GRAVITY / ENDURO
Josh ButtonJosh Button is a hard-working young man that has made a strong comeback in 2016 after his first streak of World Cup downhill racing from 2007 to 2012. While many have had it easy, Josh has been knocked down and had to work his way back many times. In 2016 at the Australian National Championships he was talking with Connor Fearon about how he would love to come back and do a year of World Cups. He spoke with team manager Mathieu Dupelle, Connor offered him his old race bike, and they told him he could travel with them as long as he didn't mind sleeping on the couch at races.
Their accommodation at the Cairns World Cup was small and he was sleeping on the floor on a camping mattress, but it didn't slow him down and he got 5th place which was the best result of his career. For the next World Cup at Fort William they upgraded him to a bed, and he had a devastating crash which dislocated his hip. It took him six months to properly heal, but throughout his recovery Josh stayed positive and he is ready for the 2017 World Cup season. With his camping mattress in his bike bag, ready to depart after a long off-season driving a bulldozer for work, Josh is one of the toughest people you will ever meet.
