The phrase ‘the worst kept secret’ is overused, especially in mountain biking, but in this case it’s probably adequate.
I’m alluding to Josh Bryceland, of course, who confirmed he would not be racing in the World Cup series in 2017 this morning.

We can’t wait to see what’s next.
Plus he’s left us with a load of amazing memories from his career. We’ve followed Josh since we first gave him a cover in 2004 as a 14-year-old lad, through his rise as a junior talent up to one of the best riders out there today.
