Adventure beckons for Ollie Ollerton as he partners with Terratoura for mission Ama Dablam
In association with Terratoura, Davanti Tyres is sponsoring TV personality Ollie Ollerton as he embarks on an epic mountain climb in the Himalayas, Ama Dablam.
Terratoura has been designed to tackle extreme conditions from deserts to frozen icescapes to rocky terrains, so it is the perfect partner as Ollie undertakes his gruelling pre-deployment training schedule.
As adventure beckons for the former Special Forces soldier, Davanti Tyres has also kitted out Ollie’s VW Amarok with Terratoura’s to ensure he has predictable, reliable handling when travelling from A to B for crucial outdoor training ahead of the challenge.
Key features of the Terratoura include:
- 5 rib pattern design which provides exceptional performance both on and off-road. This tread design gives Terratoura assured traction in all weather conditions.
- Enhanced tread compound to deliver the durability required for off-road endurance, while providing excellent grip in cold and wet conditions.
- Tread support bars which are specially constructed to offer assured and stable on-road performance and low noise.
Davanti will be documenting Ollie’s training progress in the lead up to the challenge across its social channels, plus the highs and lows of the climb itself. Not only that, watch this space for a post-climb debrief with Ollie as he unveils more about the conditions he faced, his experiences of the trek and what he has learned from the adventure.
The trek will take place at the beginning of November, when Ollie will climb alongside Nims Purja, an experienced mountaineer and star of documentary, 14 Peaks Nothing Is Impossible.
“We are delighted to be supporting Ollie on his epic challenge. The ethos of our Terratoura tyres is adventure beckons and this symbolises the partnership with Ollie perfectly,” said Peter Cross, general manager from Davanti Tyres.
“We’re honoured to be a part of Ollie’s training journey prior to the climb and are excited to see him plant the Davanti flag when he reaches the summit! We wish him and Nims the very best as they undertake this amazing feat.”
Commenting on the challenge, Ollie Ollerton said:
“I’m excited! This is an amazing challenge for me and one that I’ve been training for both mentally and physically for an intense period of time, and we still have a way to go.
“I’m 52 this year and feel amazing. Challenges such as this keep me in a great state of mental health. I truly believe the focus should be on our mental wealth and how we are investing in ourselves daily; that’s the answer to good mental health in my opinion.
“I hope that me undertaking this challenge can inspire people to embrace the ethos behind ‘Adventure Beckons’ and use this to motivate some changes in their lives to ensure they’re making the most of every moment.
“I’m so appreciative of the partnership with Davanti, not only do they have an amazing product in the Terratoura tyre that is supporting my journey, they are also behind me all the way, supporting my training and all aspects of the challenge.”
