Could just be stuff he got from his girlfriend, Miranda Miller.

Not so much a rumor but looks like Canada's carbon heroes will be sponsoring a race team this year.

Man hope that's not the case, Alchemy is not far from my office, wonder if the money's not there for them to support a World Enduro pair...

There's a video interview of Anneke that was recently posted where she basically confirms a new program for 2019.

Shes had a rough couple of years. One of my favourite female riders, really hope we see her back up near the podium at the EWS where she belongs.

Right, only Cody Kelley is shown on their Racing page, ironically she's in the original video on the same page. Figured something was up with her not attending most of the EWS this season. Hope she comes back strong in 2019.

Norco, not made in Canada would be more like it.

Just a guess, but if Kate joins Scott there could be space for Malene Degn at Specialized alongside Annika and Simon (Danish national team :D)

Also there are rumors about big changes for the Focus XC Team in 2019.

Anneke video. No mention of Alchemy, says her favorite bike is 'coming'. And he says he's very interested to see where she ends up. She says "Me Too". So def not on Alchemy.

Press Release:



A Newcomer Joins the Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team

The Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team grows with a new rider for 2019. Rémy ABSALON and Elliot Trabac will be joined by Hugo PIGEON.

2019 is around the corner and it is time to make the team roster official. The Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team is stoked to announce the arrival of a third rider: Hugo PIGEON will join Rémy ABSALON' team in 2019.

From France, only 22-years-old (like his team mate Elliot TRABAC), Hugo is a cyclist very skillful, that's putting it mildly! He was an elite athlete on the road and in Mountain Bike, winning 2 XCO French Champion titles for instance.
In 2018, he decided to enter the Enduro circuit and he was pretty surprising. Without any experience, he showed immediately his technical skills and his speed with several EWS Top 30 and Top 20. No doubt by learning with the team , Hugo will be very promising next year!


Hugo, proud to wear his new race suit.

You can follow Hugo PIGEON on:
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pigeon_hugo/
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hugopigeoncycling

The Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team continues to thrive with the support of many dedicated and generous sponsors that offer high-performance products able to endure the most grueling race tracks in the world.

SCOTT, SR SUNTOUR, SHIMANO, DUKE, MICHELIN, ERGON, SYNCROS, D3O, TOPEAK, MIPS, ACROS, NUBE TUBELESS, AIRTEC, DEMANGEL FRERES

Thanks to them, our riders will be present on different race formats in 2019:

Our two young riders, Elliot and Hugo, will be more focused on the Enduro World Series. Rémy will race some too but also some adventure races like Andes Pacifico, E-bike events, mass start downhill marathon...

Keep going!

Why on earth does SR Suntour (title) sponsor a team not using their rear shock?

|

12/11/2018 12:22 PM

Here's a shot in the dark...Brendog. A racer who is more known for style and personality and willing to compete in other competitions as well. Besides that, he has a huge potential in videos/movies.

Let Connor try to win the races but also have Brendan come in to help push Connor's racing abilities and possibly give him some solid insight on some things that he might be missing being the only downhill racer in their lineup for quite a while.

I swear a few pages back Brendon signed with Scott for 2 years.

Maybe they don't have a metric sized trunnion shock to fit the frame.

Quoting team rumor article from PB:

"Ben Walker, Scott Product Manager, tells us that they have indeed re-signed Fairclough to ride their soon-to-be-released new downhill bike."
