Sounds like a fake info. That would leave SS with no well recognized international riders, well maybe except their new team rider - Sam Light.
Len10 became a kind of a Sling and Mystic trademark, imho they would overbid anyone else just to keep him inside. Heck, If someone said Slingshot I would answer Karolina Winkowska
, ok ok ....Lenten (well, maybe my answer would be fuel...) and only later I would think of Youri.
I have no secret insider info, just simple logic. But on the other hand who knows... Youri, Lewis leaving SS, Sam leaving Naish, a lot of rush in the market
