Now it's the right time ! I know a lot of people have been waiting for this news letter for a long time! I have the pleasure and the honor to introduce my new bike sponsor!

The CG Racing Brigade is going to be pimped on Santa Cruz bikes. Thanks to Santa Cruz to trust in me and the Brigade for the future; I am happy and proud to ride the V10.

I know I am going to have all the keys in my hand to do a killer job. See you guys at the next event with my new bikes and other partners to celebrate some good moments with the Brigade. Special thanks to all the fans who support me by e-mails and on Facebook! As I say, The Brigade is coming!
-CG

"Santa Cruz Bicycles is very excited to be the frame supplier for Cedric Gracia's Racing Brigade. There are few riders who are competitive in multiple disciplines these days, especially one's that have a great attitude and personality such as Cedric. We look forward to helping Cedric achieve his goals".

 He is not on the syndicate. He's on the CG brigade or w/e. The syndicate has different sponsors like avid, crankbrothers, wtb, dt Swiss, etc.

 And being on a new bike doesn't make cg a better rider. Really, when was his last podium?

 I know he's not with the syndicate. But man oh man does Santa Cruz have an impressive list of DH riders. To have CG, Minnaar, Peat & Bryceland all on one bike really says something.

 so will this require a VIP pass to get into the SantaCruz Pub tent? you know the syndicate beers will flow over into the brigade tent for sure. sounds like a match made in heaven!

 what?? that's crazy. syndicate is getting all the good riders. soon enough they will only have themselves to compete against... but seriously, those new gloss powdercoat v10's look shiny!

 this just made the Santa Cruz race team so much better. Gracia is a champ, so much character. Funniest racer I have had the oppertunity to meet.

 He wont be racing alongside peaty Two different teams, just riding the same frames

 Look at the headset cap having "CG" on it..how cool..and so many sponsorships! Smile

Just wondering...why did he leave Commencal?
  • 2 1
 maybe for tetter money? and who wuld't wan't to be sponsored by sc?
  • 2 0
 He has a 3 year contract with Commencal and he chose not to renew it. He, like Barel wanted to have his own team.

 plus matatabunan kasi sya nang mga athertons eh...if i was cg i`d do the same thing, get out and find another sponsor.

 what a loss for commencal Frown
im guessing garcia will be pushing the driver 8s image
  • 1 3
 nah the v 10
  • 2 0
 well hell ride the v10 for dh but hes got a good image as a freerider, helped create the furious and would be a promoter of driver 8
  • 1 1
 To be honest his v10 looks pretty ugly in the blank red :/ Nice forks, stem and bars and love the personalized top cap but he needs some graphics and maybe a change of coulour.
What do you guys think?
  • 1 0
 i find the v-10 normal, nothin crazy but as someone said, its a training bike, just to get used to the feel of it. Knowing cedric, you will be able to see his v-10 from the top of the gate when you're at the bottom of the track Razz hes an... eccentric person and he likes to flash!

as for the top cap, it is the new cedric gracia headset signature series 1.bp.blogspot.com/_MKwUh9sgKE0/S1F3LVMEBbI/AAAAAAAAAe0/dbbyIJyKQaU/s1600/across-Cedric%2BGracia%2314C6C3%2B(3).jpg3 enjoy!
