Victor Salazar

We have been flowing Victor some parts for a little while now through Epic Bmx and he was good enough to send over some real nice shots that Bryan Decker took. Those trails look amazing…

Ohio Dreams

Last week I was lucky enough to go to Ohio Dreams camp and enjoy 4 days out there. The reason I went out was for the 3rd stop of the Recon tour, I’m a huge supporter of Recon because it’s one of the only good organized AM comps going on around America. These top AM are amazing and the future of bmx so I want to keep my eyes on things and help them when I can. I did two Guettler boot camps to help riders with runs and tricks and just have a good time, plus I announced the event on Saturday. While I was at the comp it was my Birthday so I rode the race track and trails all day and was one of the best days this year. If you want to check out the video of the event hit this link

Thanks guys, check out more of what I’m up to via ryanguettler.com

Out in the cold

I spent the day hanging out with Polly and Liam earlier this week as Liam was over from New Zealand on a riding holiday. We hit up a few parks and spots in freezing conditions but the rain stayed away so all in all it was a good day…

Alex Hiam update

Hey Guys !!

The last week has flown by. Unfortunately I lost my licence, and have worked close to 40 hours this week at the Cafe. The bright side of the 10km ride to work is In 6 degrees early in the morning it really warms you up like nothing else. I am saving all my work money towards a huge next year to goto all the contests like Fise in france, Nass in england etc, It’s going to be bananas !!

It’s awesome to be back home riding close to everyday again. I have riden a bunch this week in-between work and feeling amazing on my bike. There’s a few videos over on my instagram @alexhiam

Fuzzy Hall riding a Colony !!

When Keith Treanor told me that Fuzzy Hall wanted to ride a Colony a few weeks back I was pretty stoked to say the least. We recently fired up a package with a The Living Frame & a Dagger Fork with some other goodies for Fuzzy through the great guys at 50/50 BMX. It’s pretty awesome to have a such a BMX legend riding a Colony. Thanks to Fuzzy himself, 50/50 BMX & Keith for making it all happen. Stoked !!

Brandon KEA trip

Hey guys, I just wrapped up the Killemall trip all around Alberta and northern B.C. Some of the spots and scenery we hit were mind blowing! 10 days on the road flew by and we managed a nice balance between riding/driving/chilling. Every time awesome trips like these happen it really reminds you how rad the BMX community is. New friends and memories. That’s what this shit’s all about!

Nathan Sykes and Locals Only.

DIY is something I am passionate about so when I see Nathan doing good things with Locals Only and then find out how much of it he is doing himself it only gets you more stoked on the brand. Dylan Pfohl put together this insight video into Locals Only which is a real good watch for all…

Vert session

Our main man running the show for us in the states Keith Treanor, has been killing it in the office & on the bike of late. Somehow he finds time to get in plenty of sessions on a regular basis, including this backyard vert one with some legends. Here are a few words from the man himself…

Here’s a couple pics of Nathan Sykes riding Xavier Mendez’s vert ramp today shot by Randy Lawrence, the kid has some vert skills. Also attached is a sweet group pic mixing old & new school dudes like Brian Blyther, Nathan, Xavier Mendez, Andy Shohara, Randy Lawrence, Ben Snowden, Austin Coleman, Paul Nolan & Robert Castillo. Nathan also snapped a pic of my old ass! – Keith

Vans Demo

A few words from Ryan Guettler for you all…

Today was really cool I was invited to go into Vans Warehouse and do some demos for the Kids who parents work at Vans. I really enjoy doing theses because I know how hard the guys and girls at Vans work, I bet their kids go home today thinking there Mum or Dad have the best job in the world.

I got to ride the demo on the Vans ramp in the back with Dak Roach and Caio De Oliveira Sousa who is staying at my house, Amazing kid from Brazil. Demos went amazing, every kid loves backflips and being bunny hopped over.

Every kid got some Vans shirts, pizza, ice cream, some hi fives and even a hand full of Colony stickers each…Good times.

On side note… Happy birthday to Ryan today who turns 31 years young today !! Hope you have a good one mate !!
