The 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series kicked off last weekend in Anaheim, CA and it has had us reflecting on the 5 previous years we’ve been attending the races with/for GoPro and Leatt Protectives. How we can step it up and show the world what we’re about.
This was a fun piece we did on what GoPro Hero5Black settings are used for MX/SX.
Thinking we should do something similar more often this season….Who would watch these types of videos from the races?
You may have heard that Leatt Protectives Cole Martinez became the “King of Stuttgart” over the weekend at the ADAC Supercross in Stuttgart Germany, but what you may not have heard was what he went through this year in order to get there.
Cole being the rad dude that he is, we worked together on documenting his “Recovery Process” the best we could from his injury sustained back in March. In Part 3 of the series we put together a video that covers a lot of his hard work since his crash at the Daytona Supercross and also catch up with him on whats new about his program the day before flying overseas.
Stoked for this guy! Proof of what happens when you put your mind to something! – JB
One of the fastest rising artists over the past couple of years, “6lack” (Black) is finally back with another heater. “Nonchalant” is the perfect label for this smooth, raspy voiced, vibey, track/video that he flows over effortlessly with fire lyrics. It leaves you feeling calm, yet motivated. Perfect for a Monday 👊🏼
Lyrics we felt: ‘I’m so f**king tired, somehow I still find the time To care a little more about my rhymes
To care a little more about my peers To think a little less about my fears To care a little more about your ears’
‘I give a piece of me to everybody I meet Not because they want it, it’s because it’s prolly in need
Claim they woke but they prolly asleep, In a cage, thinking if they’d make a mil’ They’ll be free like Meek, nah’
Linked up with Leatt Protectives Cole Martinez recently to capture his first day back on the bike for Part 2 of “The Recovery Process” and was stoked he was down to run the GoPro in one of our favorite locations. What we call “The Mug Shot”.
Check out this unique view of a lap around Pala Raceway and take note of how still Cole’s head remains while charging over all the obstacles.

Injuries aren’t fun but they’re apart of not just racing Moto, but life. And as the cliche quote goes “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Stoked for our Leatt/WJE Family member Cole Martinez who’s finally back on the bike after a severe leg injury. Check out this piece we recently made of that special first day back on the bike 👊🏼“You don’t realize how much you miss it.”During the last episode of The Recovery Process, our own Cole Martinez gave us all the details on his severe leg injury and how he had just made the tough decision to keep living the dream, racing his dirt bike. Part 2 covers the big day that all riders dream of while recovering from injury. The first day back on the bike. Get inside Cole’s head and life in this episode of The Recovery Process.🎥 @jarredbrowne#LeattFamily #ScienceOfThrill #Motocross
UnaF*ckinDilla. One of the most beautiful, treacherous, and flat out picture perfect examples of what Professional Motocross is all about. So in honor of the 49th annual running of the Unadilla Pro Motocross National this weekend, I’ve decided to share some of my experiences from the historical race track.
My first time at Unadilla was while I was still competing back in 2009. Which was my second year racing outdoors professionally. I had 9-9 Moto finishes for 11th overall (that hurt) which was my best overall finish at a professional outdoor national. 📸: @guyb
My second trip to Unadilla came in 2011, again while being a competitor. I had a pretty big crash at the Dallas Supercross earlier in the year and was trying to make a strong comeback from a dislocated wrist, shattered knee cap, and broken collarbone. I raced the first Moto and after barely being able to hang on at the end of the race, I decided not to line up for Moto 2. It didn’t go as smooth as my 09 trip but at least there’s this cool shot from practice!
My next trip to the Thrilla came in 2014, this time working for @gopro mounting the cameras and pushing all their athletes buttons. I hung up my racing boots in 2013 due to another big get off in Supercross and was stoked to be back at the races after spending some time away from it.
I was back at it again in 2015 and 2016 doing more with/for @gopro and I also starting working with @LeattProtectives creating content and making sure their athletes were taken care of at the races.
That’s it! Looking forward to my next trip! Maybe next year?-JB425
Get In the Moment with #LeattFamily member and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross competitor Lorenzo Locurcio who, after missing the first two rounds of this year’s MX season, came out on a mission since his return at round 3, swinging his way well into the top ten.
He updates us on what the transition from #Supercross to #Motocross was like, the struggles of being a Privateer trying to put together a program to go racing, and what its been like mixing it up with the best racers on the planet.
Leatt Family member Ryan Sipes has been a man on mission, not only throughout his career, but especially in 2018. Racing everything from Flat Track, to select rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series aboard a 125cc 2 – stroke.
We caught up with Ryan at the Tennessee National to chat about his decision behind racing the 125, how much his Family is involved in his racing, and what his career plans are moving forward.
