Wide Open have been dropping photos of their latest team rider on Facebook and the Net over the last week and today I received an email announcing that Matt Scoles is back on the Wide Open programme. Here's the official word:
"Wide Open is stoked to announce that Matt Scoles has signed with Team Wide Open for the New Zealand summer. Matt has a long history with Wide Open and having him on the team for another year is great news. Matt is coming off a very strong World Cup season, finishing 16th overall and 15th at the World Championships. Matt will be riding the Turner DHR with full Wide Open build kit including Marzocchi, Gravity, Atomlab, FSA, ODI, Chris King, MRP and SDG. Expect to see Matt at all National rounds this year."
