Bendigo Jam

Some of the crew road tripped it up to Bendigo yesterday for the jam we helped put on with Connections BMX. The turnout was pretty overwhelming which in turn created some pretty awesome riding. Here’s a few photos from the day…





Chris Courtenay update

Hey Guys,

Been a crazy last few months which some of you might already know from the online posts! Anyways I took on a new venture and opened up a Bike Shop/park ‘The Village’ which has been crazy time consuming! But it doesn’t stop there this is just the motivation I’ve needed to do bigger and better things!

Can not wait to start on a new project for your eyes soon and will get the park in there too. For the mean time go check out what I’ve been working on @thevillagebmx and I’ll keep everyone updated on @chriscourtenay! Here’s a few photos to go with my adventures and if your ever around the Brisbane area be sure so come whatup!!!! Chris.




Welcome to the team: Anthony Napolitan

Today we are stoked to welcome Anthony to the family. He recently set-up a Tradition frame off the back of his Bikes over Baghdad trip and it’s looking fresh! Anthony is about to start on a project with Nathan Sykes so be on the lookout for some fresh footage really soon.


Tom Stretton update

Hey guys, It’s been a while but to be honest not much has changed. I’ve been to see my private orthopedic surgeon three times now and she has given me some good and not so good news.

Basically the main issue with my knee is there is a badly healed piece of bone on my tibia that is connected to the torn ACL still. Good news is if I can build up enough muscle and and the pain goes away then it’s likely I won’t even need surgery. However if the pain stays and it doesn’t get better by the new year then I will be going in the get the piece of bone ground off and a full knee reconstruction. See how we go.

For now I’m see a sports physician and I’m looking forward to building muscle in the places I need it.

Hope everyone is good. Follow me on Instagram, seeing as I’m not riding I’ve been chucking up old fun clips from past edits. Good memories for sure! @tom_stretton


Until next time. Peace!

Mick Bayzand’s new project

Back in May Mick and I started working on a new video project with the idea of shooting an entire trails video part as Mick was heavily into riding trails for many years so we thought it would be a good change up. Ever since that idea came about we’ve been digging in the rain, hail, sun and everything else in-between. It’s definitely something that has escalated into more then just creating a spot to film a good chunk of the video at, it’s become part of us both and something that I don’t think either of us see changing anytime soon. Here are a few shots from recent sessions.

Shouotout to the OG locals and also Grosser for helping with the build.

Paddy Gross update

Hello everyone! Hope you’ll are doing good and having fun riding your bikes. The winter in this part of the USA is moving closer and luckily I have “the Lumberyard” Indoor bike park to ride. Next to work, my misses and our 3 cats, I am spending quite a fair amount of time on my bike and keep working on my to do list. This list is pretty much a mix of tricks from back in the 90’s and Ideas I’ve had in the 90’s and about 15 years later I now try to finish unfinished business. It’s fun to create new combos and tricks and it feels a bit funny knowing the guy next to me is working on flair bar to whip while I am trying to 540 nosepick on a subbox. I am doing my own thing here and don’t really have anyone riding frontbrakes but the people I ride with are having a good time watching how BMX looked like 20 years ago haha. Since Clint & Keith hooked me up with the “Prody” frame I also got back into riding flatland again which definitely helps me with my balance and it’s fun on top of it. The frame is amazing and just looking at my bike makes so excited to ride everytime! I feel honored and lucky to ride one of those and this is the bike now that fulfills all my wants and needs. Well this is it for now and I’ll stop by again. I am not too much of a social media person but I still want to thank you for all the “likes” and kind words for what I am doing. I really appreciate it! All the best and have fun riding your bike!

Thanks to Eddie Braks for the photos.



Brandon Van Dulken video

Brandon Van Dulken is a man with skills on a bike that some of us only dream of. He can ride anything put in front of him and chances are he will be going full speed at it. Check his latest video below and his signature Roaster bars right here. Thanks to Corey Walsh for getting us the extra footage.

Alex Hiam video

Whilst Alex was in the USA recently he spent some time with his good friend Boyd Hilder and filmer Dave Pendleton in San Fransisco and came back with a pretty amazing video filled with some great diverse riding from both of the guys. Make sure you check this out…
