Asian X Games in China

Liam Zingbergs, Marnold & Brock Olive all scored invites to the Asian X Games in Shanghai set for the 28th of April till the 1st of May.

They will be mixing it with some of the biggest names in BMX street. The riders list looks like this…¬†Jeremiah Smith, Dakota Roche, Dennis Enarson, Garrett Reynolds, Chad Kerley, Van Homan, Ty Morrow & Daniel Johnson. Our 3 riders will round out that list of riders. That’s one impressive line up to say the least.

The guys will be staying on for a few extra days after the comp to explore the streets of Shanghai. Cooper Brownlee will also be heading over with the guys to catch some action outside of the comp as well. Should be good.

Fakie anyone?

Thanks to Evan at Lux BMX I will soon be back on the freecoaster program. It’s been many years since I ran a freecoaster but should be fun to mess around with it again. Evan did a few tweaks on his in-house lathe for me on this freecoaster that may or may not make production as a Colony product… time will tell.

If you would like to see this freecoaster go into production as a Colony product, just ‘like’ this post here via Facebook.

If you’re after any custom mods for your bike, go see Evan at Lux BMX has he now offers an in-house lathe service where he can do special mods.
