There's been a fair bit of chatter about this on the forums, but with Gwin moving over to Trek and with no sign of Andrew Neethling on their 2011 team sheet it was just a matter of time.

Here's what they say:

Neethling, a consistent top-10 World Cup finisher and winner of the 2010 U.S. Open, joins Hart and two-time U.S. downhill champion Duncan Riffle to give Giant a powerful punch in the downhill discipline.

“Giant has always had a great racing heritage and I look forward to being part of it," Neethling said. “I’ve always looked up to the team and felt they had superb bikes. I know I will have the bikes, support and environment to reach all my racing goals." For more info click HERE.
