It is a huge honour for Vertigo to confirm that Dougie Lampkin, brand ambassador and Team Manager of the Factory Team, will continue to play his key roles in Vertigo’s project for the next two years. Since the Factory started its activity back in 2014, the 12 Times World Champion and 12 Times SSDT winner, last four with Vertigo, has channelled all his unmatched experience and expertise to put Vertigo’s models amongst today’s most competitive and reliable bikes of the industry. With Lampkin sticking at the head of the whole group Vertigo reinforces its bet on the sport while setting a solid base to extend their lead as the technologically most advanced trials brand.
A part from spending many hours working closely with Vertigo’s engineers, Lampkin also leads Vertigo’s Factory Team as the Team Manager. Next year looks even more exciting after we proudly announced the signings of Miquel and Aniol Gelabert apart from keeping Jaime Busto, Berta Abellán and Pau Martínez onboard. There is simply no better Team Manager to guide this young prospects to the top of the standings, with Lampkin himself knowing what it takes to reach the glory and become a true legend of the sport. With two years ahead to guide them, future couldn’t look brighter for the team.
Looking to extend his already gold numbers as well, Lampkin has remained active in the competition scene the last few years, with Vertigo successfully helping the forty-three years old Red Bull athlete to increase his SSDT registers up to 12 victories while winning the Scott Trial in 2017 and 2018. Now, Lampkin will be looking forward to continuing this successful partnership through 2020 and 2021.
Dougie Lampkin: “I’m delighted to announce that I have signed again with Vertigo for another two years. I will continue to ride the classic events as usual and also continue as brand ambassador and team manager. We are looking forward to the season ahead, we are going to continue with the existing riders of Busto, Abellán and Martínez and we have got two exciting new signings with Miquel and Aniol Gelabert. We really expect well across the World Championship as well as all the great riders in the National teams coming to ride in the races. We are looking forward to it.”
