GT BMX race team riders Joey Bradford and Eric Rupe made a shop visit this week to Retro City Cycles in Orlando, FL. Shop manager Dano was happy to have the guys stop in to say hi, sign autographs, hand out stickers and just hang out. The shop isn’t much of a BMX race shop, but that just gave the team the opportunity to bring Dano up to speed on what the BMX world up to these days. Rupe had his personal race bike on hand to show off and let people see just how cool the 2009 line of GT race bikes are. The visit was a real success, as the team looks forward to visiting more GT dealers as the season goes on. Thanks Dano and Jessica G.
The GT team sponsors include: Kenda, Shimano, Fly Racing, Sun Rims, SDG, Champion System, O’GIO, SNAP Products.

The GT BMX race team—Randy Stumpfhauser, Mike Day, and Eric Rupe--was in the Lancaster, CA this week for the ABA So Cal Nationals and paid a visit today to The Block Shop. The shop visit was the best visit so far in 2008, as Rich Bartlett, the shop owner and manager for over 5 years, showed the GT guys what a truly pro looking BMX shop is all about. The GT guys had a chance to meet a lot of customers who showed up for the widely publicized GT Promo. Rich had the event promo’d all week on the local alternative rock station “100.1 The Edge”. The multiple promo spots during the week, announced the visit of Eric, Randy and Mike, brought quite a few listeners out to meet the pros. The station had a live feed right from the shop from 3pm til 6pm. Eric, Randy and Mike all did live interviews with “Fat Head” the DJ that went really well. Both the shop and GT got really good plugs from the radio spots.
Both Mike and Randy also did news paper interviews as well. The GT guys gave the fans autographed team posters, some GT stickers and GT bike catalogs. Stumpfhauser, Day, and Rupe even had their personal race bikes on hand to show off to the fans. The visit was a total success. Thanks Rich!

Upload your face and a friend's to let them know who's going down! Get Started
Was a busy week for me. I headed to Vegas for Interbike and Nora Cup.
Was real fun. I was stoked because End Search won Video of the Year.
It was the first year Nora Cup had that award, so it was awesome to be a
part of that. I checked out the new GT line, and it was looking tip
top! I heard a lot of good things about it too.
Right now I'm in Cali. Two of my friends passed away in a plane crash a
week ago, so I'm out here for their funeral.
