After a successful 3 years on the World Cup Circuit, Solid Reverse Factory Racing sees some exciting changes for 2017, continuing their commitment to developing and supporting talented riders who are breaking into the World Cup scene.
Bad Wildbad, a notorious Downhill track in the heart of the Black Forest, brings Solid Reverse Factory racing back to where it all started. 3 riders, all from within 2 hours of the Solid / Reverse Headquarters- form the DH racing team that will compete in German national rounds, IXS Cup and World Cup events.
