MADISON, Wis. - December 21, 2005 - GT proudly announces that it has re-signed Hans Rey to the GT MTB team. Hans Rey, the consummate performer and the Godfather of Freeride, returns to the GT squad in 2006 for his 20th year. Hans was also featured on 20 magazine covers in 2005 and launched his charity, 'Wheels 4 Life'. My other 2005 highlights were my two main Adventure Team trips to Copper Canyon, Mexico and the Alta Rezia (in the Swiss/Italian Alps) Freeride, said Hans. In 2006, Hans goals are to continue to focus on his Adventure Team trips and getting exposure for his sponsors. I'm looking at several possible destination, including the Philippines, Greenland, and Turkey, said Hans. I will also continue working closely with my sponsors, doing trials shows, workshops, and other PR-related stuff. The multi-talented Hans is riding many different GT models in 2006, doing a little bit of everything from Freeride to Trials to XC. Hell be on the i-Drive 5 and the new DHi, as well as his signature trials frame. GT is like family to me, said Hans.
