Reece Wallace stays with Giant.

I'm stoked to re-sign with the Giant fam for two more years! With World Champs under my belt and Covid putting a damper on travel, it's a great year to stay at home and crank out videos in BC. Rad to work with a brand who continually supports and trusts my vision with videos, and I'm pumped for the future! - Reece

Almost can say the same here in Aus, That Trans-Tasman travel bubble cant come soon enough, I want to ride Queenstown again and I'm sure my Kiwi bro's wanna go to Bondi Beach lol.

Shame Pivot couldn't make space for Charlie on the factory team. The team dynamic those guys had was great.

Side note: weird that he’s running an Arch cb7 rim on the back of a DH bike. Pretty sure it’s got like a 26mm internal width and weights something super miniscule.

I think the arch carbon is actually heavier than the flow carbon rim?

They are a department store brand that mostly sells bmx and I believe dirt jump bikes. They have decided that mtb is a good way to market their products. They basically have one offs for their endorsers and don’t produce high end mtb bikes for market.

This is likely more trolling, but Remi seems to be saying his new frame sponsor doesn't have a true DH bike in their lineup here. Maybe Evil? Aggy left and I haven't seen them pick up anyone else. Photo

or Rocky Mountain, they got rid of the maiden, they have been giving their freeriders dual crown slayers, they don't have a road bike, and they're sold on Jenson USA, a partner of Remy's

They have been trying to break into mtb for years. Eric Carters first started working with them to build mtbs like 10 years ago.

That's what I thought, for as long as I can remember. They have a few riders signed to them.
EC is a good guy think he left to run the Specialized MTB DH program for a while then returned.

Seems like he has come and gone a few times. I remember stories he left the first time as he didn't like the direction they ultimately chose. He seems to have a soft spot for the brand as they were a sponsor of his back in his BMX days.
