Peat, Minnaar and Bryceland stay with Santa Cruz
The Santa Cruz Syndicate Team will not recruit new pilots this year and for at least the next three years as Greg Minnaar (World Champion 2012) and Josh Bryceland have extended their contracts until the end of 2015 and Steve Peat until 2018.
In fact, the real novelty for this team will be participating in some rounds of the new cup "Enduro World Series" which begins May 19 at Punta Ala in Italy. Some words from Santa Cruz's boss, Rob Roskopp:
Given all the scandals in cycling recently, I think everyone in downhill can feel proud of what they've built... all in spite of the poor direction our sport's had from the top. The Enduro World Series gives gravity racing a fresh opportunity to develop a self-sustaining model, free from the sort of illogical constraints the World Cup faced. So for that reason, Santa Cruz will be an Official Supporter of the series.
