That's right folks you read it correctly Eddy King the Diamondback LEGEND of BMX's glorious 80's era is now making a comback to racing at this years ABA Grands in Tulsa OK this month. Look out for Eddy in the 41 and over Expert class dressed head to toe in the yellow and black colours of STAY STRONG.
Eddy made the trip out to Riverside CA this past weekend with Freeagent TM Dale Holmes to meet STEPHEN MURRAY at his home and personally collect his Jersey for his special comeback race.
Eddy has been following STEPHEN'S progress online since his accident back in June 2007 and has been inspired by his positive outlook on life since becoming paralyzed from the shoulders down. Eddy contacted us saying he wanted to represent STEPHEN and his cause and promote his brand STAY STRONG and said he'd be honoured to race in his jersey. The feeling was mutual as STEPHEN was stoked to say the least so the meeting was set up. The jersey's had been freshly delivered from Hot Shoppe that morning. We'd like to thank Dave Marietti for the co-sponsorship on this project. STAY STRONG will be selling these replica jersey's very soon so watch this space for more details over the next couple weeks on where to order yours!
It's good to see BMX LEGENDS from 3 decades all together in one photo promoting the same cause. The guys chatted and laughed about the old days and Eddy's visit definately gave STEPHEN a much needed lift and the smile on his face say's it all.
Eddy King is a true gent and we at STAY STRONG are proud he will be wearing our colours for his much anticipated comeback to BMX racing.
Good luck in Tulsa Eddy and thank you again from STAY STRONG and STEPHEN MURRAY.
JERSEY ORDERING INFO WILL BE POSTED VERY SHORTLY, THANK YOU
