Distinguishing marks: The most international mountainbike team ever to exist

After having collaborated with international teams for several years, GHOST Bikes founded its own Factory-Racing Team in 2011 aimed at implementing creative collaboration between the manufacturer and athletes in the racing world.

This innovative project has materialised into a team made up of five young and highly talented female champions who work under the expert guidance of Tom Wickles. With an average age of 23, the athletes come from five different countries and it is this latter characteristic that makes the Ghost-Factory Racing Team the most international mountain-bike team in existence.

The team’s achievements so far confirm without a shadow of a doubt that trust and close collaboration are enough to make anything possible in the MTB universe. The ability to work towards a common goal is one factor that underpins the team’s success but other factors include their team spirit, strong relationship, sense of fair play and sportsmanship between competitors.

Moreover, while the athletes put their shoulder behind the wheel during the race, the “secret stars” work behind the scenes to boost their chances of victory. Everyone plays a vital role from mechanics and physiotherapists to team managers. And everyone gives their utmost even under pressure. That is how a team works.
