This year’s Team Tigé is the strongest, with the most talented, innovative and cohesive group of riders ever. The addition of young riders such as Tino and Keith really gives Team Tigé a strong contest presence, as well as Erik’s 2002 domination. We look set for podium finishes all year. We also now have a great balance of spinning, technical and just plain going-big styles between Erik, Keith and Tino. “Daniel has really ridden his best ever since Rio in November and winning the Aussie Pro Tour,” said Bischoff, Team Manager for Tigé.
Team Tigé will compete at all events this year on the pro wakeboard tour. Chris Bischoff and Cathy Williams both have scheduled nationwide traveling tours and clinics this summer throughout the entire dealer network.
