Jill Kintner and Bryn Atkinson part ways with Transition Bikes
by Dirt HQ
News from Transition bikes, Kintner and Atkinson move on.
News just posted that Jill Kintner and Bryn Atkinson are no longer with Transition Bikes. No idea yet what they will be doing but keep checking Jill's website...it seems that plans are afoot.
The last two years have been a whirlwind of success for Transition Factory Racing. Following their first year as privateers in 2009, team Bryll (as they are affectionately called) were brought into the family of Transition Bikes. The two riders had an existing friendship with TR Team Manager Lars Sternberg, who saw a great opportunity to work with the duo and simultaneously launch Transitions involvement into the DH world. Many victories were secured by the squad over the following two seasons. This year saw highs and lows for the team, and they endured it all together. The three were finally reunited on the trail once again in the beautiful forest of northern Oregon's foothills of Mt Hood this August.
In two seasons the team secured 3 out of 4 of the elite men's and women's PRO GRT Series overall titles and 3 National Championship titles, Jill Kintner's beloved Transition Double went the entirety of the 2011 season without a lost race run, and both Bryn and Lars overcame injuries to head into the 2012 season healthy and strong.
This particular story ends here, but both parties have exciting things in store for the future. It was a great run, and we wouldn't change it for the world!
