On a gloriously sunny Spring day Össur the manufacturers of CTi headed down to Bolddog Freestyle Motocross team’s base in the farmlands of Norfolk. The four FMX team members have long been users of the CTi and were waiting on their brand new custom braces complete with a unique CTi Team Rider paint job.
The Bolddog boys were the first riders to be fitted with the new design and were instantly impressed. “They look awesome! They are going to stand out a mile.” Commented team member Arran Powley, after being fitted with the CTi’s the boys were keen to test them out immediately, and headed straight over to the FMX ramps.
Bolddog are the UK’s number one FMX team and are part of the Top Gear Live and Arena Cross tours. The team travel the world performing FMX and rely on the support that CTi knee braces provide to give them the confidence they need to maximise their performance. Team member Samson Eaton remarked “They make you feel indestructible! Once you ride with them you’ll never ride without them.”
The rigid carbon fibre frame offers maximum stabilisation of the knee to prevent excessive forces which lead to ligament damage. Team manager Dan Whitby tore his ACL whilst riding before he started wearing the braces “I wish I had CTi braces on then, I now wouldn’t be able to ride without them.” The CTi knee brace is respected by leading physicians around the world and used by top athletes in Motorsport, Wakeboarding and Skiing.
The Director of Bolddog FMX Andy Godbold stated that “Without the support of companies like Össur it would be very difficult for the team to continue to ride”. Össur are proud sponsors of the Bolddog FMX team who wear CTi as their knee brace of choice and we look forward to continue working with the guys and keeping their knees in top condition!
