About MS Mondraker Team
MS Mondraker is a professional Elite UCI downhill (DH) mountain bike (MTB) team. The initials ‘MS’ stand for Markus Stoeckl, who is a former DH racer and the current world record holder of the high-speed record on mountain bikes. Based on his experience of racing World Cups, he found his own vision of how the sport should look. Thus, the MS-RACING programme was born, marking the beginning of the implementation of MS’s vision.
The original MS-RACING team was founded by Markus Stoeckl and Lukas Haider in 2004 to support semi-professional athletes. Within two years MS-RACING grew from a semi-pro race team to one of the most important UCI trade teams in the MTB race circuit.
The team has enjoyed a lot of success in the professional sphere since its inception: winning the Four-Cross Team World Cup title in 2008; dominating the 2016 UCI DH World Cup with the overall team victory and taking 1st and 2nd places in the 2016 DH World Championships; and taking the win in the 2019 UCI DH World Cup in Val di Sole.
