single track. The versatile nature of the Czar is capable of taking on more demanding trails than typical XC race courses offer. "This design philosophy is perfect for the hard mountain terrain I’ll encounter this year whilst racing the UCI World Marathon Series and UCI stage races. I’m looking for a bike that can offer a performance advantage and reliability; the Czar is not just the ideal bike but a dream bike."

David Turner has been at the forefront of MTB suspension since the technology's inception in the 1980's. As a professional racer, David helped designers at Rock Shox, Mongoose and AMP Research race-test and fine-tune early advancements in suspension design. After retiring from full-time competition, David worked with legendary design guru Horst Leitner to create some of the most progressive and lightweight suspension bicycle frames and forks the sport had ever seen. Knowing how a full-suspension mountain bike should ride, David looked to the Industry and could not find any viable solution and as a result the vision of Turner Suspension Bicycles was born.

In 1994, David Turner entered the bicycle market with high-performance frames bearing his own name. Turner suspension frames quickly earned a winning reputation by delivering levels of performance, pedalling efficiency and reliability few riders had ever experienced. Numerous NORBA, World Cup and UCI Championships have been won on Turner frames, often relabelled by other bike companies to be ridden by their professional riders.

"This sponsorship deal will bring Turner Bikes to the front of UK and international races once again"
