    He will sign with Intense. Stik will come out retirement and wrench for him and an as yet unnamed semi-good pro motocrosser. My guess would be Tucker Hibbert.

    The team will be kitted up with USA logo'ed bikes, kits and pit bikes. Jennifer Gabrielli and Leigh Donovan will both come out of retirement to race the US National circuit and the term "MILF" will be used far too much.

    Wasn't he training with Mick Hannah in the off-season last year? Makes some sense that he'd form contacts at GT.

    Little rough on Rennie aren't ya?

    The guy took some time off and is back digging riding/racing bikes again, no one ever said he was out on some mission for global domination, hell....hes only racing the Aussie series.

    I don't think he needs you telling him he is like an old jug of milk, let the guy enjoy riding bikes would ya?

    Isn't he like 27?

    Rennie is riding for the Aussie Intense distributor, not Factory Intense from what I've heard anyway. Be good to see the big man back on the WC scene in the future.

    We're still on the world-famous RideMonkey, right? I've only been here for a short time but I was under the impression that downhill is Serious Business(TM) at all times!

    Does GT still have their product team in Lake Forest? Pretty close to Temecula.

    As for Yeti, it must be the benjamins, or lack thereof. Shame.

    woah woah woah, what kind of heinous idea is enjoying riding bikes. If you're enjoying it get off the trails and let the whiners do their thing.

    10 to Giant. They will replace Riffle with Gwin and actually start a legit team with Hart and Rando.

    That's just what they do - for the last 20 years. Get almost famous with Yeti and then move to the money.

    And we all know how much money Intense has. Heck, they hired Stick.
