Alex Hiam wins Core Series

Just as of an hour ago Alex Hiam secured himself his first overall Core Series championship win. After the last few years of getting runner up he got it together today to win with some amazing riding. It’s crazy to think what he will be doing in the years to come & I can’t wait to see it all take shape.

Congrats again Alex, you deserve it mate !!

Tom Stretton on Colony

After leaving his previous sponsor recently, I could not give up the opportunity to have Tom on Colony. I have always been a fan of his riding, so tech & original. Tom is a totally cool person as well & as such will fit on the team perfectly. He will also start work soon on a web edit, so keep an eye out for that.

Welcome aboard mate !!

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.
