Norco factory team xc
Over the past couple of years, Norco Factory team members Haley Smith and the brothers Peter and Quinton Disera developped into the world-class athletes they are - racing on the highest competitive level possible. For the 2019 season, the team gets even stronger, with Andrew L’Esperance and Sean Fincham, formerly competing as Forward Racing, officially joining the Factory squad. Together, the team will continue to push the limits of the sport on a world-cup level.
