In December of last year (part of this year's NORA Cup calendar year), Dandois picked up a new bike sponsor in the form of Haro Bicycles. Haro had not sponsored a primarily flatland-oriented rider in over ten years, but Dandois' inclusion on the 2013 Haro team changed that for the better. His addition to the team signified a shift away from flatland-only brands, back to brands that focus on overall BMX.
