Honda announced at the weekend that the G Cross team will not be continuing in 2008.
The statement released by Honda doesn't really explain why the team has been disbanded, but thanks those that have helped to propel the group to the top of the downhill mountain bike world.
Honda were the first to show that the gearbox concept in a mountain bike was a viable option in racing conditions, and there was speculation as to whether the G-Cross would enter production. We expect it'll never hit the shops now.
We're waiting with anticipation as to which team will snap up the G Cross riders Greg Minnaar, Brendan Fairclough and Cyrille Kurtz.
