Straight out of the burbs of Paris…

Le Goff ‘Libellule’ Guillaume one of our flow riders from France, put in some work recently with this really well put together edit produced by Hadrian Picard. It’s well worth checking out. You can also click here now to check out a little interview with Libellule on the video. Thanks to the guys at Unleaded for the hook up.

Yo yo !!

Broc Raiford – Lights out edit.

Thanks to Andrew Sanford for filming and editing this cool edit of Broc at their local indoor park. The guys lit up certain areas with flood lights and seemed to have fun doing it. Feeble to 270 footjam was rad.

Tom Stretton’s new setup.

Tom set up a new bike recently so we snapped a photo of it, looks pretty rad if you asked me! If you never saw it or what another look at it check Tom’s Colony edit from a couple months ago here, edited by John Young.


Know the team – Paddy Gross.

Paddy rides for Colony over in Germany, if you would like to learn a little bit more about the man, check out the quick Q&A below…


What are you up to today?

I’ve been riding  a demo at a kids festival in Hamburg/Germany.

Tell us something about yourself people probably don’t know…

I believe in god but I am not religious at all, it’s just between me & him. it’s cool to send a little prayer everyday to say thanks or if he could have an eye on my friends and loved ones and keep everyone save.

What’s the weather like there at the moment in Germany?

Spring is here and just told us that summer is on its way by spoiling us with lots of sunshine.

Any plans to travel any time soon?

I am working a lot to save up to visit Australia by the end of this year. I haven’t been there yet and I can’t wait to see the country and see the Colony family.

If someone asked you why they should come visit Germany what would you tell them?

There’s lots of history, beautiful girls, unique spots to ride and because Germany is a small country you’re able to visit another country in no time.

Broc wins again…

Our flow shredder in the USA, Broc Raiford recently won a comp at his local park in Louisiana. You can click here for a full report over on the Ride BMX site. Congrats Broc  & thanks for repping Colony mate !!

What are you up to today?

Well its a nice sunny sunday so perfect! im gonna go riding with Troy Charlesworth and Nitai and hopefully get some photos and clips for a lil something we’ve been working on!

Have you always lived in Queensland?

Yeah I was born in Mackay then moved to Brisbane!

I would say you are more known for your park riding but lately it seems you have been riding a bunch of street, what has been the motivation behind that?

I guess it was just something that I really didnt ride much and just started playing around with skatepark street sections! I find it alot of fun going out and trying to find something cool to ride but yeah, I do love riding skateparks.

Tell us something about yourself people probably don’t know…

My family has a sweet beach house on a island haha!

You went to the states last year to ride, what was your best memory from that trip?

Probably a road trip to Orlando, Florida I did with two friends, Brandon Cristie and Josh Perry! Just was a real fun trip got to ride a fair bit and got a sweet hook up into Disney World which was amazing!

Any plans to travel overseas again this year?

I’m heading off to China for the Asian X Games at the end of May then back over to America for a few months! It’s coming up soon so getting pretty excited!

The barn…

Jonny Devine sent us over this rad edit from a bunch of sessions the boys have had in his private barn set-up this past winter over in the UK. Things like this get me motivated for the winter months ahead.

Tell us something about yourself people probably don’t know…

I dont know, I hate spiders!

It tends to rain a lot over there? How do you survive the winter months?

haha I only just manage! Fortunately there are alot of indoor skateparks within an hour from were I live and I have built some ramps in my grandads barn! Hopefully there wil be an edit from there soon!

What do you do for a job?

I’m a bike mechanic at Leisure Lakes Bikes but will hopefully soon be an arborist!

You have an interview coming up in RideUk soon, I bet you are stoked to see how it comes out, what was it like shooting for that?

Yeah I’m quite nervous to see how it comes out should be funny! shooting for it was awesome as one of my best riding companions (the world famous Northern John) shot all the pictures for it. I love shooting with John because nothing is rushed and its always really chilled it was more like just shooting some pictures in a session! and his pictures always turn out awesome!
