Comp/Jam News Archives - Colony BMX
Pizzey Jam going down in a couple weeks which will no doubt be a good time!
Melbourne heads, next month the Banks Jam is back!
Team riders Alex Hiam, Josh Dove, Jayden Fuller, Dean Anderson and Clint Millar, headed to Slam Factory Indoor Skatepark on the Central Coast in January to bring some of the NSW scene together for a good old fashioned jam. While the various crews who made the trip to Slam had unique riding styles — from tech-wizards in the bowl to trail-lords on the box jump and street-dogs on the flatrail — everyone had one thing in common; a massive smile on their faces as they shared a fun night riding bikes, catching up with old friends and making some new ones.
Up-and-coming videographer Ben Norris from Sydney’s Northern Beaches came up to document the good times and this edit is the result.
BMX is welcome at all times at Slam Factory, so if you wanna ride there with your mates or pick up some Colony BMX products, check out Slam Factory for opening hours.
Next Saturday (Feb 9th) the Morayfield Jam is kicking off! Come down from around 4pm for some good times with the crew!
This Saturday down in Melbourne some of the crew will be sessioning the Box Hill park. Make sure you guys come out.
Whilst we’re in Newcastle next weekend we will be hitting up Parrey Park for a session on the Sunday evening, make sure you come out for a roll.
We’re planning to do a bunch of jams around the country all through 2019 & this one here, at Woodridge on the weekend, was the first to kick things off for the year.
Thanks to all that came out & had a great time. The vibe was awesome all day with everyone just riding & having fun. So many faces from all over from all ages & riding levels.
It was good to see parents come & watch all day as well. So good to see everyone smiling all day & supporting each other.
So much awesome stuff went down, so many different styles of riding. The Bunny hop comp was a treat to watch even after the two sticks we had broke. Things kept going on with the use of a bush style stick. In the end it was Alex Hiam we cleared the highest at 43 inches.
If your down south, we have another 3 set for later this month plus one at Beenleigh as well. Check the flyer below for all dates & locations.
Have fun, ride bikes is what it’s all about.
Next Saturday make sure you get down to the Slam Factory indoor park for a session and good times. A bunch of the team will be there for a roll.
Tomorrow come down to Woodridge park in Brisbane for some good times!
We’ve lined up some jams along the east coast over the coming weeks, come down for a shred with everyone.

What a crazy day at the Vans BMX Pro Cup. Both Luke Parker and Jake Wallwork ride well in Semi’s but didn’t quite make finals however Alex Hiam and Chris James really put on a show and qualified 2nd and 3rd for the finals.

Our Brazilian rider Paulo Saçaki is already in Santiago, Chile, where he will compete in the Vans BMX Pro Cup – Regional Qualifier, from March 23 to 25.
The event will go through Australia, USA, Mexico and Spain.
The top three podium winners will advance to the Vans BMX Pro Cup Pro Tour in the USA.
“It will be an honor to be able to represent my country once again. There will be more than fifteen Brazilian riders in attendance and this will show how Brazil has much BMX talent on the rise.
I am looking forward to the event, I have been riding the new bowl of my city, which has been very fun of late.
I am hoping to get a top three spot and go on the whole tour.” – Paulo Sacaki.
Yo yo !!
We are yet again supporting the jam at Riverslide park in Melbourne at the Moomba Festival. Get down there for some fun and have a chance to win some prizes or even some cash.
We are supporting the Capital Lou jam this year, if you’re anywhere near St Louis make sure you get out to it.
The plans for the weekend are to meet up at Shady Jack’s Saloon (1432 N Broadway, St. Louis, MO) at 10a.m on Saturday, April 7th for FREE PARKING, as well as the kick-off announcements.
We will leave from there on bikes at 11a.m. to kick the Jam off. All contests will be running from 11a.m. to around 7p.m., when we’ll make our way back to Shady Jack’s to announce the winners and hand out prizes.
We will be hosting a variety of contests through out the day, including a BATTLE OF THE CREWS Instagram contest. Bring a crew, film the most fire Instagram video with them during the Jam, and win a cash prize at the end of the night.
We will also have a CUSTOM BMX Bike that we will be raffling off at the Jam to fund a FREE BBQ Cook-out the next day at a skatepark for all the riders traveling to town for the weekend.
After the Jam (8p.m.), everyone 18 and older will be invited to come inside Shady Jack’s Saloon for the After-Party / my 21st Birthday Party.
There will be full bar access (21+) & good food being served until 1a.m.
This won’t be one to miss! I hope to see you all there.

This Saturday in Brisbane, make sure you get down to the CLVLND jam as they are destroying the place soon so the local crew are putting on one last heavy session
We teamed up with LUX BMX to put on the first annual Gnarcherfield Jam. The plan was pretty simple, we chose a park that was pretty basic but in a good location to be able to build some DIY setups which ended up working real well. We gave away a bunch of cash and everyone had a great time. We’re already hyped for the next one!
We’ve teamed up with LUX to put on something special. $1,000 prize pool at the Archerfield Park in Brisbane. There will be a tonne of DIY setups on the day so make sure you save the date and make the trip out.
The park is located at Achievement Crescent, Acacia Ridge QLD.
Baco A Go-Go is on again on the 30th September. We’ve got behind the event once again & a few of the team guys are headed there too. Expect to see Bobbie Altiser & Paddy Gross repping front brakes for us. This is the last one that will be held at that park so make sure you get along for the fun times.
Yo yo !!
