Alex Hiam update

Hey guys,

I just got to California after spending 12 days in England. I’m here for 3 months. I wanted to say Thankyou so much for getting me out here. It’s truely a dream come true I had such a amazing time that I will never forget In England and I’m looking forward to the next 3 months In Cali.

England :
First day I had a super chill ride taking it easy and ending up having a fall and got concussed , spending the first 24 hours in hospital. It was rough. I am never riding with jetlag again. I got picked up from the hospital And drove 3 hours straight to Mongoose Jam the first weekend , met a lot of people there and had such a amazing time but unfourtunatly did not get to ride the contest. I was told I didn’t have to ride Saturday so I stayed in the hotel to rest and
Over come jetlag , then on Sunday I was feeling good to ride the Park and Street but because I wasn’t there Saturday my spot got taken. It was good to watch a contest and take it all in. I learnt a lot.

Then the second weekend I rode in Nass World contest. That was super crazy it was at a Huge music festival with kids, tents and techno music. I spent 3 days camping at the festival and riding all the contest. I competed in Dirt and park. I made it into the finals Dirt out of +40 riders and ended up placin 16th in the world finals for dirt. Pretty stoked, this was my first time riding a dirt contest so I surprised myself.

Park was what I was looking most forward to and what I am most comfortable on. The qualifiers there was 70 riders so it was Only 1 run to qualify to save time. Unfourtnaly I messed up my run and didn’t make the finals. Overall I had the best time competing at NASS I met so many cool people and learnt a lot. So looking forward to going back next year and I know what to expect.

In between the two contest I got amungst London city and rode a bunch of street. I shot these photos with Eisa Bakos for an interview in Endless Magazine ( popular UK BMX mag ) I love London the place is crazy I was in heaven riding through the streets there.

I also filmed a WEBISODE for one of the days.

Nathan Sykes update

Hey guys summer is here and that means fun in the sun! This month I took a trip to Florida with my girlfriend for her sisters wedding. We drove from Southern California to Pensacola Florida and back in 12 days. Lots of miles across the United States, 3 rental cars later, 2 new tires and our 4500 mile trip there and back was a success. Was able to meet up with style cat Chad Osborn in Texas for a morning sesh at a really rad park close to were he and his family lives. Made for a nice break in between all the hours Aubri and I had been putting in on the road. On your way home we stopped at a few spots in Arizona that are a must go to. Antelope Canon and Horseshoe Bend.

After getting back from the trip I have been getting some riding in down a Bundy Trails. Great place to ride right now with the weather being really warm. The trees hold back some of the sun most the day so it’s been nice cruising laps down there.

And as of now I also just finished the first week of BMX Summer camp with Team Soil in New Port. Had a rad group of kids for our first week. Mike Hucker Clark and Ryan Brennan and myself along with Dylan Stark for a few days help kids learn basic BMX skills, from riding quarter pipes and learning to jump and gain bike control. It was great week on the beach with this young riders. Can’t wait for week two!

Simon O’Brien Tokyo trip

Hey guys, Recently I was super fortunate to be invited to the G-Shock Real Toughness contest at Tokyo Dome. This event is organised by BMX legend Hiroshi from 430 and G-Shock. They are doing a lot for the
culture of BMX in Japan! The event was nothing short of amazing! From the best flatlanders, top street riders, skaters and best bboys in the world!! The action that went down was nuts!!

Unfortunately for me, a few too many touches kept me from proceeding in the comp. I was happy with some of the tricks i did, but just couldn’t ride away properly. I was only in Tokyo for a few days but the rest of the time was spent partying with the street and flat riders. Ed Zunda, Lashaan, Fudger, Reed Stark and the other boys love a drink, so it was a fun time….they are cool guys!

Once again…..another Epic Tokyo memory! Huge shout out to Hiroshi uehara / owner of 430.

Simon O’Brien update

I’ve just got home from my trip to Hawaii for the annual Flatland ‘Aloha Jam’ ! I had heard a lot of good things about Hawaii, and I sure wasn’t disappointed! In total I spent 8 days in Honolulu with some day trips around the island. The jam was on the saturday in a park which had two basketball courts, overlooked some of the city and the ocean. It was a little windy on the day but some great riding went down with no pressure to perform for a contest. The whole vibe of the jam was to hang out, meet new people, BBQ, and enjoy the basic feeling of BMX which is just hanging out and riding! Prizes were handed out throughout the day.

I was lucky enough to get to swim at pipeline, swim with turtles, meet lots of new people, enjoy great weather and enjoy riding as usual. The Hawaiian crew are a great bunch of people! Hopefully I make it again next year.



Jourdan Barba 2016 video

You may think Jourdan would be slowing down since he has 2 kids and a wife but you would be wrong. Jourdan makes good use of his time when on the bike as you will see in his new video. No slowing down for JB. Thanks to Chris Bracamonte for putting this piece together. Check out Jourdans signature Menace guard sprocket right here.
