Valencia, CA (April 23, 2018) – Tag Metals relaunched earlier this month as part of the Group 6 USA, LLC family of brands, and we are pleased to announce that seven-time champ Bob “Hurricane” Hannah has joined the Tag Metals product-development team as a technical advisor.

After retiring from professional SX/MX racing, Hannah continued to race airplanes for several years. Now, as a pilot and competitive bicycle rider, Hannah’s attention to detail and his technical knowledge makes him the perfect addition to our product team.

Eddie Cole, Group 6 USA CEO, said, ”Bob has worked with us on previous brands; first, as a factory racer and as a technical advisor. Bob has been instrumental in helping us with Tag and we are really fortunate to have Bob involved with us.”

Bob commented, “Well, to be honest, l can’t seem to get rid of these guys, so, I’m involved in another project! Actually, we put together a great product line and the team has several new products already planned for phase two.”
