Knolly Bikes is thrilled to have James Doerfling and Garett Buehler representing our brand again this season. After last season we developed a new team program to ensure James and Garett were in a position to build on their momentum and push their riding even further this season. For 2012 the team is excited to work with the following amazing companies: SR Suntour, Gravity Components, Joystick Bicycle Components, Mountain Racing Products (MRP), Alex Rims, Hayes Bicycle Components, KMC Chains, Lizard Skins, and Maxxis tires. We truly appreciate their support!
“It’s cool to be riding for brands who really support our vision, and give us the freedom to explore our creativity with Freeriding while having fun on our bikes. This year is going to be insane, full of adventures to some of the most badass big mountain zones around. Riding on a team with one of your best buddies, and the support from all the sponsors is a dream come true. We cannot wait to get busy shooting and pushing it on big mountain missions until the Red Bull Rampage Champ is crowned this fall. Stoked.”

Gravity Team Rider Casey Groves is featured on Pink Bike today. Check out this video of Casey getting rad even when winter tries to shut it down.
Casey’s credentials are undeniable and he’s proven himself over and over again. He has a resume longer than the travel on your DH bike and he is a top 10 rider on the world tour in 2010, a podium finisher at Crankworx Whistler, and a star in several feature films. Due to an injury last year Casey was unable to live up to his known potential, but now he is back to mint condition and ready to take on the freeride world. With training underway while many riders rest during the winter, Casey is committed to ensure he is up to compete against and with the best of the best. Check out this exclusive video showcasing Casey on his Morpheus Skyla.
