Must admit - have little interest in the Gwin Machine from here out. The charade of the past months has been blah at best, his embracing Theology and Religion now is clownish after this Video. The 'chief cornerstone' 'all loving' 'tolerant' who commands all his love tells him to use social media and cycling forums to adopt a stance against the Bishop of Rome. Get on with your own bad self Gwin, you deserve all the glory.

Wow. I'm not a big fan of religion and Gwin's shout outs at the finish line. But you're one up on me. Bishop of Rome? No wait, I don't even want to know. I just do without.

I am probably reading into this too much...but I think the fact that he said the bike he will be riding will be exactly the same as the production model suggests that it might be a company that doesn't currently (but will as of the announcement...obviously) have a DH bike in their range. No matter who he has ridden for he has generally made at least minor adjustments to the production model to create his ideal race bike. So, if it is a new bike, it would make sense that he essentially designed it, so that that he would not need to make any changes and thus the production model and gwin race model would be the same. Also, the big delay on the announcement suggests the same thing. It sounds like the contract is negotiated, they have agreed on terms, etc. etc. so whats the hold up? I am thinking it is because they want to get all the final design/graphic details perfect before it is unveiled once Gwin makes the announcement.

Hints in the video? Land Rover and Starbucks as sponsors. Notice that Thank You sign in the back? Flip that around and you have YT bikes. wink
