Oskars Zajarskis.

Our flow rider from Latvia, Oskars Zajarskis sent through this edit of him riding a cool looking indoor park. The whip to fakie line was great!

2011 almost behind us all…

I had a good chilled ride with some long time mates at Fairfield park yesterday. What a good way to end out the year & what a mammoth year 2011 has been as well. Seems to have gone so fast with so much stuff happening along the way.

Thanks to everyone that has supported us over the past year, we do appreciate it. Looking forward to a great 2012 ahead & more good times on our bikes that we all love. Happy new year everyone !!

The Badman checks in…

If you’re into flatland make sure you check out Shane’s online flatland specific store. The only place to get flatland gear in Australia. Newcircle is the name & flatland is the game.. check it.

Shane Badman sent in a quick update of his travels of late.

Left Brisbane about a week ago or so and with my bike in my car I drove down the east coast of Australia taking in a bunch of places along the way. It was good to check out Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour again but with all the rain we’ve been having here the past few weeks unfortunately I couldn’t get out for any decent sessions. So driving on, I went through Sydney, past Canberra and on through the Snowy Mountains to a little country town called Traralgon in eastern Victoria where my girlfriend’s family live. Plan is to have Christmas here, then spend a little time in Melbourne with the local riders before heading on to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Road and then back to Brisbane.

Since I’ve been away I’ve been getting in as much riding as possible and even did a demo yesterday at Toongabbie Primary School, which is an awesome little country town out in country Victoria. Thanks for having me guys and it was awesome to see the kids stoked on BMX and Flatland! More updates soon… Shane.

Glennie our warehouse manager, uploaded this a while back now but it’s a collection of footage from back in 1996 / 1997 from the comps held at Fairfield in Sydney. Look out for clips from myself, Simon O’Brien & Glennie himself.

These comps were some of my best memories of BMX for me no doubt. Bloody good times for sure.
