Tracy retiring... ACC making a comeback... Would rock to see Trek employ the revolving door strategy and (likely) continue to dominate women's WC DH!

No rumors involving Syndicate team athletes so far, wondering what's in store there...

Troy Brosnan possibly? Ask me what I'm smoking, but the way that monster hat looks on that stick figure in the Chess Game one looks an awful lot like Mr Brosnan, and I'm pretty sure Monster/Speshy doesn't run Funn, also wouldn't it have the SH22 if it were Sammy?

If only Lopes read Vital he would have known that 5 days ago.

Do you think he can read?

Anyway, it would be a drag to let Mick or Marc out on the the street in favor of an aging and injury-prone Dan Atherton. Especially with no 4X this year...

i think lopes can read, but probably only at a grade 6 level. higher reasoning, which would be required to decipher these cartoons, is sadly something he probably lacks.

um guys i think lopes just repeated the post because gt are doing what they did to him and the rest of their team a few years back, cut them without telling them or showing any respect for what the riders have done for them, lopes won them something like 7 world champs. GT is doing it again and we now know that its TMac and probs marc beaumont getting the cut and their replacing them with the athertons

All this Lopes is dumb talk got me thinking. Lopes rides for Ibis. Anne Caroline rides for Ibis. If AC is comming back to World Cup DH, will there be a Carbon Ibis DH bike in the future? Or are the Athertons shoping for a team because Max Commencal wants AC back? And yes, turning IS fun. And yes turningisfun, I agree, GT is pretty ruthless in the way they deal with their riders.

Typically with these things, the artist (loose term here) has given pretty obvious hints as to who the players are with regard to offering deals (the yeti, Whiteley's glasses and Audi, Stoeckl with his aero helmet and "MS"), so maybe they don't know exactly who is trying to lure Bryceland out of SC world.

Well at least we know that Brendog remains a Monster ahtlete. This from his Twitter today. Still no clues as to the team though, if indeed he is changing teams, as was previously insinuated in this thread...:
