There’s been lots of talk about what’s going on with the Redline team. In the simplest of forms, Redline has decided to not renew contracts with Zack Gerber, Brandon Christie, and Glenn Salyers and Mark Flipowicz will no longer be the team manager. Meaning the team will be slimmed down to Tyler Fernengel, Josh Hult, and Brandon Dosch. Team Manager Mark Flipowicz sent us an official release about the changes (well, most):
“In the past 2 and a half years I worked hard to help Redline form a team I was proud of. I worked with the current riders at the time such as Brandon Dosch, Josh Hult and Brandon Christie. I then brought in new blood like Zack Gerber, Glenn Salyers and wiz kid Tyler Fernengel to round out what was one of the most diverse and talented teams in BMX. In that time frame together we went on some amazing trips, won an X-Games medal, made the cover of several magazines, produced web edits with view counts totaling over 1/4 million, got tons of web and magazine coverage, ran amuck at this years Texas Toast, turned a lot of people’s opinion of the brand around and most of all just had a damn good time.
However it looks like our momentum has come to an end.
Redline has decided to make some changes so I am no longer going to be part of the brand. I’d like to thank Redline and all my teammates for 2 stellar years of good times and great memories. I wish the brand, the team and everyone at Redline Bikes the best if Luck in the future.”
