Neko officially off IFR
Wonder if he'll continue on with a WC program or do something more at the national level. Will also be interesting to see if someone else takes his spot. Seems like a pretty big operation to just have Gwin, who has missed a lot of races with injury and generally doesn't do a ton of races, and Seth Sherlock.

You'll find out what Neko is doing tomorrow.

Team rumours used to be fun.
You open Pinkbike towards the end of the year now and it seems like there are 20 new sponsor farewell announcements every few days. Half of them from folk you've never even heard of or have no interest in. Next week it'll be the same with new sponsorship announcements. It's become a fucking clichéd yawnfest .

Neko, Dak, Luca and Eliot on Team USA split into a North American and international component?
That would be RAD.

With the huge increase in bike sales from COVID mania, it would be cool to see companies putting more $ into factory race teams and not cutting them a la YT.

The Syndicate should be pretty sick next year.
Two World Champs, a pinner from GB, and a bad ass female.

So awesome and so old skool. Bringing DH racing back to its roots.

Foes, Turner, Mtn Cycle, SWD, Lenz, even Intense back in the day. The DH field used to be littered with small US builders.
Now it's mostly overseas plastic, with some over seas aluminum.

It would be awesome if this was the start of a new trend.
