Mick Bayzand’s nightmare

Mick sent me a pic of his nightmare at the moment that is his troubling knee problems. He hurt it a while back & it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It’s so bad right now that he needs to wear this brace here 24/7. I feel for you mate… I hope it starts to get better soon. Mean while he has been taking it ‘easy’ by digging trails in Canada. Rest up mate.

Zac Miner back from China

Zac Miner recently went to China for the Asian X Games in Shanghai. It was his first time overseas & he said it was an experience for sure, read on below…

Hey mate…

China was good and bad, as far as traveling overseas for the first time it was pretty crazy, there are so many people in Shanghai. The city is huge and caotic. I got to hang out with a heap of new people, Kym Grosser and Eric Holley were super cool and I hung out with them a heap.

As far as the comp went, I was all sweet in practice and come qualifying I rode terrible, I sucked! Just couldnt put it together and it kinda made the trip a bit of a downer because of it. Sorry mate, didn’t rep Colony the best this time.
The people that made finals rode well, Grosser did some amazing stuff. Garret is on a level of his own and definately deserved first. Maybe you’ll see some more photos somewhere? Here are a couple pics I ripped off Kym.

Welcome to the team, Paddy Gross

I would like to formally welcome Paddy Gross from Trier, Germany to our flow team. I have known Paddy for a very long time now & have always been a fan. I first meet him way back in 2000 at the Worlds in Koln. Since then I have ridden & hung out with him on many occasions & they they have always been a blast. I am proud to have Paddy a part of the Colony family.

Guettler checks in…

Ryan sent me a quick email on his recent travels… enjoy.

I’m sitting at LAX airport waiting to fly to Greenville, I was just in Japan for the last week because I had to do a Vans demo for the US military with Colin Mackay, Bucky, Coco, Scotty Cranmer and Josh Boarding.

It turned out to be really fun, there was a crazy flu scare so the plane ride was a bit scary but we got there safe. Nate Wessel built a sweet set up with a 10-foot box, which was rad. The demos went really good with every one riding well and the troops seemed to love it but there were lot of calls for the “BACKIE”. There was a Vans filmer so keep and eye out for a pod cast from Vans.

We also got to go around and look at the jets, aircraft carrier and some subs, really crazy to see in person SO big. After 4 days of demos we got 2 days off so we split to Tokyo and did some shopping and sight seeing. I brought some weird gadgets that you will only find in Japan ones is the little cube sound box for ipod, it’s the size of a bottle cap but super loud and I also got a watch that took me about an hour to read the time but looks sick, hahaha.

Tokyo is like another plant every one is like 4 foot tall and speak almost no English at all so it was hard to get a Jack and Coke. They also don’t like tattoos, so I stood out real bad. We would get on the train and I’d see people whispering or just straight up point at me, pretty crazy. So I got a long sleeve t-shirt.

It’s good to be almost home I going to finish up the web edit on the backyard ramps and start building up a new bike.

Tim Wood wins Gold

I got a text late last night from Tim saying he had just won vert at the Asian X Games in China. So stoked for him. Sounds like he rode amazing with a 900 to start off with, then a mixture of no handed 5’s, normal 5’s, whips & flairs. He even beat some big names in the process. Congrats Tim !!

The only pic I could find… thanks ESPN.
