Starting with the World Cup opener in Soelden, Bode will join the POC team using helmets and goggles.
It has taken some time. When we started up POC 5 years ago, Bode was at the top of the list of the athletes we wanted to collaborate with. At the time, I went to meet with Bode´s agent Ken Sowles in Burlington, close to Bodes home town Franconia. I knew then chances were small. He was in the middle of a contract and at the time we really didn't have the capacity to support him. Since then, I´ve been sending product info, samples and little notes, just not to loose the initiative, if the opportunity would pop up.
What happenend in Burlington was that, I came to realize that Bode was too far fetched but his agent Ken came up with the idea of looking at Julia Mancuso. I had heard about her from the Junior Worlds but not much more. We gave it a chance and the rest is incredible history.
It´s with great honor that Bode has chosen to come along a small but extraordinary and likeable group of athletes.
Welcome to POC, Bode!
