NORTH VANCOUVER—Cove Bikes has signed local prodigy Geoff Gulevich to a two-year contract. The 16-year-old up-and-comer will be the Cove’s freeride front man for 2004/05.
Gabe Fox, Cove’s new sales and marketing manager had this to say about their new acquisition; “we’re are stoked to have Gulevich on the program, he knows what’s going on with the new school and will bring a youthful approach to the crucial freeride market.”
With four years riding under his belt Gulevich has gained a reputation as a confident rider by consistently stomping big technical tricks. Lately, he’s been dirt jumping like a bat out of hell. “He has a flowing style and a good eye for progression and making new tricks. He’s a persistent little bastard, but he’s also mellow, well spoken and sharp,” according to Dave Watson.
Cove Bikes feels that an investment in Gulevich is an investment in the future of the sport.

Gully has also caught the eye of freeride veteran Wade Simmons who feels that, “he possesses the new-school, young-kid-style with a blend of traditional mountain biking.”
Besides representing Cove Bikes in upcoming film projects, Gulevich will be heavily involved in R&D. He said he is stoked to be riding for the Cove because he believes in their product. “The bikes are awesome, absolutely beautiful bikes.”
