Young Aussie shredder Josh Matthews got himself a new sponsor and it is no other than a big clothing brand from Down Under, Unit Clothing.
“Unit is excited to announce the signing 16 year old BMX rider Josh Matthews.
Josh, based on the Gold Coast, Australia, has joined the team under the guidance of recent double X Games gold medal winner Kyle Baldock, who also made his start with Unit at a young age before going on to become one of the best BMX riders in the world today.
Kyle has been keeping a close eye on Josh for sometime now, and is more than happy to mentor and help develop his talent so that when the time is right Josh has the best chance of succeeding on the world-stage.
“Josh has the style and motivation we’re looking for in a riders,” says Kyle. “He is a kid who is constantly blowing up with new tricks, and you have to keep a close eye on him as you never know what he is going to try next. I’ve been riding with Josh for a while now, he is a cool kid, learn fast, and wants it real bad. I see myself in him more so than any other rider I’ve come across. It is great to have Josh join the team and I look forward to being a mentor to him in the coming years.”
For Jpsh the opportunity to join Unit’s BMX team and work closely with Kyle is a dream come true and he is determined to make the most of it, saying, “I am really stoked about the opportunity to work closely with Kyle, and Unit has a solid BMX team so it feels great to be a part of it. My aim is to reach Kyle’s level in the sport winning events like X Games, and to have him there to guide me along the way will make things a lot easier as he knows the deal. Yeah I am pretty excited about the future!”
