Probably not. On the 10th they said T-8 days. So tomorrow...?

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

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 »

47 too

Oh no! 46! OK. Norco or Marin it is. Let’s see!

I am 40+ So the Marin name has a ring to it for me

It could be that the owner of Polygon/Marin wants to kick both brands into our attention, but still... Norco?!? Who will be riding/managing the team for one of the best race bikes out there? ... more »

Tracey just posted a pic of her Polygon in Queenstown and thanking Fabien for his help. And Mick posted a pic of his Polygon in the Colorado snow. So yes...?

The Gwin to Trek seems to go up in smoke isn’t it. The Athertons to Marin still strikes me as odd. You would have two similar bikes (Polygon/Marin) at two different teams. What is in it for the owner of Polygon/Marin? Do they expect to get more street ... more »

Or Norco. My money is on Norco

Mentioned on PinkBike and it matches the fact the former Norco team sold off all their pit gear. But my guess is as good as anyone’s ... more »

Although last year wasn't the best (far from it and I am sure she will be the first one to admit that) she did well as a privateer before joining the 'factory' team. She was a real promise and back to good health I see no reason why she can't be podium

He is not saying the test has no info. If I look at it the test states that the bikes score relatively similar on time and points. But that doesn’t mean there is no difference in how they ride. It comes down to what you like riding/your style is. The Norco is no jumper. And the Demo isn’t all about full speed ahead. Both good bikes but different.

But no clues anywhere around Norco? Who will manage that team? Who will ride their bikes? They can't just quit after developing the Aurum HSP is it? I still feel it would be a good fit for the Atherton's except that Rachel need to switch to 29" (?) No ... more »

He meant Athertons off Hope for sure. (At least that is how I read it)

If Norco Factory Racing is selling it’s goods it will probably land with a team who have their own trucks, tents etc. As the Mob stays where it is Gwin will be out of trucks. So less likely to be on Norco? Atherton’s have all the goodies already and ... more »

I think we are more or less on the same page here I have nothing against discussing bikes related to riders switching teams. If you see Gwin riding a shock which looks very similar to an RS Deluxe: bring it on! Endless discussions about a wheelsize of

You are not taking the hints? This is NOT the 29”/SuperBoost/Ultra Dropperpost thread. This is about RACING RUMOURS!
