The Rockrider Racing Team has just made its presentation for 2023 and the truth is that it has been almost completely renewed. The signings of Italian Greta Seiwald, Frenchman Mathis Azzaro, US champion Savilla Blunk and Frenchwoman Olivia Onesti join Joshua Dubau and Emeline Detilleux.

The Rockrider Racing Team presents a new squad with Tempier on the technical staff and a full roster of promising signings

The retirement of Stephane Tempier at the end of last season opened up the possibility of new signings for the young Rockrider Racing Team, but after seeing the presentation for next year it seems that they have built a very talented team with a lot of potential.

The Frenchman Tempier, who was the team leader last year, will now be co-director of the team with Samuel Roces and will lead the new Decathlon team, which has made four new signings. 

From the BMC MTB Racing Team comes Frenchman Mathis Azzaro, a rider who will make the jump to the Elite World Cup category next year and who this season finished second in the Under-23 World Championships.

Italian Greta Seiwald comes to the Rockrider Racing Team from Santa Cruz FSA after her best season so far in 2022 and brilliant performances in some of the World Cup races.

Greta Seiwald had the best season of her career in 2022 even after a serious injury at the beginning of the year.

After winning the US XCO National Champion title in 2022 and coming close to making the podium at the last Snowshoe World Cup, Savilia Blunk will wear the colours of the Rockrider Racing Team in 2023 and could be one of the year's big revelations.

Savilia Blunk has been one of the surprises of 2022.

The latest signing is the very young Olivia Honesti. The 19-year-old Frenchwoman has shown that she is capable of being among the top 3 in an U23 World Cup or even winning an Elite race in the French Cup or coming second in another Elite race in the Catalan Cup.

At the age of 19, the Frenchwoman Honesti has already shown that her talent could have no limits.

Alongside the new additions, Frenchman Joshua Dubau and Belgian champion Detilleux will continue.

In terms of equipment, the team will continue to race with the new Rockrider 900 S full suspension and the Rockrider 900 hardtail version. Both are equipped with components from their technical partners, SRAM, Manitou, Mavic, Hutchinson and TRP, but the Rockrider Racing Team is joined by three new sponsors: Carbon Ti and FSA for components, and Julbo for helmets and glasses.

With this formation, the team hopes to continue to grow and establish itself as one of the strongest structures in the World Cup with Decathlon.
