UPDATE! Race rumors: who went who, who joined who


New Year, new you. This is what they say. The off-season has seen many changes and changes. Here is the inventory as it stands.

Below is our as simple as possible summary of the motions and racing rumors. No extended 50 page message board post on the discussion board. No slow loading Instagram integration. Straw wheat. Brass nails. Up to the point.

Shout out at Vital MTB’s legendary Team Rumors thread (unlike some outlets, we’re not going to pretend it’s not a very useful article to study) and Instagram’s search feature.

We’re going to break this down into three categories: completed trips, confirmed departures with suspicious destinations, and confirmed departures with no idea where they are headed.

Completed movements:
