Richo’s new bike…

I reported last week that Richo was due to go in for knee surgery last Wednesday. He went there all set to go but he was told due to a scratch on his other knee that he had to come back in 3 weeks when it healed up. So for now, Nick is still riding. I built him up a new bike today with the help of Mitch & Jimmy at Helensvale BMX, thanks guys.

Check it out below… Also, check back soon for a way you can bid to own Nick’s very own personal bike.

Jonny Devine video…

Check out this short video of our newest team rider in the UK, Jonny Devine.

Yo yo !!

Ryan checks in…

Got an email from Ryan about his weekend & weeks ahead…   

What’s up guys…

I went to Germany for the BMX Masters on Monday and got back last night, had a rad time. The first event was mini ramp on the Braun Spine ramp which is almost 7 foot tall (scary as crap) I did a lot of stuff on it that I was pumped on like double whips and no foot can flair. I placed 4th in mini but had some of the best runs I’ve ever done on a spine. Check out Freecaster.tv or bmxonline.com for videos
Next event was dirt and I’m glad to tell you guys I WON son, haha. I had a great time and the jumps were sick, big and fast. Everyone rode super good and top 3 were myself, Corey Bohan and 3rd was TJ Ellis. There are videos around of the dirt comp too.

Next for me is Cleveland Dew tour next week then I’m going to Cali for 2 weeks to film and shoot photos for Vans then LG box jump comp and X Games super park. Can’t wait…. Check the photos I stole from various websites…

Talk soon,

Ryan.

More from Shane in Egypt

Just recently I decided to take a day trip to the inland city of Luxor on the bank of the Nile, about 4 hours from where I currently live in Hurghada. Through a friend of a friend, I managed to get a hook-up for a driver to take me there and back for a decent price and meant that I wouldn’t have to survive the tourist buses for the day! My plan was to visit some of the ancient temples and also the Valley of the Kings – an ancient burial site for Egyptian Kings from roughly 2,500 years ago.

Egypt has a lot of similarities with Australia: they both have perfect sunshine all year round, good beaches and same type of desert landscape that continues forever. The culture is hugely different, Egypt being one of the oldest cultures/civilizations on the planet. The Valley of the Kings is immense & visiting the tombs gives you a good idea of how together the ancient Egyptians were with the story of the dead King drawn in hieroglyphs that you can still see today. Makes you wonder if anything that humans create now will still be around in 2500 years time??

From the Valley of the Kings, I drove out to visit a few other sites including Al-Bahir Temple and the Colossi of Memnon that were built about 3400 years ago. Huge and awesome, all of it built without the technology that we use today & photos never do things like this justice. The city of Luxor is constantly busy, but without all the tourists that Hurghada has so it does feel a little more “Egyptian”. Markets and Bazaars everywhere, you can buy pretty much anything you want for very little.

The trip home was uneventful, my driver constantly beeping and yelling at other drivers in Arabic and dodging the various herds of goats that are being moved along by their Bedouin shepherds. I’m hoping to next visit the pyramids in the coming weeks so stay tuned…

Talk to you soon,

Shane.

Nick Richardson & knees = :-(

Richo goes in tomorrow for his second operation on his right knee. He has to have a full recon & will be off the bike till about February next year. Bummer.  

Yesterday we met up & filmed one last little session at Beenleigh for a web video which will be posted in a week or two. Richo killed it & did some damn good riding for someone with half a knee.  

We wish you the best & quickest recovery mate!

Fantastic Plastic Pedals update

Here is a pic of the prototype sample on our plastic pedals due out August/September this year. This shows the shape of them but not the final finish as these samples are CNC machined. We do this first so to make sure its the perfect shape we want before opening the mold. I just thought I would show you this & should be able to show you the full pre production sample in a week or so. So watch this space.

I caught up with Tim Wood down at Beenleigh today where he is putting in some more of the new ramps for the park. We now have our first ever hitching post & it looks super fun for sure. We also now have a roller to quarter pipe with backrail which will be plenty of fun as well. They will be ready to ride by the weekend.

Shane Badman in Egypt

Shane Badman sent me email from Egypt… read on below.

Everything is going really well down here in Egypt. I’m living in a resort city called Hurghada about 4-5 hours south from Cairo on the Red Sea. The city is known mostly for it’s local diving scene and crystal clear water, but is also a popular destination for the super-rich and wealthy luxury boat owners as it’s central to a bunch of other places around the Middle East & Africa.

Living in England I heard through the grapevine that a local company in Egypt were looking for a rider to do demos for a few months. After a few phone calls followed by sending some footage, they were happy to ask if i’d come down for a few months to work with them. Admittedly, the lure of white sandy beaches, 40degree weather, no rain for months and months on end and the fact that all i’d be doing is endless riding was too good to pass up.

So for the next few months or so I’m here doing daily flatland demos in the newly opened Marina for tourists and the like. The lifestyle is good, the locals are friendly and I’ve got a bunch of good spots to ride at. I have a bunch of other trips planned around Egypt over the coming weeks so stay tuned for updates and photos!

Steve Woodward had his bike stolen the other day. Let’s hope the person that stole it gets hit by a truck. Don’t worry, Steve will be back on another Bloody Oath in no time.

ha, I got something private going on in tha backyard!…

ahaha, well, after many a conversation of how rad it would be, a lil bit of penny saving, and alot of pondering, I finally got a backyard ramp for my house, and it’s RAD to say the least. At the moment it’s at the wazman’s house for a lil (thanks wazman!), until i prep the area at my house, but hopefully by summertime it will be in place, with a few additions. The plan is to make it a sheet wider, put some big platforms on and then put a 6 foot facing crossways and maybe a roll up into a smaller quarter the other way, with a bowl corner and a elevated wallride going out of the 6 foot. kinda like Ryan’s backyard setup but probably a bit smaller. Either that or we’ll just build a bigger tranny each side. Come summer, it’ll be beach, barbies, backyard sessions, beers, bourbon and booyashaka’s! Millar i might need some of them colony ramp srickers!

Also below are some pics from the redbull dirt pipe that was in albury out the back of melbourne the other week, it was fuckin nutso! just big and scary! a good time was had by all and congrats to mike daly for putting on such an awesome event! And even more congrats to Rusty, who took the win, stoked to say the least. Rusty is just gnarly, super smooth, high, and the 4 tricks that he did were stretched and slow, just like tricks should be!  Rusty and his fiance and heading off to the states soon so the cashola was the icing in the cake for them, couldn’t have come at a better time! and congrats to Brendan Jones who came in second, jonesy is one of my favourite riders for sure, cause he goes fast and don’t give a fuck, big turndown flips and banana whip outs! laughing the whole way! I love booze! bye bye.

Finally in Canberra

After 3 days of driving while taking it easy, myself & Richo are finally in Canberra. Along the way we dropped into the 2020BMX magazine offices & Hell On Wheels. Both were cool to finally check out. It’s cool to see where all the magic for the mag happens & the shop is awesome too.

There was really bad weather the whole way down from Brisbane but as soon as we arrived into Canberra it cleared up. Perfect. We picked up both Mick Bayzand & Liam Fahy-Hampton from the airport & will be heading to check out Backbone BMX in the morning. Backbone is the centre of the BMX scene in Canberra & from what I’ve heard is one of the coolest BMX shops in Australia. Can’t wait to check it out. Then we’re hitting the streets. Yeah yeah !! Check back in the next days for news from our exploits here.
