“If Don’s return to racing was a tribute to determination and perserverance, On’s sponsorship of the three-time Olympian is a lesson in loyalty. Don’s contract with the eight-year-old shoe company was due to expire after the Hawaii Ironman. Instead of walking away, On decided to re-sign him for another three years.
“Our brand has been founded around athletes and optimism and the true athlete spirit,” said David Allemann, one of the company’s three founders. “When (the crash) happened, our team was there with him and was experiencing it first hand. That was kind of a fight or flight moment and we felt that it would be completely contrary to what our spirit was in terms of athleticism and optimism if we walked away. So we decided to fight together with Tim.”
And Don, who has been involved in the sport since his teenage high school years, fought hard. As he worked himself back into shape, Hinton and On were there to capture it all.”
