Broc Raiford checks in…

Broc Raiford had a good weekend just gone, read below for what he got up too…

How have things been man? Hope you’re doing well. Yesterday at the BREC park in Baton Rouge, Louisiana I took home the win in a high air contest. I aired out around 8ft. It was held on a small hip but was still really fun. Stoked to see how much BMX is growing in Louisiana. I won a complete bike which I plan to give away to someone in need. Below is a picture of me and the other two riders who placed 2nd and 3rd. Overall it was really rad experience. Talk soon -Broc.

Daylight savings!

Down here in Melbourne we are fortunate enough to get daylight savings for 6 months of the year, which basically means at its peak it’s light until 9pm. We are taking full advantage of good weather and long days! Marnold smith to hardway.

Dealer highlight – Crossley Cycles

I think it would be safe to say that Crossley Cycles in Manly QLD, are one of the oldest running & original BMX stores in Australia. I myself first went there back in August of 1988 & have been going there ever since. Richard has done so much for the BMX scene in Brisbane & Australia for that matter & never asks for anything in return. Anyone that knows him, knows what I am talking about. In recent years (over ten actually) Mick Lav has become a very integral part of Crossley’s & pretty much runs the place these days.

They recently built up a custom 2011 Lowcut frame in Wasabi with Polished 2012 parts & it looks the goods. Check it out below & contact Crossley’s if you want to make it yours.
