2018 Silly Season, Round Two

It's the off-season, and it's time for bench racing. Things are a little firmed up this time around. Heck, there are even a few guesses thrown  in there. Yes, some of it will inevitably prove itself wrong.

This time around it's updated with more teams, new numbers, some new gear deals, extra mechanics, and a few rider switches. As always, if you've got info to add, a legit team logo, or anything to help fill in the blanks, send an email to GuyB.


You'll find a whole bunch more Twitter (T) and Instagram (I) links for riders. Oh, and feel free to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
