Cory "Nasty" Nastazio


World-renowned dirt jumper Cory Nastazio is known for hucking some of the wildest moves in the history of the sport over jumps almost as big as his personality. With constant energy, the Nasty Dog is the life of the party, on-or-off the bike, and almost as much fun to witness in either scenario. Considered a well-decorated veteran of BMX, Cory is still pushing the boundaries of dirt jumping.
