Rumour round up…

Jack Moir to YT (Also trying to employ a filmer for MoiMoi TV)

Veronika Widmann and Louise-Anne Ferguson to Nukeproof factory

Andi Kolb to Scott

Jesse Melamed to Canyon or Specialized or Starbucks

Jamie Edmondson to ?

Gracey Hemstreet to YT or Trek

New male rider to Pivot

Martin Whitely to Ghost

Meier Smith brothers to Giant

Ronan Dunne to Atherton (Poss Monster sponsorship?)

Jordan Williams to Specialized

Anymore I’ve missed???

 

 

 

I’m going to bet that Moir is going to pivot not YT. Might be a million miles wrong but it’s silly season so F-it. 

Bernard said in a recent podcast that jack would be his dream signing if he could sign anyone and that he’d make him race downhill again. Jack seems pretty set of focusing on enduro. Bernard also said pivot doesn’t have the money to go out and pay a top rider. They have to get younger folks to develop. All that said think don’t think Moir is a possibility there.

I’m sure in that podcast Kerr said he had signed another top ten rider. Moir didn’t get super money for his canyon deal so the pivot team may well be able to pay him.

Hi all, new here but thought I'd finally join Vital and throw my two pence in with something that goes completely against what the rumour mill has been saying for the past few months, BUT... I have it on very good authority that Kolb has re-signed with Atherton, rather than signing with Scott.

11/23/2022 6:04am

I can confirm after speaking with others members of the canyon collective team that Jack Moir ha signed with YT for the next season.

Apparently he will be on a very big wage and on a YT enduro team.

Nukeproof just posted a happy birthday status for Ronan Dunne, "wildest man of the World Cup circuit" and showed BF Goodrich logo in the snap from Hardline. Does it signal the end for the Continental partnership and a full factory team next year with Sam Hill and Ronan Dunne

BF Goodrich was one of the sponsors of hardline. They had BFG logos everywhere on the track and in the broadcast. 

I'll now be waiting for my 29x2.4 DH casing KO2's

Yes, of course, the only US bike brand is Pivot and to back up your assumption the only reason those greasy Europeans are allowed into the USA is if they ride for an American brand. Evil

I know there's a lot of other US brands lol

I mentioned Pivot for a few reasons. Because they're located in AZ which is pretty close to California relative to Austria. Bernard Kerr mentioned signing a top 10 rider. Because Kolb only really came into his own this past season he may be a bit more cost effective than some other riders, considering Pivot's maybe smaller budget compared to bigger brands. 

Also from Kolb's perspective, he'd maintain suspension and tire sponsors between the two teams, which I imagine would be attractive after this past season's results.

That could have been a possibility, but do you really think that he innocently framed the shot like that with the branches forming an almost-perfect Atherton logo ? image-20221124143338-1

Kolb was the hottest property in DH this off season, Athertons would have to of dug deep to sign him up again! Numerous teams were after him.

Not hard when you’ve got a millionaire who co owns the company.

Not to belittle you, but that can barely even be considered news at this point. There have been like five people in this very thread "confirming" Jack moving on to YT.

He has nothing to do with funding the race team.

On DH Goat will run to the top of the hill for one last season of racing down. 

Another sheep will come out of his braces to have his last big season. 

6 Maroon cows will be racing along side the newly discovered series. 

YT sign a group of riders after throwing around some big numbers but, it will never be a mob. There will be attacks, a friendly ghost and many more. 

One fast rider will leave a massive gap in a rocky mountain to create a canyon.

Conspiracy Theory:

Bernard Kerr's comments about signing a top 10 rider for Pivot refer to Pivot signing Bernard Kerr.

Scottish rider going to a England based team… could you consider pivot being a England based team? So it could be Henry Kerr going to pivot… or Williamson to Madison. Or Mikayla going to Atherton? 
UK rider going to specialized?? can’t be Ronan Dunne then.
