Flashback- The RECOVERY Process | Cole Martinez | Part 2 | FIRST RIDE BACK | 2018 for LEATT Protectives

Our Boy Cole Martinez had a crash at the 2018 Daytona Supercross that left him sidelined with a badly broken leg that required some serious hardware.

Before the crash, Cole was turning heads as he had just stepped up to the premiere class and hadn’t missed a main event since doing so.

In Part 1 we checked in with Cole over the healing months of his injury and got to find out all the details on the crash, what injuries he sustained, how the decision to keep racing wasn’t an easy one, and much more.

In Part 2 it is the big first day back on the bike & Cole starts GoPro’n his day first thing in the AM starting with his warm up routine, packing his gear bag, & loading up for the track, all with his toddler watching on.

I met up with him at Pala Raceway to catch up with him and grab some more content for this piece!

Shout out to Cole for snagging some quality shots for this video, & to Leatt Protectives for the opportunity!

How Venezuela’s LORENZO LOCURCIO came to America | Produced for Leatt Protectives | 2019

Last year after working the ATL Sx for both GoPro & Leatt, I took a short flight to Orlando instead of flying home to Southern California.

I spent the week leading into the Daytona Supercross at Moto Sandbox & Bakers Factory in Florida, shooting with the Athletes Leatt Protectives had on their roster that season.

One of which was Venezuela’s Lorenzo Locurcio.

Lorenzo & his Family are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, & after hearing his story of their journey to the U.S. from his native Homeland, you’ll understand why.

You know what they say. “Dreams only work, if you do.”

One of our favorite pieces with one of our favorite riders to work with.

UNMASKED – MCR/LEATT PROTECTIVES JUSTIN HILL

I recently linked up with the @motoconcepts @officialleatt Boys straight out of quarantine to get their thoughts on 2020 and what keeps them coming back to dirt bikes for more…First up is @justinhill46 🤘🏼

Just like his older Brother, Justin oozes talent..

Got the @vincefriese piece “cookin” up as I type this.

The Return To Riding w/ Justin Hill, Friese, and Stewart.

With the most recent talk in the Moto world that the 2020 Supercross series MIGHT kick back off again in late May, riders have started hitting the practice tracks in order to “knock the rust off” and get back to racing form before the gate re-drops on the 2020 season.

I made the 40 minute drive to the Honda test track in Corona CA on both Tuesday and Thursday to shoot with the SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/Motoconcepts Honda Boys Vince Friese & Justin Hill for Leatt Protectives.

I also threw a GoPro on Malcolm Stewart, and put together a little something for his IG. Both Malcolm and his Brother James have ran GoPro’s for us at the races in the past so it was cool to “reunite” and “push his (GoPro) buttons” again.

Even when I am not the one riding I still enjoy being back at the track and around dirt bikes. It’s good to be “back” – JB

I’ve been spending more time lately flying my GoPro Karma and decided to bust it out both days I was at the track. I dig how it gives this video that feeling of “Freedom” with everything going on around the globe.
Vince pounded out quite a few laps and looks ready to go after just a day or two on the bike.
When you have the talent that the Hill Boys do, you can not leave the house for a year and still float around a SX track effortlessly the first day back.
Being a Stewart means you’re just flat out fast and fun to watch ride a dirt bike.




Sometimes I pretend to be a photographer too. (Some are GoPro Screenshots)

Throwback: In The Moment w/ Leatt Protectives Cole Martinez (ATL SX 2018)

I’ll be heading to Atlanta tomorrow for round 9 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series to do my thing for GoPro and Leatt Protectives so let’s take another trip down memory lane with this video I put together 2 years ago from ATL SX with at the time, Leatt’s Cole Martinez.

This video really shows off the Privateer’s journey and what it takes for some of these guys to make it race to race. Enjoy.

Cole is a good and fun dude to be around!

Throwback: GoPro Presents -Behind The Scenes w/ Jordon Smith

This weekend in Tampa FL marks the opening round of the 250 East Division in the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series where Jordon Smith will be racing for the first time in 2020 aboard his newest ride with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki and it reminded me of our shoot for GoPro & Troy Lee Designs Race Team we once did.

In late 2016 Jordon joined the Troy Lee Designs, RedBull, KTM Team, and with GoPro also being a big title sponsor, I was called up to do a video on the new recruit and his transition to the team.

Bummed he’s no longer on a GoPro Sponsored team but he’s in good hands and I am excited to see what he does on a PC bike this Saturday.

For now let’s take a trip down memory lane on this “Throwback Thursday”.

From GoPro Motosports YouTube:

Take a look at Jordon Smith’s race preparation for the 2017 Supercross season with his new ride on Troy Lee Designs.

Shot 100% by Jarred Browne on the HERO4® camera from http://GoPro.com.

Jordon is a Fun One to Watch! Kid never gives up and isn’t afraid to “send it”.
