In Elizabeth, Adelaide this weekend is a competition at the Elizabeth park which also happens to be where Mick Bayzand is from. We are getting behind it so be sure to hit it up if you are in South Australia. Mick will even be there on the day.

Ryan just hooked us this link of the video from the Sheep Hills jam from his hospital bed. He is doing well by the way & will have a few more days in hospital before being released. If you know Ryan, you know he will be back in no time at all.
The jam was all for a good cause to raise funds for Boozer Mike, one of the original Sheep Hills locals who was paralysed last year in a racing incident. You can donate to the fund by clicking here now.
Video filmed & edited by Dylan Pfohl.

Ryan had surgery yesterday & his spleen ended up being removed. All went well though & he will be all good. Here are a few words from the man himself…
Thanks to everyone for the kind words. I just have to rest in the hospital for a few days, but keeps the messages coming they’re fun to read when I’m doped up on drugs haha – Ryan.

Shane has been a busy man of late…
Hey guys, It’s been a busy start of the year for me starting out in January doing some demos in Sydney with Simon O’Brien that were a lot of fun. In February and after a bunch of years living in Brisbane, I recently moved down to Gippsland in country Victoria for a bit of a change. Being only a couple hours from Melbourne I’ve been making the treks in to ride on weekends and trying to spend as much time as possible as I can riding before winter gets here.
I have also been doing a bunch of roadtrips to Adelaide and catching up with the local crew there. If you’re ever in Adelaide you gotta stop by my good mate Matt Hodgeson’s shop, Little Black Bike in the city. He stocks a full range of Colony gear and has been in the BMX game a very long time so knows his stuff. Don’t forget to hit me up on Instagram @shanebadman
Just got word that our main man Ryan Guettler went down & is currently in hospital with a ruptured spleen & lacerated kidney.
Rest up mate & keep positive. Our thoughts are with you. Give Ryan some love via his Instagram @ryanguettler
Yo yo !!

My life is about to start another chapter which may result in less riding so the other day I invited Stu Munro down to my place to do some filming for an ESPN edit. I’m real happy with what we filmed in the three days so I’m looking forward to the edit.
Bobbie shot through an update of the latest with him over in Missouri…
Hello world. I’ve gotten pretty into road cycling over the last couple of months. Averaging around a 100 miles a week, or about 160 km depending on where you’re reading this from. Nothing too crazy.. Spring is here, my local park opened up for the season and I’ve also been working on kind of a secret ramp set up in the back of the shop that I work at. For the most part I am building everything out of wood from old skateparks, construction sites, houses.. pretty much anything I can get my hands on. Trying to save a bit of money! Ha ha. Slowly coming along though. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to!
Zac just shot through an update from the recent jams that went down on the long weekend up in Canberra…
“Act jam went down on the weekend. So good to have something like this happen in Australia let alone my home town. The jams set up so you ride a different skatepark over 3 days, Weston, Belco and Tuggers. so much crazy shit went down. There was a fair turnout over the long weekend, not that many outta towners really which was a let down. Peta was there which was awesome, good to have a beverage with her. Josh Epplestun took out the under 16 champion, he was shredding all weekend. Will Gunn took out the ACT jam champion, he absolutely killed it at every park with local lines and going massive everywhere. Thanks to the guys at Backbone for putting it all together, so stoked act jams back on again, can’t wait till next year.”
This was filmed over the past 6 months or so, basically whenever I could get to Canberra Zac and I would hook up and film. I really do enjoy riding and filming with Zac, he always has new crazy setups lined up to film at and most of the time it works out. We both worked hard to get this exactly how we wanted it so I hope you guys enjoy it and be on the look out for more Zac in the coming months.
