Press Release: X-Fusion Announces 2012 Slopestyle Athletes
Andrew Taylor, Jack Fogelquist and Tyler McCaul will continue through 2012 riding X-Fusion suspension. This trio of slopestyle personalities offers more than just fresh web edits and big time local contests. All three riders live within pedaling distance of the X-Fusion US headquarters in Santa Cruz, CA. The unique ability to work closely with riders on product development and marketing projects has created a comfortable and beneficial relationship for all. X-Fusion looks forward to another year with all three of these athletes and the continued success we hope to share.
Andrew Taylor first signed with X-Fusion in 2007 making this his 6th season. He is the longest active member of the team. During his time at X-Fusion we have watched him go from a young contest rider to a mature contest organizer/promoter, launch his own company and maintain the ability to strike the podium at various freestyle events. X-Fusion will be proud to support AT with whatever he ventures into next!
Jack Fogelquist enters his 2nd full season with X-Fusion in 2012. This online megastar keeps us all entertained and unproductive at work with his successful video series, “Fogelsodes”. Fogel was also featured in the 2011 online release “X Gon Give It To Ya”. He will continue to shred, produce and promote X-Fusion through 2012 and we are very happy to have him back!
2012 marks the 3rd season for Tyler McCaul aboard X-Fusion suspension. He commented, “The last two years with X Fusion have been nothing but awesome for me and I'm pumped to be re-signing with them for 2012! As riders we put a lot of trust in the parts we put on our bikes, and X Fusion suspension has those parts that I trust in enough to put on the bikes that I ride. I also like to be in close contact with my sponsors and the fact that X Fusion's US headquarters is in my hometown makes it that much easier to continue working with them in 2012!!”
All three riders will be using a various range of X-Fusion products in 2012. Velvet and Vengeance forks will be found at the front of their bikes, the O2, Vector and all-new Vector Air rear shock lines will provide the rear squish on their rigs. Lastly, when these guys are out training and shredding trails they will be using the Hilo adjustable seat post to better enjoy every ride.
