    Sam Dale to Madison-Saracen with Manon Carpenter? (Orange is doubtful and Nukeproof's not technically a UK brand is it?)

    I think the shorter guy in the picture is Mark, so not necessarily picking up a junior rider. Perhaps a taller one? :D

    dang, there's always one that takes the bait, and attempts to go for the hook line and sinker. Well done Flip! jeez man.

    I'm just saying they won't be replacing their demos with morewoods.

    Ahhhh, that makes sense. So then it's Couscous + Polygon + United Ride.

    The "big" question now is, has/will Specialized extended contract with Sam Hill (current expires end '12), or will he end up somwhere else. (or, is Monster still title sponsor of the team)?
