Zac Miner on a mission

Zac sent in a little story on how he he drove to Melbourne to pick up his bike. One rather crazy mission, read on…

Soooo, we drove out of Canberra at 5pm on Sunday to drive to Melbourne to get my bike that was still there after the King of the Jibs comp. Now if you don’t know it, Melbourne is about 7 hours away by car, plus I was meant to be at work at 7 in the morning. If you add it up it was never happening!
Two awesome Queanbo girls were nice enough to drive me down though, haha. We got to Albury to pick up Josh Mete, didnt take him long to get nude! Punched it through to Melbs, picked my bike and said hello to Thomas at 2 in the morning, turned around and left for Canberra. Around the time we dropped Mete off, Amy and I were feeling seedy from drinking the whole way, so we proceeded to spew at some servo.
Made it back to Canberra at like 10am or so, was super tired n super hung over but I had my bike and I was so stoked!

Cooper Brownlee is once again doing what he loves most, travelling on the road. He is on his way up to Brisbane to ride & photograph our 2011 ranges which arrive in the country in the next week. He stopped off in Sydney for the weekend & rode a new street plaza there to get this photo. Thanks to John Young for clicking the button.

Last years One Cup event in Japan, saw our own Shinatro Misawa crowned as the champion. This year he is the poster boy & I am sure will do just as well again.

Chris Courtenay checks in…

Chris Courtenay is well on the road to recovery from his knee reco earlier this year. He should be all set to be back on his bike in November. He will be putting together a brand new 2011 model Teddy frame with all our new parts in the next few weeks. That is once his broken hand heals up… Yes, he broke his hand recently during an ‘incident’ off his bike. Ask him next time you see him what happened… haha.

Death by Wasabi…

Last night was the Death by Wasabi contest at the LUX BMX Store in Brisbane. It was a great night & there was a very good turnout. Six people signed up for the wasabi eating contest for their chance to win a 2011 Teddy frame in our new Wasabi colour way. I have never seen so much Wasabi eaten in such a short period. In the end it came down to Tom McIvor with the win taking home the Teddy frame & Henry Boffin as the runner up getting a Wasabi Official stem & sprocket. Our first 2011 product customer ended up being Ali Hassan by getting himself a set of Wasabi Oneway pegs, congrats.

Thanks to everyone that showed up & thanks to Evan & Mitch from LUX for putting it all on.

Our 2011 ranges will be in stores Australia wide the week of September 6th. Most other countries will receive their shipments in September as well. Check with your local distributor or Colony dealer for full info.

Well almost a year later you can now get your own Colony Descendent as a Flick Trix toy. There will also be an Endeavour, a Cube & later on a Sweet Tooth bike available. Check them out at your nearest Flick Trix retailer now.

Note: These are not available through us here at Colony, sorry.
