It was announced today that Walter Pieringer will be taking over the role of Team Manager for both Odyssey and Sunday Bikes. Check out the official word from both brands. I can imagine a lot of good things will be coming from this. Stoked on the news. Hell yeah, Walter!
“Odyssey has had the opportunity to work closely with WALTER PIERINGER throughout the years in various ways. We have always been a fan of his photography, video work, ability to orchestrate projects and most importantly, his professional work ethic. With all that said, we are happy to welcome Walter aboard as the new Odyssey TM.
Walter has a proven track record and will continue to coordinate his unique brand of content with the Odyssey crew. Furthermore, Walter will also be working in a similar capacity with our stable of brands: SUNDAY, GSPORT & FLATWARE. We are all excited for 2013 and beyond.
Here is what some of our team riders had to say:
“Hell Yeah!! Walter knows best, trust me.”
– TOM DUGAN
“That guy is multi-talented, in many ways. And he is a good dude.”
– ERIC LICHTENBERGER
“Couldn’t be more stoked, I have a good friend as my new team manager. Looking forward to continuing to travel and work together more!”
– AARON ROSS
“Walter is one of those individuals that happens to be amazing at whatever he puts his mind to. Giving him the reigns to guide the Full Factory teams is going to be an adventure to say the least. I am excited to be a part of it.”
– GARY YOUNG” – Odyssey
“Big news time! After being the team manager from our inception in April of 2005, I’ve decided it was time to focus on other duties at Sunday and step away from the team manager role. It’s been a great 8 years in this role, but Sunday has grown so much that it was time to bring on a new TM. In doing so, I would like to introduce Walter Pieringer as Sunday’s new TM. Walter’s an amazing photographer, filmer and trip organizer, so it make sense for him to step into this new role. He will also be working with Odyssey as their TM as well. Look for him and the rest of the Sunday team on the road starting soon.” -Jim Cielencki / Sunday
