Out with the old, in with the new January 7, 2009

Posted by multisport man in Mountain Biking, Racing.

I’d be surprised if any mountain biker out there never heard of the Trek Volkswagen team. It was home to some of the best national and regional riders – Jeremiah Bishop, Chris Eatough, Susan Haywood, and Lea Davison – just to name a few.

Well at the last minute, VW pulled out of their contract or whatever, meaning no Trek VW team for 2009! It’s crazy! Top pros are found without jobs!

This was an unexpected outcome of the big economic slump!

But good news – there’s an interesting new road team called Ten Speed Drive / Ellsworth. Funny thing, it’s a road team. I’m familiar with the Ellsworth full-suspension mountain bikes, they are sweet.

But Ellsworth actually make a road bike too!!

And the Ten Speed Drive team is doing cool stuff for the environment, so that’s cool.
