We’re proud to announce that Garry Millburn, one of Australia’s premier Cyclocross racers, will wear our apparel for the 2016 season.
Garry has a long and esteemed history in the sport, representing Australia at multiple Cyclocross World Championships, and was crowned Australian CX Rider of the Year in 2015.
"Im stoked to be partnering with MAAP for the upcoming season. The guys have some killer new designs coming out, not to mention the technical aspects of the fit and material makes this kit red hot! We have some big things in the pipeline and I'm excited to be a part of the the fastest growing and raddest label in Australia." - Garry Millburn.
The move to have Garry wearing MAAP signals the brand’s intention to become more involved in the cyclocross community. “We’ve gained so much good feedback from the racers on the State of Matter MAAP Racing Team, and we wanted to get that same elite level insight in cyclocross. Garry is the perfect fit for our brand” - Jarrad Lory, MAAP co-founder.
Garry will be riding a custom built Speedvagen, hand built in Portland, Oregon by The Vanilla Workshop. "The ride of the Speedvagen Cyclocross bike is very direct and confidence inspiring. The level of comfort is something that you do not get from a carbon fibre bike. It really has a nice feel through the handlebars; it’s something I don’t know how to explain, but it feels really good".
