NOT BY LUCK - Dylan Maples

Dylan MAPLES’ story is pretty unique! From privateer to factory team rider is not a coincidence.
Spotted and integrated into our COMMENCAL MUC-OFF team, the young American was able to prove that he had the makings of a top-level athlete. Thanks to a mindset forged by years of wrestling competitions, hours of building technical experience riding with his friends around Sacramento, plus results in the top 15 at World Cup races in his second Elite season, Dylan clearly has his cards in check to build a career worthy of the best.

Dylan is part of the latest generation of American riders inspired by the success of Aaron Gwin.
Dylan was considered one of the best privateer riders in the field and thanks to these results, the COMMENCAL / MUC-OFF team offered him the opportunity to join the factory structure for the last three races of the 2023 season. This story is continued in 2024.
