This week at Sea Otter Intense Cycles has a variety of things they’re announcing. Today they revealed their JrX team that Palmer will be leading. In addition to that, Palmer also showed off a limited edition Palmer M16 downhill bike that features an awesome paintjob.
Palmer introduced his JrX team to everyone at Sea Otter this afternoon. Riders include Nikolas Nesteroff , Blake Motley, Warren Niss, Josh Gibb, and Steven Walton.
Three of them are from SoCal, one from Santa Cruz, and one from Washington. Three of them are 15, one 16, and one 17 year old. They’ll be racing JrX Dual Slalom and Downhill.
As for training, they’re planning to work with Randy Lawrence who has experience in moto. Eventually they all want to race world cups.
Palmer also showed off a custom Intense M16 downhill bike that will be available in limited numbers. The custom paint job takes quite a bit of time (40hrs for the first one) so these won’t come cheap!
