Simon has been keeping busy of late with a few projects such as his next solo DVD which I am sure will be amazing. Can’t wait to see that one.

He also recently just got back from Sydney doing some demos at a b-boy break dance event. He said it was amazing with some of the best breakers in the world there. He also clocked some footage there as the scenery was amazing.

Simon also put together a couple new bikes based around his DejaVu frame, one for street/ramp & the other for flatland. Check them out below.

I am very pleased & proud to announce the introduction of Australia’s premiere online flatland specific BMX store, Newcircle.

Long time friends Shane Badman & Ross Lavender have teamed up to bring riders in Australia, a place to get all their flatland needs from Colony & much more in the future. They are also set up to export to the world to any country. I believe this is going to be a huge benefit to the local flatland scene & I am excited as to what the future may bring.

Click here to find out all about Newcircle now & while you are there support some fellow Aussie riders & buy some stuff !!

Shane Badman checks in…

Shane sent in an email on what’s been going on with him. Read on below…

After spending nearly a year in Sweden it was time to get moving. It’s been well over 3 years now since i’ve been living in Europe & i’m starting to lose track of the countries that i’ve visited & lived in. Never forget the riders that i’ve met, nor the riding sessions that i’ve had though… funny how some things stick in your mind?!

I’m in Hungary at the moment just chilling & riding as much as I can. Living in Sweden was great, but winters that last 6 months & very few riders make it tough for any nomadic BMXer. Hungary is awesome for riding. The weather rocks 9 months of the year & all the riders are super motivated – probably a reason I’ve been here every year since 2005. I’ve been staying with one of my good mates, Andras Pentek, who co-owns OG Bike Company. In between him running the business & their shop, we’ve been hitting up spots all over the country including the OG Summer Camp & Contest in Szombathely & visiting riders in a bunch of different cities.

I’ve got another week of riding here & then off to the sunny UK for more riding… stay tuned!
