Over the last month the Amplid Research Cartel has been busy cutting hundreds of applications down to a select 20 riders who will battle-it-out to become one of Amplid’s next team riders.

Now the fun starts. The Amplid Ambush Academy members will be set five challenges by Amplid’s International Cartel team over the next five months and will be using cameras provided by GoPro to capture the action. Peter Bauer of Amplid said:

“The standard of riders without support from a brand is incredible. Through our media call-out we’ve managed to find 20 riders from all-over the globe who have blown away our expectations. Now it’s time for the Academy Members to prove that they have the motivation and skills we’re looking for in our future team riders. The next five months is going to be an exciting and fun time for us and the Academy Members!”
