ODI dates back to the 1980’s as the leader in grip manufacturing. Focusing primarily on the bmx and mountain bike industries through the 90’s and early 2000’s, ODI re-entered the motocross scene when they developed the patented lock-on grip system that eliminates wire and glue. Continuing to advance the way riders hold on to their bikes, ODI has worked closely with the teams they support such as Troy Lee Designs to create the product that is now being used by some of the top teams in the industry.Tweet

You’re a former pro—who has the best chance of finally to knocking off the GOAT and taking his SX crown?
I think the guy on TV said it best: James Reed.
their bike—the Tornado—I immediately knew it had nothing to do with the
bike. It was the food, wasn't it?
Jeffrey Beerdsen. The Netherlands
It’s obvious that you don’t know anything about the Tornado or European food. Let’s see if we can draw any comparisons. The food in Europe and the Tornado both make me nauseous. Europeans and the Tornado both smoke too much. Europeans don’t use ice in any of their drinks, preferring everything at room temperature, while the Tornado bike is just “not cool.” Europeans like to eat snails, while the Tornado is one….
Wait a minute, why am I explaining myself to you? You’re from the Netherlands. You’re probably higher than a giraffe’s ass in some “weed bar” in Amsterdam. I guess when you have the munchies that bad, any kind of food will taste good. The fact is, I love Chinese food. I’ve probably eaten more Chinese food in my lifetime than Jackie Chan. The real problem here is that food sucks on your continent. It’s barely even edible. So think about that when you set your joint down, hop on a community bicycle, and pedal yourself home. Peace out, Jeffrey.
