Keegan Wright passed on Devinci's long-travel Spartan and instead, chose the lighter and more nimble Troy
for the EWS races in Rotorua and Tasmania. Wright said he wanted a bike that was snappier and easier to pump terrain with. Tasmania is definitely rowdy on a few stages, but Wright believes that if you nail the good lines and stay smooth, you can carry speed and get away with less travel. Get off line, however, and a short-travel bike will definitely become a handful. Keegan's aces in the hole are the Troy's 29-inch wheels, but the 140 -millimeter Troy is still a bit of a gamble for two of the most unpredictable courses in the EWS this season, Wright's confidence here is undeniable, though, which should trump any doubts..
