When we all hit the point we have to grow up and get a job, most of us recline to our positions behind a desk showered in pale fluorescent light with mumbling disregard for our posture or dreams. That is the case...unless you're Pat Lopez. Pat serves VonZipper faithfully as the tip of the spear for our Motocross category. He wears all the hats. He helms marketing, sales, product development, collabs, events, etc. The dude IS motocross from our perspective. Dig through the drawers of his memory bank and you'll find, amongst many other things, a history of twisting grips with a high degree of success. He's fast. Not like, fast for a desk jockey. Fast like he can lap you on your best day without sweating, fast.
PLo was invited to a premier event that not many get a shiny envelope in the mail for: SurferCross. This event combines both racing on a dirt bike and surfing. Both are competitive and the combine score reveals a single winner in both a Pro class and an Industry class. The event has a heavy line up every year in both categories. Sunny Garcia, Dylan Lightfoot, Ronnie Renner, etc. As luck and skill would have it, our very own PLo took 2nd place in the Industry class!!!
We are so stoked to have this dude in the building and beyond pumped he did so well along with teammate Brett Dimanno! Congrats to both of you and glad to see you can still shake the dust off your bikes/boards and get pitted with the best of them! A full recap with photos and results can be found
