Transition Bikes has signed Dylan Tremblay to their factory team for the remaining 07 season and upcoming 2008 season. Dylan has long been know as one of the original Dirtbag riders that everyone can relate to. Dylan’s style is very diverse but he specializes in park and dirt jumping but also has a love for trail building and big mountain riding. For this year Dylan’s main ride will be a baby blue Trail-or-Park hardtail but he will also be  running the full suspension dirt jump bike the Double and the short travel freeride bike the Preston FR.


“We feel like Dylan is the perfect fit to our rider owned family. He is pretty much the least corporate and most laid back rider ever, which we love.  Dylan is also extremely approachable and the type of guy you meet for the first time and feel like you have known him your whole life. His riding style and philosophy fits perfectly with who we are as a company and the way we relate to our fellow riders. This is one of the main reasons he contacted me about riding for us and the fact that he is a huge fan of our hardtails and short travel bikes, says Kevin Menard, owner of Transition Bikes.”


For 2007/2008 look for Dylan as the host and rider on the much anticipated Drop In series season 5 which will include 13 episodes of TV and DVDs. Dylan has also been hard at work on his own trails on Victoria Island and will be featured in Transition Bikes new DVD “Will Ride 4 Food” due fall of 07.
