From Press Release
Marin and Whyte bikes have been announced as the new bike partners of event organisers Trail Break, ahead of their forthcoming summer events season.
ATB Sales, the distributor for both brands, will be presenting the bikes at Trail Break’s Southern Trail Ride and Southern 100 Enduro events, and Whyte are being lined up as the bike partner for Septembers epic MaXx Exposure South Downs night enduro. ‘This is a partnership of established, independent brands”, says Trail Break’s Phil Harrison.
“The boom in cycling has inevitably seen the industry more and more controlled by investment capital and conglomerates, but the heart and soul of mountain biking comes from it’s independent pioneers. Marin, Whyte and Trail Break all fall into that bracket, all three are well established founder owned businesses and fully connected to their roots.”
“We will be working closely with both brands, ATB Sales and their independent dealer network to bring the best bikes and the best events to the market. As well as just presenting and demoing bikes, we are working on a range of special incentives and features to make sure the real value in this relationship is passed on to the riders.”
Ross Patterson, Sales and Marketing Director for ATB Sales, adds “We are delighted to be working with Trail Break. It’s a perfect synergy as like us, they are committed to innovating and delivering quality, and have been for the last 18 years”. The Trail Break Summer Season gets under way on April 24th.
