Back in September Victor Salazar, Alex Hiam, Chris Bracamonte, Nathan Sykes, Clint Millar and Keith Treanor took a week trip up to Oregon, met up with Paddy Gross and thanks to Bracamonte we have a really good 9 minute video for you guys. Chris nailed it on this, showcasing the good vibes that great times that went down on the road. Wish I was there. Thanks to all the locals who welcomed the crew everywhere they went.
Be sure to check out latest issue (Jan/Feb) of Ride BMX which as a great feature article from the trip along with Nathan scoring the cover of the same issue.
If you’re in Australia then hit up your local shop or mail-order for the new HFRB snapback we just got in. It features a printed under brim, Large 3D embroidered logo with small rear detail.
Last week I flew to Melbourne for two Events going down in the same week that I wanted to be apart of. So I figured why not , I love Melbourne it’s such a amazing city , any reason to be there is good ! I was staying at Cooper Brownlees house , the Filmer for Colony BMX. We ended up filming a lot with our spare time and had a really productive week. I will have a new clip from my week in Melbourne dropping sometime in the next 2 weeks.
At the start of the week was Bendigo Bmx Jam that was for a Connections BMX shop . It was a awesome turn out and good to meet all the homies and ride with everyone. Then at the end of my stay there was another BMX jam that was a Street ride through the city. good to see so many Riders apart of it. I attached some photos from my week in Melbourne.
On the January 7th of Jan I go on a big roadtrip with some of the team for a week. It’s a shop Tour from Brisbane to Sydney to Canberra stopping at all main skateparks that Colony will be having big Jams at. And filming and shooting pics along the way and promoting my Signature frame , bars, forks & seat.
Mid Jan when I arrive home and My homie Dave from America is coming to stay at my house to film a new edit from Jan – Febuary. I filmed a lot with him when I was in USA this year and stoked to have him coming out and to be able to show him our amazing country. Gonna be good times. We have planned our own little road trip from Feb 1 – 12th. we are taking a week to drive down to SYD , Stopping at all the beaches etc. then spending 4 days in Sydney… Then finishing it off at a concert we all booked tickets for. I will be taking my little car and we will be camping the whole way there, Filming our own Web video.
Then March I’m off to France to compete in Fise World coatest.
Alex’s most recent video…
Ahhhh summer – it’s here! I’m writing my first update from Adelaide, where I’m originally from but last lived here about 10 years or so ago before I went to Europe, Brisbane and a bunch of other places.
So the past few months have been beyond hectic with selling a house in Victoria, emptying and sorting out life, then packing everything into a truck and driving it over to Adelaide to start a new life. In between all this I’m stoked that I’ve been able to keen a fair bit of riding going which has been awesome.
I had a few really good demos that I did just before coming to Adelaide. The first one was with Nikon Australia where I worked with professional sports and action photographer, Mark Watson (who is a ninja when it comes to getting dope shots!). Mark was doing workshops over 3 days at the Nikon Digital Show that they were running at the Melbourne Convention Centre and what better way to instruct photographers than having a live test subject to photograph – me! So it was pretty awesome that flatland got centre stage and BMX got taken to a much different audience. After the workshops, we headed out into Melbourne and managed to catch some really good photos.
After the Nikon demos I had a week of riding at home before I flew out to Tasmania where I did the Derby River Derby festival. I had done this demo a few years back and it was a really good, chilled out vibe and more importantly a good crowd and there is also an awesome riding spot to have there. A lot of demos you do, you sometimes get pretty ordinary places to ride so it was really nice to have somewhere legit.
Massive thanks and shoutout to Mark Watson and Nikon for the workshops and also Matty Wootton and the rest of the Derby River Derby guys for inviting me out – cheers!
Since being back in Adelaide I’ve been trying to get myself sorted with my old riding spots. Once life settles back into a normal routine I have some really big things that I’d like to get onto for 2016 so watch this space!

Hey guys, been a real busy month so far. Working a tonne and also riding a fair share, my birthday just passed on the 10th and I’m now officially 26 haha time flys! My wife Katherine threw me a surprise b’day party with a electronic bull and a jumper felt like a kid again! I just started working on a new video project with Chris Bracamonte last weekend and it will be fun working with Chris he is a chill laid back dude that kills it on a bike and filming! Follow me on IG @jourdanbarba and you can keep up with my daily adventures!
Hey guys, I’m currently recovering from a knee reconstruction so I haven’t been riding for a few weeks now, and won’t be able to for a few months more, but luckily my time off the bike is short compared to other types of surgery as I had a synthetic ligament put in my knee called a LARS ligament. While I’ve been off I have mainly been working on my car, hanging out with friends and watching a lot of web edits, I can’t wait to be back on the bike and I’m already planning to travel with it once I’m riding again.
And check out more from Jack with is most recent video…
This is by no means a full video part from Ricky but we had these clips sitting here not getting used and they were way too incredible not to put out so consider this a teaser for his full video that we will be putting out in early 2016.
Tony’s Bike Shop in Connecticut stock a good range of our products & with their help, we’ve been helping out Aaron Simone for a little while now. He just put of this edit full of some awesome riding. It really shows his diversity which is something we personally like to see. Keep it coming Aaron.
Thanks Mike at Tony’s and Aaron for all the Colony support, check out the shop when you’re in the area and ask to Mike to play a quick bass solo – Keith Treanor

Very hyped to see Nathan score the cover of the latest issue of RIDE BMX. The photo comes from the trip some of the guys took to Oregon a few months ago. The new issue features an article from the trip and we will have a video dropping from it in 2 weeks so be on the lookout for that. For now, enjoy this…
