    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

    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)?
