Brosnan letting her buck on the double rock drop under the lift.

Troy Brosnan has kicked off silly season by announcing he will be staying on the Canyon Factory Racing for another three years. Brosnan first signed with the German brand at the inception of their downhill team back in 2017 and will now be continuing his relationship with them through to the end of the 2022 season.

bigquotesSo excited to say that I have signed a 3 year deal with Canyon to keep this amazing partnership rolling! Exciting times ahead!Troy Brosnan

There should be a podium step reserved for Troy Brosnan at each race. 4 on the plate and 4 on the box.

Troy joined the team as it began, moving from a well established Specialized program to what could have been seen as a risk on an unproven bike as the Sender made its World Cup debut. He soon put those worries to bed though and enjoyed a successful tenure with Canyon including his second-ever World Cup win at Vallnord in 2017, three consecutive top-three finishes in the World Cup overall and 13 podiums, an unmatched total over the past three years.
Troy Brosnan's Canyon Accolades: 2017-2019

World Cup wins: 1 (Vallnord, 2017)
World Cup podiums: 13
World Cup Overall finishes: 2nd (2017), 3rd (2018, 2019)
Other accolades: 5x Crankworx downhill wins, 2x Australian National Champion

Brosnan has won this even four years in a row now. Who will be the one to take him down next year

We currently have no further news on the movements of Troy's teammates, Mark Wallace and Kye A'Hern.

 I wanna see Troy, Danny and Laurie really put the heat on the frenchies next year!

 Agree! He deserves more wins that I'm sure will come in the near future.

 Will be interesting to see if Gwin can come back strong, too!

 I always feel gutted for Troy because his consistency should have his name go down as one of the greats of DH, but history is never that kind.

 How has he only got one win. In my head it feels like he’s got about ten when I think back over some of his race runs.

 @thenotoriousmic: he’s won 2 but only 1 in the time he’s been on Canyon....

 I hope it's a close top 5 between Pierron, Greenland, Goat, Hart and Brosnan. All are superb to watch. Dont get excited watching Bruni or Gwin.

 @thenotoriousmic: He's got a brace. Fort William 2014 (Specialized) & Andorra 2017 (Canyon). But yeah, pretty mad he's won so few when he's consistently up there and laying down some absolute scorchers.

 @ImAManCheetah88: Thumbs down is the new thumbs up. Neg props on a Gwin post generally means you’re right LOL. Love the guy to death and absolutely respect his classiness, but suddenly we aren’t allowed to say anything that’s not super duper positive about him? Grow a pair people.

 I'm just stoked to see a guy stick around on a brand for a while. I have to think it devalues the relationship for both when a guy hops around and/or gets clipped.

 That's 13 in the past 3 years with Canyon. Many more in total for Troy. It would be nice to see his consistency rewarded with a few more wins or an overall.

 I would love to know what his contract details are. Lets go Troy, like many major sports, make your contract details public so riders understand what you are worth and can better represent themselves during contractual negotiations.

 @brianbuell have you heard the vitalmtb podcast with Bruni interviewing Brosnan, that’s the exact thing they discussed last. Worth a listen if you haven’t heard it.

 I want to see these guys talking about their compensation / salaries - keeping it secret ultimately amounts to lower pay for racers and we need our top guys to make BIG bucks for the sport to turn the corner toward the mainstream. Gwinny's transparency into his contract details was a good thing in my opinion - hoping that puts the pressure on the industry to step it up and get some better pay for guys currently renegotiating!

 I want to know what you get. To the dollar please. I feel entitled to know that. And judge afterwards.

 Troy mentioned in his Bruni interview that he wishes salaries weres public info but they are under NDAs, etc. Troy wants transparency and Loic seemed to as well. The riders discuss details amongst themselves.

 Consistently not winning. Consistently 'just' getting beaten. Sorry Troy.

 It is always so close for him. A really great rider. I hope he find some seconds on the tracks next year then he will definitely win some races

 It's crazy he's come top-three overall three times in three years while only winning one race. I guess he's always going at 98% vs others going at 110% - doesn't always work out for the others, but whoever makes it down will take the top spot on the day
  • 3 0
 I wonder is he too happy to come second and third? Like you can see how annoyed Bruni, Pierron, Gwin, Hart, etc are when they don't win. It sickens them and you can see the anger in some of their race runs. They go hell for leather and seem to be on the edge, while Troy always seems very in control. Maybe Troy needs to become a sorer loser....

 Back on specialized it always seems to me that Troy was a little too loose...either took second or third or crashed out. Does seem as though that's how you have to ride to win, but maybe he decided it's better (and less painful) to finish more consistently even if it means giving up a few places.
  • 4 0
 Always so close and yet so far. I wish he could win more often in the future. He's really a nice guy and has a great riding style.

 Canyon NEEDS to make a video of him and Van der Poel shredding. Would be the best publicity.

 With both XC and dh bikes- that would be a good montage

 Good dude and so fast. Super nice - I've got a photo with my mate and Troy in a bakery at the bottom of Waterfall Gully where he was hitting shuttle runs with his mum. Hilarious timing on that run in.

 Troy has been soooooo close to winning so many times! Here’s to hoping he stands on the top of the podium in 2020 tup

 One of, if not the MOST consistent riders out there. Hope to see him take some wins next year!! He's always just so close.

 After his Bruni convo I'd love to see what he's being paid. I hope it's a lot. I'm guess around 100K a year which isn't enough.

 Troy likes to do things in 3s... ????

Just jokes, love following Troy. Amazing rider.

Let's hope there's 3, 2 or 1 next season.
