For 2020, Mongoose has expanded the team with the addition of new athletes and also a few new race teams in both the US and UK! Included in the expansion is Payton Ridenour, a seven-time USA BMX National Champion and is one of the top-ranked amateur riders in the US. Payton rides multiple cycling disciplines and won the prestigious UCI Red Bull Pump Track World Championships in 2019. She placed 4th in the world for Jr. Elite Women in 2019 and is looking to capitalize at the 2020 World Championships. The epitome of a student-athlete, Payton is able to maintain straight A’s in school!

What Payton has to say now that she’s on the team
I couldn’t be more stoked to join the Mongoose squad! When Justin Posey recognized me to be a part of the team, it seemed like a perfect fit. I always love helping out everyone and giving back off of the track. I can’t wait to see what this new year has to offer!
