Rising British enduro talent Dan Mundell has signed a two-year contract with Sherco to contest the Enduro World Championship.
For 2018 he will contest the 125cc Youth Cup with direct support from Azzalin CH Sherco Factory Team and then move up to Enduro Junior for 2019.
He will ride for Malcolm Rathmell Sport Ltd at domestic level.
It’s been a heck of a season for Mundell and now ending it with a move to Sherco is the icing on the cake.
“I'm really looking forward to being able to compete in the full EnduroGP series,” told Mundell.
“My goal is to be world champion. I think I am in the best position possible to do so this season and after only a couple of days testing on the bike, I'm certain I've got the best machinery for the job.”
Eighteen year old Mundell first caught our eye when he contacted us for a feature in Local Focus back in January.
Since then it’s been a rapid rise for him and one that’s been great to watch.
Going on to win the British 125cc enduro title, in his first year at Championship level, he also claimed race wins in the European and Enduro World Championship 125cc categories.
The standout week for him was representing Britain on the Junior ISDE Trophy team in France.
Despite a lack of international experience, he measured well against the world’s elite carding a head-turning 12th overall and fourth in E1 on day three.
For 2018 and 2019, Mundell will ride under the Sherco Factory Official awning in conjunction with Sherco Racing UK importers Malcolm Rathmell Sport Ltd.
In 2018, he will race Sherco’s new 125 SE-R in the Youth Class with Azzalin CH Sherco Factory Team before moving to the Enduro Junior category for 2019.
