Back at the start of the year Chris Bracamonte flew over to Australia and spent 6 weeks with me whilst we hit the SOC tour and then stayed back in Melbourne for a month. In that month not only did Bracamonte help film some great videos with the team guys but he also pieced together enough clips of himself for the edit you see before you…

We had a bunch of un used clips and random footage from the SOC trip so we decided to put it all together for your viewing pleasure.

Hey guys, just a quick update.
So finally after all the nonsense my knee surgery is booked in for the 5th of April.
I will be getting my tibia shave off at the top and a full knee reconstruction. It may sound silly but I’m looking forward to it getting done more than anything in the world right now haha.
This photo down the bottom was almost a year ago in ACT and it’s only just being dealt with properly.
Also I should be at act jam this year with the boys to have a good time and cheer everyone on. Come say hello!
Much love to everyone and a special thanks to Clint and Colony BMX for sticking by me for so long. This is truly a family and I couldn’t have found a better one.
Tim is someone that not only kills it on a bike but he is also doing his part to help build the scene around his area of Brisbane which is something I respect very much. So when the opportunity came up to be able to help Tim out with some parts we jumped at it. Tim is a productive dude so expect some great stuff from him soon. For now you can check out his new rig below along with his recent video.
It’s been a really good month with lots of riding. With the little rain that we have been getting in Southern California it’s been really nice working on the trails getting them riding in real good. Been riding FOD and Heath Pinter’ yard a bunch. Really fun sessions.
Last week Matt Cordova, Larry Edgar and myself filmed with Ride 100 Percent. Was really fun having there videographer Nico out for a few days. We spent a solid day at FOD filming riding and motorcycles. Stoked to see what he comes up with. And the second day was spent out at Pinter’s yard. I always enjoying any chance to film with Matt and Larry. Always a good time joking around and seeing who can land the flattest!
Excited for this month to be doing some Colony trips in the States. Chris B has some stuff lined up that’s going to be a blast. Let the good times roll!
The good guys at Strictly BMX are throwing a jam down at Prahran park in Melbourne in a couple weeks. Make sure you head down for a good time and you might even score some Colony goodies…
Hey guys little update on what I’ve been up to lately, working and riding a lot with a tonne of early morning sessions. It’s always fun riding a park all to yourself and flowing around!
Planing on going on a couple trips this month and looking forward to riding some new stuff. Follow my Insta: @jourdanbarba and Snapchat: jourdanbmx to see what I’m getting into!
Here’s extra clip filmed by Carlos Garcia from the Rivtape mix we are working on enjoy!
Been a rad start to the year. Had such a blast on the Summer of Colony road trip, was so stoked to everyone who came out and shredded! Not to mention the stop at The Village was unreal, such a solid crew turned up!
Recently just had a few coaching clinic’s in the park with long time homie Ryan Guettler who was quickly over from the states. Was an all round good day getting to help out the younger generation who just passionately love to ride their bikes! It brings you back to where it all started and the love of riding that keeps you wanting more.
But to put a downer on the fresh year I just popped my shoulder out last Friday so I’ve been resting that up so I can get back on the bike ASAP. I’ts the worst when your around it 24/7 and can’t ride. So it looks like I’ll be getting some physio sessions in to strengthen it up and then back on it!
P.S Go check out my insta @chriscourtenay I’ve got a drone now and i’ts the best thing ever hah.
Take care homies!
