There have been no rumors of this, and it is not in the 2018 catalog. Given that disc brake parts still cost more than their caliper equivalents I would not hold out hope for this to happen for a couple years.

Nothing planned according to my friend who is a rep. An Allez Sprint disc would be an incredible technical crit bike.

Not trying to start a religious war...but why do you think disc brakes would help you in a technical crit?

Caveat emptor....I, and most of my teammates, race technical crits on an Allez Sprint.
