    It appears that Josh Bryceland was misrepresented by Claudio Caluori -

    Page 13 of VitalMTB Rumours.

    Sooo - whose sugary beverage is Rat Boy flying the flag for - is he Red Bull also??

    Agreed. Tis a shame Devinci is currently off the table, because ya know, a Troy signature edition Troy would be pretty cool.

    given that he's back to back EWS champ and now fully sponsored by red bull, he's likely to stay enduro. but of anyone on the enduro realm that could switch back to DH it's him.

    I just think he should do World Champs, no need to do the entire WC grind.

    He would have been the world's least recommended proctologist. Yelp rating of half a star.

    Joe smith off Chain Reaction, looks like the team will be leaving DH and focussing on enduro, with Hill leading the team/possibly being a gang of one...

    His retirement from CRC was announced on pinkbike and vital (maybe just in the team rumours thread there) and the rest is speculation.

    I do know that CRC was just bought out by their main UK competitor, have made lots of redundancies and it wouldn't make sense that they're funding both DH and enduro. Since their marquee rider is switching to enduro, it looks like DH is getting the chop

    Whether true or not, Nigel's quote on PB says he was "gutted" (of course) that Joe was leaving but that he had a great opportunity with another team. Almost sounds like Joe left CRC, not that he was dumped or that he is retiring...

    * Grumpy Team Mechanic - udi
    * Team Engineer/Sram Shrill - mtg

    * Team Drunk - yours truly
    * Crash Test Dummy - rotating position filled with various DH forum monkeys

    * Fork Sponsor - Rux
    * Helmet Sponsor - Colt 45
    * Wheel Sponsor - Crank Bros
