We speculated previously that Cody Kelley might be heading to Yeti along with Jared Graves. However, with Graves leaving Specialized, that’s created a space – which Kelley will be filling.
The American rider, who rode for Alchemy last year and ranked 14th overall at the EWS in 2019 and 2018, makes his return to Specialized, along with picking up Fox as another sponsor. He was first with Specialized back in 2010.
STOKED to tell you guys I’m part of the @iamspecialized_mtb family again! These guys ignited my mountain bike career with their support from the very beginning of my time in this industry back in 2010. So it feels great to be part of the team once again! Ohhh yeah! This bike….. yeah it’s something else 😍 Thanks for bringing me back on board @iamspecialized 🤘🏻👊🏻 Let’s go racing!
Will Specialized be hoping to bring some experience to their EWS team and boost their rankings? And is Cody there to help bring on the younger riders on the – very young, Cody’s hardly a Vet – team? He’ll certainly be hoping to top his 7th place finish at Northstar last year. And, last year the team was on Ohlins – so is that about to change, or is Cody doing his own thing… maybe there are more signings to come?
