Reed Boggs, off Trek

|

12/28/2019 11:21 AM

So, with Darren off Canyon, Reed off Trek and all the other big names moving on, it's definitely one of the biggest shake up's in the MTB Freeride scene in the last few years. The silly season started off slow. I never expected it to become so busy.

Darren, Reed and Eliott Lapotre all leaving large gaps. Andreu to Commencal seems very likely. Nico: Transition (likely), YT (would be a good match in my opinion), Canyon (HQ is close to Belgium and they already have another big name from this country under contract...). Eliott to GT (as rumored in this forum, why not?), Reed: no clue, Darren: no clue as well.

Jamie has left and Kaos has no UCI points, so FMD = Tahnee. Either they pick up a pair of new riders or join an existing team.

Graves: Not going back to Yeti (I am tipping Trek)
Andreu: Off to Commencal with Luis with support from Marzocchi.
Noga: Off to Trek with Jared and possibly Richie for a Super Enduro team.
FMD: Canyon Frames, Fox and Shimano parts and Royal Racing.
Shark Attack Jack: Scott supported rider, not factory team but out of the factory truck still.
Nico: Transition will be a good fit for him, can do what he wants and sink beers between big hits.
Bearclaw: Doing his own thing with sponsors he still has, possibly end up with a Transition frame under his caboose.
Reed Bogs: Joining Storch and Vanderham on the RM freeride team.

Did not see that coming! Certainly mixes things up this year. Speah must be desperate to get their bikes on the top enduro step. Flo deffo to Trek? Surely Richie wouldn’t be doing a straight swap?

Storch is already on a Slayer with 200mm triple clamp forks. The slayer was made for use with either single crown 180mm or dual crown 200mm forks. Aggy had been on an Evil with 200mm Boxxers with 163mm rear travel.

I think he was injured in 2017/18? Either way he was running the British Cycling jersey for 2018/19 and didn’t have much luck. Have a scroll through his results on Roots & Rain.

As the saying goes: jumps for show, corners for dough

He has 29 points. Which is not enough to currently get him into any World Cup events. And in Mayhe will have zero carryover points and will only have those he has earned this year.
