Award Participations

  • EUROBIKE AWARD students 2009


Butch Gaudy (*1951) brought the mountain bike to Europe. He founded the MTB Cycletech Corporation in the 1980s, only to sell it ten years later, when he went to San Francisco. Together with Velobaze Inc., Zurich, he relaunched the MTB Cycletech brand in 2000. Since then, he has kept busy developing and producing a number of very different bicycle concepts. (September 2009)
