They say good things come to those who wait and, nearly a fortnight after everyone else, here's the Syndicate's team video from Lourdes.

Of course, this isn't just a few cobbled together clips and interview though, it has the usual Syndicate mark of quality with the story of the V10 29 development, behind the scenes action and Marshy in a dress.

The Syndicate said: "It's a new season with new recruits! Go behind the scenes during the undercover testing of the 29er V10, catch Greg and Marshy in their formal dresses, and see what happens when the lads hit Lourdes and race day goes from picture perfect to muddy nightmare in a heartbeat.

"Greg Minnaar, Luca Shaw, and Loris Vergier head to Lourdes, France for the first round of the UCI Downhill World Cup, but first, they spend some time in Italy testing the latest development of the Santa Cruz V10—the bike rolling on 29-inch wheels."
