Double Olympic Champion Maris Strombergs came to the UK for a brilliant and unique event organised at Derby Race Track called 'Challenge The Machine'. The event was a success; participants battled it out setting times around the track and eliminating each other in different rounds of racing to work their way to battling Maris 'The Machine' Strombergs to try and take the win as the fastest rider! It looks incredibly fun and the feedback from the riders has been nothing but good, most riders revelling in meeting their idol.
Loft One12 were on hand for the day to capture the bar-to-bar racing, interview riders and of course catch up with Maris. They put together this awesome video so hit play below and check out the visuals!
Thanks to everyone involved and we hope to see this event coming to another track in the future!
Its awesome to see Emerson Morgan getting the recognition he so deserves!
He's been quietly killing it in the Bristol scene for many years and is doing his thing with Yate Tape. Em's got way more to give, this is just the beginning, make sure you keep up with him on Instagram - @emerrrrrson

I've known Tom almost as long as i've rode BMX, we grew up in BS3 on two wheels together. BMX partner in Crime, ex-Crucial shop employee and an absolute street demon with his own classic style. I was super pumped to see this edit by Joe Williams drop while we were in Barcelona!
