Poole, UK – January 19, 2018 – GT Bicycles is proud to announce the signing of leading dirt jump and freeride athlete Tom Isted to the team roster. After one season competing on the global freeride mountain bike (FMB) circuit and with numerous podiums and national titles under his belt, it was time for Isted to be added to the GT squad following six years of support from Mongoose.
On the new sponsorship, Tom said, “I’m over the moon to be representing GT Bicycles for 2018. I can’t wait to see where this partnership goes over the next year, and I’m really looking forward to putting the bikes through their paces.”
Mark Noble, Category Manager at CSG UK said, “I’m stoked we can extend our support of Tom under the GT Bicycles wing. Tom’s an out-and-out shredder on any terrain, from BMX to FMB contests to sending backflips over 85 foot doubles. He can and will do it all – at Mach ten and always with a massive grin on his face. I’m looking forward to the year ahead and working on new projects with Tom.”
Isted will be riding the Fury and Sanction bikes in addition to the 2018 La Bomba dirt jump bike as well as other BMX models, alongside co-sponsors, Etnies Footwear, Extreme, Stanley Tools, Kenda tyres, and Azonic Components.
