If it’s high speed, big transition ripping, trail roasting action you’re after, you can’t get much better than the man behind the constant smile – Cody Pollard. He just landed his childhood dream sponsorship in the form of T-1 – watch him tear it up just before the Lockdown hit and cut things short.
“Most kids never realise their dream of being hooked up or riding for a team, let alone end up representing their all-time favourite company. Fortunately for Cody Pollard this is now his reality.
Cody is one of those riders that the whole park stops to watch. He wears a permanent smile that still stands out from 10 feet above coping. It’s hard to see Cody ride and not get pumped to pick up your own bike. Off the bike is the same story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone as present, nonjudgmental and authentic. These things must have struck a chord with Joe Rich when he first met Cody at the Vans Pro Cup in Sydney and the rest is history.
We had grand plans to film a whole lot more for this video. After all, when you’re riding for your dream sponsor it adds a bit of pressure to make something really special. The virus lockdown in Australia had other plans though and with skateparks being off-limits for the foreseeable future, we decided to release what we’d filmed already. Enjoy.” – LUX BMX
