Although the weather haltered the semi finals yesterday, Alex, Dean and Jayden all got their runs in before the rain and they all did some clean riding. We don’t have results yet due to the rest of the semi’s being run on Sunday but make sure you get down to Manly on Sunday for a good time or if you can’t make it out then you can watch the live stream here.
More quality clips from some of the team’s Instagram accounts…
Besides the weather it’s been a great week so far. Here are a couple images of Alex and Jayden.
A few weeks back I spent a week in Brisbane filming with some of the guys. Whilst doing so I shot this behind the scenes video which I think gives you a pretty good insight into the time spent hanging out with the crew. Most of the time spent was with Josh Dove, Chris Courtney and Jayden Fuller but Tom. Clint and Alex all get a show in there as well.
Also check out the Jayden Fuller video that we dropped last week which we finished filming on this Brisbane trip.
We’ve been setting up some rider playlists so it’s easy for you guys to enjoy a bunch of videos from your favourite riders. Here is the Alex Hiam’s playlist.
Alex Hiam & Jayden Fuller spent 4 days in Melbourne recently and we filmed this little behind the scenes video during that time. Keeping the main footage for future video projects. Hope you guys enjoy the look into the life on the road.
Someone made this compilation of a tonne of great Alex clips from the past few years. It’s pretty random to see someone re-using your clips but I am into it none the less…
Hey guys, I have been working on my ankle a lot . I am doing my own physio to save money and I think I know how to treat it pretty good aswell.. I’m learning a lot about the body and healing myself. It’s pretty interesting. I am Constantly progressing, Healing and feeling more and more stronger everyday, With my ankle and my whole body . .. I am able to do pretty much any Physical activities with out to much pain or hassle in my ankle now.. Which is very relieving and exciting. I have been climbing mountain for physio etc.
This ankle has been by far the hardest injury to recover from. I Keep thinking It’s getting better then I find another thing I have to heal . It’s just my balance i am having a hard time with at the moment. . That’s delaying the last healing process.. I am able to ride, do all my usual tricks, But not comfortably. and don’t feel like it’s time yet. I have subconsciously been putting all my weight on my left leg, ( My good foot ) During pretty much every activity i do, Including riding…. so This is delaying my Right ankle ( the one i Broke ) From fully healing and building that last bit of muscle I need to be able to have a lil fall and get back up from it… I have just figured this out this week. So it’s exciting I can start working towards balancing my weight out on both feet, and should be back to 100% soon. All the physio and exercise I have been doing my whole body and mind is ready and just waiting to push the limits again. Yoga has been a huge help to balance myself out. I am feeling really confident and refreshed on my bike so I’m super excited and have fallen more involve with riding once again!
It’s been a long road but I think it’s finally coming to a end. And I am so grateful for this Obstacle, and I have learnt a whole lot that is going to help me in the future to be on my bike for as long as possible.
Below is a day edit from the England trip hitting up the Corby park.
Yo Guys !
During A road trip to Sanfran with Chris Bracemonte, Trent McD, Wolfgang and Aaron I unfortunately Fractured my Ankle and have to be in a cast for 4 weeks. I didn’t roll it it was just a strange angle that got it .
I had to cut my USA trip short and return home early to heal up .. The Australian Health system rocks.. So lucky to be back and being looked after my The Public Health system and finally Healing up …. I am eating super super Healthy I have even Gone Vegetarian for the next 2 weeks to heal my bones quicker. The average Calorie intake is 2500 and I’m eating 6000 calories and day to speed things up. I have been researching a lot using this time to Build my Health up.
It was My 21st Birthday flying home, So I had a nice Lunch with all my USA friends then when I arrived in AUS I had another party to celebrate with all my friends back home.
I should be walking in Two weeks! So until then I’m just kicking back, spending some time doing all the sorts of arts I enjoy, Like drawing, painting, photography and filming Landscapes. I have some stuff in the works on my time of so expect some sort of Non BMX media up from me soon.
Thanks for all the Support on and off my bike. I am so motivated to ride again and can’t stop thinking about Riding my bike.
Today marks Alex‘s 21st birthday. I’ve known Alex for 8 or 9 years now and in that time watched him progress not only as a rider but also as a person. It’s been a great ride so far Alex and I look forward to many more years.
Below we have an edit we did with Alex when he was just 13 along with his most recent from earlier this year.
