The Complete Guide to the 2022 World Cup DH Teams

Feb 2, 2022 at 10:23
by Alicia Leggett  


We've seen almost more off-season action this year with team changes than we saw during the entire 2020 racing season, and the rumor mill has been buzzing pretty consistently since December. Now that the UCI has released its downhill team lists, we can take a look at all the team moves and try to anticipate what the 2022 World Cup race season might bring.


555 Raaw Gravity Racing
Luke Williamson, Ryan Brannen, Douglas Goodwill, KJ Sharp

555 Gravity Racing made its debut last year riding Commencals through a shop deal, but now Raaw has signed on to support the budding team in the upcoming season. That suggests that Raaw has a downhill bike in the works. With the new bike and the team's addition of reigning national champion KJ Sharp, it looks to be an exciting year ahead.

Banshee Racing Brigade
Adam Rojcek, Robin Novotny, Simon Maurer, Hannes Lehmann, Leo Freund

Adam Rojcek and Robin Novotny return to the Banshee Racing Brigade for another year, and this time the two riders will be joined by German riders Simon Maurer and Hannes Lehmann and Austrian Leo Freund. It'll be Leo's first time racing World Cups as he joins the junior ranks, while the rest of the team will be racing in the elites.
Adam Rojcek started out slow but kept pushing in the final and came in 7th



Canyon Collective Factory Team
Troy Brosnan, Jack Moir, Mark Wallace, Jakob Jewett, Luca Shaw

The Canyon Collective Factory Team is the first of several Canyon Collective teams. It remains pretty similar to last year, but without Kye A'Hern or Loris Revelli. Kye has moved on to the NS Bikes UR Team, while Loris will remain with Canyon on the Canyon Collective Pirelli team. The big addition here is Luca Shaw, over from the Syndicate. With Jack Moir on the roster but dominating in the EWS, we're unlikely to see much of him at the World Cups, but he may make an appearance.



Canyon Collective FMD
Tahnee Seagrave, Kaos Seagrave, Dennis Luffman, Phoebe Gale

The Seagraves’ branch of the Canyon Collective will stay identical to 2021, with British up-and-comer Phoebe Gale now having completed her first World Cup season. The team's other young talent, Dennis Luffman, will be moving up to elites for 2022. Tahnee has had a few health problems throughout the off-season but is on track to be healthy for the race season, and Kaos will likely bring his signature style to some of the races as well.
Phoebe Gale had some issues on her run not least riding far off libne to avoid a crash in the lower rocks but it was still enough for third.



Canyon Collective Pirelli
Henri Kiefer, Loris Revelli, Dante Silva, Antoine Pierron, Slawomir Lukasik

The Canyon Collective Pirelli is the latest Collective team to be announced and will serve as the development team for the Canyon Collective conglomerate. American Dante Silva, German Henri Kiefer, Italian Loris Revelli, and Frenchman Antoine Pierron will take on the World Cup races, plus perhaps Slawomir Lukasik, who hasn't confirmed his plans yet but will likely do some downhill races here and there alongside his EWS schedule.
Dante Silva on his way to third in junior men.



Commencal - Schwalbe
Lluis Buide Castello, Pau Menoyo Busquets

The Commencal 21 team has been replaced by Commencal - Schwalbe, but will remain an all-Spanish outfit. Pau Menoyo Busquets has come over from Commencal 21 and will be joined by Lluis Buide Castello and new management for the same-same-but-different Commencal program. It'll be Pau's first season in the elites after a successful junior year that included a win at Leogang. Lluis Buide Castello is coming in as a first-year junior.
Leogang s junior men winner Pau Menoyo Busquets had another strong ride today and will be third last down the hill tomorrow.



Commencal / 100%
Angel Suarez Alonso, Thomas Estaque, Hugo Frixtalon, Greg Williamson, Mille Johnset

Williamson, Estaque, and Frixtalon will remain on the Commencal / 100% team, which will grow even stronger with the addition of Angel Suarez Alonso and Mille Johnset. Angel had a remarkably strong season in 2021 with a podium finish in Snowshoe. Mille also took a podium in 2021 with a fourth place in Les Gets, and only finished outside of the top 10 at one race.



Commencal Les Orres
Lisa Baumann, Alizes Lassus, Jack Piercy, Antoine Vidal

What started as an enduro team led by the Ravanels has become a UCI-registered downhill team, too. Lisa Baumann recently made the jump from cross country to enduro and clinched the Swiss enduro national championship, signalling good things to come as she further crosses into gravity riding. She and Antoine Vidal will take on the elites, while Alizes Lassus and Jack Piercy will cut their teeth in the juniors.
COMMENCAL LES ORRES TEAM



Commencal / Muc-Off by Riding Addiction
Thibaut Daprela, Tristan Lemire, Hugo Marini, Myriam Nicole, Amaury Pierron, Gaetan Ruffin, Thibaut Ruffin

The wildly successful Commencal / Muc-Off team keeps all the same riders for 2022, plus Hugo Marini and Thibaut Ruffin. After proving himself at French and European events over the last several years, Marini will have the chance to step things up a few notches for his first year in the juniors. Team owner Thibaut Ruffin has been added to the rider list, so it looks like he'll continue playing a dual role of riding and managing. Despite a series of injuries and other setbacks, Thibaut Daprela, Amaury Pierron, and Myriam Nicole dominated in 2021 and they'll want to keep that momentum, minus the mishaps, going forward into 2022.
Myriam Nicole seemed to be on course for another big win before disaster struck in the lower rocks.



Continental Atherton
Rachel Atherton, Gee Atherton, Dan Atherton, Charlie Hatton, Andreas Kolb, Jim Monro, Dom Platt

Continental Atherton loses Mille Johnset for this season, but gains Jim Monro and Dom Platt, both of whom came up through the Atherton pipeline to the highest level. Dom delivered at national level races as part of the Atherton Academy in 2021, so he earned himself a spot on the Athertons' World Cup team. Jim joined the Athertons as part of the Dyfi / Hardline dig crew and earned himself a Hardline invite through his hard work on that front, and a standout race performance at Hardline showed that he has what it takes on the race course, too. Gee and Rachel are planning to return to racing this season, with Dan also on the roster, but likely still playing a supporting role.



Continental Nukeproof
Chris Cumming, Ronan Dunne

Irish riders Chris Cumming and Ronan Dunne will take on their second Elite season aboard Nukeproof frames once again. Ronan Dunne took the first Wyn TV Privateer of the Week in 2021 at Leogang after placing 29th, then broke the top 20 with a 17th in Les Gets, so we've excited to see what this small but mighty team can pull off in 2022.



Cube Factory Racing
Danny Hart, Max Hartenstern
The formidable pairing of Danny Hart and Max Hartenstern is back for another year. Danny Hart rode to consistent top-10 results aboard his new Cube in 2021 and looks set to keep the trend going. His up-and-coming teammate Max Hartenstern put down a surprise second place in Les Gets, a career-best so far, and seems slated for more.



Dorval AM Commencal
Camille Balanche, Baptiste Pierron, Monika Hrastnik, Benoit Coulanges, Florent Dalvet, Alix Francoz, Alec Beolet, Damien Desbrosses

Most of the Dorval AM Commencal team will return for 2022, even after some speculation that breakout rider Benoit Coulanges could leave for a larger team setup. The two new additions are Alec Beolet and Damien Desbrosses. Alec is a relatively unproven French teenager who will enter the season as a true dark horse to follow in the footsteps of Florent Dalvet and Alex Francoz who did the same last year, while Damien Desbrosses has a few World Cup races to his name but will have the opportunity to pick up some pace with an official team this season.
Benoit Coulanges out of the dark woods



Forbidden Synthesis Team
Connor Fearon, Magnus Manson

One of the bigger team moves this season was Connor Fearon's split from Kona after more than a decade - we never thought we'd see the day. Next up, Connor is heading the Forbidden Synthesis Team with Magnus Manson as his teammate on the downhill side of things. As Forbidden doesn't currently make a downhill bike, the team will reportedly start the season on Dreadnoughts with custom downhill links, but there's a downhill bike on the way, too.



Frameworks Racing
Neko Mulally, Colin Mulally

While we're on the topic of exciting team moves, Neko Mulally's decision to run a self-designed frame is one of the storylines we're most excited to watch this season. He'll be documenting the building process and his race experiences in a video series called Frameworks - check out the first episode if you haven't already.



Gen-S
Francescu Camoin, Estelle Charles, Allan Cooke, Kevin Miquel, Charles Murray, Sofia Wiedenroth, Izabela Yankova

Details are scarce about Specialized's latest team project, but Gen-S appears to be a new development team of sorts. While most of the riders listed on the team have historically focused on enduro, we expect some downhill race showings, especially with Izabela Yankova leading the charge. After dominating her field in 2021 as a first-year junior, Izabela will have more support than ever and a new ride to go even farther in 2022. Her times rivaled those of the elites last season. What can she do with more support and another year of training under her belt?
Izabella Yankova shutting down the junior womens show just one more time this time with 5 seconds to spare.



Giant Factory Off-Road Team
Remi Thirion, Matthew Sterling

Jacob Dickson has departed to MS Mondraker, leaving Remi Thirion and Matthew Sterling to carry the downhill division of the Giant Factory Off-Road Team. Remi Thirion had his most consistent season to date in 2021, with three top-10 finishes. He said previously that his goal was to place consistently in the top 10, and he seems to now have that goal within reach. Expect Matthew Sterling to keep moving up, too, after his first season in the elites.



GT Factory Racing
Wyn Masters, Noga Korem, Ethan Craik, Jess Blewitt, Ryan Pinkerton

GT bids goodbye to the Denim Destroyer and Martin Maes, but welcome Jess Blewitt and Ryan Pinkerton to GT Factory Racing. After a brutal crash at Snowshoe to end the season, Jess will want to get back up to speed as soon as possible, joined by fast Californian Ryan Pinkerton. Ethan Craik will make the jump to elites after showing his fast pace in the juniors, and Wyn and Noga will likely continue the EWS-WC combo campaign.
Spare a thought for rising star Jess Blewitt having such an awful crash at the last race after a brilliant season.



IJ Racing - Chiguiro Extremo
Rafael Gutierrez Villegas, Sebastian Holguin Villa, Alex Marin Trillo, Cristian Suarez

The separate teams known as IJ Racing / The Brigade and Chiguiro Extremo DH Team seem to have combined forces for 2022, with IJ Racing bringing Rafael Gutierrez and Alex Marin while Sebastian Holguin has joined from Chiguiro Extremo. Cristian Suarez is new this season, having raced mainly in the eastern United States and moving into his second year as a junior.
Alex Marin throwing shapes all over.



Intense Factory Racing
Aaron Gwin, Dakotah Norton, Seth Sherlock, Joe Breeden

Joe Breeden and Dakotah Norton are the additions to Intense Factory Racing this year after Neko Mulally's departure. Both continue to flirt with the top 10 while Seth Sherlock makes his way into the elites for a second year. Joe Breeden and Seth Sherlock went 1-2 at the Mt. Psychosis DH last fall, so the two have already stood on a podium together. We may see Aaron Gwin return to form this year, too, after a back injury sidelined him for much of 2021.
the youngsters might be all about the scrubs but the veterans like Gwin know that nothing beats a good speed tuck.



Kona SGR
Miranda Miller, Noah Hofmann

Kona SGR has lost Connor Fearon, but has kept its other two riders from last year, Miranda Miller and Noah Hofmann. Noah is a stylish young ripper who raced both junior downhill and EWS events in 2021. With Miranda Miller focusing on EWS racing for the foreseeable future and Kona appearing to focus on enduro rather than downhill bikes, we'll likely see plenty of enduro racing from the team, but their registration with the UCI bodes well for the downhill side of things.
The new womens World Champion.... you re looking at her. A solid run a punishing sprint and a sprinkling of good luck and Miranda Miller took gold.



Madison Saracen Factory Team
Matt Walker, Harry Molloy, Veronika Widmann, Jordan Williams

The Madison Saracen Factory Team remains unchanged from 2021. Don't fix what's working, hey? Matt Walker (the northern hemisphere one) didn't manage to maintain his rapid pace from 2020 last year so he will be on the hunt for some top results this season. Harry Molloy raced mainly national and continental events instead of World Cup in 2021, while Veronika Widmann continued her successful elite women's campaign and Jordan Williams managed to take the last two junior wins of the season at Snowshoe.
Jordan Williams seems to be getting on well with the track in Snowshoe and backed up his win a few days ago with a fastest qualifier.



MS Mondraker Team
Brook MacDonald, Eleonora Farina, Oliver Morris, Toby Meek, Jacob Dickson, Tuhoto Ariki Pene, David Trummer

Laurie Greenland, Thibaut Laly, and Yuki Kushima are out; Jacob Dickson, Tuhoto Ariki Pene, and David Trummer are in. The MS Mondraker Team is renewed for 2021 with returning riders Brook MacDonald, Eleonora Farina, and junior Toby Meek, plus a cohort of fresh faces. Oliver Morris is listed as a rider this year after coaching the team last season. After Jacob Dickson's brush with the top 20 in Leogang in 2021, he'll want to solidify his place there, Tuhoto Ariki Pene has been climbing the results sheet and may be able to break the top 10 this season, and David Trummer will likewise be working to keep himself in the top 10 and perhaps find the podium again after his career-best 2nd place at World Champs in 2020.



Norco Factory Team
Sam Blenkinsop, Henry Fitzgerald, Lucas Cruz, Elliot Jamieson, Gracey Hemstreet

The big addition to the Norco Factory Team is Gracey Hemstreet, a fast and stylish junior ripper from British Colombia who exploded onto the downhill and freeride scenes last year. Gracey collected a handful of podiums during her first World Cup season and we're excited to see what she can do next. Lucas Cruz, Henry Fitzgerald, and Elliot Jamieson will make up the rest of the team's Canadian cohort, with Sam Blenkinsop returning as the lone New Zealander.
Sam Blenkinsop s run wasn t what he was looking for but luckily he is a protected rider and will still go through to the finals



NS Bikes UR
Kye A'Hern, George Brannigan, Vanesa Petrovska

There's a full turnover this year for NS Bikes UR, with the Hannahs retired and Joe Breeden off to Intense. Now, it's Kye A'Hern, George Brannigan, and Vanesa Petrovska representing the New Zealand registered team. A'Hern and Brannigan have both put down several respectable results over the last few years and this team change may help them keep climbing the ranks, while their new teammate impressed us all last season when she would have placed 5th in the elites at Crankworx Innsbruck, so she's clearly one to watch as she begins her junior World Cup campaign.




Pivot Factory Racing
Bernard Kerr, Ed Masters, Matt Walker, Emilie Siegenthaler, Morgane Charre, Jenna Hastings

After putting herself on the map with a win at Crankworx this fall, Jenna Hastings has joined Pivot Factory Racing. She'll take on the World Cup rounds alongside the returning riders, probably minus Emilie Siegenthaler, who announced her retirement from World Cup racing last season despite appearing on the roster again for 2022. Morgane Charre continued her EWS success and will likely stay focused in that direction, though we could see her take on some downhill rounds, too.
Bernard Kerr loves a bit of Leogang and has found himself on the podium before.



Propain Factory Racing
Henry Kerr, Luke Meier-Smith, Remy Meier-Smith

George Brannigan has moved on from Propain, but the rest of the team will stay identical to the 2021 lineup. Luke Meier-Smith is proving to be a strong multi-discipline racer, with two top-20 results in his first elite year along with a U21 EWS win in La Thuile. His younger brother, Remy, stuck with just downhill in 2021 so it remains to be seen whether he'll follow in his brother's enduro footsteps, but regardless, both brothers have promise in either discipline. Henry Kerr also found himself into the top 20 in Maribor and will likely want to back up that performance in 2022.
Luke Meier-Smith getting buck in practice.



Propain Positive Supported by Vee
Phil Atwill, Athanasios Panagitsas, Sokratis Zotos

The Propain Positive is an evolution of Phil Atwill's "free racer" program from last season, which allowed Phil to help grow the Greek riding scene while taking on the World Cup races supported by Propain. This season, two young shredders have joined the team - Socratis Zotos, who had support from Propain last year, and Athanasios Panagitsas, who is brand new to the program.
Fun fact Phil Atwill cannot pencil even if he tries.



RockShox Trek Race Team
Vali Höll, Jamie Edmondson, Tegan Cruz

The RockShox Trek Race Team is back for 2022 but minus Ethan Shandro. Vali Holl got off to a rocky start in 2021, but proved she has the speed to win and is entering this year as the reigning World Cup DH champion. Time and racing will have to tell whether she's figured out how to fully harness her speed. Jamie Edmondson had a successful first year in the elites and had an even more successful U21 EWS season, having won more races than not. Tegan Cruz is another one to watch this year entering his first junior season and already having proven himself at the Canadian level.
Vali Holl on top once again in qualifying. But can she keep it together when it counts in the final Grabbing the rainbow stripes sure would be a great way to take her first elite win



Santa Cruz Syndicate
Greg Minnaar, Nina Hoffmann, Laurie Greenland, Jackson Goldstone

The Santa Cruz Syndicate put the keyboard sleuths to work early this year when it posted its cryptic social media clues to the new team. Ultimately, it announced that Nina Hoffmann, Laurie Greenland, and Jackson Goldstone would be added to form the largest ever World Cup Syndicate roster. Minnaar will stay right where he's been, which makes sense considering he claimed yet another World Champs victory in 2021, while Jackson Goldstone brings immense promise, Laurie Greenland is as consistent a podium threat as ever, and Nina Hoffmann becomes the team's first female rider.
Jackson Goldstone on his way to winning the junior men s race



Scott Downhill Factory
Marine Cabirou, Brendan Fairclough, Dean Lucas, Florent Payet, Dylan Levesque

Dylan Levesque hails from France and is the latest addition to the Scott Downhill Factory roster. He's made it happen as a privateer, but now he'll reap the benefits of his work as he lands on a factory team. Marine Cabirou has been recovering from a broken back, but is on the upswing and will likely start the season in form. The rest of the team appears ready to pick up right where they left off, gunning for the top spots once again.



Specialized Gravity
Loic Bruni, Finn Iles, Christopher Grice

Specialized Gravity is staying consistent, with the same lineup as 2020 and 2021. All three fast riders have shown fast pace - Loic at the pointy end of the elites, Finn as a junior turned elite threat, and Christopher Grice as a junior who will now move up to the top level. Expect more of the same from this trio.
Another top contender down Finn Iles.



Trek Factory Racing DH
Loris Vergier, Reece Wilson, Kade Edwards, Charlie Harrison

New year, same team. The four Trek downhill riders rode to great success in 2021, with Loris Vergier finishing third overall for the season, Reece Wilson taking his first World Cup win, Charlie Harrison taking eighth at the first Snowshoe race, and Kade Edwards taking ninth in Les Gets. If the Trek team just keeps doing what it's doing, things will look pretty good.
Needless to say Loris Vergier is one to watch for the big W as confirmed by a top 5 TT today.



Unior Sinter Factory Racing
Jure Zabjek, Zak Gomilscek

Unior Sinter Factory Racing remains the same as in 2021, an all-Slovenian team following Unior's split from Devinci. It remains to be seen whether the team will have a frame sponsor for this season, but the riders nonetheless put together some strong results in 2021. It would be great to see them find more support moving forward.
19th for Jure Zabjek



YT Racing Dudes
Oisin O’Callaghan, Erik Irmisch, Johann Potgeiter

The team formerly known as the Mob has rebranded as something a bit more down-to-earth, with Oisin O'Callaghan staying but David Trummer and Dakotah Norton being replaced by Erik Irmisch of Germany and Johann Potgeiter of South Africa. Oisin is one to watch this season as he makes the jump to the elites after an impressive stint in the juniors. We may also see Erik Irmisch and Johann Potgeiter find new pace as they move from the privateer life to the team setup.
Uncharacteristic result for Oisin O Callaghan coming into second place. The Junior Men s battle is alive and well.

 @Maxipedia: No rush. Back in the days I received Dirt Magazine every two months so during racing season, that implied every issue covered a few WC stops (DH and 4X). And I only watched the videos when the Earthed videos landed. I'm still alive so some slight delay doesn't kill you. However, I expect the race reports will remain on the public website and the more in depth stuff will be behind a paywall. Which is fine, I'm getting my in depth articles in Cranked and the Misspent Summers books. I also hope Eskapee will become more active again. From what I understand they have James McKnight and Mike Rose (Eskapee, Dirt Mag) helping them too now so the alternatives are there. I don't mind paying for journalism but then I'm expecting a bit more than what Beta seems to offer.

 @calmWAKI: Nah, the whole grim thing is long overdue. It may have looked wild back when it started but after that it was just a lot of talk whilst other brands were actually doing. Alutech soon enough built their Armageddon bike (alutech-cycles.com/cms/tag/armageddon) just like other brands were taking longer bikes to the WC races too. By the time Pinkbike actually brings a Grim bike to the races it doesn't even stand out anymore. It's fine though. PB is all about talks, that's what it is for. They'll never be able to realize a product faster than companies who do that for a living. Plus of course, taking it to the WC series is a huge commitment as it implies they'll have to bring the product to the market within a year.

 @PaulinhoCascavel, @calmWAKI:

UCI general rule 1.3.006 (see full text below) says that a product must be either a) commercially available or b) a prototype in final development stages with commercialization occurring within a year of the product's first use in UCI competition.

I think the grey area in the UCI rule is that a manufacturer could use a prototype if they have *plans* to bring a product to market within a year but isn't obligated (by contract or otherwise) to actually bring it to market. Like @vinay said, it's still a big commitment but seems like the only consequence of not bringing a product to market is that the manufacturer just can't use it in UCI competition after the prototype status expires.


§ 3 Commercialisation
1.3.006 Equipment shall be of a type that is sold for use by anyone practicing cycling as a sport. Any equipment in development phase and not yet available for sale (prototype) must be subject of an authorisation request to the UCI Equipment Unit before its use. Authorisation will be granted only for equipment which is in the final stage of development and for which commercialisation will take place no later than 12 months after the first use in competition. The manufacturer may request a single prolongation of the prototype status if justified by the relevant reasons.

When assessing a request for use of equipment which is not yet available for sale, the UCI Equipment Unit will pay particular attention to the safety of the equipment which will be submitted to it for authorisation.

The use of equipment designed especially for the attainment of a particular performance (record or other) shall not be authorised.

Upon expiry of the authorised period of use of a prototype (equipment not yet available for sale), any item of equipment must be commercially available in order to be used in cycling events. The requirement of commercial availability shall be understood as equipment having to be available through a publicly available order system (whether with manufacturer, distributor or retailer). Upon an order being placed, the order shall be confirmed within 30 days and the relevant equipment shall be made available for delivery within a further 90-day deadline. In addition, the retail price of the equipment shall be publicly advertised, shall not render the equipment de facto unavailable to the general public and shall not unreasonably exceed the market value for equipment of a similar standard.

Any equipment which is not commercially available and is not authorised (not authorised by UCI Equipment Unit or authorised period expired), may not be used in cycling events governed by the UCI Regulations. Any such unauthorised use of equipment may be sanctioned by disqualification of results obtained when using the equipment and/or a fine ranging from CHF 5’000 to 100’000.

Probably just as well there's a workaround for this bit.

 @PaulinhoCascavel: Yeah I think it is a more recent rule introduced well after the Honda bike. More than a few rules were introduced after the era of these bikes. Not soo sure about the loophole as @kbeutin mentioned. Does it indeed work like that? If so, does that imply that they may not be able to race the same bike the next season, but they can just come up with a different prototype? If there are no other consequences, it kind of defies the rule in that more than a few teams are constantly developing so they won't be racing last season's bike anyway. That said, it may actually be the how it is intended. That you either race the production bike or when you want to go through several iterations through several seasons, you can do that too. You just can't build the elusive mysterious superbike and then keep it just for yourself the next couple of seasons.

Either way, indeed if Pivot is willing to produce their version of the Grim bike then that will probably solve this.

Does that mean if i order a dh bike more then the manufacturer has to get it to me within 90 days? No one will be racing this year if that’s the rule
  • 1 1
 @CM999: No, just that at least someone receives it within that timespan. It would be impossible to realize if demand is extremely high, as it is now.
  • 2 0
 @CM999: They obviously didn't envisage the current situation when they put that rule in place. I'd assume they just aren't enforcing it, as you say there'd be no races this year if they were.
I guess Neko has had to get authorisation from the UCI to run a prototype, the same for Isak Leivsson last year.
  • 1 0
 @CM999: Athertons established their company in 2019 (www.pinkbike.com/news/athertons-launch-atherton-bikes-with-robot-bikes-founders-and-dragons-den-investor.html). I assume that their first UCI race was Maribor WCDH on 27 April 2019. Per the UCI rule 1.3.006, they would've been allowed to race those prototypes until 27 April 2020. At that time, they'd need to start selling the bike or apply for a one-time extension to the deadline.

I'm guessing that the UCI became very flexible at that point due to Covid and may have allowed for longer grace periods, multiple extension requests, and/or a general relaxation of the commercialization rule. As @commental pointed out, strict enforcement of the "30 day confirmation, 90 day delivery" part of that rule would've eliminated most/all of the World Cup manufacturers anyway.

The Athertons officially launched their consumer sales January 2022 (www.pinkbike.com/news/atherton-bikes-launch-direct-to-consumer-website-sales.html). So, for the 2022 DH season, the Athertons will be racing on a bike that is "of a type that is sold for use by anyone practicing cycling as a sport" and, therefore, allowed to continue racing on their bike.

For Neko, we can assume that the UCI has approved his prototype for use in competition since he's officially registered on a team for this season. Assuming he starts at Round #1 in Lourdes, Neko will have until 26 March 2023 (not counting any extensions) to start selling a frame similar to the one he'll race in 2022 or he won't be able to race on that frame until it is available to the public. That's my understanding of the rule as it's written, at least.
  • 2 0
 @vinay: The recent example I have in my mind is Cannondale and the two-shock downhill bike (www.pinkbike.com/news/cannondale-dh-bike-maribor-world-cup-dh-2019.html); still not available for sale close to 3 years after its first race as a prototype and no overt consequence other than the team not racing (or not being allowed to race?) this year.

Maybe there's extra scrutiny on your application if you jump from one prototype to another in the next season, maybe a requirement that the second prototype has to be X% different than the first prototype, maybe a probationary period where you can't apply for a second prototype after not commercializing the first...it's not to say there aren't consequences within the UCI for racing a prototype and then not commercializing it, just that they aren't explicitly outlined in 1.3.006.

Turns out it's not as simple as race bike 2021-» production 2022 is the impression I got - thanks gang for the info, now I don't have to 'go read'.

But you had to come and be a dick about me being curious and I felt the need to 'try' to joke about it.
I'm sorry if you are sensible to the suicide thing...it's just a joke, geezz...but well, maybe I don't know enough about it and I shouldn't wait for somebody to do my research for me and go read or something....

And, for the record, being called a f*cking idiot doesn't even bother me, because coming from the like of you it's like getting a compliment. Thanks man!

 That section about YT Racing Dudes is just plain wrong. It's not a "rebrand" of the Mob. The racing dudes have been around longer than the Mob and both teams have existed in parallel for the last few years.

YT has used the team as a vehicle for their non-WC racers and factory test crew (Erik Irmisch). David Trummer was on that team before he joined the mob. Now they are simply using it as a transitional team for Oisin before bringing back the mob next year or so.

 I see the paywall just came crashing down. Aside from the fact Im not paying for content I can find elsewhere for free, the quality of the journalism needs to improve dramatically for it to have financial value. All the predictions about the paywall came true. Do they not realise they irony of calling it 'Beta'. Because it definitely isn't an Alpha effort.
  • 2 0
 I believe BETA is what many of the previous staff from BIKE magazine created after BIKE was shut down by its parent company. I am guessing they called it Beta because it is essentially the second life of BIKE mag. BIKE was known for high quality photography and stories, typically at a level above pinkbike. It looks like a subscription to Beta, like BIKE mag, gets you a print version of the magazine. It also gets you access to the website articles. Outside now owns both pinkbike and Beta, so pinkbike appears to includes headlines from select Beta articles, which requires the subscription. For those who miss their BIKE mag subscription, a Beta magazine subscription is a decent idea I suppose.

Dunno...seems to be the unsaid story of the new year... hadn't heard of any of the new riders and I'm sure they rage but - doesn't seem like lining up more podiums.
