Conor Macfarlane wanted to be just like me. He too left Knolly and is now riding Intense. He too loves the Marzocchi! OK - all kidding aside, it's cool that Intense picked up a relevant free-rider to fill the gap left by Lopes. Fair trade, I'd say. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/conor-macfarlane-intense-cycles-press-release.html There have been a ton of riders changing teams and thus changing bikes this year. Hard to keep up. Which moves were your biggest surprise, biggest disappointment or best stoke?
