The most surreal 72 hours in any team rumors thread yet. OT, definitely, but surreal nonetheless. dizzy

It was once said that "let him who is without sin cast the first stone". The dude that said that definitely never heard of the internet. tongue

Hope Zink gets forgiveness + peace and hope we get back on-topic.

Just watched Accomplice on Netflix last night and really respected how much time and effort Zink put into making sure that Paul Basagoitia wasn't left feeling alone. Zink taking the time and effort to put that message out on his social media and make a change raised my respect for him even more. Pretty cool...

Edit: whoops, name.

Honestly, I had no idea that he had reached out to apologize (or I'm assuming that's what he did on the forum?). Based on the behaviour that had been brought up, I made an assumption that the messages were negative.

Glad to hear that he's making some positive changes. I've always been a huge fan of Zink and hope to see more big things from him in the future!

Zink's history of bashing sponsors is well deserved. Company after company failed to hold up their ends of the deals. Felt dropped him when it was too late to get another good ride, Corsair and Evil, had to front his own travelling and etc, Hyper well LOL, and seems like YT dropped a surprise bomb on him.

Don't see any murmurs in Slovenian circles for now...

There was a news article on the slovenian MTB site that they have an intent of having a race in 2023 and 2024 with DH AND XC.

A throw back to 2020 team rumors..

Thomas Lapeyrie has landed himself on the Focus Rider 404 Crew. Pretty Awesome if you ask me.

Looks like even if WC1 Maribor is on it might be missing a few riders:

I guess this might not be the only announcement...

I wonder if Commencal are pushing their bike a lot or people/teams are actually seeking to ride the supreme so much. Maybe a bit of both?

It's no co-incidence pretty much any privateer who wants to go fast is on a supreme!

- Readily available
- good value
- even the base spec one rips
- proven kinematic
- be like Amaury

UR and polygon part ways
Photo
press release
As a team we want to say thank you to Polygon bikes for their support the past 8 seasons. It has been a wild ride and from a brand or a team perspective we achieved unprecedented results while having a crazy amount of fun.

It was a real pleasure to discover the amazing Indonesian culture, doing unforgettable trips, meeting crazy fans and making a lot of new friends.

So thanks to all the Indonesian people that worked, helped and supported us. We will see you again for sure!

Here are some words from Polygon bikes:
After years of partnership, multiple podium finishes, and a world cup victory, Polygon Bikes and UR Team have decided to go their separate ways. Polygon Bikes would like to thank the UR Team management, athletes, and fans for an unforgettable journey, and we are thrilled for the team's bright journey ahead.

"We are delighted that through our joint effort, Polygon UR Team has cultivated passionate athletes who have challenged the limits of mountain biking. As we embark on our own paths, we are excited for the many more accomplishments that we as well as UR Team will go on to achieve in the future” -William Gozalli, Director of Polygon Bikes.

Aren't you supposed to say... Certainly Not the Syndicate? How do you do that fancy highlight thing on the N and the S?
I'm excited if that's the case. What must they have in the works? Hopefully something worth the wait.

And the world still waits to see, or at least me, where Max Fredrickson goes. Those black frames he was riding didn't look quite as fat as the GT slash Cannondale frame. Perhaps a thinned down new frame for all?
