Howard Duhs "The Boss"

Role: Sales & Orders
Age: 55, but feel 18 (except in the morning). 
Hobbies: Cycling.....and that's about it. 
Riding Background: Done all forms of bike riding except for BMX. Raced road bikes at State level for 13 years. Raced track for 3 years. Raced cross country MTB for 10 years. These days I just love riding my bike for the pleasure it brings. 
Favourite Bands: Pink Floyd, Cat Stevens, Wolfmother. 
Favourite Place to Ride: Anywhere new. Love riding in New Zealand. Love riding when the sun is out and life is good. 
Favourite Bike: I have owned about 50 top class bikes over the years, but I do love my new Scott Addict Team Issue. This bike is sweet. Super light and climbs like nothing else. Probably the coolest bike I've owned was a very early model Eddy Merckx. It was hand made in the Belgian factory and came stock with Campag Super Record that had been engraved with the EDDY MERCKX logo. It even came with a Campag Super Record alloy freewheel. Very cool, and I wish I still had it to hang on the wall.

Jason Henderson

Role: Bike assembler and a bit of sales
Age: 19
Hobbies: Anything that provides an adrenaline rush! And of course everything that involves a bike (working on bikes, riding, building jumps and trails). I just love to have fun.
Riding Background: Been riding for as long as I can remember. Used to be pretty keen on freestyle BMX, just doing tricks with mates, now I have moved onto mountain biking and love the thrill. Started racing downhill events in 2014,and now enduro racing in 2016, never had so much fun in my life.
Favourite place to ride: I can't pick just one place, there are too many good spots! Basically, if it's a mountain bike trail, it's awesome. But I do prefer tracks that are fast, flowy and technical.
Favourite Bike: Loving my Scott Voltage FR710. Perfect for shredding up any trail.
