Considering downhillers are
inveterate misbehavers – it’s all part of the image – the recent antics of Rob Warner
and Myles Rockwell must have been pretty bad…
Giant Global Team Manager, Johan Lammerts has suspended two members of the Downhill
Rob Warner and American Myles Rockwell have been withdrawn from the first four World
Cup Downhill races as a response to Òuncooperative behaviorÓ during
a video shoot in Monterey, California.
The riders will be allowed to ride in national competitions and will participate
in local promotions and events but cannot compete on the world stage for some months.
"We work hard to get the best from our downhill and cross country riders in
everything the brand demands and it was disappointing to have this highly complex
shoot disrupted by two mavericks," complained Lammerts
"The guys are still part of the Giant team and we see this as a measured response
to the situation with which we were faced."
