"It's not about being the first or being right, it's about believing in yourself because you know something is possible," he said.
"This was easily one of the most ambitious projects we've ever attempted to produce. Robbie is equally as visionary as he is talented on a dirt bike and we’re happy to have enabled him to truly defy convention," added Jeff Taylor, DC Shoes Global Brand Leader.
