Thrones was pumped to team up with Simon Van Velthooven on his quest for Olympic glory on the track at the London Olympics. We’re pumped because he is a young gun with form and a great shot at Olympic glory. We also love the fact that he has earned himself the nickname the Rhino.
The Rhino came onto our radar at the 2012 UCI world championships in Melbourne where he took out 3rd place in the 1000m TT and was unlucky to be relegated in the Kierin after crossing the line 3rd due to an altercation with another rider. What did they expect from the Rhino?
We’re proud that we developed a custom design featuring an angry Rhino on it. We decided to use black and silver so that it was in keeping with his New Zealand team kit.
True to form the Rhino delivered on the track winning a bronze medal in the Keirin.
