COREY WALSH: Full Speed through Portugal

Words, photos and video by Robin Pearson

So… Corey Walsh goes FAST.

Straight after placing 2nd at the Vans BMX Pro Cup in Malaga, Corey Walsh headed over to Portugal. He cruised around with a tight crew including Jason Watts, riding gnarly concrete, camping wild, roasting transitions and having a badass time.

Watching Corey dominate the parks of Portugal with such ease was a treat to watch. It really is all about the speed… Coming from a race background, Corey knows how to hit things at full tilt and is far from shy when it comes to sending gaps. Some of these parks seemed to be built with him in mind!

Sunset session at the DIY spot was fully rad.

Probably the gnarliest thing I saw Corey do was ride that green pool. It’s a skatepark pool, but it rides like the real deal… Actually, it’s harder. I’ve ridden real pools that are easier to ride. For real. Corey completely murdered it, regardless.

Pool service with Corey Walsh and Jason Watts…

Check out Corey’s BIKE CHECK to see the steed he uses for all this concrete radness.
