She mentioned in one of her YouTube videos a while back that she signed a 10 year deal with YT when she was 14 or 15. Of course, things can still change but I don’t see any reason. I think the only question is if she’ll be in YT Mob or the SRAM team.

Shit, whole team is gone. Wonder if Flo will continue with his own team and Mondraker frames. He did a lot of r and d with them and the idea of a 29er Summum.

VV Racing have a very certain future and will pursue is dedication to help talented riders to reach high level.
They are just stepping back a bit at local/national level (but will do some WCups) as they cannot maintain a so big and talented team...

For sure Pierron's brothers, Marine and Florent have some new projects and no doubts they will be on the circuit in a way or another...

This is hardly a team rumour, but I woke up this morning being pretty sure Gwin posted openly about being on Intense. Then I realized, of course, this was just me dreaming. Dreaming like dreaming-dreaming, not wishing, because I'd seriously like the Intense team to stay as it is. I guess this speaks a bit about how much we like this thread and racing and the World Cup and all that...

Merry Christmas!

So based on this comment, it looks like the KHS thing is real? Noticed AG following KHS on IG but not Intense.

Maybe KHS working on a B2C strategy for N.A. YT compete?

Has KHS moved away from the Astro catalogue business model?

I don't think they really need to do much.

Maybe as simple as modernizing the geometry and kinematics on the baseline catalogue frame designs, then redesigning the marketing to sell enough for the custom order MoQs.

I'm sure their vendor has capable engineers, so just a matter of cutting a check to a couple consultants and pro riders to start writing design requirements.

My god.....a rumour about someone else who isn't Gwin....!!!! Quite funny that people are saying its a surprise and there weren't any rumours but that's probably as the majority of people on here are only interested in Gwin...:-).

I have no intel, but what about Nukeproof?

I'd certainly like to know where the Athertons are headed. I don't think a definitive answer has been posted here.

Has to be her, since the COMMENCAL / VALLNORD by Riding Addiction is run by the Ruffin brothers and one of them dates Myriam.
