COVE BIKES announces 2010 Factory Team powered by SRAM
NORTH VANCOUVER – Cove Bikes is proud to announce its 2010 Factory Team in partnership with SRAM. Once again Cove has fielded some of Canada’s best established and emerging talents set on making their mark on the world stage.
Eric Lawrenuk – watch for him getting rowdy.
Returning for a third year is Slopestyle rider Eric Lawrenuk. 2009 saw Eric take top spot at Goatstyle in Creston BC earning him a trip to Crankworks in Whistler where he narrowly missed qualifying for the big show. Eric also had a standout movie section in Aaron Laroques film “Whats Next”. Watch out for Eric getting rowdy all over the globe at Slopestyle and Dirtjump competitions this season. Eric is also supported by Geax and Smith Optics. Be sure to keep up with him on the Sombrio blog at sombriohappenings.com/blog
Ben Boyko back to his roots.
Returning to the program is Ben Boyko. A proven slopestyle competitor Ben will be focusing more on print and film projects this season. This partnership has already been a huge asset to Cove in terms of media coverage and product feedback. Also continuing their support for Ben are FSA Gravity Components, Mavic and Rockstar Energy.
Jamie Biluk is already involved in developing the 2011 Shocker along with R+D Manager Brian Kelly.
Continuing its passion for gravity racing Cove is excited to have Jamie Biluk back on board for 2010.
