Maybe I missed it but has there been anything recent from Blenki, Joe Smith and Henry Fitzgerald? On social media looks like Blenki and Henry still tagging Norco and posting stuff, Joe has been a bit quiet this year so far.

Seems like it will be the same team (+/- Joe) but run by Norco directly... Athertons not seeming likely for Norco?

I am not sure I have read anything about Gwin having ownership in anything else except the TEAM. Am I wrong? And, by the way, who are the owners of Intense as of right now, percentage-wise? Does Jeff still own a slice or is he just CEO and mastermind? Cheers!

You are correct, AG is the owner of the Intense Factory Racing (IFR) team as per Vital's interview with Todd Schumlick.

This is one rumor I literally have no idea about.

Syndicate's just feeling left out. ?

Loris, Luca and Greg is a given. That's why no-one is talking much about them.

Although Loris' insta had had Loic all over it, has he been confirmed for Spesh?

...WAIT...

GODAMNIT NOW I SEE HOW THIS RUMOURS THING WORKS!!!!

I heard that at the request of Jordi at Fox that the Syndicate needed to have a mechanic solely dedicated puzzling. Apparently, Jordi wanted an extra resource to spend more time deep diving on adjustments. Guess Greg simply didn't twist the knobs enough last season....

I think I'm not wrong at all, at the beginning of November I said this:

ClaudioFinale wrote: Teams confirmations

Finally the big question was revealed, Gwin to Intense with Neko and Jack Moir.
Today, during the launch of Tazer in Europe, a conversation between journalists and the European manager confirmed it.

Great movement from Intense that signs its neighbor of Temecula. We'll see what Gwin can do with one of the best paddock bikes.

11/8/2018 10:05pm
More confirmations!!!

Dean Lucas signed with Scott, new French team that replaces Velosolutions Scott, with Brendan as team mate

Charlie Harrison, Reece Wilson, and Charlie Hatton part of the new Factory team of Trek

Athertons moving to Marin Bikes

YT Mob will keep Angel Suarez and will join Vali Höll under the management of Martin Whiteley

Ratboy with Cannondale as 'manager' of the new team


Still waitng the confirmation of Athertons with Marin and the team mate of Angel at the YT MOB, but all the other info is confirmed, as I said then.

Wait - so do people in this thread get some sort of a cookie or something if they predicted/guessed/reposted anything and it actually happened? Or does it just make you feel like an Internet superstar LOL

Great question! I'm just a humble Mod and have no call in this. But I say there should perhaps be a Shreddy award for most prophetic Racing Rumors poster.

And I hope Claudio wins it, 'cause I've got my money on Marin.

I hope you all enjoyed the read... I had to ask about the team rumours thing, good to know the racers are in on it all too.

Vali Holl confired with sram until 2020. That was super old news.

Life rumours... where will they be at 40?

Shreddie awards for nailing that for sure!!!

Anneke almost certainly on specialized. You can spot specialized shoes and butcher tire on her instagram posts recently.

That‘s interesting. Are there any top riders left without a team by now? I like Angel, he‘s a great rider and seems like a nice guy. But he‘s certainly not selling bikes.. For a company that is very much focused on promotion (see that Jeffsy video) I’d expect at least one top scorer on their DH roster.

This is (will be) what Vali does! The best young and most stylish female rider is a good marketing point to me.
