Carl deals with eveything Squirt on a day to day basis. Hes been mtbiking for 20 years but prefers MX. He confesses to being crap at mx but enjoys it too much to care. He left the UK at 19 to cycle tour and returned 10 years later. His mtb portfolio is as diversified as you can get. Winning S African national xc events,SA national D/hill champion twice,World cup d/hill points scorer,24hr podium placings,winner of the 1100mile Iditabike impossible and southern route record holder,Trans-Wales category winner and a 17 day finish time for the Great Divide Race. His reward to himself after a full 2008 season was a titus road bike.

Being a wax/water emulsion Squirt lube is the only dry lube that does not contain a solvent, and as a result is more environmentally friendly than the others. Squirt has also been proven to exceed maximum biodegradablility criteria and brakes down 80% in 28 days, 25% better than the required limit. Squirt is 100% biodegraded in 58 days. This makes Squirt a friend of the earth.
Nickson only arrived in the UK two days before the start of the GORE BIKE WEAR TransWales, and his only taste of British riding – up until the start in Wales – was a lap of Richmond Park in London. But not only is the event his first ever stage race, but it’s the first time he’s ever ridden a full suspension bike (a Merida 96, courtesy of Merida Bikes)too. Displaying this type of Spirit Nickson is now a friend of Squirt.
