CCS Rider David Gonzalez is unstoppable. It seems that if there’s coverage to be had, he’s there in the mix putting down something unmistakably burly.
On his recent visit to New York for Manny Mania, we shot David for his new CCS Catalog Cover and pressed him for answers to a few of our What’s.
See how it all turned out.
