Banshee Bikes UK signs Simon Parsons

May 2nd, 2013

By Factory Jackson in Features


Banshee Bikes’ UK distributor, Ison Distribution, has announced the signing of Simon Parsons, who will also be supported by MRP chain guides and Halo Wheels. Simon already lists Renthal Cycle Products, One Industries Europe and Biketart as current sponsors, so the addition of Banshee, Halo, and MRP will certainly set him up for the season. Simon has a busy season ahead of him, racing all BDS and Pearce Downhill races in the Expert class with selected Downhill World Cups and selected 4x races. As far as fresh race whips are concerned, Simon will be piloting a few models from the 2013 Banshee range, but primarily the Legend Mk2 for Downhill events, the 140mm travel Spitfire for All-Mountain/Enduro usage as well as an Amp hardtail for 4X duties. Good luck!
