I have to admit, the story behind that photo interests me more than the story behind these soap opera cartoons.

SPONSORS ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO PROMOTE THE BRAND, GIVE CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK ON PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE NICE AND HARD WORKING FOLKS. THERE'S NOT A LOT OF ROOM ON THE PODIUM BUT THERE IS A LOT OF VALUE TO BE GAINED OUT OF EVEN PACK FILL PEOPLE ON THE WORLD CUP CIRCUIT (AND EVEN LOWER RACE TIERS ON DOWN TO LOCAL EVENTS).

PEOPLE WHO DON'T GET THAT ARE CHUMPS.

No i meant how is that relevant to any of this thread

And yes I know he is with Giant now but I am not sure how long he will stay with it, specially with the strong young riders coming up. I know that Riffle is super committed, hard worker and more but he is just not in that level.

Literally the entire thread has to do with sponsorship of athletes? Who knows?

Perhaps more importantly- who cares?

well I guess that answers the bulldog sketch. brook to 23 degrees.

Morewood blog update

"Hmmm...maybe we should make refrigerator magnets of the team kit so you can build your favorite rider like Jackie...er, wait did I just leak the first name?"

Fingers crossed for Mrs. Harmony.

Brook has since tweeted that he was riding Moto with Blenky and simply borrowed some old gear... And here we are making up stories! I think I believe him... Could he join Trek with Gwin? Different personalities for sure...

And some new rubber too it would appear... (since I assume the relationship with ENVE is pretty solid)

11/22/2011 9:49 AM

Can't say I didn't see that coming. SRAM has really cut down on their sponsorship. The rims appear to be darker so I think Enve is still a go.

looks like cable/housing and possibly spoke sponsorship is up for grabs too since i don't see them on the drawing. insane!

11/22/2011 9:52 AM

Such juicy rumoring!

I heard a rumor that the 2012 V-10 needs neither spokes or cables.

11/22/2011 9:56 AM

wonder if it's a campy / noleen deal?

Fingers crossed for an RST/Suntour/Tektro deal!

YOU'RE RIGHT. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. IT'S UP TO OTHER PEOPLE TO KEEP IT "REAL" SO I'M NOT SURE HOW TO "REEL" THESE CHUMPS BACK IN? MAYBE BY CONFIRMING THAT SYNDICATE IS GOING TO BE RUNNING KOOKA CRANKS.

WORKS FOR FREE.

BOS, BOS, BOS! and whoever else for the rest. I'd like to see more variety in the US market. And for that matter, I'm getting tired of waiting for an X Fusion downhill fork.

I heard rumors that BOS has/had financial problems and that at one point was on the edge of bankruptcy - highly doubt they would sponsor a team like the SC Syndicate.

Presumably with all the effort they've put into making the V10 light, they will still want a good air option for the shock....Cane Creek with the new double barrel air?

I am not an account expert, but it seems you are right, I just checked on a dedicated website and.....
A trade court decision allowed the company to still run their business in November 2010, certainly due to better 2010 results compare to catastrophic 2009.
I just hope 2011 will be even better for them.

11/22/2011 12:53 PM

ZZYZX forks, Mountain Cycle disc brakes, Girvin Flexstems, and Cook Bros. cranks?
