What are you up to today?

Today im going on a trip to Scotland with 15 of my mates for the weekend! Gonna be mint! get out of Preston for a bit.

Tell us something about yourself people probably don’t know…

I dont know, I hate spiders!

It tends to rain a lot over there? How do you survive the winter months?

haha I only just manage! Fortunately there are alot of indoor skateparks within an hour from were I live and I have built some ramps in my grandads barn! Hopefully there wil be an edit from there soon!

What do you do for a job?

I’m a bike mechanic at Leisure Lakes Bikes but will hopefully soon be an arborist!

You have an interview coming up in RideUk soon, I bet you are stoked to see how it comes out, what was it like shooting for that?

Yeah I’m quite nervous to see how it comes out should be funny! shooting for it was awesome as one of my best riding companions (the world famous Northern John) shot all the pictures for it. I love shooting with John because nothing is rushed and its always really chilled it was more like just shooting some pictures in a session! and his pictures always turn out awesome!

Above All BMX have moved…

Above All BMX have moved to a new location & to help celebrate this they are having a promo where you can win a Teddy frame… click here now for the details.

Helping out a rider…

About 2 years ago (I think), I noticed a young rider at Woodridge skatepark here in Brisbane. He was riding an 18″ bike that was clearly too small for him. I always said he should get a 20″ bike, sooner rather than later. I hadn’t seen him in ages but saw him recently at Woodridge ripping on a 20″ bike. It was good to see but it turned out it was his friends bike & his was broken beyond repair & it was still the old 18″ bike.

I figured I could do something about his bike less situation & got a bunch of old parts together. Ended up building him up an old Sweet Tooth of Alex’s with a bunch of parts we had around. Much better suited for him & he has already learnt a few new tricks, even in the rain.

Now before we get hundreds of emails asking for a free bike, please don’t do so. This was a special occasion & one that can’t happen all that often.
