I thought someone here posted a rumor that Kona was shutting down their race team?

Kona is getting out of the Pro Athlete game and going all grassroots.

Jolanda Neff moving to the states full time? Sunday morning McDonalds coffee crew in Pisgah Forest said she was making an offer on a 1.65million piece of property. Guess the Swiss athletes ain’t doin too shabby.

So if Luca is on Canyon hypothetically, who loses this game of Musical Chairs? Surely not a 4 man megateam!?

Troy (would bet my left nut he's staying)
Mark (probably bet my right nut....)
Kye? Young fella won Jr Worlds and is getting faster all the time...

Help me Ja Rule!

Maybe Miranda will land on Rocky Mountain.

|

11/24/2021 2:01 PM

That would make sense being that she's close with the whole team already. But Rocky has had the same team for a while, which would lead me to believe that they're likely paid pretty well. So would they be able to afford another athlete like Miranda on the team?

I'd say Jolanda is a cut above the rest. wink

Yeti to sign a female rider for the enduro team…

Connor to Syndicate ? haha but all jokes aside.
He's an amazing rider and I know Kona is a factory ride but feel Connor would benefit from having a different bike and some faster riders around him on a proper team, maybe Mondraker would pick him up If Laurie leaves

If it goes that way, does this mean there will be just Commencal vs Canyon in 2025?

I'm fairly sure that Kona is disbanding the factory team for the 2022 season, so unless he went the route of ambassador/youtuber (which I don't see him doing) he would need to make a move.

Winning a gold medal does typically afford one some nice opportunities..

There is the option that Kona is getting out of being the Team but still provides the frames. It seems to be the way things are going lately.

Printing money with a gold medal and a good agent.

Troy has a long-term contract. Mark is the one who could leave. a couple of star names on that team, they wouldnt be able to support 3 top ticket riders., especially with jack on the enduro side.

Ive heard this too. Second Canyon team with the "other" suspension and components brand

The big red S adding a lead female on the enduro side of things. Not sure if this was covered earlier in the thread.

If ”dropped” translates into receiving money from another company, after a contract has ended, latest team rumour is that I'm open to joining Team Dropped as of right now, accepting veteran's minimum salary! :D

A lot of people have just signed up with Insta360. Just seen loads of videos pop up on YouTube one after another. Matt Jones and Bernard Kerr being the one's I remember

well, there are already 2 Canyon-Teams, The Factory Racing and the FMD Team. So would Luca join FMD or is there gonna be a third team?

Connor to Forbidden?
He seemed to race almost more enduro than downhill this year. + there seems to be more and more forbidden riders around bromont, where his team mechanic lives? Just a wild guess

Could Miranda Miller be headed back that way?

It might also be related to them being available in our area and not much else.
