Instead of focusing on new beginnings, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the riders who placed their trust in us, the riders who believed in what we are doing, the riders who share our vision, and to those that have chosen to support a small brand.
Viris would like to extend its gratitude to its rider community for an awesome season. Or to put it quite simply, a massive THANK YOU, you're all LEGENDS!
So here is a little look back at who has been repping Viris this past year:
PHIL ATWILL & PROPAIN POSITIVE TEAMJoining us this year, and arguably one of the most talented riders in the world... Mr Phil Atwill. Phil has been lighting up the live feeds this year. Taking the Viris ONYX goggle to some of its best world cup downhill finishes to date. Alongside Phil we've been stoked to have supported the entire Propain Positive team, with talented riders such as Marco Lamaris & Socratis Zotos taking Viris product to all manner of events across the globe.
JOE BREEDENReturning for another year with us is Joe Breeden of the Intense Factory Racing Team. We've supported Joe since day one of our story, and we've been working closely with him to develop and refine the latest goggles. Its been awesome seeing Joe back up in the World Cup finals where he belongs after a couple of seasons hindered with injuries.
DAVE 'AKA SAM HOCKENHULL'You might know him as DAVE, we know him as the guy with copious amounts of style, going sideways, or launching the biggest features at Red Bull Hardline... Its Sam Hockenhull. This dude just loves riding his bike, oozes style and inspires a generation of riders.
Ross Kew of South Africa, remember that name, one to watch for the future! When we got approached by one of the industry leading athlete managers and he asked us if we would interested in sponsoring Ross, there was zero hesitation. Ross is actually our first rider to win a National title wearing a Viris goggle. With a season cut short with injury we didn't really get to see Ross at his best, but watch out for him in the future.
