My apologies for the delay! Maybe one day I’ll finally realize that I need to start the whole process of picking these out well before the end of the year rolls around. I thought I’d be able to hammer it out right at the beginning of January, but between traveling and being busy with a bunch of other stuff, I never had the time to fully devote to sitting down and giving this the attention it deserves. So, here we are, damn near the end of February and we’re just now taking a look back on what I thought were…
Those are three names that definitely grab your attention when you see them in a video title! 100% wanted to showcase their new gloves in the most stylish way possible, so they slapped them on the hands of Matt Cordova, Nathan Sykes and Larry Edgar, and let them loose on F.O.D. and Pinter’s Trails. Now the question I have is if those things can hold up to digging or the palm saturating humidity we’ve been dealing with here on the East Coast?
Matt Cordova and Nathan Sykes bring a good mix of style and tricks to F.O.D., Bundy and Wetlands in this latest edit in DIG’s “DIG Trails” series. It’s always a treat watching these guys roast their local spots but I can’t help but want to see what they would bring to some East Coast trails.
Matt Cordova and Mike Murfitt slam a bunch of high octane Oskar Blues Ten Fidys and then proceed to tear the REEB Ranch West a new one! FYI, I can only guarantee the second half of that statement to be true.
Matt Cordova takes it to all terrains in this promo for his new signature Demolition MC seat, but 02:52 is where you’ll want to head to get to the one that matters around here!
Intel has been using BMX pretty heavy as a vessel to test/promote their new Curie Module. What the hell is that you ask! It’s a six-axis sensor that combines accelerometers and gyroscopes to give you data such as speed, height, air time, and even the rotation of a tricks. From what I can gather, you would strap this thing to your bike and then access the data after your session (or possibly during with a phone). My question is if that’s really necessary? It might be kind of cool to know how fast or how high you were going, but…
This time of year always brings news of sponsorship changes and shakeups. I’m sure this one won’t set the internet on fire with the same ferocity as the news that Chase Hawk was cut from Odyssey, but it is worth mentioning. 2016 is looking good for Matt Cordova, as he’s gotten the bump up to the Demolition pro team (I can’t believe / had no idea he wasn’t on the pro team in the first place) and also found a spot on SE Bikes’ team of stylish West Coast riders. Definitely looking forward to seeing more from him this year!
Matt Cordova teamed up with photographer Joey Cobbs on a pretty out of the box nighttime photo shoot at the FOD Trails. It was complete with fog machines, colored lights, and Matt even did his best Keith Gower impression by rocking a headlamp. The photos turned out pretty amazing! You can check them out along with a quick interview and bike check on Matt’s ride over on Demolition’s site.
Ride has been pumping out the jumping trick how-tos lately. This newest one has Matt Cordova showing you how to do a nac nac seatgrab. I always think of Mike Aitken when I think of this trick but Matt’s are right up there with his.
Man, I was hoping this summer Demolition edit from Matt Cordova was going to be at least half trails, but unfortunately we only get a couple of nibbles at 01:58 and 02:19.
