My job in the Bicycle Industry started with a similar position that's available now at the same company: GT Bicycles. This position is based out of their USA office and worth checking out if you're shopping for a cool job. But beware, you might be stuck in the bicycle industry for the rest of your life. Position: Assistant Marketing Manager, GT Location: Wilton, CT. USA. Job Code: 1087
The GT team made their Vantastic Voyage down the east coast to Florida for warm weather, cool spots, fun parks, and Swamp Fest. It was a motley crew consisting of Brian Kachinsky, Albert Mercado, Dan Conway, Leandro Moreira, Jeff Ludwig, Kody Bricen and Jordan Grandinetti shredding all sorts of terrain and having an awesome time! "Come along on a Vantastic Voyage with GT Bikes' Brian Kachinsky, Albert Mercado, Dan Conway, Leandro Moreira, Jeff Ludwig, Kody Bricen and Jordan Grandinetti as they head to Florida with their final destination, Swamp Fest!
Brian Kachinsky meet up with his new French GT teammate Sullyvan Guaincêtre for a four day street mission in the city of Lyon. The spots looked amazing and Brian came through with his burly go for it style and he had some wild looking crashes—but thankfully he escaped any major injuries—and Sullyvan delivered with his super smooth tech style. Seeing their contrasting styles in the same video is pretty sick.
GT adds French shredder Sullyvan Guaincêtre to their roster. Johan Poyet, Freestyle Team Manager at Frenchys-Distribution, is pretty stoked on Sully’s move to GT Bicycles: "Sully fits greatly with GT BMX: he takes his riding seriously but keeps a huge part for the fun which matches very well with GT philosophy, fun is serious business. Sully surprised everybody with his edit during Sosh Urban Motion 4. He now lives in Montpellier, and his riding keeps on evolving . It is always a great pleasure to witness his creativity expressed through his tech and original lines."
Dan Conway goes all in for his ender section in GT's "Seriously Fun". Dan took some diggers while filming this section, but all those big rails, kinkers, hubbas, and ledge/rails stand no match for this savage.
Rob Wise made a brief hiatus from BMX pro late last year, but his section from GT's "Seriously Fun" DVD shows that Rob hasn't slowed down one bit. Going backwards up a wall rail is complete absurdity, and that over-grind on the wire!? Rob is an savage animal on the Bike and we were stoked to have him along on the GT Taiwan trip earlier this year. Rob only films bangers!
Nobody rides quite like Albert Mercado. Al has a casual swag in his riding that shines through even when he's doing odd-ball NBD maneuvers. Creativity, spot use, and one hell of an invert make every Albert Mercado section a good one, but this one is especially good. Filmed in California, Connecticut, and Taiwan.
