Len10 now riding Best!

Postby Tone » Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:45 am

Well I didn't see that coming?!

I wonder what his number was, Zoon was reported to get $230k

Imagine what they would have had to pay Len10!!!

Will the Best stigma be lifted finally?

There is no way zoon is getting 230k???

That makes no sense.

Youri does not get as much ! BS !

But looks like Best has to sell 2000 kites just to pay the team riders.
I hope it will work out for them. Always good when people push something!

You shouldn't judge a brand by the riders who leave the team but by the riders who join it. I'm sure SS will have announcements to make regarding team riders eventually.

Maybe SS doesn't see that teamriders are worth so much to match the Best offers.
I don't think SS has any problems, they just do numbers. Simple.
And the riders take what they can get...in this sport is not much money, so it is smart to change.
They risk too much any way, and don't get an according payment.

I am sure Best and SS will both do fine.

And there are companies without any international tour teamrider, like Flysurfer and Core...and I am sure businesswise they do really fine!

I stand, sort of corrected.

I imagine it was a healthy amount though.
