Or Norco. My money is on Norco

Mentioned on PinkBike and it matches the fact the former Norco team sold off all their pit gear.

But my guess is as good as anyone’s

Maybe the Atherton Bikes website is just going to be a bike shop for the hub of Dyfi and everyone is reading into it too much?

Im sure this wont be an overly liked comment but... Am I the only one who thinks the possibility of the Athertons racing Atherton branded bikes is just super F'ing lame?

In no way am I pumped that this rumour is a possibility.

I'm the same with the Gwin and Intense rumour. I think Gwin is probably the best pure downhill racer the world has seen since Sam Hill, but the intense DH team has always been about taking on that outsider ethos. Look at how they have backed Palmer, Kovarik and in the newer school, Jack Moir with his obvious talent, shitty injuries and penchant for getting bitten by fish.. Taking on Gwin is moving the Intense DH team vibe from a punk rock and sketchy surfer vibe to decaff starbucks, workout videos and gluten free. Shits gonna end in tears, mark my words.

Call me Captain Obvious here...

Just throwing this out there. Pinkbike just post review of Intense M29, nothing in the photos looked to be anything to spy but I could be wrong. But being the day before UCI teams need to be in, Intense looking to position themselves for a splash.

I'm totally with you here, but also totally biased, since I have always liked Intense, but never been a fan of Gwin.

To me the Intense team of the last two years was the most fun out there: scoring good results with young guns, obvious chemistry among them, some stunning progressive bikes (one of the first to put out 29ers etc.) and always looking fresh in those loud TLD kits, because who the hell else was going to wear grey and purple polka dots anyway? We will miss this team, mark my words!

Now compare the above with Gwin and his ”business decisions” motivated everything. Not to take anything away from him, as he's obviously an amazing racer who will be in our talks for long and definitely deserves a ton of respect, but it feels like this move, if it happens, sucks the life out of something joyous and brings in monotony. Still don't know how Intense would be able to afford Gwin, but it probably makes most sense to them, as they need to move some bikes in order to be able to continue what they are doing.
