Brian Lopes Joins Intense Cycles
Earlier this month, Brian Lopes and Ibis Cycles split ways after a successful seven year long partnership. During that time, Brian helped proved the versatility of the company’s product line by winning a XC Eliminator World Cup race and laying down the law several years in a row at the Whistler Air DH race.
Today, it has been revealed officially after much speculation online that Lopes will be joining forces with another American brand – Intense Cycles. While he has never “technically” raced their bikes, those of you who remember his time as a Mongoose sponsored rider will recall he frequently rallied a rebranded Intense M1 to the top spot of the podium early in his career.
