Alex Hiam update

Yo Guys !

During A road trip to Sanfran with Chris Bracemonte, Trent McD, Wolfgang and Aaron I unfortunately Fractured my Ankle and have to be in a cast for 4 weeks. I didn’t roll it it was just a strange angle that got it .

I had to cut my USA trip short and return home early to heal up .. The Australian Health system rocks.. So lucky to be back and being looked after my The Public Health system and finally Healing up …. I am eating super super Healthy I have even Gone Vegetarian for the next 2 weeks to heal my bones quicker. The average Calorie intake is 2500 and I’m eating 6000 calories and day to speed things up. I have been researching a lot using this time to Build my Health up.

It was My 21st Birthday flying home, So I had a nice Lunch with all my USA friends then when I arrived in AUS I had another party to celebrate with all my friends back home.

I should be walking in Two weeks! So until then I’m just kicking back, spending some time doing all the sorts of arts I enjoy, Like drawing, painting, photography and filming Landscapes. I have some stuff in the works on my time of so expect some sort of Non BMX media up from me soon.

Thanks for all the Support on and off my bike. I am so motivated to ride again and can’t stop thinking about Riding my bike.





Happy 21st birthday Alex Hiam

Today marks Alex‘s 21st birthday. I’ve known Alex for 8 or 9 years now and in that time watched him progress not only as a rider but also as a person. It’s been a great ride so far Alex and I look forward to many more years.

Below we have an edit we did with Alex when he was just 13 along with his most recent from earlier this year.

Alex Hiam update

Hope everything’s well, my phone recently got hacked so I lost everything on my phone including all my photos and vids from my recent travels to England and US open etc!!! I only have my last week worth of stuff on it now.

I have been good, a bunch of riding, have been non stop since US open finals day we left that night to go straight to another contest at Woodward. Last week I was lucky enough to be apart of Mongoose Jam Video contest held at Woodward West. 5 teams of 3 riders and 1 filmer, we had 4-5 days to film a 3 minute team video. Kevin Peraza chose me to be apart of his team along with Broc Raiford and Doeby the filmer. It was Such a awesome vibe and a great contest. Here’s what we got….

We ended up placing 3rd, the video was judged by Van Homan. So stoked to be apart of these events during my time here.

Right now we just started a Colony/ division Roadtrip from LA to SANFRAN and back for 10 days, hitting a bunch of spots and parks. Can not wait super good dudes and weather should be a good time for sure. I’ll have all photos in my next update.

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.

Alex Hiam update

Yo guys ! It’s been another crazy 2 months… I have been riding and Filming non stop with my buddies. I have had a couple of friends stay at my house to film and ride so I have been really productive lately.

Whilst filming for my new project I shot some more photos with a local Photographer Henry Harbeck to release when the Edit goes online. Most Likey a 4-5 minute video Exclusive to along with a photo gallery. It is all finished Just getting it Edited up now.

Towards the End of March I flew to Sydney for a week to see Rapper Kendrick Lamar play and Film more clips with my friend Ben Norris for my new Video .. Was a super fun week. it was my Third time in Sydney This year !!

@BakosPhoto from ENDLESS MAG was in Brisbane from UK so i met up with him and shot a couple of pictures while he was in town.

At the start of April I flew to Melbourne for a week For a FOX Athlete camp. Fox flew all the Fox athletes from all sports together and we filmed and shot photos for the new Range. I got to go wake Boarding and Down hill Biking which was sweet. The point was to catch up with the rest of the FOX family,athletes and Staff, and educate us on FOX’s direction and vision for the future. Super excited to be apart of it all…

After I got home, Mid March I had my friend 15 year old friend Ben stay at mine for a week to finish filming for my next edit. We rode the streets and skateparks all day everyday was super productive and fun to show the homie around Brisbane. Its amazing how Young and smart & talented he is. We also Filmed a Video at the indoor skatepark at The Village which be online this week. Was a treat to have some creative young vibes around . Stoked on the Creative stuff we filmed. Ben also came down to film the Jam I held at a local skatepark in brisbane .. The video will be online soon.

16 april Myself and my best friend Boyd Hilder Held another Jam at Moray field skatepark. We called it Why Not Again ( first one was WHY NOT JAM ) after how great our first Jam was last month the council got in contact with us and offered to support us to do more. So we organised it as soon as we could, Got in Contact with all our awesome sponsors and local riders n got the word out. There was over 100+ riders and more than the first jam … It was such a awesome day, We are both learning a lot from holding these jams. Hyped to be able to get every one together, and have such a positive Effect on the scene in Australia. Thanks to everyone that supports BMX.

After the Jam I flew to Canberra ACT to attend in Australias biggest BMX event ” Back Bone BMX ACT JAM ” Last year I couldn’t make it because I ruptured My spleen….. This year I was stoked to make it there.
Unfortunately I rolled my ankle the day before the event. It sucks But I was lucky I was still there, surrounded around so many awesome humans…. Such a wicked weekend It makes so Grateful to be apart of a rad sport.

Now I’m Back home in Brisbane for the next month. I am feeling really good. Super Sore from constant 3 months filming and travelling, But it’s all so worth it. Im super Proud of what I have accomplished and Motivated to save some money to travel in a couple of months . I’m going to be focusing on my health and saving some travel money the next month Before I leave for USA – ENGLAND – CHINA for the rest of the year.
