After the VPP patents ran out, Intense named their VPP "JS tuned" for marketing purposes (from 2016 on). The suspension system stayed heavily based on VPP.
Nope, the downward trajectory came from letting the lizards taking over and making the business decision to make carbon bikes in Asia instead of aluminum frames in the US. They gave one of the few things that made them stand out away: US production. At the same time, they were not longer able to quickly react to market demands. Their batch system of old allowed them to introduce changes fairly quickly, sometimes within a couple of months.

hasn't he technically been on spesh tires for a while? but just actually running them now? i swear he runs sharpie tires when its actually race day no?
in all press photos sure, but after his first three months on the team, it seems like all his riding shots and instagram shots haven't been trying to hide he runs Maxxis. this seems to imply he is actually riding and testing their tires now which if he leaves a start gate with them this season should be interesting

Fox has been doing nothing but adding riders to their roster this year--everywhere i look guys are dropping 100% and others for dharco and fox. if specialized got Loic to leave Fox it must have involved some serious money changing hands.

If Gee is as fast on course as he was at recovering from his last injuries then he’ll be unstoppable.
Still feel a bit sick thinking about him rag dolling down the mountain completely limp

Nice, Jenna Hastings confirmed on Pivot, Sammie G gone.

Don't know if she is still a Jr next year, but she's a ripper!
They still have Emilie on the roster too, maybe she will be mentoring Jenna?

Canyon has 8 teams registered.....:blink:
Commencal better step up their game, they are down to 6!
