Mark Wallace is ending his long run at the Canyon CLLCTV downhill World Cup team. The Vancouver Island rider spent six years with the team, earning podiums, top-10s and excellent overall results along the way.
Wallace earned two podiums in 2021, one in Les Gets France and another beside Finn Iles in Snowshoe, W.Va.. The latter was the first time two Canadians shared an elite men’s downhill World Cup podium.
The news follows shortly after Canyon CLLCTV’s other Canadian downhiller, Jake Jewett, departed the team to join Pivot Factory Racing.
There’s no word yet on who Wallace will race with in 2023.
