Here’s some sponsor news for you! Mongoose have decided to stack their already stacked team even more by adding Mykel Larrin to the team! This is some awesome news since Mykel has been crushing it for years and is one of the best dudes on and off the bike. Check out the official press release below with words from the team and Leigh Ramsdell about the news! Based on one of the photos, it looks like the team is already together so hopefully a new video will be coming along soon!
“Mongoose, a brand of Dorel Industries, Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.
A), today signed BMX pro, Mykel Larrin. A native of Racine, Wisconsin, Mykel began his BMX career just a two-hour drive from the current Mongoose headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. Known for his big air and fun-loving attitude, Mykel is a welcomed addition to the star-studded Mongoose team.
“When I think of someone being a positive role model with great values, Mykel Larrin is one of the first names that comes to mind,” said Mongoose Team Manager, Leigh Ramsdell. “Not only is Mykel one of the best to do it on a bike, but the incredibly sincere vibes you get from him are so refreshing. I’m super grateful to have Mykel represent Mongoose and BMX in general!”
Finding time to give back to the sport, Mykel has used the bike and his platform to create meaningful connections with people all over the world. One example of this selfless attitude was his participation in the Bikes Over Baghdad event in Iraq, which provided service men and women a well-deserved respite from their daily duties. When asked about his biggest accomplishments in the sport, Mykel points to the relationships he’s built, recognizing they wouldn’t have been possible without BMX. One of those relationships is with new teammate Nikita Ducarroz who stated, “When I heard Mykel was joining Mongoose, I got the biggest smile on my face. Mykel is BMX. He’s one of those dudes that makes you pumped to ride because he’s always having so much fun and truly embracing the word ‘freestyle’. I can’t think of a better representative for the sport, and for the brand.” From his local bike park, to global competitions, Mykel has left a path of positivity and will continue to
do so moving forward with Mongoose. The team is excited to welcome Mykel and help amplify his message and love for BMX.
“I’m beyond excited to have the privilege of joining the Mongoose team,” said Mykel. “Ever since I discovered BMX as a young kid, Mongoose has always been a staple in my community. It was a rite of passage whipping ‘the goose’ down the block. It’s an honor to represent the brand.”” – Mongoose BMX
