Surprising that there has been no announcement but it seems Jack Moir is now riding Canyon for the Collective!
Hopefully he gets the new Sender with the updated linkage. The guys who run the rental bikes at Maydena told me they had no end of problems with the bushings and rear ends in their Senders.

Might have something to do with letting people loose with high pressure washers too.
luckily the Sender I hired was pretty new but the bb still felt notchy

The current senders run igus bushings so pressure washers shouldn't matter. Lack of proper grease ports on the other hand.

Ah gotcha. But can’t ever see bulk mud, a random punter and a gurney ever being a good thing for a bike.

Anything starting with XC is signal for us to ignore it.
XCO: XC Olympic...refers to the format.
XCC: XC criterium maybe? Can’t recall. There’s an XCM (marathon) as well.

Just googled. XCC is a ‘fast paced’ relatively new short course XC race format.

I kinda did. He was super competitive a couple of years ago, but it clashed with the World Cup too much. I like it.

He’s still going to squeeze in the WC’s where he can.
I think he’s more competitive in Enduro, and I reckon he does too.
