DFT United Team

We are stoked to announce our newly rebranded team, DFT United.

GHY Bikes is no longer in the team name but will very much continue on as a very strong supporter of the team and riders. In addition to rebranding, the team will be branching out from solely DH-focused races to include a roster of riders that will race both DH and Enduros over the course of the season. Stepping things up to the next level, the team now includes an EWS Development Team featuring Elite Pro, Kent Billingsley, and U21 rider, Josh Gibb.


Having the DFT United riders branching out and getting involved in enduros really isn’t all that surprising, and it happened organically during the 2016 season when, after some frustrating finishes, Josh Gibb decided to mix things up and took a crack at racing enduro at the North American Enduro Cup in Kellogg, Idaho. After 2 days of racing, he came home with the top spot in U21 Expert Men. This unsuspecting finish perked the attention of team sponsors, DVO, FSA and Transition Bikes, which brought encouragement from them to broaden the team focus to include Enduros in 2017.
