“Bulls Bikes USA is proud to announce their first ever U.S. brand ambassadors for the 2015/2016 calendar year. The six chosen ambassadors from across the country will represent Bulls in their local cycling communities, helping to educate, familiarize and expand the German-born bike brand’s presence in the U.S. market.
We were impressed and honored to see such a wide and talented range of individuals apply to be a part of our inaugural ambassador program. The six ambassadors selected to launch this first program are a dynamic, engaged and exciting group with a ton of riding experience under their belts. We are thrilled to work with these individuals as they help promote and educate fellow riders about our brand and also provide us with integral feedback on our products.”
