Ian Bibby, Jimmy Mac, Ian Wilkinson.....

Postby JamLala » Sun Nov 04, 2012 10:29 am

....who are they riding for next year? Too lazy to keep searching and I must have missed it somewhere but I don't believe Bibby/Wilko have been signed by Net App, and Jimmy Mac not in Rapha Condor Sharps plans for 2013....

i thought Jimmy Mac was listed to ride for them next year? as for the other two, they both had some good wins this year so expect them to get on a good team somewhere

Jimmy Mac is down for Rapha, hadn't spotted that when I read the same article yesterday, doh!
Bibby had a good year I thought and so am surprised that he's not 'obviously' on the list, Andy Tennant too of course.....

i think bibbys results came too late in the season, they had already decided the team mid season apparently..

Both of the Ian's suffered from illness at various parts of the season and by their own standards had disappointing seasons given the very high standards Endura riders set. Picked up late on but overall, if only 4 spots for Brits, then Thwaites, Downing, Rowsell & McEvoy were the right picks for me based on British and overseas UCI performances...particularly as 3 of them are only 22-23 years old.

Wow - I can't believe Blain missed out in the merger. I know he is "old", but he is quality: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/blain-f ... gh-in-2013

Nice to see him remaining in the UK though...

Great news for Bibby there. They should be able to throw some dosh at the team too.

Hopefully, the ex Endura lads will be spread about the other teams to bring balance to proceedings. Maybe UK Youth will pick some up.
While acknowledging the quality of the riders Endura recruited this year, and their ability to ride at the top of their game and as a team, their total dominance led to predictability. If the teams are evened out then uncertainty of outcome will return, and the racing should be more interesting.

I thought Madison Genesis were just going to be an under-23 team, seems like they've broadened the scope of it. Looks like a good squad so far, I'm more interested in the bikes though. :)

It's more than a rumour, they're going to ride frame made from Reynolds 953. Genesis said in September that they were expecting prototypes in October but I haven't seen any further info since then.

I'm really looking forward to these. Maybe a pro bike I'd actually buy!

A team I half-expect to burst into a rousing chorus of 'Pass the Dutchie' at an opportune moment during the Tour Series

Curious about what Maggy's up to next year

Backstedt as of last week still seemed unsure about where he would be riding. He tweeted something about maybe aiming too high.

Bialoblocki is a good signing for UK Youth.
