If you caught Jack Clark’s new FFWD BMX edit that dropped last week(re-embedded at the bottom of this), you would have seen that he had decided to part ways with DK for a new opportunity. It was announced today that Jack is the newest member of the Haro U.K team. Check out the full press release below.
“Vista, California. 19 December 2012. Haro Bicycles announces the addition of Jack Clark as the newest member of Team Haro for 2013. As of 1 December HARO’s BMX freestyle team program has expanded to Europe adding the young and talented Jack Clark to the squad. Jack will be entering the major competitions all over Europe and will take care of HARO’s brand awareness in the UK working closely together with Moore Large, Haro’s importer over in Derby, England.
The newly developed European HARO program is lead by Bart de Jong who picked Jack for several reasons: “Jack Clark is one of those riders who rides from the moment he sees the ramp and doesn’t stop riding until they turn off the lights. Jack has made an enormous progression over the last few years that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Not only in England, but across the border as well as he likes to travel to the international freestyle events to compete in the pro class.” Bart continues: “For HARO it makes sense to work with a young rider who pushes the limits on what’s possible on a bike and represents the brand well. I trust Jack Clark to get HARO Bikes in the picture.”
Jack has been added to the worldwide HARO program. This is what Colin Mackay, Haro US TM, said: “Jack is a young kid always making the cut in the big contests these days, he always puts on a show and I’m stoked to have this energy within the Haro team. Having Jack represent Haro just made sense. Welcome aboard!”
To say Jack is motivated and stoked is an understatement. Jack Clark: “To be a part of the Haro team is just amazing, when Bart came to me with this opportunity I was so excited, I just couldn’t wait for it to be announced that I’m going to be riding for Haro bikes. It’s crazy, my first ever BMX bike was a red 16 inch mini Haro haha. I heard of Haro bikes so long ago now, when I was around 8 years old I believe, and started riding when I was 12. Just shows how big the company really is in the BMX world and Now I ride for them!” He continued: “The next two years are just going to be unbelievable with the Haro brand, I just can’t wait to start getting around and be promoting Haro. My plans for the future are simple; ride, have fun, travel, meet new people, film and do as I usually do.”
We welcome Jack to the HARO Bikes team. ”
