Scott USA Mountain Ambassador Role for Double World Champion
bn3Sports is delighted to announce that two-time UCI Masters World Champion Petra Wiltshire has signed up as the new mountainbike and ski ambassador for Swiss-based mountainsports superpower Scott USA .
In a racing career spanning almost 15 years Petra has won titles in downhill, quad-descender (the early form of 4X) and endurance racing including two Rainbow Jerseys and a European Masters Championship. She’s even won a Bronze Medal at the European single-speed XC Championships.
Signing as an ambassador for Scott USA marks an exciting new chapter for Petra, as she steps into the role vacated by Swiss legend Rene Wildhaber, promoting the Scott brand all year round through racing, guiding, coaching and skiing/telemarking.
The summer will see Petra racing a variety of events across Europe, and embarking on a new role as a freelance coach and guide for Freeride Company in Champery, Switzerland. Further details of events across the Portes du Soleil at www.freeridecompany.com
The deal with Scott USA ensures that Petra will have access to some of the best kit on the market, riding the new Gambler 10 for downhill and the Ransom 10 Ltd Carbon for enduro events and long days in the mountains, and with Scott apparel, protective gear, helmets and eyewear, she’s sorted from head to toe!
The bikes will be tricked out with the latest kit from SRAM transmission systems and Avid brakes.
Petra is delighted to be continuing her longstanding relationships with two outstanding sponsors:
Mule Bar, the UK-based champions of ethically sourced energy will be taking care of Petra’s nutrition.
Buffera UK will be supplying exclusive editions of their versatile Buff systems and the new range of Sue-Me bamboo fibre casualwear.
Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements via Petra’s website www.petrawiltshire.com which will be going live in the near future.

"We happened to be riding out in Tokai forrest over the weekend, when our novice
companion came off the bike on a rocky descent.The man was slightly bruised, buth his bike was worse off with a nasty sidewall cut of an inch.This we only discovered after the second tube went pop.Anyhow after a but of scratching our heads, we used 2 mulebar wrappers to create the gaitor.
After eating the bar, the wrapper came in handy."
