Alex Hiam – Bro Cam 2

Alex has been quietly collecting some footage while out riding with his mates & this is the end result – Bro Cam 2. Some really good technical ramp stuff in here. It’s awesome that every time I see Alex he has learnt another bunch of tricks. So good. Sit back & enjoy the Alex Hiam show. Alex also edited it this himself by the way.

Canberra trip.

A few of us are in Canberra at the moment filming and shooting an article for the next 2020. I really love Canberra, good people and good spots.

Newcastle Jam.

We are supporting yet another jam going down in the Newcastle area, these guys are really helping to build a great scene in the Central Coast of NSW.

Most of the guys on the team are putting new bikes together right about now & Marnold chose the 2012 Teddy V2 frame in our Bright Purple. Here is some iPhone action below with better photos to come soon but thought we would share this little teaser here now. Thanks to the guys at Backbone BMX for helping Marnold get his bike together.

Chris Courtenay checks in…

Chris Courtenay is in Greenville, NC at the moment & he wrote a quick email on what he has been up too…

Been in America for 6 weeks now, still got another 2 weeks left. Greenville is going awesome, been riding everyday. Not too many people in town at the moment, seeing it’s going into winter. It’s sorta better in a way that sessions are really small and the parks aren’t really packed! Also the weather is soo perfect to ride in!

Filmed a ten clip edit with Ryan at Jaycee park a couple of weeks back which I was pretty stoked to film, been wanting to do one for a while but injuries weren’t letting me.

Also Vitamin Water put on a comp at Skatecary which is an hour and a bit away from Greenville. I was fortunate enough to win 1st in the pro section. The park was a lot of fun to ride and it was an awesome day, was stoked.

I attached a photo aswell and cant wait to get back to film some more Colony stuff on this new projects Coops has got going on!

Talk soon mate – Chris.

Bayzand update

Mick sent through an update about his recent travels in the West…

I’ve been lucky enough to the have been invited to do some box jump demos at the Perth Royal Show for 8 days and 8 nights. It was a really fun time and the demos were sick not to mention the amazing fire works display.

I just want to thank Shaun Jarvis from Freestyle Now for hooking this up and all the amazing people I met and rode with for making it such an enjoyable experience.

Now I am traveling all around Perth doing lots of coaching clinics, demos and judging lots of comps so if your in the area come have a shred with me.

Brock Olive – Ten Clips

A few weeks back we took Brock down to Capalaba park in Brisbane to film a ten clips web video. He really put in work for this so we hope you enjoy it.

Edited: Cooper Brownlee.

Filmers: Cooper Brownlee (fisheye) Stewart munro (long lens).

Advert: Marnold

Marnold has the current advert in Ride doing a nice 180 railhop at the end of a line. Incase you missed it Marnold recently had a good interview over on The Union which you can read here.

Ten Clips continue.

A couple of days ago we spent the afternoon out at Albany Creek park in Brisbane filming another 10 clips edit with Tom, it went really well so expect to see it out in the coming weeks. Incase you missed it check here for Tom’s previous 10 clips edit.

A new bike…

The last few times I have been at Woodridge skate park for a ride, there has been a young kid there who has always shown some skills on his bike. The bike he had was a real piece of work & he needed something decent big time. We were there on Saturday for a roll & once again, 9 year old Josh was there hanging out. He was still on his old bike & I thought I could help him out some what, so I told him to meet me at the park the next day.

The next morning I went through the warehouse & built him up a bike from spare stuff we had laying around. I was pretty stoked to be able to help him out & he was very stoked for sure. Enjoy the bike Josh & I can’t wait to see you ride again soon.

Ride On BMX LTD #43

The guys at Ride On BMX just recently sold their last LTD frame, number 43 of 50. Decked out with a good array of Colony parts it looks the goods. Hit up Steve at Ride On if you’re after a custom build as all the ones they do always turn out awesome.

Slay the Rails

Really good video from the guys at 2020. Marnold, Brock, Zac and Liam all have some great footage in this web video. Zac took it hard multiple times trying whip to over ice down the rail, I can’t wait for the day he pulls that move. Marnold came 2nd with a stupid amount of combos, opposite x-up crooks?

Brazilian update…

Things are really moving along for BMX in Brazil & much of this is to do with the hard work from the guys at Dream BMX. They recently put on a dirt jam & below you can see the video from it. Pretty cool vibe & looks like everyone had a great day. We supported the event with some prizes as well.

In more news from Brazil, Dream BMX also recently had a trade show booth & showed off all our new products we have coming out for 2012. See some pics below of their booth.

Our Brazilian team rider & good mate, Valvoline is also headed over to Brisbane for a month of riding soon which will be really good to have him here. Should be some good times ahead for sure. That’s him on the trade show booth. Expect to see him here for the month of November.

Crispy Wooo.

Both Tom and Brock have some really good clips in this Crispy web video.

Seen our DVD yet?

It took 2 years to produce & we couldn’t be happier with the end product. If you haven’t seen it yet, track yourself down a copy at a dealer near you now. Check out what the team worked so hard on & the hard work that went into the production side of things as well.

King of the Jibs 2 video

The second King of the Jibs event went down back in August of this year & here is the video from the day.

The riding that went down was amazing & everyone seemed to have a great time. Thanks to all those that rode, came to watch & help out with the actual running of the day. You all made it a great success. Unfortunately though, the ramps have now been sold & this was the last one on this course. But we will be looking at doing another event next year… more news on that later.

The lighting inside wasn’t the greatest for filming but our warehouse manager Glen McLaughlin, did a great job doing so & he also edited this piece up. Enjoy.

2012 Endeavour… stolen !!

A young rider had the misfortune of having his brand new 2012 Endeavour in Matt Black/Purple as seen below taken forcefully from him in Crestmead on the southside of Brisbane yesterday. These bikes aren’t even out yet so should be pretty easy to spot around. If you happen to see the bike below please contact Matt & the guys at 99 Bikes Browns Plains.

On the road.

Cooper has been on the road the past few days making his way to Brisbane. He spent a few days in Canberra riding with Zac and the locals, unfortunately Zac crashed on his first clip whilst filming his ten clips at Woden park but he was able to snap this photo of Coops shooting the bee’s.

Dealer highlight – Pushys Albury

Cooper recently dropped into the guys at Pushys in Albury. The manager there Jake runs a tight ship with the help of BMX guru’s Simon & Tenna. They stock a full range of our products & are the place to go for Colony in the Albury area. They also usually head down to the Wodonga park every Monday at 6.30pm with a few giveaways just for fun. It’s things like this why you should be going to the guys at Pushys for your BMX needs.
