no but working for 2 is sure to be a conflict of interest and i'm pretty sure that would be written in a racers contract. assuming his giant contract was 2 years which i think it was.

Doubtful. Elliot Seems like a smart guy. Maybe he's using this, if he actually is working at SC, as a learning experience for life after racing. Or to just expand his skill set... Or, maybe he's broke from fronting the bill on a new album he produced. Guy has gotta eat...

Glad you picked up on that, Spomer. Big news, that is.

I heard Jordi is going to wax his brows and some other part of his body in hopes of helping with the hunt for the future ex wife of Mr. Cortes....

Stevie Walton. Been with Commencal for (I think) two years now. Think the big announcement is the 29er DH bike.

I got news recently that norco is quitting the DH-effort. Any others heard the same thing?

I thought I heard they were going to make their proto DH bike available to the masses soon. seems odd that they'd add a niche product without a race team to help push sales and exposure. how many brands currently make a DH bike but don't have a DH race team?

Ohhhh I was wondering where all that traffic to my blog was coming from haha! Cool to see people thought it was interesting! Saw someone post that I was working at Santa Cruz and I figured I should squash that one. I'm riding for Giant for 2018. Just developed a good relationship with all the Syndicate/Santa Cruz guys over the years and anytime I get the opportunity to hang out I usually try to make it happen. Happy Holidays!
