Orient Express remains MIROCK PST sponsor & U.S. Nationals Sponsor

”The Orient Express Pro Street class draws a lot of media exposure, and bikes are being built and purchased worldwide. That is pretty incredible to think that what these riders are doing here in the states sends ripples across the globe. We have had riders from South Africa, and the UK compete already and have new riders from Aruba and New Zealand that plan to participate in MIROCK in 2013.” Stated by MIROCK’s Promoter Jason Miller.
