That would be awesome to see Orange back at the world cups and with a British rider!

Not WC related but I follow Yoan Barelli on PB and he has been selling several Commencal bikes/frames lately. Could be just moving to new model year or selling stuff he doesn't ride but maybe a sign he is moving to someone new?

I dont think Danny Hart would ever ride a Polygon. With the launch of Cube's new dh bike, I think it's a safe bet he signs with them and they move on from Atwill. Other option is he sets his own program up.

He's had clif on the helmet for the last while. Since he's south Africa's top racer I'm surprised he didn't have a RB helmet before unless he wasn't interested in what came with it.

Also the helmet seems to be an Alpinestars (like Brooks helmet) and not an Oneal one (Minnaars helmet and clothing sponsor).

Point number 1 is slightly incorrect. UCI rules only apply on certain races. The Ironman and Challenge series, amongst others are not subject to UCI rules and as such this is where you see most of the uber bike design, things such as integration, beam frames, massive forks and aero additions.

The tech shows when the World Champs in Kona roll around are very interesting.

I think UCI DH is much more akin to World Rally. Let's start that thread.

Danny looks set for Cube, any else think that’s a strange match? I suppose Cube lost Greg Callaghan last year so don’t have a big ride signed to their MTB teams and they have been plugging their new DH bike.

Is luca shaw’s contract up at the syndicate, as he joined they same time as loris?

If loris joins Trek who will leave, they surly won’t have 4 Elite riders on the team? Reece?

Does Wallace have a contract / still fit in the budget with the Canyon Capiltal Letter Consonent Collective?

I thought Gee might go enduro a few seasons back, because he’s pretty fit. But I dunno now, he’s so far off the pace this year.

Think kade, Harrison and Wilson all signed with the new trek team end of 2018. So would have done 2 seasons? Contracts seem to be 2-3 years, don’t they ?

I'd imagine Trek would keep Kade for the marketing alone. He's placing where Fairclough or Gracia were a few years ago but like them have kept on the rad riding on the side so how could they let him go. Maybe the throw him on C3 after a while but he's worth too much outside of racing to let him go.

I can see Wilson being up for grabs. As world champ and a racer on the up swing trek will either push to keep him or he'll end up with a fresh contract on another team.

Is Gee a dad yet? Isn't that an Enduro prerequisite? Maybe Danny's actually going Enduro for Cube? But really, I wouldn't see Rach doing Enduro, she's hated on pedalling to the point it's annoying to hear her talk about it. Gee maybe would, it would be smart since Enduro bikes are likely the bulk of what they'll sell.

I noticed this ages ago but is Dean Lucus not with Scott any longer even thou he rides their bikes ?

I don’t follow many riders on the gram but surely sponsored riders should have Scott Factory rider as the main heading in any bio during a contract ?

Dunno if ya heard Rob mention in the Lousa Race #1 broadcast, during Phil Atwill's run, he asked whether there'll be a big Engish rider riding for them next year?

Sounds like Danny sorta talk, or Rob just playing mind games. If so, well done Rob, you got me!

Reece stays at trek
Rach is retiring, gee carries on racing and Charlie stays with them
Danny to cube or he may also retire

Coronavirus pandemic means there’s riders from this year on 1 year contracts who won’t get rides next year as budgets are cut (and despite bicycle companies selling a few bikes this year) marketing And team budgets are reduced. Given the higher costs involved with travel and further uncertainty into 2021 and companies wanting to keep staff in jobs.

Same reason why a small amount of racing happed this year. To keep the industry going and keep staff with jobs.

Pretty sure Dean is still on the Scott team this year but decided not to travel because of travel restrictions in Australia, same with Connor Fearon not travelling.

I don't see Rachel retiring, recently she said she was a bit torn about not going to try and race. I think the fire is still there. Danny to cube will either mean they build a top level team or he will just ride the bike and do his own thing. But let's not forget Warner might just be wrong.
BTW loris leaving Syndicate would be weird. Let's nor forget how much he "values" his suspension setup/thinkering, going to a RS team would mean big changes with that and moving over with the Fox race assistance apparatus (not saying RS is worse, I'm not sure how they handle suspension tuning at WC).

I can hardly imagine them being much worse, but they do not have a Jordi and the video series to put that out there, that is true. So it's harder to gauge.

And yeah, Loris going away from Fox would sure be weird. But he should kinda be used to it from the Gravity Republic days (they switched over to Ohlins a bit later than switching to Specialized).

Rob mentioned several potential team rumors in Lousa part 2.

• Trek is getting a "French big name" (likely Loris)
• Dak Norton might be looking for a team for 2021
• Reece staying at Trek

Anything else I missed?

Is Cabirou on a 2 or 3 year with scott? possible she might be the big french name if its a two year? shes absolutely slaying it these last two seasons.

And yea Dean stayed home for sure, i think it was actually odd to see Moir and the other Aussie/Kiwi crew off their islands with the travel restrictions in place other than Brook who had a horse to get back on. Can't even begin to say how stoked i was to see him crush it like he did. Legend.

Dak Norton to Trek would be a nice fit!

I hope he lands a good ride, that guy is a future WC winner in my eyes.
