During his seventeen years professional racing, Josh had thirteen world championship race wins, twice runner-up world champion, two British championships, one Belgium championship, one Italian championship and two Australian championships & 21 New Zealand championships.

In 2014, Altherm Window Systems come on board as title sponsor in New Zealand to assist with the growth of this winning team. Over the past three years, the team has won seven national titles and each year is going from strength to strength, not only with our riders and their performance and results but also growth internationally.
