Whitley's playing hard ball! We don't need to see the dirty laundry between concerned parties hung out in public.

Hopefully level heads will prevail.

wow. that certainly won't change the legal standpoint and is petty as can be. weak sauce martin. still a letter of intent not a contract.

youtube says this was for a documentary. think gwin reacted different because he was on video?

Gwin states in the video he's signing a letter of intent, not a contract. I've gotta say that Martin Whiteley is just making himself look desperate by putting this all out in public and trying to shame Gwin. Somebody ought to take away Whiteley's laptop until he can calm himself down.

So it goes
Redbull Spezialiced has Gwin (as he is a redbull rider).
Monster Chainreaction Cycles has Sam Hill and can no longer keep the finnish Redbull rider Matti Lehikoinen...

Thanks a lot ballaholyk84, missed it at first.

Well Aaron should feel pretty good, that document clearly says "Letter of intent", as well as "confidential", so if Mr Whitley wants to go spreading shit around, one for him: I don't see how putting it online for everybody (even on a video) is confidential at all. Besides still being a letter of intent. Also, shame on him, this should all be done preferently a la Athertons to GT or Sam to CRC, wishing each other well and no hard feelings (at least apparent), or at the very least behind closed doors, not this.

Never been Gwinn's biggest fan (kind of runined the Wold Cup for me dominating it so much, I like it better a bit more open, even if he had won at the end), but he looks like a nice person to me, no need to do this to him.

Hey, it's been a while since the last cartoon, and after hearing both "I'll sue you" Whiteley and Gwinn both sort of call the out for going a bit too far, does anyone else think they may have actually been told to stop with them or something?

This tweet is from Rich Houseman's development squad (formerly on Trek and now on Specialized just like his high profile client) and should give some insight on Gwinny's drivetrain for 2013...

Brayton on Hope's program. Looks like he fancied a Specialized for his choice of frame.

Gwin confirmed SRAM drivetrain but Fox suspension today. A rare combination. Apart from Lapierre I can't think of any other teams running that set-up.

Here's your 2013 UCI Elite MTB team list. Click on "Specialized Racing DH" and "Chain Reaction Cycles Nukeproof" to see the TLD factory threads for this year. Looks slick, Stik.

Madison Saracen looks great, too.

i can see TLD didnt have overall control of the design of the CRC kit. sad.
Spesh rags look hot, Madison easily the best though. Will see how it looks with the athletes all clad in it.

I think it's about time to revive this thread... I'm sure there won't be quite the spectacular shake up we had with last year's teams.

I just read the news that Yeti is not in the WC circuit this year. Where is Cam Cole going???
