In 2014 Trek Factory XC Racing shelled out utter domination, as they won their way to becoming the number 1 ranked UCI mountain bike team in the world. The team is home to Olympic athletes and World Cup Podium winners, Emily Batty & Bec Henderson, and Elite Men’s riders, Kohei Yamamoto, Dan McConnell and Sergio Mantecon. McConnell won the World Cup in Albstadt in 2013, with Mantecon taking second place. New to the team this year is the 2013 and 2014 Asian XC Champion, Yamamoto. He has his sights set on a top-10 overall World Cup ranking and the Japanese National Championships. Together as a team Trek Factory Racing again aim to demolish the competition for another year as they climb atop World Cup podiums.
