They are on in house nukeproof wheels. Wonder if that still applies to the Sam Hill though

That's interesting because the new Mega 290 v4s are being sold with Mavic Sam Hill edition wheels.

Perhaps the new Mavic owners don't want to put money into sponsor ship right now.

Most teams are running house components these days in wheel department. Can’t say I blame them most of it is pretty good.

We seem to be forgetting the Syndicate - will there be a third rider? Or only two?

What's going on there? Does anybody know?

The speculation is over: Lewis Buchanan signs with Norco

Stay prepared for fun with Vital Gear Club

How does that work?

No more SRAM / RS for Vali?
Shimano / Fox?

Syndicate has had different kit sponsors for years. Now they'll have team riders on different drive trains and SUSpension. It's 2021. It's a whole new world!

Not to toot my own horn too much, but I actually did guess Norco based on the silhouette.

Didn't Tracy announce her retirement? I don't think Vali would go to Polygon as it is too small, no?

Tracy only announced her retirement for UCI WC Dh, not racing in general. I think that she's still with UR

There is only two riders on the syndicate this year

Yeah, safe bet. Maybe they are waiting for some contracts to be up next year.

Tracy retired from WC racing but not from IXS cups & crankworks. I think she's still onboard w/ polygon.
Mick has been working with Couscous for a long time, I can't see him leaving the structure now... And Tracy parting ways with her brother doesn't make sense to me.

Professional french asshole filling Vital's thread with baguettes and croissants.

Also why pay for 3 riders when 2 riders will have just as much success not racing the soon to be cancelled 2021 season?

Syndicate always 2steps ahead of the competition.
