I just hope this shot storm finishes and next years racing happens, I can't but feel sorry for Jack Moir who is having a great year in Enduro and DH now but I feel he should be put on the full DH programme for 2021!

I would also don't want to see Hart back on Giant but I have a feeling its going to happen as they have been a not of a nothing team the last 2 years.

Maybe if we make enough noise Yeti may come back to DH racing with a SB190 Switch DH bikes that was once prototyped, it clearly works great and all Yeti have to do is make 100 limited edition bikes and they'll all sell out.

not for nothing, but giant currently isn't offering their DH bike for sale in the US, not sure if that's business driven or is somehow tangentially driven by their limited DH program - 3 riders, one of whom isn't a dedicated full time racer. nothing against EJ, one of my fav riders, but he wasn't planning on a full 2020 WC schedule even before the season went sideways

edit: initially misread your post, but i still think giant is unlikely.

Here's the aforementioned instagram post with the new Jekyll/Judge/Whatever.

Wasn't one of last years main rumours that Jack Moir was off to Cannondale until they canned the idea of a DH team at the last minute? It would be a bit of a backflip to then release a new DH bike with zero presence on the WC circuit.

we totally got the point, BUT some dude from Switzerland wrote "the team manager of ms has personaly wanted danny back. He needs someone to put pressure on laury to finaly start winning more frequently" and we simply want to state that this is not the case.

It's one thing to do some random guessing and share speculations, but another thing to make a bad joke on the back of riders.

Apparently spec only sell 500 DH bikes a year, they mentioned it on one of the podcasts. So 100 might be a stretch.

Kind of takes away the fun of it when the teams start getting involved with the actual team 'rumors'. haha

Next we will has SC Syndicate popping in to tell us Greg is fine for another year as they just dropped of a crate of wine at his house.

That was amazing. Danny did not seem stoked and Will was just matter of fact about it. NOT AN AMICABLE SPLIT.
Nice work by Wyn.

So Giant is actively working on their DH rigs. I've seen it. Tweaking and refining is what I gather

Here's the aforementioned ...more

on the c'dale team topic - there is a UCI rule that stipulates bikes/components used in racing must be available for commercial sale within a certain timeframe from when they are first raced. since c'dale didn't commercialize the DH bike they were racing, i've been wondering if that was a factor in the dissolvement of the team.

per UCI:

Part I - General organisation of cycling as a sport - 1.3.006 - Equipment shall be of a type that is sold for use by anyone practicing cycling as a sport.
Any equipment in development phase and not yet available for sale (prototype) must be
subject of an authorisation request to the UCI Equipment Unit before its use.
Authorisation will be granted only for equipment which is in the final stage of development
and for which commercialisation will take place no later than 12 months after the first use
in competition. The manufacturer may request a single prolongation of the prototype
status if justified by the relevant reasons.
When assessing a request for use of equipment which is not yet available for sale, the
UCI Equipment Unit will pay particular attention to the safety of the equipment which will
be submitted to it for authorisation.
The use of equipment designed especially for the attainment of a particular performance
(record or other) shall not be authorised.
Upon expiry of the authorised period of use of a prototype (equipment not yet available
for sale), any item of equipment must be commercially available in order to be used in
cycling events. The requirement of commercial availability shall be understood as
equipment having to be available through a publicly available order system (whether with
manufacturer, distributor or retailer). Upon an order being placed, the order shall be
confirmed within 30 days and the relevant equipment shall be made available for delivery
within a further 90-day deadline. In addition, the retail price of the equipment shall be
publicly advertised, shall not render the equipment de facto unavailable to the general
public and shall not unreasonably exceed the market value for equipment of a similar
standard.
Any equipment which is not commercially available and is not authorised (not authorised
by UCI Equipment Unit or authorised period expired), may not be used in cycling events
governed by the UCI Regulations. Any such unauthorised use of equipment may be
sanctioned by disqualification of results obtained when using the equipment and/or a fine
ranging from CHF 5’000 to 100’000.

Nathan Rennie, but I think there were reasons on that one. Something about a big blow up at interbike one year. At that point it was Peaty, Rennie, Bryceland and Minnar had just joined the team the previous year from Honda.

That's hust the key, if it's shrunk to a point where it doesn't make sense to put out a bike on the market (a-la Yeti), but if it still has marketing potential, why not make a spaceship of a bike? A different bike for every rider on the team? Etc.?

Maybe recoup the development costs with a run of 20 'one-off' bikes, custom made for the buyer who can spec the geometry the way he pleases. Make a marketing thing out of it.

Mercedes, through sponsorships and prize money, paid 30 million for the F1 team in total in 2019. The supposed marketing effect it had having a dominanting team is supposedly in billions.
Point? You don't have to sell the race vehicles for the team/discipline to be a marketing success.
