Pretty much my thoughts, but Iím thinking that Sworkz could be in the possibilities as well.

Still havenít seen Tebo post anything about leaving Tekno..

While all the other drivers have posted their leaving announcements and most have already posted their new sponsors.

Tebos out no question. I see no reason why they would keep him. They also wanted to cut him awhile back after a mountain bike injury.

He just posted on FB that he has 6 kits he needs to build, so I don't think he's out at Tekno...

He's still under contract with Tekno. That pic means nothing.

Couple things, those are probably customer kits that he builds. His contract with Tekno up at the end of this year. With the signing of Mafield as I predicted earlier there is no reason for them to keep Tebo on the payroll. Overall I think Tekno and him get along, I donít see any magical chemistry going on there and then of course they tried to get rid of him after the mountain bike injury couple years back.

Also, for those that are wondering he is not going back to Kyosho. They already have Lutz and do not have that kind of money to pay two top drivers.

S-Works or Mayako are about the only places he could realistically land.
