The BMX Warehouse.

As you may have heard the other day  Ryan and Daniel Dhers have taken over Dave Mirras warehouse, well here is the latest info from Ryan about the plans…

“Because it has been such a private BMX warehouse for so long we will be opening it other riders. THIS does not mean you can just show up and Ride but if you message our facebook page or email you can find out riding times and event dates.”


Clint is down here in Melbourne for the weekend, yesterday afternoon we rode Ringwood park with a bunch of the locals who were super pumped on any front wheel moves from Millar. Thanks to the local crew for having fun with it.

Valvo update.

Valvo, our team rider from Brazil sent us in some photos from his local bowls that he rides. He also mentioned he will have en edit out in a few weeks so keep an eye out for that aswell.

Coming soon… The Colony DVD

We have been keeping it kinda on the down low for a while now but our first full team DVD will be out in mid July. Filming has been wrapped up now & editing is in the final stages. We have been filming for two years now & clocked up some serious amounts of footage from the team. Look out for more news here in the weeks ahead.

Zac sent in a quick update about that he has been up to…

“I’m still in Canberra having a ball, working to get my move to Brissy underways, hopefully all comes good! Been riding heaps of late, mainly skatepark just getting stuff down. I went out on the weekend though and started filming for a Backbone edit with some of the crew, awesome day in the end.”

New Zealand circa 2007…

Nitai recently found some photos in an old hard drive from our first team trip we did back in 2007 to New Zealand.
