I spent most of the ACT Jam weekend shooting photos but put the camera down for another camera every now and then to snag a few clips of the guys. Check the video below featuring Alex Hiam, Jayden Fuller, Josh Dove, Chris James, Polly, Chris Courtenay and Clint Millar.
Day 3 was just as fun as the previous 2 days at Act Jam. We hit up the Fadden park which ended up being quite a long and fun session before we headed over to the Belco jam which was as good as you would expect.
We got in a session at Belco before we headed to the trails jam today. Belco was productive and fun but the trails jam was next level. The sets were pretty wild and a tonne of riders were killing it. See you at Belco today.
Good first full day in Canberra with a session at Gungahlin then off to Weston Creek for a wild time as you would expect.
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 have a new section to the site, above in the Navigation bar you will see a FEATURES tab which will now host a bunch of original content shot with the guys. It could be a road trip article, bike check or an interview with one of the guys. Basically anything we think of. First up is a photo feature from the trip to Nude bowl a few of us took. Check it out here.
Nathan Sykes, Anthony Napolitan and Victor Salazar visited Sanctuary rest and ride prior to throwing a jam at Mosqueda bike park in Fresno CA. While at sanctuary they were able to visit Yosemite and ride an amazing skatepark in a neighboring mountain town.
The jam was an amazing, all the locals were in high spirits and killing it, on the way home the guys stopped in Visalia to get a few lines in
and heaps of locals turned out for the session, It was a real good session.
Filmed and edited by Chris Bracamonte.
Some of the crew are currently on the road over in California heading to Fresno for a few days to ride with the locals. Make sure you come out for the sessions and keep up to date via our Instagram,

We spent 9 days on the road around Brisbane then down the coast to Canberra hitting up a bunch of parks and anything else we could come up on. We hosted 10 jams in 9 days at local parks along the way and had a blast riding with everyone. Here’s the video from the trip and you can view a pretty large photo gallery over on the Focalpoint website.
Thanks to Chris Bracamonte for helping out with filming on this.
It’s been a great trip so far with everyday bringing new stories along with weather reaching the 40+ temps and then wild storms hitting us with no real warning, we’ve had it all. Here are a few random shots from along the way. Hope to see some crew out at Ulladulla today from 12 along with Batemans Bay around 6 for a roll..
We’ve been filming a bunch on this trip for a web video along with a bunch of Instagram videos, some of which are below. Follow us on Instagram for many more.
Tonight, head down to The Village for a session with the crew. Should be a fun evening…
This is going to be a lot of fun.
A bunch of the crew will be heading out on the road for a couple weeks between Queensland and Canberra with a bunch of stops along the way for sessions with the locals and anyone keen to trip it out.
We will be posting more info regarding times of the sessions but this will give you an idea. Be sure to come out and have a good time with all of us.
Back in September Victor Salazar, Alex Hiam, Chris Bracamonte, Nathan Sykes, Clint Millar and Keith Treanor took a week trip up to Oregon, met up with Paddy Gross and thanks to Bracamonte we have a really good 9 minute video for you guys. Chris nailed it on this, showcasing the good vibes that great times that went down on the road. Wish I was there. Thanks to all the locals who welcomed the crew everywhere they went.
Be sure to check out latest issue (Jan/Feb) of Ride BMX which as a great feature article from the trip along with Nathan scoring the cover of the same issue.
Hey guys! Wanted to shoot you over a update on what I’ve been up too.
A few weeks back I received a email from this company whistle sports, proposing if I would be a rider for a week long urban bmx video project. Finding out more details as our conversation continued, the bmx project will be 1 of many episodes premiered on this App called (Go90); Powered by Verizon wireless. After much detail about the project, the location for the film was revealed… A abandoned Hotel that was hosted for 1983 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. Better know as the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Raising some curiosity on where this county is on world map, Bosnia is located in the southeast of Europe on the Balkin peninsula. After agreeing to the deal, I come to find out two of my great friends were contacted also for this opportunity as well. Danny Josa and colony team mate Jackie Straiton!
Once arriving to Sarajevo airport, I was welcomed with the crisp winter weather with temperature as low of 25° and midday highs of 40° to 45° Fahrenheit. Once unpacking my bags in my hotel room, I met up with the boys Danny and Jackie.
We then all made our way to the abounded hotel location were we are meant to film. This photo below is 1 of the hotel’s that was hosted for the 1984 Winter Olympic games, here in Sarajevo, “Yugoslavia” — Less than a decade after the ogames, the Bosnian War tore Yugoslavia apart. Literally and figuratively… Lasting for four years between 1992 and 1996, the Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare.
With custom ramp coronation with Ramp Riders out of Copenhagen, Denmark we had ramps build in and around the abandoned hotel.Below are some photos from the location. Jackie whipping over a 2 story high building to building 15 foot gap. We also shot a few pics in the city of Sarajevo!
Thanks guys, keep you updated on the final video!
