After keeping her fans guessing for months during this off-season, Katy Winton has confirmed that she has set up her own new privateer Enduro World Series entry under the banner of Moxie XI. The Scottish rider who finished the Bluegrass EWS Finale Ligure 2020 in fourth place will campaign a Nukeproof Giga for the 2021 season.
Watch Katy’s run to that superb Bluegrass EWS Finale Ligure finish, here:
Winton’s highest placing at an EWS race was a second place finish at the fourth round of the 2017 series in Carrick, Co. Wicklow. She would finish that season third in the overall behind Isabeau Courdurier and Cecile Ravanel before placing third in the overall again in 2018.
Katy will be riding a size small Nukeproof Giga, the latest heavy-hitting ‘super enduro’ bike from the brand that backs three-time EWS Champion, Sam Hill. The bike is virtually cable-free thanks to SRAM’s X01 Eagle AXS groupset and rolls on a combination of Zipp’s latest carbon fibre wheelset and Michelin’s Wild Enduro/DH 34 rubber. Crank Brothers are providing the pedals whilst Troy Lee Designs are helping Katy with race kit.
