Random pics…

Here are a few random pics from our trip down from Vegas to San Diego. Thanks to Ryan for the pics.

Our rental is rather packed.

Driving down on the wrong side of the road for me.

Chris & his girl April.

There isn’t much to look at between Vegas & Cali except desert.

In San Diego now…

Myself, Guettler & Ryan’s friend Josh Boatright, arrived into San Diego last night & meet up with Steve Woodward & his mates. We had a bit of a night out on the town & witnessed the Woodward show in full effect. The man is an animal on & off the bike, it was a fun night. Today we are gonna go ride the Mission Valley park we have all seen so much of in videos & magazines. Should be a blast.

Alex Hiam wins Spinal Disorder

I just got an email from John B that Alex Hiam won the Am class of Spinal Disorder in Melbourne on the weekend. Stoked. Alex killed it from what I am told & truly showed his skills on a bike. I am so very proud of him & gotta thank him for repping Colony & being such a cool kid. You rule Alex!

Nora Cup

Wow… I don’t remember much but I am pretty sure it was a great time. So many people I haven’t seen in ages it was so good to see them all. Some people won awards, everyone enjoyed the free drinks, the Levi’s DVD played but the highlight was seeing Stephen Murray there who presented the dirt award, which Bohan won once again. Many thanks go to Ride BMX for putting on a great night.

Welcome to Vegas!

Yo… after a mammoth trip & having no sleep in over 36 hours I have just woke up to my first day here in Vegas. It’s freaking hot! I’m here for Interbike this week & then will be doing a small trip throughout California with Guettler for a week & a half. Should be good times ahead I am sure. Really looking forward to Nora Cup Wednesday night. If you’re going to be at Interbike this week make sure you come by the Tip Plus booth #5149 & check out our full 2009 range.

We have a winner!

Richo’s bike has been bought up after a pretty successful auction. We had many bid’s & I thank everyone who placed one. But it went in the end to a friend of Nick’s for $700. We even had one bid for $1,500 after the auction had ended! However, the bike will be put to good use as it’s the way for his friend to get back into riding after a few years off, so all is good.

Thanks again for all those that placed bids the cash raised will help pay off Nick’s medical debts. His operation by the way went very well & is on the long road to recovery very well.

Alex’s new bike…

Alex Hiam was down at Crossley Cycles today building up a new bike, well actually giving his new ride a custom paint job courtesy of Mick Lav. They did a pretty good job & it looks the goods.

Alex rides our 2009 Bloody Oath frame in the special ‘kids’ size. It features a 19.8″ TT with a 13.5″ rear end & weighs in at 4.2lbs. It’s aimed at the younger riders out there that want a high quality, light weight frame that also has the geometry to suit them.

They are shipping to selected countries now & will be available over the coming weeks depending where you live.

Old school pic…

I was looking through some old photos & came across this beauty of a pic. It’s features from left to right, Michael Canfield (one of the guys that introduced me to riding back in 1988), myself, Ryan Guettler (at around 8 years old) & Tim Wood. We had our own show team called, Wheels Entertainment & we did shows in & around Brisbane. This pic would have been taken around 1992. Pretty funny stuff.
