Congratulations on getting on Odyssey UK, how long have you been riding for them?
Cheers! I'm so happy about being part of the team. Always loved the odyssey stuff! Things started kicking into motion around about a month ago. Its not a secret, I just wanted to put a little bit effort into joining the brand.
How did you go about being added to the team?
Well its a strange one actually. Rob Andrews hooked it up. He's a good guy and always looking out for me.
With Premium being your main sponsor were their any problems with you running Odyssey parts?
Not really. I emailed John and Colin first to ask what they thought, seeing as I'd be changing my parts from Premium to Odyssey, but they were stoked for me and are supporting me all the way!
What's your favourite Odyssey part you ride?
Besides the Par ends I'd say the rear hub. It feels solid and has a switchable driver which is a cool touch and probably comes in handy for shops selling them.
How does it feel to be riding on Ride To Glory this year with Premium against your other sponsor Odyssey?
Haha! It is amazing to be able to do RTG for a second time. I've not really thought about it in that way though. Hopefully both teams will bump into each other at some point through the trip, so I meet Walter and the guys!
What has Odyssey got planned for you for the rest of the year?
I have no idea haha! Anythings a bonus haha!
