    Well **** me.

    Begs the question what's been going on at Specialized to make one of the most prized names in Downhill run away?

    Assuming it's real of course.

    Does this mean that every second bike in the lift line will be a Nukeproof?

    If it means an end to the line of bikes with wobbly shock mounts, live in hope.

    Old news ;-) the real question is : Who's going to fill his spot !!! The rumor of Gwinny filling in is just plain silly but interesting none the less...

    Gwin just resigned with Trek for a few years. No chance on that.

    Yep no more demos in lift lines. All sessions and furys with the v10 crowd in there as well.

    Team rumors has been wrong in the past. Also Gwin jumping ship seems out of character... but who knows?

    Hill's possible new ride. It was designed in collaboration with CRC/Nukeproof team.

    No, but if they treated Hill anything like the way they treated Fairclough money won't have been the issue.

    Is there a interview or anything about the way that Brendog was treated? I was always wondering why he left but never looked into it.

    There was something in Dirt a while back.

    Basically he bust his knee and MonsterSpesh told him he either kept riding or didn't get paid at all.

    Que a year of bad results and an ever worsening injury. That's not a good way to treat an investment, given the injuries Hill's had riding the Demo it will be interesting to know if he was delivered the same ultimatum.

    sweet. now all the fan boys will be selling their 2012's and 2011's demos cheep. NEW BIKE BABY!

    Hunter was the main influence why I chose the demo as my next frame. All the wordcup fanboize went to a frenzy when Hill joined Spec. Sadly though he was not 100% during that time (remember the beer belly). And now all those same people act like they don't want their demos anymore is just plain fun, because Hill won't be on one next season. Hope, Hill tears up the track next season.
