Just saw a tweet regarding Evil, apparently the Undead as well as the Uprising have been approved for production just now.

With the Athertons and Animal now parting ways...could they be headed to O'Neal, what with their "mystery rider" competition that looks like Greg a bit but could also be Gee or Dan...?

That would have to mean Enve rims on the GTs if that was the case...

Yesterday, Craig Stikman Glaspell tweeted a photo of a TLD D3 with a fresh Red Bull paint job and an allusion to a top secret new signing. Here's the text:

"@stikmanglaspell Just finished Top secret lid, for a top secret guy, on top secret bikes @GTBicycles http://twitpic.com/7wwzg7"

As of today, that tweet and the accompanying photo has been taken down. Make of that what you will.

Yes men! He just came to Colombia a few weeks ago for a Downtown and he was riding a GT Fury with FOX clothing.

Same helmet as Worlds only he peeled the Specialized and SRAM stickers off and added the CTI brace sponsor. Yeah for medical devices! I feel like if he was sponsored by Nike they would want him to have a sticker on his helmet...

From Steve Peat's twitter:

"@santacruzbikes Dougie fresh doing what he does best!! Getting him ready for dual tonight @thisisheffield pic.twitter.com/cL0pmcup"



Looks like Shimano Saint rotors to me...

UPDATE: The tweet was deleted. Guess we were on to something!

I'm calling Syndicate on Marzocchi. A little birdie told me Greg was in Italy last week doing suspension testing...

I'm not sure if its in this thread yet, but I also heard Tracy and Mick Hannah are on Morewood this season.....

I'm calling you wrong! Greg was in Italy, but he was testing with Fox, alongside Josh, Peaty and CG...

2/2/2012 6:41 AM

No way Syndicate is on Marzocchi. Marzocchi wishes they could sponsor a team like that.

We just saw video of Danny Hart in Italy doing suspension testing. I think WC riders just go there to stay warm regardless of which company they are suspension testing for.

It's Shimano/Fox for the Syndicate, especially after Ratboy Bryce's website sponsors popped up and CG's new jersey.

2/2/2012 12:39 PM

looks fancy

2/2/2012 5:49 PM

MS-Mondraker is on Marzocchi.
