Maris Strombergs 2008 !!!!

2008 what a year for Strombergs!!!
Today we continue with the Maris Strombergs week , so after Maris’s first World title in 96 to win in the 9 yr old boys class he went on to a few European challenge titles in 2001 and 2005 .

Then in 2008 he had what can only be described as the perfect year , winning the Elite title in Europe, the World title and then the OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL !!! you couldn’t really ask for anything better could you, i am pretty sure that after the 2008 season many people would of thought that Maris had done all he could …..but he still keeps on truckin and winning races year after year, how far can he go …can he really do it 3 times??????
