Bay Area BMXers Sign With Supercross
Howard Cato and the Bay Area BMXers team have made some impressive moves, both on and off the track in recent years. In fact, one of the fan-fave episodes of the Announcers Tower podcast was with Howard and some of his crew, doing an intro to BMX event at a youth detention facility in Nor-Cal (link below).
For 2017, the 20-rider squad is plus-one, with the addition of 13G Grace Padilla, and also aboard a new frame sponsor, with Smilin Bill Ryan and Supercross BMX.
Here’s what the guys told News in a statement.
I want to give a big thanks to Bill Ryan at Supercross for the opportunity for Bay Area BMXers to be Co-Sponsored by his elite brand for 2017. I’m looking forward to a super year with our team and our new sponsors!
The Bay Area BMX team has made quite a bit of noise on the National scene and we are proud to be supporting them in their pursuit of the National #1 Bike Shop team. We know that between Bay Area BMX and Eric at Northwest BMX, you will be seeing many more Supercross’ leading the pack in Nor Cal and the Great Northwest.
Two great guys, with eyes on the prize! Here’s how the roster looks for 2017:
