Coffs Harbour’s proposed new park…

After almost ten years of lobbying spear headed by Shane Conlon down in Coffs Harbour, they are getting closer to having a park built there. The budget set aside so far is $1million so they should get a pretty decent park finally. If you could show your support for the park by clicking the link here & submitting your email it will form another sign of support to the Coffs Harbour council. There are some people in the community against the new park but if we all show our support for it it will go ahead. Click the link here now & show your support.


As you can see above, Coffs Harbour needs your help, their park as it is now is terrible !!

Paddy Gross – Spring 2011

Here is some footage from Paddy Gross’s first outdoor session this spring at his home town park of Trier in Germany.

Yo yo !!

Paddy Gross checks in…

Paddy Gross the worldwide traveller out of Germany, sent in a quick update on what he has been up too… read on below.

OK, here’s my little something I’ve been up to in the last couple weeks. Well I’ve been riding heaps of demos as usual and besides that, finally the sun came out in Germany after a long winter. I was like “Hey my name is Spring and my friend Summer is on his way as well” Great conditions to ride outside and traveling 6 hours to the town (Trier) where I grew up and film a little session at my local park. I also went for a quick photo session to the new indoor park in Trier and had a heaps of fun at this place.

Between all of this I’ve also visited my Colony team mate Benny Paulsen’s backyard miniramp for a weekend and it´s been good hanging around sharing jokes, life and BMX.

A friend of mine from Slownia asked me for a little interview for his website Mellon BMX. I really appreciate when people wanna hear my opinion about things and if you interested to read it click here now.

So the contest season is pretty much about to start and I will hit up whatever seems fun to me and hope to get to see heaps new places and meet new people. I am constantly up to something like a workman who loves to tinker on things and like he knows how to use his screw driver, I know how to use my bike 🙂

I probably said this a hundred times already but why not going for 101 times, I love riding for Colony because everything couldn’t be better and since I’ve met the team now, I am even more proud to be a part of Colony.

Cheers, Paddy.

Brock Olive put together a new bike yesterday just because he wanted something a little shorter & a new colour. Brock’s choice of frame was a 20.5″ Teddy. The guys at Lux BMX were nice enough to slap it together for him too. They even convinced him to go 4 pegs too, making him pretty much unstoppable now, haha. Below is also a clip of his first trick on his new bike. Enjoy.
