Wilton, Conn. – May 1, 2015 – GT Bicycles, a brand of Cycling Sports Group, has announced UK BMX pro rider Jason Phelan has joined the expanding GT family as a member of the global GT BMX team. Jason will be representing GT in contests and events, filming exclusive video edits around the world, and roadtripping with the other riders on board GT.
Jason has joined GT fresh from a multi-year stint as pro on Wethepeople, where his signature frame was one of the biggest selling framesets in the European market. With his experience and following, Jason is bringing a wealth of talent and knowledge to GT BMX.
Jason is joining GT at a very exciting time, as GT Bicycles is enjoying a full revamp – with a complete new BMX range for the 2016 model year, a new brand/product manager, new BMX parts and accessories line, and new pro riders.
Jason said, “Being on GT to me is actually pretty amazing. One of the first bikes I ever had was a GT Dyno with mag wheels when I was about 13. Starting off on a GT, to now riding for the brand 15 years later really is a good feeling, and as the saying goes – earn your wings – I sure feel like I have now.”
He continues, “GT is starting off fresh with new bikes and product, and so am I. It feels good to be part of a new beginning and I’m excited for the future and riding GT Bikes.”
Jason will be riding a team GT bike from the outset along with all-new GT BMX P&A.
