In Steve Matthes’ most recent podcast on Racer X Canada he sat down with JGR MX’s Jeremy Albrecht, who mentioned that they’ll have a third rider on their squad for the outdoor season.

We know they’re running a first-class operation out of the Gibbs Racing shop in North Carolina, so who’s your guess on who the new rider might be?

The only other clue we've heard is that the rider was capable of using gear from all the team's sponsors...Yamaha, Oakley, and Troy Lee Designs. Start eliminating riders that have conflicts with gear, goggle, and bike deals, and the list starts getting really small, really fast.

Sean Hamblin checked in over on Motodrive after a couple members mentioned that they'd seen him on a Yamaha recently and said, "It's awesome that some of you guys want me to be out there and on a good team, but dont start jumping to any conclusions with me riding a Yamaha. GL was coming out to Florida and wanted me to come with and he bought a few bikes before we left, and that's where me riding a YZ has come from. Yes, I have been riding a fair bit and feeling good on the bike. I'm just getting myself in the best shape possible so that if some good opportunities come up then I will be more than prepared."

Another possibility seems like it might be last year's privateer surprise from the outdoor season, Gavin Gracyk. One thing's for sure, whoever ends up in that spot is going to get some first-class equipment and support.
