Leaving Van Dessel
It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that I will not be riding for Van Dessel any longer. With what seemed like an even heavier hand I picked up the phone a couple of hours ago and called Edwin Bull owner of Van Dessel Cycles to tell him both thanks for a wonderful season and 2 years of partnership, but that I would not be able to continue with them in 09. I was approached by GT earlier this year to see if I would be interested in riding with them, I replied that the only way I would leave VDS is if they came at me with an offer I couldn't refuse and at the conclusion of this season they did just that. This was a really tough decision to make as the guys over at VDS have been great to me. They have taken great care in getting me everything I needed and then some, but GT simply came at me with everything short of the kitchen sink. GT is also located here in Madison and we do a lot of business with them, so as a business owner it made my decision much more clear. With that said, I can now announce that I will be racing for the GT National Team in 09. Details are forth coming and as soon as I get the green light you can get all the details right here. Thanks again to Edwin and all the guys at Van Dessel for a great 2 years.
