Team Suzuki Press Office – December 27.
Team MicroBilt/ PRBC Suzuki has announced its 2016 Monster Energy/ AMA Supercross line-up for the upcoming season with popular riders Ronnie Stewart and Vicki Golden joining the squad.
Stewart raced for Team MicroBilt/ PRBC during the 2015 outdoor season and Golden is new to the team for 2016.
Stewart, a 25-year-old native of Easton, Pennsylvania, has made a name for himself in the sport over the last few years, rising to be among the ranks of the best riders in the north east, before moving into the pro ranks. His hard work and determination has resulted in Stewart becoming a regular qualifier in the premier Supercross class over the last couple of seasons.
“I’m happy to be a part of Team MicroBilt/ PRBC again for 2016,” Stewart said. “I’m working hard to come back stronger than ever and hopefully I can make a solid charge during the second half of the season. It’s an honour to have Vicki part of the program too. Bringing her on board will shine a brighter spotlight on our team, which is great for our sponsors.”
Stewart is currently injured, having broken his wrist in a pre-season practice crash in mid-December, and will miss a number of Supercross rounds during his rehab. MicroBilt/ PRBC Suzuki is currently reviewing options to possibly enter a fill-in rider for Stewart as he makes his recovery.
