Corey Salas joins Factory Supercross

Smilin Bill Ryan and all the stars of Factory Supercross are smilin a bit wider today, with news that 19-27x Simi Valley shredder, Corey Salas will join the team, effective immediately. The mid-season addition to the team was going to stay under wraps til Colorado a little later this month, but News go an early inside line.

We got a couple great shots of Corey in Desoto, and again in Ventura, which put him on the “hot sheet” of riders without a factory ride, who would be prime pickin for some sharp squad. Well, here we are!
