Athertons & GT trennen sich

Nach 4 Jahren trennen sich GT Bikes und das Atherton Racing Team.

GT bedanken sich mit diesem Farewell Clip, der die gemeinsame Zeit seit dem Start der Zusammenarbeit in 2012, mehr als 50 World Cup Podiums Plätzen, drei World Championchips und drei weiteren World Cup overall Titeln feiert. Wir sind gespant mit welchem Partner die Britische Familie in der nächsten Saison auf den World Cup Strecken unterwegs sein wird, die gerüchte im Internet deutet ja auf TREK WORLD RACING hin.

Hier kommen noch die Statements des Teams zu dem Split:

Team Director Dan Brown: “ I know I speak for all of us when I say how much we’ll miss working with the guys at GT, it’s been a hell of a ride.”

Dan Atherton: “I designed the Sanction to race and the team at GT supported me all the way. I’m stoked to have been part of the making of such a rad bike. We’ll all miss working with GT but we’re all about progressing our sport, change might be uncomfortable to think about but it’s what drives us forward, we wish the GT team the very best ”

Gee Atherton: “Massive thanks to GT for a great 4 years both on and off the bike, we achieved a lot together and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from them in the coming seasons.”

Rachel Atherton: “I just want to say a huge thank you to the company that carried me to 2 World Championships and 3 World Cup Overalls. GT opened my eyes to the women’s specific market, they designed my first ever women specific colourway and basically made me smile every time I rode my bike. Their support for all of us has been incredible and so GTbicycles will always have a special place in my heart; the memories that we created together will stay with me forever. Good luck guys.”
