    NATHAN RENNIE back ... on INTENSE??!!

    Hi
    Heard Rennie is going back to WC...and will be riding with Intense bikes + Sram Parts. This would be really awesome having a big boy on the track , smashing it with an m9!

    I think he should have to ride a 951 and either confirm or put to rest the cracking mythology of that bike.

    Natural progression here....Yeti....Morewood....Santa Cruz.....Intense!

    Give the man an M9 and watch the magic!

    From www.nathanrennie.com

    Hi Everyone
    As rumours have been flying, I just wanted to set the record straight. After poor finishes in the first few World Cup races in 2009, I decided to return home so that I can get as fit as possible for the World Championships in Canberra, Australia. Still 7th in the World!!! My luck was not on my side in 2009, with having big crashes that have opened old injuries, it's the best thing to do at this time. Also I have been working under a lot of pressure from sponsors and working in an uncomfortable environment.
    I decided to take this year off as well, sell my condo unit, and build a house. That's right! - build a house. Just call me "Stampy the Brickies labourer." It's not official yet, but I am looking to get back onto the Downhill Mountain Bike circuit in 2011.
    I just want to thank all the people, not only my sponsors, for understanding my position, and hope to see you all in 2011.
    Cheers, Nathan Rennie

    Sorry but Rennie is a big whiney yobbo. Dd anyone read his interview in Decline Magazine? He cried and whined about being relegated to second string rider at Santa Cruz after Minnaar joined the team. Gee, could it have had something to do with poor form? Rennie couldn't handle being on a team with better riders who achieved results and instead of blaming himself he blamed his team mates and sponsors. Yes he was attest rider once .........once.

    Thought you would all like to know that on a the weekend just gone, over here in Australia I watched Rennie smash out a few runs at a state race on a 951. It was great to see him riding DH again after some time off.

    For sure
    I asked Stik on RM and he said the process is now on, no details except that Kovarik will probably be on Intense next year

    Some guy at Dirt website said the parties are not allowed to make any official statements now cause the current contract between Intense and CRC expires at the end of the year

    Pretty sure Rennie pulled some solid results even with Minaar on the team. (Off the top of my head 2nd in Canberra?) Its a pretty well known fact that Rennie got F*cked over by the morewood team he was on, I'm sure you would be pissed too if you were in his position, so his rant there is justified. BTW Decline is a horrible magazine

    Rennie only blamed himself for mistakes and poor results. I don't think he whined, although I read about some internal conflict within the Syndicate between him and Minaar a while ago
