OK, enough e-bike and truck rumors, back on track with this team announcement from Nina Hoffman:
---------------------------------------------------------------
Stif Mountain Bikes and Nina Hoffmann Join Forces

Stif Mountain Bikes is ready to kick start the 2020 race season in a big way – we’re stoked to announce that rising DH World Cup star, Nina Hoffmann, will be flying the Stif Mountain Bikes flag across the globe throughout 2020 under the team name: Nina Hoffmann Racing - Stif



In 2019 the 23-year old German racer proved she was a force to be reckoned with aboard her Santa Cruz V10 and showcased some incredible results, including a 2nd place podium spot at the UCI World Cup in Leogang. Nina’s insane levels of dedication as a rider, coupled with our support and 100% mountain bike focus, provides a killer recipe for more podiums and good times throughout the 2020 season.



Stif is founded on a passion for racing bikes and it has led to us supporting a host of riders over the seasons. The past few years our race team has become an extension of the Stif family and represented at some of Europe's biggest race events. Welcoming Nina’s energy to the Stif crew reflects a desire to serve more riders across Europe.

Nina – ‘’Joining Stif means I can continue working with the best brands on the market. Santa Cruz and Juliana have been my bike sponsors for 3 years now. With Reserve wheels coming onboard now too it’s a racing platform I couldn’t be more comfortable with. I’m so excited to leave the start gate at the first world cup round in Lousa this year!’’

Nina will be attending every World Cup round, some IXS cups and a variety of other downhill and Enduro races. She founded her own UCI Team as a means to compete at the highest level on her own terms.

Nina: - “Establishing my own UCI team reflects a kind of self-fulfillment for me. Individuality and independence are, and always have been, important factors in my life. I love planning and organizing while learning new things and developing myself and my ideas further. Thanks to the backing of Stif and my partners, I am able to create a new professional structure while maintaining the familiar environment necessary for me to channel maximum focus into the races. Everything is in place and we can’t wait for the season to unfold – here’s to 2020!”



Nina Hoffmann Racing - Stif is operated by team manager Sven Heitmann and mechanic Erik Fickelscheer thanks to the support of the partners:



Thanks also to Nina’s local partners: Horn2Horn (Sascha), Andreas from GOT (Andreas), TOQ (Jena, Alexander) & the JenBike team

So Stif is Jungle, and Jungle is Santa Cruz, that is as close to factory as you can get without being on the Syndicate.

As long a hes get keeps those deals coming because he appeals to those other 50 year old guys with too much money because they hate they're life's and live through him, richie is living the dream. Not to take away from what he did for the sport in anyway, I'm stoked he's still at it and doing his thing, but that's his audience now and they have way more disposable dollars than the 15 year old kids watching slopestyle that has Ticket taste and a 2005 Norco Katmandu budget. Didn't he have a sponsored AMG G-wagon a few years ago.

Also, his website is gold. Wow. Almost as bad as that Fezzari.

So go to the website at my own risk ?

I hope this is fake news. I'd like to see Tahnee have a tremendous tremendous season.

2/15/2020 7:38 AM

Damn that’s a devastating start to this new chapter. Healing vibes Tahnee, hope for a thorough and steady recovery.

The upside is if they bolt her back together, recovery time can be rather quick.. i did mine years ago and was pedaling in about 2 months after surgery...

...and know all the experts on The Other Site (and their endurocats) have opinions about what a pro mountainbiker is and isn't supposed to be doing in the off-season and how dirtjumping ”doesn't help at all” in downhill.

The layout works, that's why everybody is 'copying' it. Also, it's not like they were the first ones...

Miranda Factory Team renews its UCI status for 2020
ÁGUEDA, Portugal – (February 18, 2020) Looking ahead to a highly competitive season, Miranda Factory Team is preparing to present its 2020 team of top talent.

For the second consecutive year, the Portuguese team has renewed its status as a Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) team, thereby demonstrating once again that its main objective is to have a presence in competitions at the international level.

In addition to the usual Portuguese national championships and cups for downhill and enduro, the team's racing schedule will also include the DH World Championships and World Cups, the Enduro World Series, World E-Bike Series, and Bosch eMTB Challenge, as well as other notable events.

“This year we undoubtedly have a dream team stacked with young and capable athletes with whom we want to solidify our international reputation," said João Filipe Miranda, the brand's CMO. "We will work together because above all, we want a cohesive and united team. The project has grown since it started, several investments have been made, and we are very confident heading into the 2020 season.”

The official presentation of the Miranda Factory Team will be in Águeda (location to be determined) on February 21. The event will present all the athletes along with the technical team and staff, as well as sponsors.

Diego caverzasi left cachet bikes and has not announced anybody else. Is there a reason no big sponsors will touch him? Seems like a regular contender for slopestyle podiums?

Seems like his two year deal with Cachet came to an end and he's not on the Crankworx tour this year, so maybe hard to get a deal. He's been riding a Beddo frame in his clips and will no doubt be back on tour soon. Not all the riders are in the ranking, so it's hard to see how far off he is. But just from his Crankworx results last year he'd be behind Tom Isted on 1314 points. FMB World Ranking
