Press Release

Intense Cycles is excited to announce the signing of Conor Macfarlane as part of their global athlete program. Based in Queenstown, New Zealand, Conor is well known for his exploits as a freeride athlete and also competes at select EWS Enduro, Crankworx World Tour and DH events such as the Loosefest series.

I’m stoked to be riding for a brand that has a history like Intense does, making some of the most progressive bikes out there, and helping out a bunch of athletes which were, and still are, household names within biking circles,” Macfarlane said about the news. ”Riding for Intense is coming full circle for me; my first DH bike was an Intense nine years ago, so it’s cool to go back to where it started. Talking about back where it started, I’m also stoked to be riding for a brand which Matt at Wide Open Distributors distributes into New Zealand. He is the first sponsor I got and I wouldn’t be where I am today without his help, so cheers.
