Gnu Taps Kyle Clancy; Revamps Team

Mervin Mfg. is proud to announce the signing of Mammoth Mountain ripper Kyle Clancy to the Gnu Team. “I had a lot of options but Gnu is the best fit for me,” said Kyle. “They are probably the most down to earth people around. They want to give me the freedom to ride where I want and film with whoever I want and that fits my lifestyle better than anything.”

Pete Saari, Mervin Co-Founder and Marketing Director had this to say. “I barely know him. I heard he rips, at least that’s what Danny said.” Having his best buds Danny Kass and Zach Leach on the team certainly made Kyle’s decision easier. Look for these three tearing up a hill or town near you soon. Kyle’s other sponsors are Grenade, Red Bull, Oakley, 93/94, Jack’s Garage, and a mystery clothing company to be named very soon.

The Gnu US Team for 03’/04′ is big mountain underground rider Temple Cummins, All Around Role Model/Ripper Barrett Christy, Finnish Gangsta Iikka Backstrom, Grenerdians Zach Leach, Kyle Clancy and Half Pipe Silver Medalist Danny Kass. Saari added, “Their handsome good looks are sure sell snowboards.”
