More Queenstown…

Dropped by the public trails here in Queenstown, New Zealand today & they look really good. We were here a few years ago with the team & the trails have progressed so much since then. So many lines it looks really fun. It’s pretty cool that these are council backed & endorsed. They even pay someone to keep them in top condition. If only more councils were this behind trails around the world.

Dejavu review…

There is a pretty solid review about Simon O’Brien‘s DVD over on Global-Flat, well worth the read. You can also check out the promo for it here.


Right now I am over in New Zealand in Queenstown on a little holiday. I was here a few years ago with the team & we rode the park in town. It has been completely changed since then & I snapped these iPhone shots today. Keen to come over one day again for sure, looks fun as.

Valvo checks in…

Henrique Castro from Brazil sent a quick little email to say that like here in Australia, it has been raining heaps of late & so his riding time has been short. But he did get out the other day in between rain showers to have a roll in his local streets with some mates. Valvo recently put together a Teddy frame & he is loving it. Thanks to Marcelo at Dream BMX for looking after Valvo over there for us.

Yo yo !!

New bike for Tobias…

When all round German good guy, Tobias Wicke emailed me saying he would like to ride some Colony parts I was stoked. I have known Tobias for a long time now & have always looked up to his riding as well. Such a legend. I was stoked to see he chose a Teddy frame as his frame of choice packed along with plenty of our parts as well. Pretty much almost an all Colony bike. Thanks for the support Tobias, enjoy the new bike !!

Simon O’Brien sent in a quick email on some stuff he has been up to of late, read on below. Simon also heads over to Japan next month as well.

“The other day made the 7 hour trip out past Albury to Mulwala Lake where I did a demo on the Friday night and Saturday with the Showtime FMX crew. Good times hanging out riding and partying.

I also took part in another of Shaun Gladwell’s art projects in Sydney. This project will
be shown in Melbourne in May. Again the topic is spinning but from a different angle, the footage looked amazing!” – Simon.
