Then & Now – Martin “Oggy” Ogden.

This week’s Then & Now is with all round bike legend Martin Ogden .
Oggy has been racing BMX and MTB for as long as I can remember and he has always been up at the top of his game, always in the finals and has many No1’s and titles over the years, he also has the ability to make small children cry just by growling at them!!!

Check him and his “Martin Ogden Race Team” out next time you are at the races , and go and say hi.

Bike then.
TNT xl frame, loaded with all TNT parts hubs etc and Profile cranks

-Bike now.
identiti krisis xxl loaded with Halo and Gusset parts.

Fav track then.
Farnham for sure, I don’t think there was moto when I didn’t get on the gate and near soil my pants, could add in High Wycombe too, so fast.

Fav track now .
I’ll have to go with Heywood, its so much fun, i’m not really liking the new style race track, i’m not naming clubs or tracks but race tracks of today seem to be great to ride, session a straight or 2 but actually racing on them sucks.

Fav rider then.
It has to be Christophe Leveque, power, skill, style he had it all and also showed the US pros whats up when he went out there

Fav rider now .
Tough one, lots of rad yowths around, i’m going with Kelvin Batey, part time rider, full time teacher and still hangs with the elite yowths, bloomy too cause he’s old too ha.

Music then .
Anything aggro, loud guitars, screaming, shouting.
(BMXTalk- Hmm ok , how about these 2 )

Music now.
Pretty much the same lol

Cheers Oggy , good luck to you and the team for the rest of the season.
