James Stentiford, who is team manager, is looking forward to the new season ahead:
‘I’m stoked to have Billy on the team and look forward to riding and working with one of the most promising young riders in the UK, especially with slopestyle confirmed for the 2014 winter Olympics. I’m also excited to have Fin and Jamie on-board. Should make for some epic team trips!’
