We interviewed team-rider Tristan Gray recently. Tristan is a BMX rider from Adelaide, South Australia. We have sponsored him from the very beginning of Restless Socks. Tristan is an insanely talent BMX rider. Everyone that knows him cannot speak highly enough of not just how talented this kid is but what a sweet kid he is as well.
Unfortunately Tristan has been out of action for about a year or so now after a knee reconstruction went bad. To not be riding for so long has made him absolutely gutted. He has managed to hold his head high through this rough time and handled himself with such maturity for his age. His passion has gotten him through this hard time. We are proud so proud of Tristan and can't wait to see him back on his bike. In true Tristan style as well, he continued to wear his socks throughout his surgeries and during recovery, check the pics out below. Not long to go now Tristan until we see you cruising again.
