Aston Tutt, Harry Barrett, Riley Scott and James Elliott will form the 2017 Madison Saracen Development Team, headed up by Jack Geoghegan.

The quartet – aged from 14 to 19 years old – will also get the opportunity to train alongside the Madison Saracen Factory Team as well as pitting with the British Downhill Series.

Madison Saracen started out in 2011 as a grass-roots development team, with the aim of progressing riders from the highly competitive British scene onto the World Cup podium. Its growing international presence necessitated the need for the team to split into factory and development divisions.

With World Cup podium performances from Matt Simmonds and Manon Carpenter in 2014, junior Matt Walker completed the pathway in 2016 when he stepped up to the Factory squad and won its first Junior World Cup in Cairns.

Team manager of Madison Saracen Factory Team Will Longden said: “I’m delighted to see a return of the Madison Saracen Development Team. We could see a hot bed of young talent emerging once again in the UK and Jack has seized the opportunity to help and support these great riders.

“We have had a huge success with our development team riders in the past and I see once again the potential for us to develop UK talent right through to joining the Madison Saracen Factory Team, competing internationally. Right now though I hope they are ready for a fun season of racing and riding together and I can’t wait to get on the hill and try to keep up with them!”
