Peta checks in…

Peta Shepherd continues her USA trip & reports in…read on.

I can’t remember what the last thing I sent in was, but I can tell you I’ve been having a ball since then! We’ve been on the road now for about 3 weeks and it’s all been a rad and crazy experience. I got to hit up Vegas while the Dew tour was on. Which was awesome, it would be the biggest BMX contest I’ve been to and the vibe was cool. After that we drove over in to Cali. The rain caught us which was a bummer, we got the chance to ride a few sweet indoor parks. I even got the chance to shoot with Fat Tony from RideBMX.

We headed up highway one after our few days in Cali to hit up Portland. The drive was long though beautiful along the coast and into the Redwood national forest. We even tried driving the van through a tree but it was just a bit to big. When we got to Portland it was cold and rainy and we had no where to stay, so we drove on to Seattle because we knew another girl rider Sam Lyons who kindly oftered us a bed at her house. Seattle had been raining a bit too, however Sam was able to get us into a cool little private barn ramp setup, which was weird to ride though very fun. The photo is from the little session we had there.

Mick Bayzand’s new bike…

Mick recently put together a fresh new rig with the limited edition Translucent Black which is only available at Strictly BMX. It looks pretty fresh to me, with just the right amount of gold in there.

Zac sighting.

I spotted this cool photo of Zac Miner on Doug Taylor’s portfolio site and thought I should share it. Zac just got back from America and is up in Brisbane for the next few days so keep an eye out for him floating about.

Daylight savings at it’s best!

Down here in Melbourne we have been fortunate enough to score some really nice weather the last few days. This photo is of Marnold enjoying an evening school mission that we did during the week.

Peta checks in…

Peta Shepherd sent in another update on her trip throughout the states… read on below.

Two days ago I left Salt Lake for Las Vegas with some mates. We had the best times along the way, we camped the first night in the hills of Utah, it was freezing! On the second day we drove to Snow Canyon and did some hiking and exploring, which was really awesome in the Lava flows. Then later that afternoon, while looking for a place to camp and rallying down some dirt roads, we got the van bogged for 4 hours which was very interesting…. It’s been the best fun so far and hope it keeps coming.

Yo yo !!

And all on a Sweet Tooth…

A while back I posted an edit on our site here from a Tim Knoll. It had some really original flatland/street moves which was amazing. Well, Tim needed a new frame a while back & he chose a Sweet Tooth for his new frame, I was stoked. Here is Tim’s latest edit & it’s got some completely original flatland/street moves on there. Check it out for sure.
