Poland's Godziek Brothers Shred Woodward Camp

Dawid and Szymon Godziek continue their California roadtrip with a stop at Woodward's riding mecca.

Winter in Poland can be a bit discouraging for BMX and mountain bike riders, so the Godzieks pulled out their passports and headed for the U.S., keen to get sessions in at some of California's hottest spots.

Below is the second part of their roadtrip photostory (see part one here), which saw them taking advantage of all that Woodward Camp had to offer.

See more of the Godzieks at their athlete pages: Szymon and Dawid.
