Today, the Clif Pro team announced that they will be riding on Specialized after over a dozen years with Orbea. The long-standing team, formerly called the Luna Pro Team, signed with Orbea in 2006.

Argentinian National Champion Sofia Gomez Villafane joins returning racers Katerina Nash, Catharine Pendrel, Russell Finsterwald and Ben Sonntag on the Clif Pro Team for 2020.

Hannah Finchamp and Haley Batten won't be racing in the Clif Pro Team colours in 2020, although Clif says Batten will remain a part of the Clif family despite "moving on from the Clif Pro Team in pursuit of her World Cup ambitions." The U23 rider had a fantastic 2019 season, including a win in Nove Mesto.

 Unrelated but have Pinkbike been asked to pull the Danny Hart / BPW video because of all the negative comments it got due to how poor editing etc was and they didn't wsnteing staying up there in the news with all the terrible feedback?

 The editing itself wasn't great but it was mainly the 360 degree headcam shots and the transitions between frames that made it very hard to watch. The rest of the shots were pretty good imo.

 Good news, or at least a step in the right direction, a team coming together instead of falling apart......
