John Clark Motor Group proudly announces a new sponsorship partnership with Mikayla Parton, the phenomenal downhill mountain biker from Fort William. Mikayla's journey has been nothing short of inspiring, bursting onto the scene in 2020 with a remarkable 5th place finish at the UCI Downhill World Championships.

As an elite downhill mountain biker, Mikayla competes in UCI World Cup races all over the globe, showcasing her skills and determination on some of the toughest terrains in the world. She got her first mountain bike at age 18 and then her first downhill bike at the age of 19 before competing in her first race at Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders just a week later.

She won her first race in 2017 at Nevis Range before a string of wins in the Senior Women’s Category and then a leap into the Elite racing circuit. In 2019 she was named the Scottish Downhill Champion, took her first podium finish in the Elite category, competed in her first overseas competition, and competed in her first UCI Mountain Bike World Cup races.

We are really pleased to be able to provide Mikayla with a Volkswagen Transporter Combi van to support her training and competition needs. We are truly passionate about supporting local talent and providing opportunities for athletes like Mikayla to excel in their sport.

Mikayla's achievements serve as an inspiration to us all and we are honoured to be part of her journey.

Join us in cheering on Mikayla as she continues to push boundaries and make big waves in the world of downhill mountain biking!
