Canyon are starting an International Enduro Team and along with two German riders and one French, Joe will be seen at all major enduro events over the summer. After a great summer racing enduro last year it's exciting times with a new set up for Joe in 2013.

In this video Joe tests his new Canyon Strive on the Isle of Tenerife

Stunning views in Tenerife

The Dudes of Hazzard Chiefs Liam Moynihan and Fergus Lamb have also signed for the German brand. You wouldn't want to split all the boys up. From now on Dudes ventures will have a strong Canyon presence and with all the usual banter. Watch out for a great summer of episodes - a movie, mega vision, and more.

Expect more news about the team (who could the french rider be?) soon.

Lots of love,

Joe and the Dudes

 He looked awkward and slow compared to a Five or a Patriot. I won't be watching Dudes of Hazzard anymore. -Rant over

 Point well made@dingus.
It won't stop me watching dudes of hazard just because he doesn't ride an orange bike.
  • + 2
 Its not just the fact he wont be on an orange five or likewise, but the fact he wont be on a bright pink bike that will be stranger!
  • + 1
 It's not just the fact he won't be riding an Orange - I think he rode better on them so therefore would win more races and have better seasons.
  • + 1
 What? Surely it's more to do with him adjusting to the bike if he is actually any slower at all, or simply your preference towards Orange bikes that is at play here?
  • + 4
 So you are judging the outcome of his season off the back of a short 1 minute video of him on a new bike? See my above comment.
  • + 1
 Indeed, it's already been read. Find ONE video even if it's less than a minute where he looks this awkward on an Orange bike. Don't get me wrong here I like Canyon bikes a lot - think they're amazingly specced for the price - only ever ridden a Torque which was a little small so can't say if they ride well and yes I do prefer Orange bikes - I ride one which inevitably will play on which I prefer. He's an awesome rider regardless but look how many people have commented on how he's riding in this video. I think you have taken this to heart a little to much.

 SO..... sam hill rides for Nukeproof now, does that mean that if i liked specialized bikes i would abstain from watching sammy H rip it up? no it does not...... pull yerself together, a bike is a bike and Barnes still shreds!

 Wouldn't like to comment - haven't watched any video's of Hill riding a NP. I'm generally either working or riding rather than watching video's just happened to watch this one as Joe never seems to disappoint.

 It's been mentioned by some that Joe Barnes is not looking as fast on the Canyon. Maybe he's smoother ? maybe he's not ?
He's on a new bike on a strange dry looking schlomp , lot to get used to there.
I'm betting he'll be a force to be reckoned with on the Enduro series.

 The riding was a little mild for Joe I thought... New geometry probably takes a bit of getting used to. The 3 Orange bikes we are all used to seeing him hammer are all very similar. That's the Five, 160 and the Patriot. I'm sure he will be hammering these Canyon bikes very soon also.
  • + 1
 if i ever gave up my Patriot i think i would be gutted,i hope he keep's his stashed in the back of his garage for when he hit's the hard stuff,good luck to him though we all need to make a living,i personally need my Orange's though but i hope he does well with Canyon.
  • + 2
 I have to agree, as peel says probably just the new bikes geo etc but he doesnt look as planted on the canyon. Canyons are nice but im sorry its not a scratch on a patriot/5. All the best to him tho, sad to see him leave Orange.
  • + 2
 not nice to see him go off orange sucks in a way and he will have to redo his van! gonna be weird seeing canyon on it instead of orange. but hey ad least Hanna is still on orange! btw he has sold all his bikes!!!

 Honestly hadnt heard of canyon til now. Nice lookin bikes, though the ridin does look slightly awkward... new geometry... new terrain..He'll be back to pro style soon if he's not already!! Smile

 ....or maybe it's the tires... doesn't seem to have the lean on... I dunno. I don't get featured in vids, so who am I to say? lol

 been ridding CAYNON bikes for last 12 month(got 2 of them). not a bike on the market pound for pound. orange over rated and over PRICED!!
  • + 3
 I can't dispute the fact that you can buy a canyon for under £2000 and get the same spec as a £3500 five, but I don't think you can say orange bikes are over rated. I loved mine every second of riding it. I'd have kept it if I wasn't still growing! But I agree on the price. But you can't say there over ratted, they ride as good as any bike I've ever ridden before or since and still stands at the best bike I've Owend.
  • + 1
 Canyon bikes are more competitively price than Orange bikes for sure. The reason for this is that Canyon frames are made in the far east and Orange aluminium frames (not sure about their new Carbon road bike frame) are made in Halifax UK. But they are far from over rated in my humble opinion.

 Hurray! I'm glad that they signed with a company that makes pretty bikes. Not quite the Banshee I was hoping for after the last vid, but I'm still pleased with Canyon.

 Sad. Orange had a lot of charism. Canyon has a lot of money to spend.

 It would be interesting to see him riding some of the trails we saw him ride the Orange bikes on for comparison.
