Commencal had added some series talent to the roster with the "Young Guns". Commencal has had their eyes on these young rippers from Canada for a while and decided 2008 was the right time to invest in the future.

Alex "Pro" Prochaska is a Whistler local and son of Tom Prochaska, manager of the Whistler Bike Park. At the young age of 16 Alex whipped off the 2nd double back flip in competition, became Canadian National U17 DH Champion, pulled off a 6th at the Crankworx Whistler Slopestyle and two 5th place finishes at both Crankworx Colorado and Bearclaw Invitational Slopestyle events. Not a bad year for a kid that can barely get his drivers licence.

Micayla Gatto has been a phenom in Canadian DH racing for years now, after pulling off back to back National DH Junior Womens titles and a Bronze at World Championships, she up'd the ante this year by dominating the Canadian National Series winning all her races and taking the National Womens Elite/Pro title. Micayla has already started off 2008 with a 3rd place finish at the Downtown DH race in Chile! Watch for her competing at World Cups around the globe.

Brendan Howe might not have the same amount of titles behind his name but this young gun has a million tricks up his sleeve. Keep your eyes peeled, riding with Alex and Micayla will have this kid rippin it hard through 2008!

These Commencal athletes will be competing at all the major Slopestyle/Trick Competitions around the world, DH/4X World Cups and at the Canadian National Race series.
