Most of the big news has already been announced but there are some more moves to dig into as well including 2017 junior World Champ Melanie Chappaz to The Brigade, former Cube racer Gaetan Vige to FRF Race Company and Jackson Goldstone to the Miranda Factory Team. Dig in and find the gold!

 Looks like the Norco DH team is pulling double duty for XC. I feel like that won't go well...

 Is Moir returning to the DH side this year? Or is EWS in the same category as DH?
  • 2 0
 EWS isn't under the UCI so it won't show here. I imagine anyone who may want to race DH would need to be listed, it looks likely he will do at least one world cup
  • 1 0
 @melonhead1145: EWS is in a partnership with UCI
  • 1 0
 @melonhead1145: yep like Martin Maes.

 Would've just been easier and had a bazillion less "news" stories if they just posted this list in the first place Wink

 2021 rumour.... there is no 2021! Why can the UCI not be forward thinking and have a southern hemisphere season rather than their Europe biased racing.
