Ryan Guettler interview…

Once again today we bring two interviews from the team…

Ryan Guettler had probably some of the worst runs of luck injury wise while trying to film for the DVD. All in all though, he still managed to get some good footage captured for his section. Find out what he went through to get his section done in the video below.

Filmed & edited by Ryan Guettler & Bret Trigg.

Chris Courtenay interview…

Chris Courtenay also had his fair share of injuries while filming for the DVD but still managed to come through with an impressive section regardless. This being a true showing of his commitment to the project & his love for riding. Check out his thoughts of the whole experience.

Filmed & edited by Stewart Munro.

Marnold interview…

Today we are bringing you two videos in one day…

First up we have Marnold who has put together a really solid section for the DVD. I felt he really came of age with his riding during the course of filming & really started to shine the last year or so. So good to see it unfold before us all. Check out what he went through to get his part done.

Filmed & edited by Cooper Brownlee.

This has been a while coming with Marnold really showing his riding abilities the last year or so filming for the DVD. It is with great pleasure that I announce that he has earned a spot on our pro team from today onwards. Not only is he a great guy but one hell of a rider too. Thanks for all your efforts mate, they are appreciated.

Tom Stretton interview…

Filmed & edited by Stewart Munro. Once again all riding footage used is B roll & not in the finished product.

Greenville premiere report…

A very hung over Ryan Guettler sent in a quick report on the premiere night in Greenville last night & his thoughts on the DVD. Read on below…

Last night was epic !! Sorry this is going to be short but I’m so sick from all the alcohol and monster.

The DVD was so sick, Stewart Munro did such a good job editing it.

Last night was crazy every one had a good time the bar even let me bring in the boxing gloves and things got out of control. They let us play BMX DVD’s all night and the drinks didn’t stop. We even got a live band for a bit.

No one is riding today because were all hung over but it was a fun time. Today I’m just chilling but but I’ve re-watched the DVD 8 times already, I love Tom’s section, he is crazy.

Thank you so much for the DVD and letting me be apart of every thing Colony is doing. You rule Clint !! – Ryan.

Yo yo !!

Moving on up… T Strett

I am very proud to announce that from today, Tom Stretton has earned himself a spot on the pro team with his efforts on the DVD & generally just being a kick ass guy. Thanks for all your work mate, it’s a pleasure to have you on the team & you’re such an important part of Colony.

The riding footage used in all these interviews is B roll footage that did not make the actual finished product.

Interview filmed & edited by Cooper Brownlee with additional footage filmed by Flagz.

Product update – Miner Frame

Zac Miner has been working hard on his DVD section the past 2 years & it was decided about a year ago that we would grace him with his own signature frame.

That frame called the Miner, will be out around the world this September. It will come in 20.75″ & 21″ sizes. It also has a short & responsive rear end at 13.25″ which is exactly what Zac wanted. It has internal gussets on the tapered top & down tubes for strength. We will release more info & specs closer to the release date.

Shown in our 2012 colour – Matt Red.

Unleaded & Soul BMX Magazine have teamed together to give someone the chance to win one a Miner frame. So if you live in France get to it. Click here now for full details.
