Could make sense. Based off the second paragraph in this post appears Ibis could be turning over their entire team. Kind of surprising after taking the team title. I wonder who else could join. Was kinda hoping Cody Kelley, but as of his post today that seems to be ruled out.

Robin Wallner has not resigned from Ibis, so they will most probably keep on. Zakka got an offer he couldn't refuse, so that is why he is out.

Anyone knows what's happening with Rude?
From the way he is talking looks like he is staying with Yeti
But there has been some interaction on Instagram with Norco . Could that mean anything?

Wasn't that because his coach rides Norco?

So Mike is going back to FMD racing, I can see that. Where is George going to go?

Yep you're right. Todd Schumlick I think he actually owns Norco Factory Racing.
Was a long shot aha. I didn't make the link

This was covered several pages back. Richie was in BC for a few days and went on a group ride with Jesse, Finn, MirAnda and others but didn’t have a bike of his own. As stated, he borrowed the norco for the day. Still Yeti, Fox, shimano etc.

George to YT could be a possibility , dayzero is NZs YT "distributor" also nekos mechanic has been interacting with him quite a bit!

Both George and Brook are managed by 23 (Martin)

Also performx_training (Todd schumlick) has been quite active on both brook and George's social media , I believe he works quite closely with Aaron and angel !

It would be a lot of money , but could we be seeing a massive powerhouse team for yt?

Realistically though ... I think we are looking at Brook and George going to mondraker

Neither of the above for George

|

1/4/2018 8:42 PM

Anyone going to be on GT for next year?

|

1/4/2018 9:09 PM

GT and Mondraker have two new kiwi racers, who they are who knows

Maybe just a hunch, but this could be the video that shows that Giant is on Fox Suspension. The last video of Ethen Roberts they were riding RS in Whistler, this time around both on Fox.

I'm not convinced Emil was alive in a time when rules were few laughing

Pretty sweet lineup though.

Could bulldog actually be going to the UNNO wc team??

Erm, I love punk rock and I love what Mike Redding has done for our sport, but am I the only one here who has the impression that these Fasthouse guys are trying to pretend they have been around for longer than they have actually been? Also, the style on their gear bears a lot of similarities to another very well-known brand, but competition is always healthy. wink

Anyway, cool team and I wish them the best of luck in their endeavours! smile

Just a rumor.... but Cody Kelley posted that people should try guessing his new team during the next week. Nukeproof USA ...more

Kelan is a local CRC lad, probably find him around the top 30-50 next year. Might still be in college also won the last fox hunt.

Am I the only one who feels Trek had Buchanan as just a spot filler for last year and the Yeti deal was already lined up waiting for the green light once the season was over.
