This may be a silly question...please feel free to tell me so...but what happens to the Pro Team bikes (MTB and road) at the end of the season? Do they get sold, given to sponsors, become riders daily hacks, or stripped down for parts?

Some certainly get sold...Martin Whitely was off loading the old Trek bikes not hat long ago.

Judging by some of the pro garages you see, some people hang on to their bikes.

Try the 13 Degrees website.

I'm on the mailing list, so get a list of the stuff that they're selling each month.

No worries at all. The list of stuff for sale ranges from ex team stuff, to brand new excess components.

Me too. I attempted to ride Cannock Chase today but had to a and on it because the snow was too deep. It was almost up to my hubs pretty all the way along the bit I braved.
