WELCOME TO THE DMR TEAM: JONO JONES
We are proud to announce that Jono Jones will be joining the Deakinator on the DMR bikes team roster for 2017.
Jono grew up riding Woburn sands in Milton Keynes with his twin brother, and fellow pro-rider; Matt Jones. Whilst Matt chose slopestyle Jono raced World cup DH and competed all around the globe.
Jono's race pedigree mixed with a killer style on a bike makes him one of the most fun riders to watch. Big gaps, blown up turns and HUGE flat landings are what turned heads here at DMR.
We are excited to see what he can do onboard the SLED as he travels around the world. YEAH JONO!
Jono Jones: "After many years of racing all over the world I took take a step back from competing seriously and decided to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering...
I'm now in my final year and looking ahead to getting way more riding and racing under my belt once I graduate...
I was so stoked to get a call from Olly at DMR last year about their new 160mm trail bike and what my plans are for 2017 and beyond...
I’ve just got back from a trail ride and I could not be happier with the set up I've got...
The SLED is an all time bike and the team of guys behind it are amazing. Bring on 2017!”
As well as racing at all the Crankworx events Jono will be entering select Enduro races including 'The Ex' and 'Ard rock Enduro'.
He will be racing the Mega Avalanche and is aiming to compete in a few World Cup DH rounds too.
On top of this you can expect Jono to be featuring heavily on his teammates (THE Deakinator) edits from the events they attend.
