October 3, 2006 8:48am

Although there are a couple months left in 2006, it’s already time to start looking ahead to the 2007 race season. In fact, you could get a preview of ’07 teams and riders at events such as the inaugural Jeremy McGrath Invitational, which is going off this weekend, as well as the Rockstar U.S. Open of SX, which is right around the corner on October 13-15.

So, with these off-season events coming up rather quickly, we will definitely see some riders jumping ship to other race teams in their quest to become a champion. Who is going where? Well, we compiled this updated list to give you readers a better idea of what to expect in 2007. Note, not everything on this list is set in stone; this is just a list that we compiled based on what we’ve heard.
