Tim grew up in the Blue Mountains, an hour and a half west of Sydney, he’s been a bike messenger in Sydney for a few years and in 2014 travelled extensively around the US and Canada, working for Send It in Toronto for a while. He came an extremely commendable 6th in the Cycle Messenger World Championships in Mexico – 2014 and is one of Sydney’s best riders. After he travelled in North America he has come out the other side to work with Kranq, one of the busiest and hardest working courier companies in Sydney. He is a well known and respected part of the international courier community and will shyly acknowledge that he is sponsored by Oakley, he has also just turned 23. Who says nice guys finish last?
Bart Haddock, who had the idea to film Tim, approached us to help him do it, we then approached Aaron to help us with filming and cameras and then pulled Lara in for creative direction. It turned into a group project and went on for months. If nothing else it helped bring a few people together and we were able to spend time camping and riding. I got to know Tim in a completely different way than before and that in itself is a good result of the film. We love this video, we pushed our boundaries to create something that reflected Tim’s personality and realised how much we have to learn about bringing ideas from imagined glory to reality.
