This week we’re also looking at Rocky Mountains partnership with Raceface for their EWS team. Not only this but the teams apparent (from the announcement video) decision to go with Rocky’s 29 offering the BC Edition (longer travel) Instinct. Last year saw the team run the 27.5 wheeled Altitude and ignore Rocky’s 180mm ‘Enduro’ beast the Slayer completely. Will they make the switch to 29″ wheels for this years series or are they going to be travelling with both options at their disposal to decide on a track by track basis?
