bigquotesIt is time to move on to new challenges, with a lot of pity that I leave behind an excellent brand in which I am proud to be Portuguese and to have represented for 6 years. I just have to thank you for these long years of excellent moments.

Many thanks to all Miranda Bike Parts staff, especially João Miranda, and also the Miranda Factory Racing team for all their support.

As for the future, I still won't be able to reveal, soon everyone will know. Thanks.
Jose Borges

 I feel like it would be nice if all these athlete/ sponsor relations were brought back in one roundup, especially if you got to see where they went. It would make it a lot easier to compare teams and see how they’ve changed season to season.
