Contender: a staple of the print mag that for years showcased upcoming UK talent in its infancy. Billy Morgan had one, Jamie Nicholls had one, Will Smith, Ollie Dutton... the list of now big names from the UK scene that kicked it off with a featured page in Whitelines goes on and on. So it's with great pleasure that we bring you the first of many new, digital contenders to come, starting with Josh Ogden.

With a raw, powerful riding style that starts in the park but stretches all over the mountain, Josh honed his abilities in the MK before taking them out for a spin in the ALps this winter. Watch out for this one, he's a true Contender.
