Mick gives us the latest on his trip….

Hey, it’s Mick again! Kimberly and I just came out of the rainforest in Paluma Range National Park. They call it “the village in the clouds,” and it sure was. We drove up a winding road forever to get to the top of the jungle. We hiked along the creek bed at Crystal Creek jumping over boulders and loosing ourselves further into the jungle. I went off on my own at one point and nearly stepped on a 6m long python! This thing could’ve swallowed a cow whole. I’ve never ran down a waterfall so quick in my life. Kimberly says it’s the first time she’s ever heard me scream. The river itself was the most amazing swimming whole I’ve swam in. The water was freezing, but beautiful. You came out feeling so refreshed. I swam around the rapids for ages. Then we hiked through some pretty dense jungle until we came across a set of some even bigger waterfalls. I went off on my own and followed the rocks nearly to the bottom of the mountain. That was a real adventure. I nearly died a couple of times crossing falling trees and leaping across the stones. I felt like a little kid again getting myself into trouble and finding my way out. It was a crazy adventure to say the least..

Advert – Cooper Brownlee

Cooper has the most recent advert in the current Albion mag. You can see the clip of this feble to over smith in his left overs edit that came out last week.

VW Day Out…

This has pretty much nothing to do with BMX but thought it may be of interest of some out there. For those that know me, know that I am a VW fan. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday here, so I went down to a VW Show N Shine in my beloved ’62 Type 3 Squareback. It was a perfect day to chill out & go for a cruise. I captured a few images from the day & here they are below.

Mick Bayzand update.

Bayzand has been all over the place up north of late, here is the latest from Teddy.

Hey guys, it’s Mick again to let you know some more of what I’ve been up to. Kimberly and I sailed on a catamaran for a few days around the Whit Sundays. It was amazing. We woke up in the early hours of the morning to snorkel the reef. Underneath the surface the coral and fish were mind blowing. I’ve never seen so many crazy colours altogether. One day we even saw a whale breach the water, it was right out of a documentary. We got to go to White Haven beach. It’s by far the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen. We walked up to the lookout where you could see the water and sand swirl together down below like a painting. It was unreal. By night we got to drink with the others on board and the crew. Thanks to the Skipper and crew for making it such a great trip, something we’ll remember for a very long time.

Brake madness…

Cooper has a new oneclip over on the Focalpoint site with some front & rear brake action on my bike… guess I better learn some new tricks since he just did all 3 of mine… haha.

A little BMX from Spain…

Our distributor in Spain, Promotions Otreal have been helping out a local rider there with Colony parts for a little while now. His name is Ruben Vicente Arebalo & has good clips in the video below put together from the summer riding with his friends. Look out for Ruben with the dark curly afro style hair. Enjoy. Thanks to Tito for helping out Ruben.

Left overs anyone?

This edit is made up of Cooper Brownlee’s left overs that didn’t make the cut from our DVD, check it out. If you haven’t seen our DVD yet, track yourself down a copy at any Colony retailer now.

Yo yo !!

Online store…

We have now launched a retail online store where you can buy all our products except our complete bikes. With the age of the internet & the online store well upon us all, it was time we moved with the times & offered such a service ourselves.

We would still recommend that you buy from your local BMX shop if you have one in your area but use this retail online store (or any online store for that matter) when you do not have such a luxury of a local store near you.

This store will also serve as place where riders in countries that may not have Colony distribution can get our products easily as we will send to anywhere in the world. We will also from time to time, release special limited edition items on here that will only be available directly from us as well.

You can get to our retail online store by clicking the button to the right hand side of the site.
