With all that John has on his plate, it’s never a dull moment and there are bucket loads of requirements. The range of duties covers everything from deep collaboration on product development with sponsors, to designing and building the Factory “on the road” trailer, to coordinating all the optimal bike parts to support the races, and most importantly, ensuring that the riders receive the best bike setups and tunes to achieve their best results.
