On saturday Tim mentioned that there was a french rider riding for the Alpinestar team called jean christophe savignoni .


Most AS distributors supported riders. Jean Christophe rode for french distributor.

+1 for compiling this - superb effort.

To this day, my old A* Al-Mega XT remains the best climbing MTB that I ever had. The curved seat tube allowing the front wheel to be so far forward allowed me out-of-the-saddle traction that was the envy of my mates.

I've beeen in email contact with both Malcolm and Joel Smith. Malcolm has informed me that he sold MS Racing just before the brand launched their mtb range, he does however own one of the MS Racing bikes.

I contacted Joel through Tomac Cycles, the company he owns and manages. He knew little about the bikes but was very exicted by this thread and the MS Racing brands history in mountain biking.

Watch this space for updates.
