Mio Suemasa is one of the newest members of Spank's International Team, but by no means new to the world of top level DH racing! Mio has been a serious threat to the ranks of the UCI Women's Pro DH circuit for close to a decade, despite the fact that she is only 29 years old!
Hailing from Kobe, Japan, Mio has held the Asian DH Championship for 10 straight years! Add to that a successful career on the UCI World Cup, including a silver at the 2004 World Champs, and a podium already this year (2012) in South Africa! Mio is no stranger to success on two wheels...after all, she won the World Champion's spot when she raced as a junior as early as 2001.
When asked about her favorite trail...Mio chose Bromont Canada. Not bad!
Spank is proud to support Mio Suemasa with Spike 777 and Subrosa 747 handlebars, Spike Director Stems, and Tweet (Purple) rims!
