For someone who has a messed up knee right now & maybe shouldn’t even be riding, Mick is doing pretty well it seems going by these pics he sent in.

Paddy Gross checks in…

Paddy Gross sent me an email on what he has been up to of late, read on below.

I’ve just got back from the Vans “Let it Ride” European tour and the Vans “BMX Chess” contest in Switzerland last weekend which was pretty fun. I got third place tie with Bruno Hoffmann with my Colony machine and it seems like there is a lot people who ride Colony parts. Dude seriously, there have been so much riders with Colony parts, it’s been awesome to see that. Also a lot of guys been stoked on my bike. Good thing I went there, had a good time and I think it’s been good that a Colony rider showed up, the kids been stoked. Achim was there as well, he was one of the judges and was riding the miniramp, its always good to see him ride you know.

Well I am preety much getting ready for the next things, tomorrow I am going to ride a demo in huge amusement park here in Germany and on Friday I am heading to Cologne for the People’s Store Jam at the North Brigade skatepark.

Cheers, Paddy.

Roadtrip Glennie

Long time good friend of mine Glennie, just got back from his own little solo mission up north QLD & rode some cool spots, one being the amazing mini ramp you see here below at Woodgate. Glen said there were kangaroos right beside the ramp as you can in the pics & the beach right there as well, sounds like a dream come true. Will have to venture on up there soon I think. Glen also put together an alternative bike fully equipped with front brakes & 4 pegs… yeah !!

Simon O’Brien checks in…

Simon O’Brien sent in an email on his travels in Japan the last weeks. Read on below…

So I’m at the end of my trip now, it was a fantastic time. Catching up with friends, sight seeing in Tokyo and 2 hrs north of Tokyo, went with my girl(Akane) up there for 2 days, went and saw some nice temples and stayed in a traditional japanese hotel,that was awesome! It was at a real small town and we went walking and came across a small shrine to the penis god, pretty funny.

I went to a small BMX jam in West Tokyo which was cool to check out some of the local talent, it was put on by a local shop in a side street, low key and fun. While in Tokyo I checked out Odaiba, Asakusa, Akihabara, Ueno Zoo, Kita-senju (amazing square and sunny diner) and lot’s of other places. Was a great relaxing time, lots of amazing Japanese food and beer,
and temples. Enjoyed it so much, already thinking of planning next trip back there! 🙂 – Simon.

I got so pumped in France on their scooters that when I got back to Greenville I brought 3 of them to race around town on to save on fuel. Yhey cost $2.50 to fill up and will do 130 miles, hahaha. So crazy. We’re getting bike racks built on them and soon they all will be painted soon. Theres the NYRM one and theres going to be a Colony one and a Beenleigh Bandits one too, hahaha sooo sweet. Here is 2 out of the 3 we got. – Ryan.

Copped a firework to the ear from my housemate Thomas, apparently I bit him or something ha! Then on Monday went paint balling, which was awesome. We all def came out with some bruises. I lost a bet to Puniard and had to take a paintball to bare skin from 5 metres away… stinging a little today, haha. Nick Gascoine was in town so we shot a few things… here’s some filla I guess 🙂 Hope all is good – Zac.
