TERRY ADAMS ON ODYSSEY!
We're very pleased to announce that Terry Adams will join Chase Gouin as we build a new Odyssey flatland team and begin to develop a yet-to-be-named flat specific product line together in the coming year.

Terry Adams riding for Odyssey BMX and A Bad Thing in 2008
"After six years of amazing support from Ares Bykes and four years with Dia-Tech brakes, I'll be leaving both companies starting in 2008 to ride for Odyssey BMX and A Bad Thing. I will still be riding for Red Bull, Lotek Shoes and Raising Cane's, but before I get into the changes for next year, I want to take a minute to thank everyone at Ares and Dia-Tech. Both companies took me in, treated me better than family, and gave me the opportunity to do what I love. I can't even begin express my appreciation for both organizations and I'll never forget the great things they did for me.
With that said, I am extremely excited about what the New Year has in store for me. Odyssey BMX brought me on board to help build their flatland program. This will be a chance for me to put my ideas on paper and work with the guys at Odyssey to come up with great products for flatlanders around the world. Along with their current flatland rider, Chase Gouin, and two other riders that will join us on the team soon, we hope to create staple parts for flatland just as Odyssey has done for street and ramp riding. When I look into the future with Odyssey, I see flatland in the U.S. growing because of what we can accomplish together. I recently met with the Odyssey crew, including team manager Jim Bauer, and know we can do great things together for our sport.
A Bad Thing is a new flatland company out of France that already has an incredible team made up of Matthias Dandois, Alex Jumelin, Raphael Chiquet, and Alain Massabova. I will only be riding the frames, which are available now, and I can't wait to build mine up when I visit Paris the first week of January! I am already good friends with everyone on the team, and I am anxious to see where things go in the next few years with this young company. With the addition of both new sponsors in 2008, I will be able to continue to travel to contests around the globe and promote all of my sponsors through demos, videos, and magazine coverage. I will also be working on my solo video this year that is due out in September, and of course riding in my parking lot and having fun on a regular basis. Thanks again to my past sponsors, along with my new ones, and thanks to my fans for their continued support. See you in '08!"

Kick ass! This is some seriously great news about Terry and the product line!
Will the duke and potsy be in Costa Rica too? Is it also true
terry is going to bring back those fork standers we all know
Yeah!!! Hell yeah!!! Can't wait to see the Odyssey Flatland product line!!!
I've a question, EVOII hardware is compatibe with the Evolver brake? I've an evolver set but my springs are really bad and i want to change them but nobody have the evolver hardware 'cause they're discontinued. I hope they work on the evolver's because I can't buy another set of brakes, are too expensive here in my country. bye!
Wow. Another reason why you guys rule. Very well rounded move dudes.
Congatulation Terry and Congratulation Odyssey. You are going to make a great combination!
Props to Terry! I like that Terry expresses his gratitude to his old sponsors! This just shows what kind of quality individual he really is.
I'm excited that he will be joining forces with Chase on Odyssey. This could do a lot for flatland in North America and World Wide.
Props to Odyssey for seeing the potential in Terry and flatland! This is great news :)
