Is anyone thinking that it's an Evil Undead riding the supposed Cam Cole (not sold on this)? Yeti doesn't really make any sense

Morewood blog update"Hmmm...maybe we should make refrigerator magnets of the team kit so you can build your favorite rider like, wait did I just leak the first name?" Fingers crossed for Mrs. Harmony.

I think you're onto something. Mick / Tracey / Tim. Makes sense. The only badass chick I can think of that rode for Morewood was Lisa Myklack, outside of that, I can't think of any other girls they've taken on...

in the past, these drawings have been quite too the point and only misleading as they have to be. From what I see, its obviously Souf Africa, the Australian line looks to be Cairns (think Mick), the American line looks to be South Dakota / Wyoming / ... more »

I think Weeny is spot on. I didn't even think about "Bren-dog" OH THE SUSPENSE

So, "A Day at the Races" let's interpret, MS evil chasing number 23 (Fairclough? / Payet?) which is chasing a Bulldog (Brooke Mcdonald)?

this is really good and will add to the lapse in time between now and april. MUST HAVE MOAR

Hands down favorite rider. it seems as though every two-wheeled sport he has entered, he has done well in. I would imagine his injury was caused by him falling off the cliffs similar to what he shot in Earthed 3. Hope he returns quickly.

those Ortema neck braces look very very interesting. Do they have a US distributor or are we basically SOL?

I've seen several people run a semi slick... Something to think about for the weight weenies. me, DHR front and rear baby! I've heard that's what Sam Hill rides

I just sent off an email as well, along the same lines as my post but without all the EXTREME sarcasm... see what they say.
