Specialized is extremely excited to announce that 2014 Enduro World Series Champion Jared Graves has joined the ranks of the Specialized Racing Factory Enduro team. Graves accomplishments on the bicycle are unrivalled, having garnered countless Enduro World Series wins, 4-Cross, Dual Slalom and Downhill victories. And even being selected to represent Australia in BMX at the 2008 Olympics where he would go on to finish an impressive 6th. Ever since Jared came onto the scene, he has been a force to be reckoned with, rightfully so as he is one of the hardest working and most professional athletes in cycling.

“I am pumped to join forces with Specialized, no other brand has the full compliment of top-shelf bikes and gear and the level of commitment to success. The whole team is setup really well with the best support, the best mechanics and the best teammates. Racing with my old buddy Curtis Keene is going to be unreal, we have been buds forever and now to be teammates, I am confident we can help each other and both become better riders through the process.” Said Graves.

Graves will be a head-to-toe Specialized athlete, racing primarily aboard the Enduro 650b and relying on Roval wheels, Specialized 2FO shoes, Ambush and Dissident helmets, Specialized apparel, gloves and tires.

Paddy Behan, Enduro Team Manager for Specialized Racing, had this to say about Graves joining the team, “Jared is pure class – you won’t find another athlete that trains as hard or puts as much into his efforts as he. There is a reason why Jared has always been up front and it is no secret – he is not afraid to put in the hard work in order to consistently get the results. Besides that, he is a gentleman off the bike and can always be counted on to be the life of the party. We are beyond excited to welcome him to the team and look forward to making some great memories together.”
