FOOTHILL RANCH, CA-- Arnette is proud to announce it has added pro BMX rider, Corey Martinez, to its family-like team.

Riding brakeless for the past two years, Corey attacks the streets with confidence, enthusiasm, creativity and a deep bag of stylish tricks. A proud yet humble recipient of multiple NORA Cup "Street Rider of the Year" awards, Corey is not only a talented, highly respected rider,but he is also an all-around good guy who genuinely loves BMX and gives back whenever possible.

"Having Corey on our team is great for Arnette," says Arnette Brand Manager, Joe Freitag. "His style, outgoing personality and positive attitude embody everything we stand for; not to mention he absolutely kills it on his bike. Look for big things to come from Arnette and Corey."

In addition to Arnette, Corey also rides for United Bike Co., Red Bull, Levi's, Duo,Cinema, Dan's Comp and Etnies.Find out more at: www.arnetteantics.com.
