Yo yo !!
Just as I was thinking to myself how good of a run Alex was having with injuries this year he goes and tears his ligaments in one of his ankles…
I was riding GC Compound all night on Sunday and then at the end of the session I decided to have a little skate. I tried to jump the mini spine and rolled my ankle and turns out I tore the ligaments in my ankle !!!
Stupid me trying to skate haha, I should just stick to bmx !!! I will be back in about 3 weeks hopefully !!!
Paddy gave us an update of things going down in the USA…
Hey everyone, hope your all doing good. I am doing fine and its slowly getting colder over here in beautiful Portland, Oregon but that doesn’t slow me down at all because we have a fun indoor park here now and if am spending heaps of time in there doing workshops with kids and riding. Next to that I am still filming for my upcoming edit and we’re super close to wrapping it up and it should be online in the next few weeks. I was riding my first high school demo a couple weeks ago for the national guard over here and I was stoked how many kids were freaking out about what I love to do the most, good times for sure!
I was also thinking about a BMX tattoo for a long time and I came to the conclusion that Colony is what I’ve always wanted and calling Clint one of my best, long time friends makes it all pretty much a dream come true. I already have the best memories with having the most amazing team mates and the bike I always wanted. The tattoo is a connection to
Colony, bmx, friendship and Australia since I know my roots are laying over there. I couldn’t think of anything else because it means so much to me being a part of the Colony family and I am proud to rep Colony wherever I go. Putting all of this in a tattoo will remind me for the rest of my life how amazing it is to ride a BMX bike with the support of one of my longtime friends who has started a company out of his own love for BMX. Thanks Clint, Colony and the team for writing more stories for my my book of life.
Courtenay shot through an update of what’s been happening of late…
“I’ve Been riding as much as I can with all my homies down the Gold Coast and was in the works of filming a new edit with my man Jack Birtles until I did a heap of ligaments in my ankle trying to get crazy! Things were getting off to a good start but hopefully only another 4 weeks until I’m back on and can continue filmin! Here’s a screen grab of what we started on! Will keep you guys in the loop on how this injury is going!”
This Sunday, RideOn BMX Store are hosting the final of the Core Series comps, we have been behind the Core Series forever so make sure you get down to show your support.
Jourdan took a trip out to Texas recently, here is what went down…
Just took a road trip up to Austin, TX from Riverside, CA recently with Larry Alvarado ,Dan Norvell and Ryan Costa and we had a blast! I wasn’t able to enter the Texas Toast contest because it was too full by the time i got there. We had fun cruising around with the locals Jabari Winters and Hersh Patel and we also ended up staying at their house. Thanks a lot for letting us stay with you guys. I ended up going to jail the first night in Austin for partying a little too hard, but it wasn’t too much of a big deal considering that I was able to get out the next morning. Hurt my hand that weekend at the local house skate park so i was not able to do too much filming due to this injury. Over all it was a good time and I’d love to do it again some day. Thanks Colony for helping me get out there.
A couple of days ago I ventured out to Warragul to shoot a photo with Dean, he killed it and hopefully we run the photo for an advert in the near future.Here is just a left over shot we had from the session.
Our 2nd drop of fresh new colours for our 2013 complete bikes arrive into Australia this week. They will be available in all good Colony dealers towards the end of the week depending where you live. Check back soon for full info in the days ahead… including news on a brand new model.
Yo yo !!
Mick sent through more updates from the trip.
This was the last stop of my Perth demo travels. and I tell ya, we definitely finished off with a bang.
For these shows we headed up to Kambalda for the car, ute and bike show. Kambalda is a 10 hour drive from Perth so quite the mission.
When we got there they had a little caravan set up for us and we were greeted by the locals and headed straight to the pub. The locals were very generous and kept the drinks flowing all night. The next morning was demo time the weather wasn’t the best, it was quite windy and it rained a little but we still smashed out the demos.
We were lucky enough to have some locals from Kalgoorlie do the demos with us and Josh from NZ had a roll too and let me tell you these boys shred! After the demos it was back to the pub for another epic night. Thanks to all the locals for there generosity and welcoming us in to there town. Your a great bunch of lads and I would love to come back again.
The next day we headed in to Kalgoorlie to put on a comp at the local park, it was a great day, the sun was shining and there was a massive turn out. For a small town there was no shortage of shredders. everyone rode hard but Josh come out with the win, he definitely showed a good mix of tech runs and some burly tricks not to mention being real dialed. Once again thanks to everyone who came out entered or just had a roll. We hit the town once again with some good people and lots of laugh’s before starting the 10 hour drive back to Perth.
I have to say a big thanks to Shawn Jarvis from Freestyle Now for hooking me up with the demos letting me stay at his house and making me feel part of the team. and to the rest of Perth its been a pleasure and I look forward to it again next year.
Courtenay took a slam on a flair whip the other night which ended in a fractured ankle. CC will be off the bike for 6 weeks so we wish him a speedy and solid recovery.
If you live in Australia, then soon you will be able to pick up our Hidden Agenda Tubes. Back in stock with a new improved butyl rubber formula & now available in 16″, 18″ & 20″ sizes.
