MADISON, Wis. - January, 2006 - GT is pleased to announce that it has re-signed dirt jumper Stephen Murray to the 2006 GT BMX team. A former X Games and Gravity Games gold medallist, Murray has been a pro rider since 1999.
"GT has always been the team that the best riders rode for. I'm stoked on riding for GT,"
. Murray's riding the new 2006 Fueler this year and will compete in the NBC Dew Action Sports Tour, The Worlds, a variety of U.K. dirt jump contests, and he'll host and hold Murray Jam '06.
Recently married and a daddy of two boys, Murray's a busy guy and he loves the lifestyle. "I'm lovin'it,"
said Murray. "(Being a dad) has given me a new outlook on life and changed me in different ways."
Murray says his favorite things about riding are overcoming fear and achieving the unachievable. "Riding takes my mind of off everything," he said. "It has taken me all around the world to see beautiful places and has led me to meet and become friends with interesting and amazing persons. Riding has also given me great opportunities leading to a family and life all stemming from BMX."
