Russell Merry of Hot Wheels, the GT distributor, said:
"GT is re-establishing itself as one of the country's leading brands and partnering with the UK's premier retailers is part of that process.
"The GT product team in thge US continues to innovate and GT is once again a force to be reckoned with in the UK market. Should we achieve the sales at Evans that we have seen across the rest of our IBD GT retailers we hope to convince Mike Rice and his team to extend the GT presence thoughout the group."
In 2004, the GT line-up of MTBs will be bolstered with the introduction of road bikes and beach cruisers.
