I’ll say it, this is the best video I’ve ever made. Matt does tech tricks nobody’s doing, he does big shit, he flows soooo good, and he’s got a smile on his face the whole time. Seriously though, what more could you ask for? Matt put in a ton of work for this one, and I couldn’t be more stoked on how it turned out. Enjoy!
We had such a good time on our last QBP trip we decided to do another. This time around we loaded Tom Dugan, Jacob Cable, Travis Hughes, and Justin Spriet into the Sprinter and cruised SoCal spots for a week. As you might expect with Southern California, the weather was awesome and the spots were plentiful, and with conditions like that of course everybody killed it. Also Jacob Cable did what must certainly be one of the best nose manuals ever done, so hit play and enjoy. Huge thanks to QBP for making this one possible!
Chicago: known for wind, hotdogs, pizza, Michael Jordan, the Bean, and apparently really good spots. All of that except the wind sounded good to us, so to Chicago we headed with Aaron Ross, Tom Dugan, Grant Germain, Matt Nordstrom, and Jared Swafford. We posted up in a fancy loft and hit the streets every day for a week, and this is what we came up with. Chicago is awesome.
I’m just gonna come right out and say it – Gary killed it for this, his first-ever all-street video. Gary’s been collecting footage for this one for a while now, and I think what he’s ended up with has been well worth the wait. Sit back, relax, and enjoy three minutes of Gary Young shredding from San Diego to Spain.
After hanging out at a contest deep in the jungles of Ecuador, Broc Raiford and Hoang Tran headed to Quito, a massive city almost 10,000 feet above sea level. Check out part two of this two-part series that focuses on the street riding they did while in Quito.
Broc Raiford and Hoang Tran got the invite to Ecuador to hang out at El Coca Extremo, a contest a remote jungle town deep in the Amazon rainforest. That sounded awesome, so we jumped on the opportunity and afterwards headed to Quito, Ecuador’s capital and thriving metropolis, for some street riding. Check out part one of this two-part series that focuses on our journey to Coca and our time at the contest, and stay tuned for the street riding edit on Monday.
We gathered up some of Odyssey‘s and Empire‘s finest riders – Aaron Ross, Tom Dugan, Sean Sexton, and Tom Smith – and ventured to one of the most interesting and exotic locations we could think of. We ended up with one hell of an adventure, a bunch of stories, a sweet Ride UK magazine article, and this video. I hope you enjoy.
