In 2004 cycling enthusiasts Will Cooper and Paul Beales had a vision to change the face of mountain biking in Britain and across the Globe, and for the team to achieve world-class status.
Ten years on, and with a string of successes under our belt, what was once a far-off dream has become a reality.
Now the journey continues with the ambition to become the World’s number one professional bike team by the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Sharing our vision, enthusiasm and commitment, are headline sponsors Silverback Bikes and Paarl Media, whose backing will support the team on the road to Rio and far beyond.
In 2014 the team continued to make an impression on the World stage and achieved its highest ever World ranking. This, and the nine previous seasons of graft, success and experience leads us to 2015 and the biggest change yet for the team.
As of 1st January we are rebranding as Paarl Media OMX Pro Team.
New signings, new staff, new sponsors and a new goal but with all the same passion and commitment to the sport that has seen us get to this point.
It has been, and will continue to be, an amazing journey. So please do join us – at races, through social media and our website – as we head towards Tokyo 2020.
Welcome aboard. #weareOMX
