Our friends from Pluse Size BMX had the chance to catch up with our boy Joey Cordova at the Salt Lake City Dew Tour and chat about his new Suzuki inspired Supercross setup. Joeys bikes are always good looking, he always tries to not only put motocross inspirations into his riding style but also into his bikes as well. He describes and compares the way he likes his bike to look as “factory”, meaning the awesome look with all the best parts. Joey has some great sponsors like Supercross BMX and Joes Bike Shop who help contribute to his needs to make his bikes safe in order for him to bust moves like no hand flips and cordova flips which you will see in this video below. I wanna say thanks to Plus Size BMX for this cool piece done on Joey, it came out rad and his bike looks awesome.
This weekend is the 3rd stop of the Dew Action Sports tour and 2nd stop for BMX dirt. Joey Cordova, Matt Cordova and TJ Ellis were in full effect hucking the rad jumps designed by BMX legend TJ Lavin. Although the Sullen BMX didn’t make the finals, they were still flowing the course with style and were a huge presence as the cameras and reporters followed there every move. ” The lineup is stacked this year so just be contending is a blessing”, ” I can do only what I can do and the rest lays in the judges hands” says Joey referring to his Thursday runs as he was super bummed he didn’t make the cut to prelims. Joey was the only person throwing the biggest no hand flips and the ONLY one doing a cordova flip which that right there no one understood why he didn’t advance.
Matt Cordova, younger brother of Joey was absolutely killing it with style, as I was on twitter getting updates companies like Plus Size BMX and Ride BMX were tweeting that Matt had the most style out there and it showed as he finished .12th of a point from advancing putting him in 6th place.
TJ Ellis coming off a first place victory from Vans Kill the Line in France a few days ago seemed to be putting it down and had momentum from the win but maybe traveling so much lately might have gotten to him a bit, but from what I saw TJ should of made it into the finals.
The next and final stop (next month) in Vegas is always a fun one as the guys lay it all out on the line for there last attempt at the Dew Cup trophy. I would say all in all the guys rode awesome and we are so stoked that no one got hurt and is able to ride another day. Check out the pics above compliments of Fat Tony from Ride BMX as well as the video below.
Yesterday my good friend Dylan Pfohl released this rad video of Sullen athlete Joey Cordova practicing at Corey Nastazio’s house while visiting Woodward West. This edit is awesome, rad color, great cinematography and most of all the stellar riding, gotta love Joey’ riding so enjoy.
Kris Fox and Joey Cordova are roommates and teammates that ride with each other on a regular basis, but they have completely different styles on a bike. We caught up with them at their local dirt jumping spot one evening for a photo shoot and to get to know them a little better in this week’s Friday Interview…
Name: Kris Fox
Location: Wrightwood, CA
Sponsors: SE Bikes, Sullen Clothing, Da Compound Ramp Park
Name: Joey Cordova
Location: Wrightwood, CA
Sponsors: Supercross BMX, Sullen Clothing, Team Soil, Joe’s Bike Shop, Da Compound Ramp Park
Explain how you two met and how you ended up living together…
Kris: It’s a pretty long story. We grew up racing together when we were both really young and did not know each other at all. In 2008 I was living at the Olympic Training Center and Joey got invited there to build the trails on the facility. We started riding more and more and I was living solo at the time, so I brought up Joey moving in and splitting rent. It worked out perfectly, and now we ride bikes and help each other progress on a daily basis.
Joey: I remember first seeing Kris back when I raced. I would occasionally see him at a national, but I didn’t officially meet him until I went to the Olympic Training Center to rebuild the dirt jumps they had there at the time. Kris and a couple of AA pros were living there. Kris was the only one who came out and helped shape a few lips and helped me ride in the jumps, which I thought was pretty cool of him. After that we didn’t talk much until I got picked up by Supercross. Once I was on Supercross we started riding together quite a bit, and at the time I was working at Target. It was just a seasonal job and when I was let go I didn’t know what I was going to do for income. I was thinking I was going to have to move back to Colorado, which wasn’t where I wanted to be. Kris and his family are an amazing group of individuals, and they helped me out and said I could live with Kris at the Cozy Cabin. I can’t thank them enough for everything.

This past weekend TJ Ellis and Joey Cordova traveled to San Jose, CA to compete in the 2nd annual Warriors of Wood contest put on by Ryan Nyquist. After talking to the guys it seemed as if there was some stiff competition but were very focused and last years champion TJ Ellis was looking for nothing less then a gold belt. So far with TJ back from his injury he has either gotten top 3 or won all contests he has entered except for one. TJ is definitely back and on a terror which earned him the champion spot yet again setting himself apart from the rest of the crew. Joey earned himself a close 4th as he said any of the guys from 2nd to 5th could of got second. Sullen is so stoked for the guys and are really taking Sullen to higher levels and can’t thanks the guys enough for the support. Click the picture below to view more pics and a write up by Fat Tony whos was there for all the action.
Â Yesterday I went and met up withÂ the SullenÂ bmx team at DA Compound and shot some footage and photos. They were holding a park contest for all who wanted to participate and try and earn a top 3 position in each class to get the invite to Woodward West. With that being said you know dudes were throwing down because that camp can be pricey. Not only an invite to Woodward but some great sponsors donated some products to the top 3 winners as well like S&M frames, tires, bars and bar ends stuff like that which the younger non sponsored riders were amped on.
TJ Ellis was finally back on the bike after 4 months of pain and suffering of nerve damage in his ankle but that didn’t stop him from throwing down on the dirt jumps, I caught him getting loose a few times and even spotted him busting flips. Joey Cordova was all over the place sessioning all aspects of the park while trying to figure out if he wanted to enter the contest ( i guess when your big time you can enter a contest last minute ) which led to him watching on the side lines. Larry Edgar on the other hand was absolutely killing it earning himÂ a second place finish, Larry practically lives there so he loves competition. When someone is busting and everyone is oooing and awwwing expect to see Larry bust bigger. The day was a great day as I saw Sullen everywhere, stickers everywhere, kids sporting it on there helmets and bikes, it was great to see that DA Compound owner ShaneÂ supports the movement. Check out the pics below to see what went down, hope you enjoy and leave a comment.
