It has been one of the hotter 2020 race rumours and now it has become a reality. FMD Racing will be leaving Transition Bikes for 2020.
For anyone following the 2020 team news, rumours that FMD Racing was planning to leave Transition Bikes has been one of the most talked-about since the end of the season.
Transition and FMD Racing have been a team for the past 4 years, and in that time there has been huge success. To see Tahnee and Kaos on anything but a Transition will be a little odd, but that’s exactly what we’re going to see.
FMD Racing posted this open letter to Transition Bikes on their Instagram confirming the split.
An Open ❤️ Letter to @transitionbikesFMD Racing
When we realised we were moving away, we went through a full spectrum of emotion. We seem to be caught between being proud of everything we have accomplished together and the life we will embark on without you. You have been in our lives for the past four years – you weren’t just our frame supplier but the sponsor that knew us best – you were family.
We feel so blessed that you were in our lives and we are concerned if we can hit the highs without you – we sure will try ;-). Even though we are moving into a new relationship, we will still pick up the phone or text and email. Although we will miss the times when we would meet, drink and be merry.
We have so many memories together – good, bad, and ugly. Tahnée’s first World Cup win, Junior podiums, Youth podiums, Whip-Off titles. You were there through the injuries and social media. Your support has given us so much over the years that we do not know how to thank you. We built a bike, we took it beyond 11 and we partied – boy did we party… you helped shape us into the team we are today and for that we THANK YOU.
We are now entering into a new relationship and the excitement that comes with it (rest assured we will continue to party ;-)). Remember, there are people out there that need you, you truly inspire them to be better riders from the fun bikes you create.
Please continue to cheer for us

The big question now is where will FMD Racing be headed to? The big money is on Canyon but Trek has also been rumoured too. Keep posted for more 2020 Team Rumours.
