BMX for Floods on Sunday…

Make sure you get to your local BMX for Floods Jam on Sunday & donate all you can. This is a for a great cause & you could even have some fun & win yourself some fantastic gear. I know we have given over $8,000 retail worth of product for all nine jams alone. So, with everyone else’s help we should be able to raise some serious funds for those in need.

Check out the official website for the jams too by clicking here now. Over on theĀ ESPN site there is an interview with Shaun Jarvis from Perth, who’s brain child these jams are, check it by clicking here now.

Dealer highlight – Crossley Cycles

I think it’s pretty safe to say that Crossley Cycles is the longest running BMX shop in Australia. I first went there myself back in 1988 & have gone there ever since. Both Richard & Mick Lav know their stuff & have one of the best stocked shops without a doubt. If they don’t have it then it’s not worth having… check them out online or better yet, give them a call. Click here to check out their website now.

Product highlight – 2011 Lowcut Pro

One of our more exclusive models from our series of flagship pro complete bikes is the Lowcut Pro. These are available around the world in a very limited number so may be a little hard to track down.

Chris Courtenay at Dirtpipe…

Chris was down in Victoria for the Redbull Dirtpipe, here is a little write up about his trip. Thanks to Mitchell Morison for the photo…

Dirtpipe 2011 was unfortunately rain out all weekend and the actual competition was called off. Due too everyone having set flights home, a couple of riders had to cut it short, so Redbull put on a jam to keep everyone psyched. The pipe was rediculous and soo much better and more built up than last year, was soo pumped to leave this year in my own car and not a ambulance! All round good trip and a perfect way to spend a birthday!

More Michal Mycek…

Our main man in Poland, Michal Mycek has been busy. He has some riding in a full length online video for SKNY. Check his footage from 1.30 to 5.07 on the video below.
