Hi I'm Ox O'Connell. I used to race pro Dh down here in Nz back in the nineties and retired around the time they introduced drug testing.
In 1994 I started running underground races under my 'Rockstar Racing' banner and by 1997 I was trading under this name making branded and custom Dh apparel. I have 'prior use' on the term to any other dh, bmx or mx clothing manufacturer. All my logos are copyrighted upon creation not trademarked. We make the worlds best custom Dh tops.
In 1999 we won the first of many Nz national titles with Glen Sisarich. We won our last in 2010 with Wyn Masters who we had sponsored since the age of 13. In between lets not forget all those titles with Nathan Rankin and the Timmy Nelson era that could have been but never was. Or perhaps more recently you saw our psychedelic Hawaiian Dh top that Eddie Masters ran at Mt St Anne ?
Have fun riding bikes and remember to leave no turn unstoned !

You nailed it lol we have a zombie economy too. Our banks are totally dependent upon the European commercial paper markets to fund them selves by lending short and borrowing long every six months. Not to mention an insane cost of living and a world class housing bubble built on a huge pile of low interest rate debt just waiting to explode.. On the plus side China does all our polluting for us so we can virtual signal to the rest of the world !!

Dangerholm's 'Lemmy Forever' Hardtail - A Tribute to Motörhead's Singer & Bassist
You never know Lemmy might approve of the lycra. He did love sis 'Daisy Duke' cut offs which may have inspired this chap if you check out his tee shirt.

Nice effort and words Matt even though riding uphill is not dignified.
