January 27/11 9:49 am - Race Face Re-Signs Free Ride Legend Brett Tippie

Race Face Performance Products, a global leader in technical mountain bike components, apparel, and protection, has re-signed mountain bike icon Brett Tippie to a two-year sponsorship contract. Tippie, the pioneer of freeride mountain biking, who made his professional debut in 1995 and has appeared in countless movies, magazines, and riding events over the years, has been with Race Face since he entered the gravity cycling scene.

"Brett's been a good friend and great representative of Race Face for years," said Craig Pollack, Race Face's President. "His riding career speaks for itself, and his personality and passion for the sport really embody what our brand is all about. Behind the wild persona he puts out there for the camera, there's a guy who has dedicated his life to pushing the envelope of what we thought was possible on a bike. We put that same type of passion into the products we make and customers we serve. Having Brett on board is a natural fit."

For 2011, Tippie has a packed schedule of riding, announcing, and appearances booked. Highlights include hosting Crankworx, coaching for Camp of Champions, and filming webisodes of his popular online series "Just the Tip".

"This year is going to be epic," says Tippie. "I'm hooked up with all my original favorite sponsors once again, and I'm stoked to be riding Race Face. I've been riding Race Face forever, and together we've been at the forefront of the freeride scene since the beginning. The THREE things I like best about Race Face products are 1.) They're high performance, 2.) They're good looking and 3.) . . . see numbers 1. and 2.!"

Tippie was born in Vancouver but cut his teeth riding the steeps around Kamloops and Whistler. Tippie, along with Race Face protection-sponsored riders Wade Simmons and Richie Schley, are the founders of the free ride cycling movement. Tippie currently resides on the North Shore with his fiancé, Sarah and his 2 year-old daughter Jessamy.
