Saddleback has supported the new 2024 Intense Factory Racing Team, alongside some of our world famous brands, Tory Lee Designs and Feedback Sports.


last Weekend was the opening  of the British National Downhil Series, with the first of five rounds taking place in Rheola, Wales. Trecherous conditions in the days prior meant that final race runs were cancelled on the day, so final results were based off of the previous seeding run.


"In Sport, you need to get into a position so that, when your performance isn't 100%, you still deliver a result. That is exactly what Joe (bREEDEN) did this weekend! He would admit that his run wasn't his finest, so to come 2nd Behind the World Champion on an "average" run shows clear evidence of the speed we believe Joe has been showing throughout the winter." - Olly Morris, 1st Vets


"Encouraging weekend and happy with my speed, with a smooth run. The result has given me loads of confidence in our setup. Stoked on how everything is coming together and ready for our first world cup all together in Fort William." - Joe Breeden, 2nd Male Elite.
