Usually by now there are press releases and leaks about team shuffles. Is everyone slow off the block this off-season or am I just looking in the wrong places?

I'd really like to know if the rumors about Ratboy are true. Is he really giving up racing for good? I've seen nothing official about it anywhere, but the rumors are everywhere.

Ride, don't slide.

Rob Warner said it on the World Champs broadcast (I heard it, and went back to make sure I had heard it correctly), he said he had talked to Ratboy that morning to confirm it, and Ratboy had confirmed that he would not be racing the World Cup circuit next season.

So, unless it's and elaborate prank, I would take him at his word.

Yeah, I heard that as well. Claudio also said on the broadcast that it was because he wanted to reduce his carbon footprint. That's all well and good, but he's currently instagramming his roadtrip across america, so I don't necessarily believe all I hear…

I'm going to take it with a grain of salt until Ratboy himself announces officially.

Ride, don't slide.

So the Rat is taking time off racing…or he has been doing so-so and not taking things serious enough and the Syndicate are taking on a new direction.

Vergier is headed somewhere.

and I thought that Taylor (Trek) is also headed somewhere

wait and see I guess.

Thought that myself. Sounds like the carbon footprint thing was a smokescreen for the real reason whatever it is

Then again Rat's followers are legion, and he brings punk rock credit to a brand. My bet is Santa Cruz knew what they were on about.

Syndicate seems very savvy with whom they sponsor.

I know he was a big reason I tuned in. Would love to see him come back, with a vengeance. The man's got the raw talent and potential to take it all.
