New Pro Team Members

The world-class freeride mountain biker Darren “The Claw” Berrecloth, of BC, Canada, specializes in big mountain lines and boasts a mighty display of trophies. After winning third place at the Red Bull Rampage in 2002, the professional mountain biker achieved international recognition and has since been lauded as one of the best in the freeriding circuit.

Florian Neuschwander is a force to be reckoned with on the German running circuit. First at the TransRockies Run, and the Wings for Life World Run, gained him accolades and respect in the running world. 

One of the best mushers in the world, Silvia Furtwängler is a German native lives with her family and 43 huskies on an isolated Norwegian plateau, where she trains. Last year she participated in the Volga Quest, an extremely demanding race that spans over 500 km through Russia. The only woman on an eight-person expedition, she secured victory as the last-standing musher.
