2019 Racing Rumors
Well, there are a couple of interesting women's names on there, like Pauline Ferrand Prevot in the Canyon DH team, and also Noga Korem in the GT. Interesting that Cecile is not listed on the Commencal team.
Nope. Husband and wife, just like the White Stripes...
It's a bit confusing with Enduro riders...Damien Oton not listed in Unior\Devinci too
The list published here now only deals with the teams registered for the UCI World Cup, nothing to do with the EWS. Some teams register some of their EWS riders for the UCI World Cup as well, in case they plan to or may want to do a race or two.
In 2021 - he turns 40. Wish I see him little bit longer at WC races, especially fort william 2023 championship. GOAT

Greg and the longest contract of history?
it's the kind of commitment to a rider from a team the sport needs. One of the reasons santa cruz is so well respected. When they hire someone, they're in it for the long haul.
I commented a while ago about this, saw a group of cannondale/GT employees riding at an east coast bike park, most of them on either the new habit or the GT fury but one guy was riding a blacked out prototype DH bike that looked like a super beefed up version of the new habit
There is a Cannondale DH bike coming.I was told this by one of the guys from Cannondale while at Corebike. They didn't say when but it's in the works
The UCI has made public the full list of teams registered for 2019, no major surprises left in here but we've pulled out the 30 most noteworthy teams as pertains to DH/gravity, see below. There's a another junior joining Vali Holl on SRAM TLD Racing, and the YT MOB has registered a fairly unknown rider next to Angel Suarez. Other than that, it's all been covered thoroughly in this thread already!
Best of luck Chris @insync
From AG’s latest story on the gram, looks to be thebig ‘S’ on the headtube of her bike
Spec announcement must be imminent now, can see Anneke riding that seafoam color sworks stumpy on gwins story. Wonder what team she will be on though with the spec factory team already announced. A solo program maybe?
It's official, Anneke Beerten is on her own program with support from Specialized and many more! Full announcement below:
“Specialized is pumped to partner with Anneke Beerten again! Her joyful energy, positive attitude, speed and style on the MTB, and fearlessness to huck-it are just a few of the many reasons why. We look forward to a great season of having fun on bikes with Anneke, on & off the race course.” – Fiona Swartz | Specialized USA MarketingI am super excited about all the brands that I’ll get to work with this year through the program that I’ve put together for myself! It’s great to be back on Specialized and to work with a full list of brands who I believe in, and brands who believe in me and support my goals as an athlete and female in the industry. With the support of Specialized and other rad sponsors like, DT- Swiss, Alpinestars, Crankbrothers, Arnicare, Evoc, Rylo, Oakley, I’ve been able to plan my year around both racing and giving back to the sport through content creation to visually share my passion, and by coaching, women and kids. In 2019 you’ll see me at the full Crankworx Series, Sea Otter Classic, and some CES & EWS races. I’m excited to also announce that I will be involved with the kids pumptrack clinic at the Crankworx Kidsworx event in Rotorua, coaching a Women Shred clinic in Arkansas, and will be an active ambassadors for The Specialized Foundation to get more kids on bikes, and a lot more! This year I’m most excited to sharing my passion and to get more people stoked on riding bikes.
“We could not be more excited to bring Anneke onboard with The Specialized Foundation and collaborate on some exciting projects this year. With her incredible success as an Enduro racer and a lifelong passion for riding bikes that started at age three, we cannot think of anyone better to inspire the next generation of riders and racers.” – Kaylee Blevins| Research and Programs Coordinator | The Specialized FoundationI can’t thank everyone enough for their support and believing in my dreams and vision.
