Effective immediately Ryan Guettler has left Mirraco on good terms to ride exclusively for Colony for 2011 & beyond.

I am really stoked that we could make this work & so is Ryan. I have known & ridden with Ryan since he was like 7 or 8 years old & this just seems natural that he would eventually ride for my company. Ryan has always been a big part of the Colony family but now it feels complete with Ryan on board 100%.

You can expect out in August 2011, a signature frame & complete bike called, ‘The Living’ with Ryan.

Once again, I am so stoked to have you aboard Ryan… looking forward to the years ahead mate.

Press release from Mirraco below…

Ryan Guettler has decided to leave Mirra Co and sign with Colony Bmx for 2011. “Ryan has been a huge part of Mirra Co since the beginning and has done an amazing job representing the brand.” explains Mirra ” As an athlete, I will always respect and support a riders decision to explore new opportunites.”

In 2005, Guettler turned pro and also proved to the other riders in Austrailia he could fly across the ocean to America and “Make it”. Ryan made Dew Tour History as a rookie by collecting Year end Titles in both Park and Dirt in the same.

“I’ve been with Mirra Co since 2006 and we’ve done some amazing trips together but now it’s time for me to become a 100% Colony rider.” “Colony is the largest brand in Australia and I want to help them get their name out in America.” “I just want to thank Mirra Co for all the support over the last 5 years.” says Guettler.

“On behalf of Mirra Co, we want to wish Ryan the best of luck and a fresh start to a brand new journey.” says Mirra.
