Chris Rost x David Cortez // Riders Be Ridin

BY THE POWER OF INSTAGRAM!!!

Yup, so I was just chilling, playing with my son and I saw David Cortez post this spot. “I know this spot” said I, and away I zoomed to meet up and take a couple snaps (Editors Note: Don’t worry, Isaac was in good hands with his mom.)

I love impromptu meet ups of the radest kind. Chris and David always have such good perspective on creating lines in spots like this. It definitely meshes with the Ride x Create vibe. To view something that most see as nothing is the goal. These guys dominated that goal.

I thought… get in dem bushes… and I did.

David was a hard dude to capture.  This was the beginning of his line so he was flying.  Chris was a bit easier to capture since he already had a couple feet grinded. Slowed him a bit, and I could snap away.

“Chrome Industries Wows Interbike”

Chrome MTBR

And rightfully so! Chrome’s been bringing the heat for many moons!

“‘I have to say the Chrome booth is by far the coolest booth at the show,’ said an employee of a direct competitor who asked not to be identified. ‘When you see the energy and enthusiasm happening there, everything else seems kinda lame.'” – Don Palermini

I love this write up.  It really shows how Chrome separates themselves from their peers and pushes to bring that American made Industrial/punk rock feel to the urban scene.

Cheers to you Chrome! You win.
