Defero online

First online issue of Defero, this one features the recent Flem Banks Jam. Zac, Marnold, Mick, Clint and myself all have footage in this one. Such a great day!

Toormina comp…

Alex Hiam, Nick Richardson, Tom Stretton & myself all went down to Shane Conlon’s comp at his local on the weekend & it was a really fun time. Shane organised the event to raise awareness of the fact that Coffs Harbour needs it’s own ramp park, as it is well behind other regions in the area.

Alex ended up killing it & got 2nd place & $500 for his efforts while Shane ended up winning, showing he really is unbeatable on his home turf. A big shout out must go to Shane for all his efforts in organising the weekend.

We also rode a local full pipe which was a bit of fun & got up to plenty of party antics during the night. Good times in general.

The other new bike…

Here is my other new bike I made up recently. Something a little different for me with no pegs, gyro or front brakes. Just to mix things up a little. Should keep things fresh. Matt Black this time with Laser Green highlights.

My new bikes…

I recently put together two new bikes & this is one of them. I am really stoked on how this one turned out. Silver Storm frame, forks, bars & cranks with Dark Blue parts all round. I am looking forward to riding this baby. I will post photos of the my other bike in the next day or two, stay tuned.

World travellers…

Thought I would let you all know of some of the travel plans the team have going on now or very soon…

Tim Wood was in Singapore last weekend for some demos at a brand new concrete park there, it was amazing park according to Tim. He took a bit of a spill on the vert bowl there but is OK.

Nick Richardson is off to the USA for 2 months to stay at Ryan’s house in Greenville. Expect some good things to come from Nick while over there. Nick also recently put together a nice new 2010 Gnarkill Frame.

Zac Miner & Liam Fahy-Hampton are off to China at the end of the month for an invitational comp over there in Beijing. Should be interesting.

Shane Badman is due back to Australia soon after a few years in Europe.

Mick Bayzand is also coming home in October after 18 months in Canada. It will be good to have him back in Australia.

I am off to the US in a couple weeks for Interbike. So looking forward to the Nora Cup party once again, just not the day after.

What a weekend…

These few pics here pretty much sum up the weekend just gone up here. Zac killed the Botanical Gardens rail in the city with this over ice. Then smashed his face on a messed up gap to second stage tooth hanger on another rail. Everyone got pretty loose at Spinal Disorder. Way too much alcohol was drank over the weekend. Oh, and a little riding went down too. Good times.

Carhartt store – Sydney

On my way back from Melbourne last week I dropped into Sydney for a few days & hit up the Carhartt store there. I love going there… so much good stuff & Andrew always hooks me up big time. Thanks again to the guys at Carhartt for the hook up.

A little news…

On Tuesday the 11th of August, my lovely girlfriend Niki & I tied the knot & are now married !! It was a very exclusive event with just immediate family present. A wonderful day was had by all & exactly what we wanted.

We will have a large party later on this year to celebrate. Words can’t describe our good it feels to be able to call Niki my wife.

Weekend trip away

On the weekend Alex Hiam, Mark Mathews-Frederick & myself travelled up north to Maryborough on a little roadtrip.

First we dropped into Gympie to stretch our legs & rode the park they have there. Not much to ride but was still a fun time. After there we headed to Woodgate as I heard about a concrete mini ramp there. This thing is amazing. So smooth & really good transitions. There were even a bunch of kangaroos hanging out in the field by the ramp. So Aussie.

That night we stayed in Maryborough with all the crew from Brisbane & the Gold Coast that were up for the trails jam the next day. It was a fun night of talking smack & having a few drinks.

The next day was all about the trails. These things are so much fun & a huge shout must go to the locals up there for their amazing efforts on these over the years. I didn’t get any pics of the trails but I am sure some will pop up somewhere soon.

On the way home we dropped in for a quick swim at a local river & I mean a really quick swim. The water was damn freezing !! After our swim we dropped into Nambour to ride the park there. Good times. Nambour is actually has the very first ramp I ever rode way back in 1988.

Getting away from the usual is always a good time & if you’re bored of your local, go get some mates, get in the car & go on a little road trip. You wont regret it.

Dirty Drains Jam

Today Richo, Alex, Cooper Brownlee & myself went to the Dirty Drains Jam in Brisbane. It was a really good turn out & a good vibe as well. I got way too much sun but still had fun none the less. Here is a pic of Richo in the long jump comp that went down. It was a great day & a everyone had a good time. It was good to see everyone having a good time in one place.

Blast from the past…

Check this out from 1991, top left is myself while top right is Ryan Guettler.

This was at the FlatAmp Comp Series held at Nunawading & featured in the August/September issue of BMX National. I ended up winning 16 years flatland & Masters flatland while getting 3rd in 16 years ramp while Ryan won the 14 & under ramp class at a mere age of 8 years old.

Thanks to Matt Holmes from 2020 BMX magazine for the bringing back the cool memories that seem so long ago.

Cali trip video

After interbike this year Ryan Guettler, Steve Woodward & myself did a little riding around Southern California for a few days. It was a good relaxed time riding our bikes & having fun. Here is a little video I made up from what footage we captured, nothing crazy but good times for sure. If you like you can click here for the higher quality quicktime file or watch it below. Enjoy.

Wanna learn nosepicks?

I did this how-to for Ride BMX on Saturday while out at Woodward West.

Yo yo !!

Woodward West

Ryan had to leave the trip early for an LG comp elsewhere in the US. So Josh Boatright & I arrived at Woodward West today & I felt like a little kid again. This place is a ramp mecca beyond what I could ever have imagined. It’s totally ridiculous. Check some of the pics below for proof.

Tomorrow, weather permitting, we will go and check out Nasty’s trail jam nearby. Should be good to see.

In San Diego now…

Myself, Guettler & Ryan’s friend Josh Boatright, arrived into San Diego last night & meet up with Steve Woodward & his mates. We had a bit of a night out on the town & witnessed the Woodward show in full effect. The man is an animal on & off the bike, it was a fun night. Today we are gonna go ride the Mission Valley park we have all seen so much of in videos & magazines. Should be a blast.

Old school pic…

I was looking through some old photos & came across this beauty of a pic. It’s features from left to right, Michael Canfield (one of the guys that introduced me to riding back in 1988), myself, Ryan Guettler (at around 8 years old) & Tim Wood. We had our own show team called, Wheels Entertainment & we did shows in & around Brisbane. This pic would have been taken around 1992. Pretty funny stuff.

Weekend in Melbourne

I just got back from my weekend in Melbourne & I am so sore. Had a great time riding & haven’t ridden that much in a while. First we hit up the opening of Rampfest & all I can say is that place is amazing.

The next day we hit up a the new Knox park as well as a local school & the old Knox park, good times. Myself, John B, Pete Radivo, Luke Barling, Josh Mete met up with the Focalpoint crew & good times were had by all.

We hit up Flemington banks on Sunday which is always a treat. That new little ghetto quarter there is amazing. Exactly my kind of stuff to ride.

A big shout out goes to John B & the Radivo family for looking after me. Thanks go to John B & Cooper Brownlee for the pics. I am already looking forward to coming down again soon.
