XYO, the technology bringing blockchain to the real world, today announced it has signed Motocross superstar Justin Bogle as an official Brand Ambassador for 2019. As a supercross champion, over the past decade, Bogle has earned multiple regional and national titles for both indoor and outdoor events. XYO appreciates Justins strength, persistence and growing list of accomplishments over the course of his career and is proud to be aligned with Justin for the 2019 season.
Growing up in Oklahoma, Justin started riding at the young age of four, and has nurtured his passion for racing ever since. After a series of successes as an amateur, Justin turned pro in 2012 and has since racked up multiple supercross first and second-place standings in events nationwide, including the 2014 East Coast 250 Supercross Championship. In 2017 the momentum continued and among other accomplishments, Justin captured the overall win at the Budds Creek Motocross, which helped him secure sixth place overall in the final championship standings.
In addition to being a professional racer, Bogle is passionate about music and is part of the hip-hop/rap group Pak X Emh, whose 2014 album Highly Overdue was near the top of the charts of iTunes ˜most downloaded upon its release.
Im grateful to have caught the attention of the XYO team and really impressed with what theyve been doing as a business, said emerging Motocross superstar Justin Bogle. Putting our brands together really makes sense, and Im convinced that together were headed for major wins together this year.
At the San Diego Supercross to be held at PETCO Park in downtown San Diego, on February 2nd, Justin will be racing in the 450SX and is looking for a strong showing at the venue that derailed his 2018 campaign when he suffered a season-ending arm injury just 12 months ago. For 2019, Bogle is expected to become a consistent presence inside the top five during both the Supercross and Motocross races nationally.
Over the years, Justin has proven to be a force of nature, and relentless in his pursuit of success, commented XYO Co-Founder and CMO Scott Scheper. We share those important traits, mixed with a bit of irreverence, and see our relationship with Justin as a positive, successful collaboration between similar brands. We look forward to seeing Justin as he turns his intensity into even more wins in 2019, and youll see us at XYO doing the same, business-wise. Watch this space for big things from both teams.
