Welcome to the first official POTD of vert riding. Aside from running the large vertical shot of Jamie Bestwick from X Games this year, the blog hasn't shown any love to the vert dogs. So here it is and a well deserved one too, to Coco Zurita. I would go on and on telling you all about Coco's amazing back story but Tunney's story from a couple months back, Vert's New Breed: Coco Zurita tells all.
"Coco Zurita's story of coming from Chile to America to pursue his BMX dreams is inspirational to say the least. He has worked incredibly hard to get to the position he is at and spends most of his days enjoying camp life at Woodward West where he calls home. Having the chance to watch him ride any vert ramp is a treat and this session was no different. Huge tuck in the rafters while keeping things fresh before the final round of the Dew Tour in Orlando". -Jeremy Pavia/Asst. Editor BMX Plus! Magazine
