Shane Badman update…

Shane has been super busy of late, I will let him tell the story though…

It’s been a crazy past few months for sure. End of last year was hectic with trips to Japan, UK and Malaysia. In between I also headed to Melbourne for demos and finished up in December by going to China for a week to do more demos for their national TV station, CCTV. I got the invite for the 2 Guinness World Records that I got earlier in the year – pretty stoked on that and I heard that it was on Channel 7 in December as well but I missed seeing it, bummer!!

After getting back from China I hung around Brisbane a few days sorting a few things out with Newcircle as we were due to get the new complete Apprentice flatland bikes in (dope!). Then I hopped in my car and drove 2,520kms over the next 2 days to get back to Adelaide in time for Christmas – VW all the way yo! Bit of an epic trip dodging floods, messed up roads and Kangaroos… gotta love Australia!

Adelaide was sweet… hung out mostly, gotta bunch of riding in and kept it low-key. Chillin.

Because of all the floods I decided to come back a little early and made the 2,500km return trip to Brisbane… just in time to get back to the gnarliest floods that nearly swept the whole city away! As crazy as it was, good to hear that most people got through it ok, but a lot of people had a super tough time with it so I hope they pull through…

So now I’m looking forward to February as we have the first round of the Newcircle DownUnderground Flatland Series happening in Bridport in Tasmania over the 19th/20th – check it out if you’re down that way!
