    Lopes is a class act!

    Brian Lopes Awarded First Place at the Tara Llanes Classic

    Not exactly Ibis-related, but nonetheless deserving of kudos. Ibis picked a winner when they hired him to represent their brand. Plus, picking up one whole minute on Voreis over a ten-minute course is just insane. Well done Brian!

    Incredibly informative. I can't believe I just wasted two whole minutes of my life on someone's bull$hit blog who has a hard-on for Lopes, apparently because he takes up too many parking spaces.
    Two whole minutes I will never get back. Sigh.

    With all the stalking for photos, Lopes should get protection from this freak! For sure its gotta be some loser with mental problems.

    omg what a complete asshat. Some tool who has a beef with Brian Lopes (he parked his car across 3 parking spaces in an empty parking lot! the horror!) is actually stalking him online. Anonymously. And kmac99 thought linking to it would be of interest to everyone. Is there an "ignore" feature on this forum?

    Whatever happened to the good old days when if you had a problem with someone, and wanted to do something about it, you had to strap on a pair and confront them like a man?

    Lopes is an incredible rider. I don't think anyone would dispute that. I have also heard that he is a great guy to those who know him well and I have seen him do some really cool things for people (shout out to his friends kid this year at Crankworx). He just has a reputation for being fairly cold and aloof amongst the general public. He was at MBO this year, but didn't really make any appearances. It would have been fun to see him in the minibike race with Eric Carter. But I don't have a problem with him not wanting to be part of the rest of our scene. I'm not sure how much I would enjoy that much popularity either.

    I can't speak to Brian Lopes' character because I've never met the guy and until I do, everything is hearsay. From the videos I've seen (Brian Lopes is pretty candid with DirtTV), he seems like a pretty normal dude.

    He also has a really, REALLY sick bike:
