That would be a bummer as he was the best rider on that team, but they were probably the most unlucky team with all the injuries...

Best (or worst) prediction for 2019: Athertons on Marin Xquare one clone with Trust the DH prototype fork, the ugliest bike the world has ever seen, Gee and Rach win all races by margins even Vali cant reach in junior women, the world burns.

Since you are talking about Monika, I've just went full Sherlock and found that the last story she posted on IG is almost certainly from Cannes, France. Troy Brosnan just traveled across the world to the south of France and Mark Wallace is there as well. ... more »

The thing is, registration deadline is 15th, UCI page however does not become available immediately, last year it happened around 10th of February... But this still gave some info on previously unannounced teams, I think UNNO was one of them...

This sounds really cool and I don't remember anyone speculating about it

Seagraves have been supposedly confirmed to stay on Transition for 2019...

Video is titled: "Running in some new parts. So stoked on the set up for 2019.", can anyone figure out what new parts he is running? I'd say brakes are still TRP, fork looks like 36?
