Endura Racing general manger Brian Smith is targeting stage wins both domestically and in Europe for the much strengthened outfit in 2012.

Ian WIlkinson will continue to ride for Endura who have a number of new faces for 2012

Former Team Sky rider Russell Downing, Premier Calendar winner Ian Bibby and Australia’s Dean Windsor and Zak Dempster form part of an accomplished line-up with Smith targeting a win for every rider within the team.

“We’re not going to make up the numbers – we want to want to win stages. I know we’ll be fighting with WorldTour teams in these races and it’s going to be very difficult, but we want to have success in these races,” Smith said.

“It’s about spreading the wins throughout the team. I want to see everyone of these sixteen guys win a race this year.”

Smith was speaking at The London Bike Show at the official Endura Racing Team launch. Great Britain’s Oli Beckingsale has been listed as a team associate for Endura MTB.
