Mondraker Unveils The First Piece Of Its 2024 Racing Team Puzzle

Mondraker has officially announced one of its team members for 2024 and it's none other than America's own Ryan Pinkerton. The four time U.S. national champion and Junior World Cup overall winner was due for a payday, but no one expected this.

Take a look at the announcement below.

Ryan has been making major waves on the Junior Worlds scene for a little while now and since it appears he is poised to be up next in Elites, when he departed GT it was big news.

This feels like the beginning of a long partnership and a new chapter for Mondraker as well. The Spanish manufacturer parted ways with its longtime team, MS Racing, at the end of the 2023 season and it was unclear what their next move would be.

Racing is in Mondraker's blood so it wasn't so much as whether they would field a World Cup team as it was who, out of the unprecedented amount of free agents, they would build a team around.

There was loads of speculation around Dakotah Norton and Aaron Gwin filling the space that MS left behind, and it is still entirely possible that it could happen. After all, it would make sense to have an entirely American team. In the meantime though, it is really cool to see Ryan moving up into the big leagues and getting the affirmation of a company like Mondraker seeing a promising future in him.
