2017 downhill team list revealed

Here's how the 2017 grid shapes up

Well, it’s time to put the rumours to bed for another year as the official UCI team list for 2017 has been revealed.

The two big bit of news this year were the formation of Canyon Factory Downhill Team and a face-lifted Santa Cruz Syndicate, but there have been changes all across the board.

It’s great to see some teams picking up junior women as well. It’s a new category for the UCI this year and it will need as much support as possible.
