Szymon Godziek Wins White Style 2015

Saalfelden Leogang, February 13th 2015 – Szymon Godziek rules victorious at the 9th edition of White Style. Swiftly followed by two Brits, Matt Jones in second and Daryl Brown in third. Next to the massive slopestyle course built from snow, spectators let it rip on the ski slope during The Big (Shr)ED – Fat Bike Battle. An amazing firework show rounded off the winter’s evening in Leogang with a bang!
 
Still in his prime, the Polish athlete Szymon Godziek takes the first podium of the 2015 season in Leogang. His winning run was full of variety, technical tricks and big bangers. Highlights included a smooth tailwhip, backflip barspin, frontflip, a sweet truckdriver off the boner log and big backflip tailwhip to finish. “I am so happy! I have been skiing so much recently I haven’t had the time to practice a lot but the course was great and I felt good. This is the best start to 2015 FMB season for me.” Always on the run – Szymon is now quickly heading back to Poland to celebrate his win (and valentines day) with his fiancé.
 
Right on Szymon’s heals was freshly anointed Red Bull athlete, Matt Jones from Great Britain. Matt dominated training and qualified first before the finals but just couldn’t quite bring it home in the finals. His run featured a slick 360 and technical 360 tailwhip, backflip tailwhip, truckdriver off the boner log and a huge backflip superman. If White Style is a sign of what’s to come – then Matt Jones should have an exciting season ahead of him. Staying positive, Matt is happy with his second place result: “I am smelling of champagne, so life is not bad!”
 
Finishing his last season with a win at FISE China, Daryl Brown starts his 2015 season with a third place at White Style. Maybe this is the start of something prosperous for the British rider. Sadly, he did not show off his signature one-hand superman seatgrab, but he did give the crowd an opposite truckdriver and huge backflip tuck no-hand to cheer for.

Between the White Style qualifying and finals, spectators could take part in a fun fat bike dual slalom race. The Big (Shr)ED – Fat Bike Battle was a huge success and really engaged with the fans – keeping them warm and energized while the athletes prepared for the big finale just next door. One White Style rider in particular may not have been on the podium but certainly has a reason to celebrate. French rider Mehdi Gani celebrated his 26th birthday today in Leogang. After qualifying, everyone gathered to wish him a happy birthday and a great 2015 season.
 
Perfect! That’s how event host Kornel Grundner from Bikepark Leogang summed up this year’s White Style. “Two thousand people came out to brave the winter and watch 20 riders from 11 nations perform spectacular tricks in Leogang. Perfect tricks, perfect course, great fans and spectacular riding made for an electric atmosphere and the perfect event. White Style was simply perfect!”

Uncle Dick Drops His Price

As of Feb 8th, 2015 Uncle Dick’s will be selling consumer direct at wholesale pricing. This means a 3 ounce tin of Uncle Dick’s Bead Slip sells for $10.50 plus shipping to you the buyer instead of the lofty $20.99. Brush bags, as UD likes to call them will also sell at the discounted pricing. “In our first year, distributors were the focus and we only picked up a handful of distributors in the US Market. With marginal sales growth and a host of end-users turned off by the high over the counter retail price it’s a good time to go direct,stated Rich Travis, founder of Uncle Dicks Bike Shop.

Dealer Service Centers, love the product because it’s a behind the counter product intended to help them get tire service out the door, fast. The product is rarely sold over the counter in the retail setting. Shops can continue to buy from distributors or uncledicksbikeshop.com and end-users can now buy direct. A host of bike businesses have been going direct for years. I think this is going to increase sales and end-user interaction 2 fold, both of which will enhance my abilities to follow customer needs and grow the business,” says Rich.

If you are new to Uncle Dick’s Products it’s designed to assist bicycle mechanics with tough tire installations. Such as seating beads and slipping a stubborn tire over a rim. The product allows quick and much safer tire installations for fat bikes and tubeless systems as well. Time is money for everyone so having a tin of bead slip at your bench is money and time made. Just whip the slip with a brush and apply to tire where needed.

Uncle Dick’s Bike Shop was launched back in October of 2013 with a host of great reviews and press coverage on the web. If you’d like to learn more about Uncle Dick’s products please visit us at http://uncledicksbikeshop.com and order these fine products at the new discounted price.

YT BIKES IS EXPANDING INTO NEW MARKETS 

Cameron Zink, the man with the biggest balls in the MTB business will represent YT Industries with his brother Howie in the US and Canada. “YT Industries builds bikes for bikers, hence it was vital for us to find partners in these markets who represent that and are dedicated bikers themselves”, says Markus Flossmann, founder and director of YT Industries.

Cam and Howie have proven track records in business from running their own core company, Sensus. The last 12 years of Cam's life were shaped by his love for mountain biking and we has now offered him the chance to stay true to his roots and follow his passion even after his active career is over – even though that's not going to happen any time soon.

In New Zealand and Australia, NZ local Solon Payne will be heading up the distribution. He was one of the first overseas customers to try and order a YT bike. But Since we hadn't found an adequate partner yet, they refrained from selling into these markets. So in 2014 Solon decided to take this on himself and bagged the full services and distribution deal for Oceania.

With this expansion, YT Industries is now available in all Member States of the EU, Switzerland, Israel, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Also in these new markets we stays true to our concept of direct sales, as this allows them to save immense costs that are created through regular distribution channels including whole- and retail margins. This price advantage is directly benefitting the customer.

From production to distribution, we continues to focus fully on the development of new bikes and the saving of unnecessary costs.
