EDZ have an established relationship with SuperMoto GP rider Chris Hodgson. He is also based in Maryport and often pops in to our Maryport HQ and warehouse to check out our latest products and taking them to test out on the track.
Who is Chris Hodgson?
Chris is the current SuperMoto GP Champion. SuperMoto can best be described as a mixture of Motocross and road racing. Chris has raced across various disciplines since the age of 6 and has progressed over the years to become a formidable force both in the UK and abroad. He now has an impressive 14 British SuperMoto titles to his name. His already packed trophy cabinet received a special addition at the end of 2017 when he was recognised as 'Sporting Hero of the Year' at the West Cumbria Community Heroes awards.
During 2018 Chris will be heading out to Spain to compete in the Spanish Championships as part of the TM Racing Team, as well as continuing to compete in the UK championships.
Chris is also intent on passing on his experience to future stars this year. He has set up the 'Sliders Academy' with fellow riders Neil Jay and Jordan Brannon to teach everything from the basics of riding through to race tactics.
It is safe to say 2018 is going to be a busy year for Chris!
Chris & EDZ
Chris wears EDZ All Climate Base Layers when racing. He has the full range including suit, leggings, long sleeve and t-shirt. He is also a big fan of our Merino Full length socks and are becoming a firm favourite for him, we are pretty sure he is sporting them during his day job as a Joiner as well on the track. More recently Chris has been testing out our Merino t-shirts and these are now a firm favourite especially when travelling abroad.
We will be following Chris throughout his current racing season and will be providing updates in our News section.
