Sydney to Bathurst & beyond…

It’s been a pretty good few days of driving around hitting up various parks between Sydney & Bathurst. We’ve hit up Macquarie Fields, Penrith, Lawson, Lithgow, Millthorpe & Manildra. It’s been really good so far with great weather & some good times along the way.

We rode the park in Manildra today & it was a blast. Check it out below. More from the road soon as we are at Newtons Nation now for the next few days.

Alex and Clint Ten Clips

Alex and Clint teamed up to film a split ten clips at Woodridge park, enjoy.

An oldie but a goodie…

The Selftitled DVD was released in 2006 & features O.G. Colony team riders, Ryan Guettler, Nick Richardson, Kenny Raggett, Haimona Ngata, Pete Radivo & myself along with a large crew of riders.

It took us 3 years to film for this & it took me 9 months of editing. Crazy thing is after 9 months of editing, my hard drive crashed & we nearly lost the whole damn thing. After an epic 12 hour straight drive from Brisbane to Sydney, had Matt Holmes save the day with his Mac savvy knowledge. Thanks Matt !!

This one for me, is full some amazing memories & a chapter in my life that I will never forget. Good times for sure.

Vans / Colony Adelaide trip video

Back in early December of last year, we spent five days in Adelaide, South Australia riding a bunch of spots along with a few parks with the locals and this is the end result.

Filmed by: Clint Millar, Cooper Brownlee, Ryan Guettler, Mick Bayzand, Tom Stretton and Zac Miner.

Edited by Cooper Brownlee.

2011 almost behind us all…

I had a good chilled ride with some long time mates at Fairfield park yesterday. What a good way to end out the year & what a mammoth year 2011 has been as well. Seems to have gone so fast with so much stuff happening along the way.

Thanks to everyone that has supported us over the past year, we do appreciate it. Looking forward to a great 2012 ahead & more good times on our bikes that we all love. Happy new year everyone !!

Blast from the past

Glennie our warehouse manager, uploaded this a while back now but it’s a collection of footage from back in 1996 / 1997 from the comps held at Fairfield in Sydney. Look out for clips from myself, Simon O’Brien & Glennie himself.

These comps were some of my best memories of BMX for me no doubt. Bloody good times for sure.

Here is another from back in 2000 from a comp down at The Shed in Melbourne as well. Commentating is Marc Urlich from Strictly BMX fame.

We had a pretty good day riding around yesterday. Valvo, Peta, Alex & myself rode a few of the various parks here in Brisbane & had a great time while doing so. Check out a few random pics from the day below, good times.

It’s a rental…

On our way back home from a 2 week trip here in the USA & Canada. Just spent 3 days up in Vancouver with Dave Osato & his wife Johanna, taking in the sites of Vancouver. It was a really nice weekend for sure. They took us around & showed us some cool stuff, we ate good food & had a few drinks. We even caught up with Jay Miron as well. He is doing well it seems with his absence from BMX.

It was also good to catch up with Blaise & Tammy from Kill Em All Distribution as well.

We just spent the day in LA now & got a hire car to cruise around in. Had to go something American & fun. So enter the Dodge Challenger R/T with it’s 5.7L V8 Hemi. Fun times !!

Today was a good day…

Spent the day exploring New York City today again. We visited the 9/11 site which was rather emotional to be there. Just thinking of all those that lost their lives & what it would have been like to be there when it happened.

After that we headed to check out Wall Street & had some breakfast there. We then took a NYC Water Taxi on the Hudson River to check out the sights including the Statue of Liberty. After that we walked & checked out the Brooklyn Banks although they are closed off at the moment with construction.

After this we caught the subway back uptown to check out the Empire State Building. Such a great view of the city from up there. All in all, a great day.

Yo yo !!

The big apple…

Spent the day exploring NYC today & have much more planned for tomorrow yet. Snapped a couple quick pics on the go. We also saw a bunch of skaters filming in Times Square. The police nearby didn’t seemed fazed at all either which was cool to see.

Yo yo !!

From OKC to NYC…

We spent the day in OKC yesterday & the guys at Sidewall Distribution looked after us really well, thanks guys. I checked out Sidewall HQ & after that we had some lunch & went for a quick site seeing tour around the city. One thing Mark Owen showed me was the famous rail Mat Hoffman did back in the day. We then headed to the airport to catch our next plane.

We arrived in NYC late last night. As we flew in we had a great over view of the entire city. I have never seen a city like this before. So crazy big. We headed straight for our hotel & walked around a little & it’s pretty surreal to be here. Today we will be going exploring… should be great.

Yo yo !!

In OKC… finally

Travelling can really suck sometimes. After Vegas we planned to go to Oklahoma City to visit the guys at Sidewall Distribution & have a nice relaxing Sunday there.

Well those plans got thrown out the window when our flight was delayed by 6 hours out of Vegas. It also didn’t help that we arrived 4 hours earlier for our flight. So after 10 hours sitting in the Vegas airport, we finally got on our way but then missed our connecting flight in Dallas. We were given a hotel room but only had 3 hours to try to get some sleep before we had to make the connecting flight. Finally after 24 hours of travelling, we arrived at our hotel in OKC, very much ready for some sleep. Our plans for Sunday blown out but least we finally arrived.

We will go visit Sidewall tomorrow & see where all the magic happens.

The view over Vegas at 11pm.

VW Day Out…

This has pretty much nothing to do with BMX but thought it may be of interest of some out there. For those that know me, know that I am a VW fan. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday here, so I went down to a VW Show N Shine in my beloved ’62 Type 3 Squareback. It was a perfect day to chill out & go for a cruise. I captured a few images from the day & here they are below.

Clint Millar – Ten Clips

When I was up in Brisbane a little while back I went down to Helensvale park with Clint and filmed his first 10 clips edit, stoked on how it came out. He has only pulled the last trick once before in his life I believe, check it out.


Weekend in Newcastle…

Zac Miner, Alex Hiam, Tom Stretton, Brock Olive & myself headed down to Newcastle on the weekend to ride & to attend a DVD premiere hosted by the guys at Drift Bikes. A huge thanks to everyone at Drift. On the way down we also hit up the new park in Nimbin which was a blast. Get yourself there sometime soon if you wanna ride a great snake run & park.

A huge thanks to Adam Ingles & all the Newcastle locals that showed us a great time. A special thanks also go to Matt & his boys for letting us ride his backyard ramps. Thanks for the Jack’s too, good times !!
