Danny Hart will be riding for Madison Saracen from 2018.
Hart joins young riders Matt Walker and Alex Marin who’ll all be tasked with piloting the Saracen Myst in the World Cup next season.
The team will be under the stewardship of manager Will Longden again in 2018, who commented: "It’s fantastic to have Danny joining our team; Madison has worked hard to elevate the level of the team and the support we offer our riders, so this is an exciting next step on our journey.
“Danny is the man to watch on a World Cup weekend and his results speak for themselves. Along with our junior World Champion Matt Walker (moving up to elite) and Alex Marin, I think we have an awesome trio for 2018 and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
Madison CEO Domenic Langan added: “The Madison Saracen Team has been no stranger to the podium over the years thanks mainly to the successes of Manon Carpenter.
“But for the boys podiums have been more elusive. Danny is a very important signing for the team and a significant step up in our ambitions. Supported by Junior World Champion, Matt Walker in his first year in Elites plus the talented Alex Marin, the 2018 Madison Saracen team is a formidable force to be reckoned with.”
"I’m really happy to be joining the Madison Saracen Factory Team,” added Hart. “I’ve watched the team grow and prosper over the last decade” he said. “The success they’ve had over the last few years shows that this team is in the top tier of DH racing teams. It’s going to be an exciting few years!"
