On the road…

We just got to Brisbane, it was a long drive! We had rain most the time but we did get a chance to hit up a couple of spots which was fun, just like this Swansea park in NSW that was just finished and super super fun!

Update from the road…

Cooper, Zac, Mick & Liam are almost in Brisbane now on their trip. Here is a photo of Coops before the rain hit in Sydney.

Rainy Days…

So myself, Mick Bayzand and Liam Zingbergs are in Sydney at the moment trying to film some clips, the weather isn’t on our side but Liam did manage to get some solids at this spot before the rain hit us…

On the road again…

Cooper, Mick & Liam hit the road yesterday on their way from Melbourne to Brisbane via Sydney. Zac will also be meeting up with the guys Sunday morning for the last leg up here. They’re all coming up here to hang for a week then we all head back down to Sydney then Canberra the week after. Should be fun times.

Make sure to come along & say g’day at one of our store appearances scheduled over the next few weeks. They start this Thursday at Crossley Cycles then Friday at Helensvale BMX.

Cooper checks in…

Cooper Brownlee took a little four day trip with a couple of friends recently. They went down the south west of Victoria and just over the border of South Australia to Mt Gambier for something a little different. Cooper said they had a super fun time and wanted to thank all the locals they hung out with, thanks !!

Cooper Brownlee is…

… always busy !! He recently has been keeping occupied building the set up for the King of the Jibs contest we’re holding in a few weeks, stripping his bike back to bare metal & riding as much as humanly possible. Cooper is setting off on a road trip to Adelaide this coming weekend to shred & film. He will also be up here in Brisbane in a few weeks to photograph our entire 2011 ranges which will hit stores in September across the country. Never a dull moment for Cooper.

Melbourne is cold.

It might be sunny all year round up in Colony HQ land, Queensland. But down south here in Melbourne we sometimes have to retreat to the indoors to escape the rain. Last weekend we had a real fun session at a skater built spot (no beef here as far as I know). It works both ways you see. They skate spots we build and vice versa.  Here are a couple photos from the day of myself and Marnold. Thanks to Sam Illman for pressing the button on my photo.



Colony Ausbike Jam update #4

I started work on the two main banks for part of the course, before I built the 2nd bank I gave this one a quick test. Stoked on the pop it gives you!
