Name: Luis Brethauer Number in Rio: 572 Country: Germany Result: 15th
When was the point for you that you thought you had a good chance of going to the 2016Olympics in Rio? Luis Brethauer: Pretty much directly after the London Olympics I set myself the goal to qualify for Rio. But because of the injuries I had in the qualification years, sometimes I wasn’t really sure about my chances to actually represent Germany another time. But through the end of 2015 it started to look pretty good that I’ll get the one spot through the individual ranking.
Rival Racing Bicycles out of Brisbane Australia is excited to announce the opening of a USA office in Indianapolis IN to make the brand more readily available in the US market. Daniel Yujnovich, owner of Rival Racing, has teamed up with Ryan and Natarsha Birk of TMB BMX Consulting, to set up a USA based business and grow the brand in the USA market.
Ryan Birk stated, "After meeting with Daniel at this past USA BMX Grands and learning more about his brand and his vision for BMX race technology, I was very impressed with Rival and knew this was a brand I wanted to work with. I'm excited to be able to help Daniel grow his brand, not just in the USA market, but globally as well. While the market is flooded with many brands that are cookie cutter and same thing/different sticker, Rival has done their research and is doing the right things to push frame technology in the sport. We are looking forward to the challenge of established Rival as a staple brand here in the US."
