Maris Strombergs and Bill Ryan of Supercross BMX have officially joined forces. Over the last couple of weeks there were rumors that this partnership was in the works. The two-time Olympic gold medalist from Latvia made a couple of teaser posts relating to his new ride, and many speculated that SX was the mystery machine he would be sporting. Sure enough that was confirmed yesterday. Bill Ryan sent us the following release…

“It's official, Supercross BMX is proud to announce Maris Strombergs is joining the Supercross BMX Family.
Maris and Supercross have a relationship that goes back years, Supercross BMX founder / owner Bill Ryan said, "We have known Maris for years and he has always been a great friend, I am glad to get him on a Supercross in his pursuit of another USA BMX #1 Pro Title and World Championship . "
Maris said, "I'm very excited to join Supercross BMX Family. I feel their carbon bikes fit my riding style. Not only does it look great but its strong and rides fast! "
With Maris joining Anthony Dean on the Supercross BMX team, there are now 2 Olympians putting their Supercross ENVY BLK's on the podium for what we feel is the ultimate One /Two punch in the Men’s Elite class.
Although Maris is an official part of the Supercross BMX team, Maris will carry on with his own personal co-sponsors of Rockstar Energy, Faith Racewear, Bell Helmets, Tangent, Ride 100% and Supercross Team Co-sponsors of Speedline Parts, ODI Grips and KMC Chains.”
It looks like “The Machine” is now fully geared up to chase down some more titles before calling it a phenomenal career and hanging up his cleats. We couldn’t be more stoked to see this partnership. Supercross continues to push the limits and bring on some of the best riders in the sport. Now, let’s see how many times the SX Elite Men duo of Strombergs and Dean share the podium together this season….
