Some would say that Laurie was on the up and up this past season, but it's downhill we're talking about so 'All the way down' sounded more appropriate to us!

UCI junior MTB Downhill World Cup, Fort William - 2nd

 do not get your hopes up. They are one of the reasons that they will cut the field in elite down from 80.

 He is still riding for Trek until the 31 of December. No idea for next year. A team with YT would be awesome !

 yeah when you see this kind of video at the end of the year you can smell the "farewell video": a new team may be coming !! it's crazy how when the Atherthons got a new bike sponsor, they push everyone out of it Big Grin

 Bit harsh saying they "push" everyone else out Razz Sure there might not be much left in the budget for anyone else but they already get enough unfairly bad press (well Gee does)

 He still is currently riding under their name so it's 'has', when the 1st of Jan comes, then it becomes 'was'...

 but trek world racing has been formally disbanded... the other riders on the team have announced their new teams and are riding that kit already... difficult to be sponsored by a team that doesn't exist anymore...
  • 1 0
 The contracts go until the end of 2015, so they all still technically ride for Trek and the athertons technically still ride for GT until 1st Jan 2016
