 Missing that tooth somehow adds sex appeal.... Like she's vicious 110% of the time, all the time.

 Casey did actually knock out her front tooth not too long ago, so it could be actually missing in the photo

 yeah she knocked it out. Great news for Casey!! she's got so much talent and with a full factory backing from trek, she's going to destroy at whatever genre of riding she does. This is huge! congrats!!

 I love trying to tell whos genuinley excited for the team transfers, and whos just going through the professional motions. Katy, clearly very excited and fair play to her who wouldnt be. Casey brown has been on a world cup team before and perhaps the novelty has worn off a bit warranting just a sentance. Just my thoughts

 @drfunsocks they do have Rachel focusing on DH. The fact that she's on a factory team is huge for Casey. Once she gets tuned up for enduro, she'll be queen of crankworx again. There's 3 rounds, meaning 3 times the races and she races in pretty much every race. that's insane alone. She's been deserving of a factory sponsorship for a long time. super humble with tons of talent, experience and all around great individual.

 Well played Trek! Finally a bit team that has as strong a female presence on their team as male. Spec, GT, SC... or almost any other team out there - pay attention and do the same!

 True, T-Mo hadn't really a strong presence!! But I think it's cool to see the number of female riders increase! Even more when they are on the rise!

 Ok I'm getting confused. If Trek World Racing was dissolved and sponsored by GT now, and Atherton Racing is now riding Trek, then who are the members of Trek Factory Racing?? Is it a new team altogether?

 This is really ironic that this awesome bike you cannot buy in Europe in 2016 but only North America. You can buy only frame and full bikes only Remedy 27,5. So sad, seems European are too much conservative for 29"

Trek, get me Trek Remedy 29" available in Europe and I will buy it !!!

 Joining the existing riders of Rene Wildhaber (SUI) and Tracy Moseley (UK) will be Casey Brown (CAN), Katy Winton (UK), and Dan Atherton (UK). The experienced Rene and Katy will race a full schedule of Enduro World Series (EWS) events, with the rest of team joining for individual events. After dominating the women’s category for three seasons, Tracy will take a step back in 2016 to focus on select races. Dan Atherton will also participate in select EWS events, balancing responsibilities between the Enduro and Downhill teams. Casey will balance select EWS races with other disciplines.
