Matt Jones’ riding oozes creativity and nerves of steel. In a new Red Bull TV series called ‘Design & Conquer,’ Matt and his twin brother, Jono, show what it takes to imagine, plan, and execute tricks that have never been done before.

Matt Jones performs a gainer flip during Design and Conquer.

All four episodes of the series are now available on Red Bull TV with episodes dropping weekly on YouTube.

Matt starts the series with a goal: to pull off three tricks that no one in the world has tried. With a bit of help from his friends, Matt goes through the process of experimenting and re-experimenting to bring his visions to life.

The series is produced in partnership with Ford.

 Yes yes... let’s not forget these projects take money. Sponsors give money for said projects. I can stand a few red bull cans and raptors if it keeps Matt on the way to fulfilling his dreams.

 Totally read this title wrong, thought it was "Journey to land first world tricks" and would include things like a "Tabletop over healthy vegan meal".
Went away disappointed.

 The Lambo is a bit faster, but you know, the Raptor can carry more. Decisions, decisions.

 Ben Boyko and I used to take ours to the UBC Pool in Vancouver and ride off the 5m beck. Its how we dialed in spinning drops. They where cool with it for the longest time too. We cleaned out all the grease out of the bearings before hand. \

 I love the redbull Danny, Matt, Fabio, etc videos and love the making of series about as much. This perfectly marries them but leaves out the very produced part. I'm guessing we'll se more of these mini series.
