Doesn't look like Haley Batten or Chris Blevins are on Trinity anymore. They just released their full rider list and those two are conspicuously missing. Bigger and better things for both of them after the years they had?...

I think Red Bull maintains relationships with people who are hard workers, at the top of their respective sports and most importantly, have great attitudes.

If someone was deficient in any of those criteria, then I think there is a possibility Red Bull would want to separate from them.

Just a guess…

I believe Trinity is technically a U23 squad and both age out since their racing age will be 24 in 2022. No idea who will pick them up or may they'll go privateer.

Not the juiciest of rumours... but marcelo gutierrez doesn't seem to have had a red bull helmet in his possession in 2021

Ah... But who bought the round? Was it big money bragging or someone lying for a drink?

Greenland definitely on the syndicate (well Santa Cruz at least). Saw him riding one mid week at ponty last week.

Pretty sure he is semi retired now so that would make sense

So no DH races for Maes next year? Or will he just ride the high pivot Orbea Fury?

Florian Nicolai off from trek... Wondering who will replace him... And hopefully Pedro burns stays on the team

Yeah, TLD doesn't make a road helmet so my guess is its just a stand in. And no, riding road with a mtb helmet, regardless of visor, does not look ok haha.

Sounds like he will be doing a few DH races.

Another interesting thing we picked up from the press release is that Martin's downhill cameos are set to continue with Orbea. We'll wait and see if this means Orbea has a downhill bike in development or if Martin will be racing World Cups on a shorter travel bike as he did for GT this year.

Who else is changing sponsors on the EWS side of things? Martin Maes to Orbea, Evan Wall to Devinci. Maybe someone from the Kona team?
