Title: 2016 Team Rumours
Post by: Mendipmammoth on Sep 01, 2015, 13:57
The season's not even done yet and the rumours are flying round....

Who has contracts that have run out? Who's gonna be a hot purchase?

Heard some interesting rumours about a certain George and Canyon?!

A little bird tells me that the syndicate has been speaking to Loic Bruni. Apparently Rob Roskopp has a "gotta catch them all" policy when it comes to world champions...

Athertons to Canyon?  Could be, or is it Cube...?

Fabien Barel to head up an epic new Canyon Downhill team and an epic budget.

Joe Barnes signs for Canyon for a further year.

Movings on in the Syndicate.  Could it be the end of the line on racing for some big guns?

Sounds like the Scott team is staying as is.

KTM don't have a DH bike ready yet as far as I know.  2017 though!


Word on the vine is FMD to Canyon bikes.   Is everyone just on Canyon in 2016!?


MS Mondraker up in the air with still no word on the Marzocchi sale.  Innes is heading elsewhere!

Looks like a French flag, but it's also a Lorry/Laurie heading towards a Canyon.

The rumour of all rumours though.  Aaron Gwin.

A few media outlets have released stories which aren't official, Gwin hasn't denied them but has said that we should wait for the real thing.

So Gwin on YT Industries along with KTM and Audi is the main rumour.  Some sites have also said that he will be moving from Troy Lee to Fly Racing for his kit.
