When developing the concept of a youth program that targeted young DH racers to step up and become the heroes of this generation of the MTB world, the Marzocchi GoPro DH Team knew they needed a killer web presence and online marketing campaign. Marzocchi GoPro knew exactly who to go to for a project like this and recruited WIDSIX.com, a company that is in the Athlete Digital Branding Industry. When approached about the concept, Roope, President of WIDSIX.com, was immediately on board. “When the Marzocchi GoPro DH team approached us about being involved in this project, we were STOKED! There is a huge lack of kids in the industry. DH has become a rich 30 year old’s sport and this is a huge step in bringing the youth back into the forefront. The youth are the future!” For more information about this program, please visit: Marzocchi-GoPro-DH.com
WIDSIX was also the driving force behind ColdAsIce.TV, a website that follows the antics of 3 female professional skiers (Grete Eliassen – GreteEliassen.com, Keri Herman and Meg Olenick). The Cold As Ice TV project, with title sponsors WebItDesigns.com and GoPro HD Cameras, and gear sponsors Discrete Headwear (DiscreteHeadwear.com) and Flylow Gear (FlylowGear.com), helps promote the female pro skiers and sponsors involved, as well as, promoting outdoors activities to young females and encouraging participation in outdoor sports. At WIDSIX, the driving force behind projects is not financial; the main goal is to have a positive effect on the global sports industry, one market and one sport at a time. When asked about working with WIDSIX on projects, Julian Carr, Founder of Discrete Headwear, said, “Discrete is happy to partner because they support athletes that like to experience the mountains and share with everyone via the digital medium! Let’s tell some stories!”
