4x World Champ Lopes Off GT
Sun Sep 30, 2007
Source: BrianLopes.com

Making its way around the MTB world is news that multi-time 4x World Champion and 4x World Cup winner Brian Lopes is off long-time sponsor GT Bicycles.

Taken from BrianLopes.com:

"I got the news I will not be riding for GT anymore. I guess winning the World Champs, World Cup series and being with the company for 7 years is not good enough. Some pretty lame excuses were given to me & if they would have just told me the truth I would have respected them more. I have been around too long & know way too many people for me not to hear news from others. That's what happends when you have a bunch of corporate yahoos who really don't get it. I do want to really thank Hans, Monkey, Steve Spencer, my teammates, the entire California office, and all the distributors who have supported me in the last couple years. I'm actually pretty happy in some ways and had some really good meetings with other companies who make some nice bikes."

Where he ends up will remain to be seen.
