We are very excited to welcome Ruaridh Cunningham to the Alpine Bikes Racing team for 2012!

Ruaridh, a former Junior World Downhill Champion currently ranked 33rd in the World at Elite level, will join XC racer Rab Wardell on the new team formed this year under major sponsors Alpine Bikes.

Ruaridh is based in the Scottish Borders and will ride the SDA Series, remaining BDS races and remaining World Cups in 2012. He will be racing on a 2012 Trek Session 9.9 supplied by Alpine Bikes and is also sponsored by POC (clothing and protection) and Burgtec (components).

Bryan Shedden, Director of Alpine Bikes, caught up with Ruaridh at the Saturday practice session before the first round of the 2012 SDA Series at Innerleithen last weekend, finding out about Ruaridh's plans and goals for the 2012 season, and to get his thoughts on his new bike.
