Catching up with 2 x Olympic Champion Maris Strombergs

A couple of weeks ago Kenny Hunter and I headed up to Temecula to meet up with Maris Strombergs to shoot some photos at the pump track then headed over to his house to film an interview.

We talk about Maris getting back into BMX a little more lately, coaching and potentially working with China on their BMX program alongside thoughts on today’s racing, some of the guys on top at the moment in the Elite class going into Paris in 2024.

We turn back the clock a bit and talk about Maris moving to the US after winning the 08 Olympic Games, battling with Kyle Bennett and Randy Stumpfhauser for the ABA Title, the London Games, not worried about having guys like Sam Willoughby and Mike Day behind him on a 3rd straight on any Supercross track, playing golf, having kids and much more.
