 Good luck this year Neko, will be rooting for you and Luca both! Doesn't matter where he goes, he will continue to shred, and be a great embassador for the sport.

 It's rad that Neko has been really pushing the DH Scene in the Appalachian South. My hope is that with his help we get more trails, more parks and more bikes in the Anniston-to-Boone corridor.

 Balfa comeback!

 I heard he also tried an Ellsworth and thought it was the BEST DAMN bike he's ever ridden. He'll be on the Oskar Blues/Ellsworth Team.

 Careful. Waki may come here to protect the good name of Ellsworth. The Polish hero from Sweden will comment you into oblivion. Until you lose the will to visit this site again.

 I think this has gotta be a good move for both him and Scott, he is a great rider but never seemed to find his form on the Gambler. Hopefully he can find a team and a bike that works better for him and Scott can find someone to fit their team too.
  • + 19
 He had punctures and injuries, nothing much to do with the frame geometry or suspension curve. He qualified 4th on the Gambler at Lourdes. Now team wise, a switch may help change focus, motivations, comraderie, etc. Mentally sometimes a change for change's sake pans out for the refreshment it gives, sometimes it backfires and is worse. All the best to Neko, Claudio and Brendog.

 Pivot w/ Kerr......?

 YT without a doubt. I was at Baileys back in November and overheard some local ripper kids form Brevard who know Neko personally. They informed me he was leaving Scott, had been in constant contact with Gwin and would be riding for YT in 2017. I'll take their word for it.
  • + 5
 Neko's new park windrock is supposedly going to have YTs for rentals eventually so my bet is on YT
  • + 5
 He left on his own terms, going to YT.

 Currently considering contract offers from Mongoose and Diamondback. This could be hudge.
