During the recent Miami trip, DIG sat down with Brandon, Travis, Justin, Matt and Broc and hit them with some questions on the spot. Click play and enjoy!

Miami. What a crazy place. The entire Odyssey team spent a week in this outrageous palm tree and concrete jungle, and every day was a struggle. Tom Dugan, who’s back was already tweaked prior to the trip, had his bike stolen the first day. Jacob Cable fell deathly ill and was bedridden for most of the trip. Our Airbnb host tried to steal our bike rack, and our jet ski tour guide lost his shit when we were, according to him, being too reckless on the jet skis (he worries too much and also needs to chill). And we got kicked out of a lot of spots. And not just kicked out, but brutally screamed at and degraded, or even physically attacked. But the Odyssey team will not be stopped. These guys rode as hard as they could every day, banded together against those trying to prevent us from doing our thing, and filmed a damn fine video, even in the face of so much adversity. Enjoy!
Featuring Aaron Ross, Brandon Webster, Broc Raiford, Gary Young, Justin Spriet, Jacob Cable, Matt Nordstrom, and Travis Hughes.
Travis doesn’t know it yet, but he just got bumped up to the Odyssey pro team. Congratulations dude!
Like with most pro bumps, this was a pretty easy decision to make. Travis is so good at bikes, it can be pretty hard to comprehend sometimes. Also hard to comprehend is that Travis is still only 17 years old, especially when you realize he’s already been repping Odyssey for two years now. He’s been such an important part of our AM team, steady killing it on every trip and for every video, and it’s been a real treat watching his riding progress at such a ridiculous pace over the past couple of years. It’s been clear for a minute the time has come to turn him pro – check out his video and you’ll see what I mean. The kid’s got it.
