Good to see her back in a fun spot. She seems to be one of the few athletes who performed best under the big S. a rare feat (I know, she isn’t under Spesh Factory now, but still)

Doesn’t improve my ‘cool and independent’ rating for them. They are a bit too involved in creating rumours (or should we call it fake news?)

And saw Jackson Frew riding in new Leatt clothing. So he will probably do the same as last year, his own ‘team’ with different sponsors and only the frame deal from Kona.

Hey, this is the rumour thread so ‘fess up

Again a photo of past race season. I don’t think they can time-travel and put new parts into an old photo?

There are far smarter guys working at (formerly) Robot than myself. So it is probably accounted for. But how does this work with the carbon lay-up. If I look at my raw carbon Sender you see many little details in the lay-up. Presumably to get the correct ... more »

Seems like a valid observation

Feels like a great team. Long time running, and Mick must be the most friendly and humble bloke out there. Spoke to him once at the races and he really made you as a fan feel important without being fake.

As this is an Racing pic I cannot imagine it is a new rider (using a pic from 2018 season on a different brand?). Just messing with us.

Yep, didn’t mean the athertonracing.co.uk domain name is new. My yellow and black GT jersey is a testament to that

I just meant: something is brewing as they are fiddling with their pages ... more »

Got a pop up in FB that the Trek DH Racing team (the Athertons) changed their website address. Had a look, it is just the Athertons with web address athertonracing.co.uk. When clicked it reroutes to Trek (still) But someone is changing their FB page ... more »

Super worth it to watch this 37 minutes. Good little bits of insight to mental stuff every so often.

Frew is not on it. So frame sponsor only it seems.

Added reply in a thread 2019 Racing Rumors 1/16/2019 2:39 PM

No, you are right. He is already on his Kona for weeks. He is easily spotted at Thredbo

Did you notice any sponsors on his jersey? I can only remember seeing him in jersey with no sponsors on it?

Sorry, bit late... Suddenly realised there is no mention of Jackson Frew moving to Kona in the Miranda Miller piece. Could be a) It is a Miranda Miller piece. Not a Kona Team announcement. b) Jackson is doing a similar thing as last year where he runs ... more »
