I was first noticed by Oakley USA at the 2011 London Olympic Test event. Steve Blick, the US BMX/MTB sponsorship guys approached me there. He wanted to see me running Oakley eye wear and as if I’d say no to such good product! I’m stoked to have Oakley casual wear and race wear always keeping me looking fresh. Cheers!
