Phil is known for his flawless video parts and some memorable race runs, standing on the World Cup podium a handful of times. Before creating the Positive crew, he rode for some of the biggest downhill race teams. For 2022 he will be back training with Alan Milway to help him achieve more results on the world’s stage.
2021 saw him featured in Redbull’s Fast Life series (releasing early 2022) and has an extensive section in Tea & Biscuits 2.

A new addition to the team for 2022. Thanasis caught Phil’s eye from the very first time Phil saw him riding. A move to Athens and ultimately being closer to Phil offers the two the opportunity to push and elevate each other’s riding. One of the fastest riders to come out of Greece, this year sees Thanasis get his first taste of World Cups after some amazing results including a First Place at the first round of the IXS Downhill Cup in Bulgaria.
A whole lot of positive energy, known as Soc. At 17 years old, he’s been taken under Phil’s wing for the past few years, pushing him along and
helping him to refine his race craft and find his feet on the worlds stage. 2021 saw him race his first few World Cup’s and has found himself at the top of the Greek national Enduro races.
