SNN, The Suncoast News Network got to speak to the Double Olympic Champion Maris Strombergs during some track testing. We're looking forward to have Maris back later this year for the World Cup finals. See video above.
Channel 8 from the Tampa Bay Area stopped by the track on Friday to check out the renovated track and to take in the training by the Latvian and New Zealand National teams. Sarah Walker from New Zealand, 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist was there for some training for the UCI BMX Worlds Championships which will be held next week in Medellin, Colombia. A quote from Sarah during her interview should not just be for BMX, we need to apply it to our everyday life. "It's not about the medal, it's about the whole journey leading into it."
