Alex Hiam update

Hey Guys,

little update from the last month,

As soon as I got back from the Summer of Colony trip I held my own Jam called the “Why Not Jam” at a Local park in Brisbane, Kuraby Skatepark on the 23rd of January.It was the best day, thanks to All my sponsors that supplied prizes and giveaways & the local BMX stores. It was a great turn out, Way more riders than we imagined. There was 100+ riders that showed up to ride and support the cause. We did trophies for Highest Jump, Longest Jump & Rider of the day, There will be a video dropping from the day in the next week.

Straight after that I went on a road trip in my own car back to Sydney with two really good friends Boyd & Dave. Dave is from America and is staying at mine for two months. He is a really good filmer and we stacked some footage I’m really stoked on . Definitely the best stuff I have filmed so we’re gonna take our time on this project and make it a real banger. It should be done in next couple of months.

Our road trip went for a 12 days, We camped all along the coast down to Sydney, Stayed in the city for a week then camped along the way home. Was awesome to do my own trip for once, I learnt a lot !

The next month I will be working at The Village indoor Skatepark saving for my travels this year, riding everyday and continuing to film for my section with Dave. He is staying at my house for another month. I have planned to go & film in China for a month with Dave in October. And spend a couple months in USA.. So it’s all very exciting for me.

Hey guys!!

After how much fun I had being on the road for Summer of Colony roadtrip two weeks ago I decided to go again myself in my own car. I have Boyd Hilder and Dave Pendleton with me filming. It’s been great we are currently in Sydney now and are roadtrippin back to Brisbane in a couple of days. We camped along the way but are now staying at Lewis Mills house in Sydney. We have been hitting lots of spots and skateparks here , the city is crazy!!!

Here’s some pics so far..




Summer of Colony trip video

We spent 9 days on the road around Brisbane then down the coast to Canberra hitting up a bunch of parks and anything else we could come up on. We hosted 10 jams in 9 days at local parks along the way and had a blast riding with everyone. Here’s the video from the trip and you can view a pretty large photo gallery over on the Focalpoint website.

Thanks to Chris Bracamonte for helping out with filming on this.

This is going to be a lot of fun.

A bunch of the crew will be heading out on the road for a couple weeks between Queensland and Canberra with a bunch of stops along the way for sessions with the locals and anyone keen to trip it out.

Yo !

Last week I flew to Melbourne for two Events going down in the same week that I wanted to be apart of. So I figured why not , I love Melbourne it’s such a amazing city , any reason to be there is good ! I was staying at Cooper Brownlees house , the Filmer for Colony BMX. We ended up filming a lot with our spare time and had a really productive week. I will have a new clip from my week in Melbourne dropping sometime in the next 2 weeks.

At the start of the week was Bendigo Bmx Jam that was for a Connections BMX shop . It was a awesome turn out and good to meet all the homies and ride with everyone. Then at the end of my stay there was another BMX jam that was a Street ride through the city. good to see so many Riders apart of it. I attached some photos from my week in Melbourne.

On the January 7th of Jan I go on a big roadtrip with some of the team for a week. It’s a shop Tour from Brisbane to Sydney to Canberra stopping at all main skateparks that Colony will be having big Jams at. And filming and shooting pics along the way and promoting my Signature frame , bars, forks & seat.

Mid Jan when I arrive home and My homie Dave from America is coming to stay at my house to film a new edit from Jan – Febuary. I filmed a lot with him when I was in USA this year and stoked to have him coming out and to be able to show him our amazing country. Gonna be good times. We have planned our own little road trip from Feb 1 – 12th. we are taking a week to drive down to SYD , Stopping at all the beaches etc. then spending 4 days in Sydney… Then finishing it off at a concert we all booked tickets for. I will be taking my little car and we will be camping the whole way there, Filming our own Web video.

Super Excited..

Then March I’m off to France to compete in Fise World coatest.

Alex Hiam update

Hey guys,

I just got home from my 3 months in the USA. It feels so good to be home, I am here in Brisbane for the next 3 months enjoying the summer, taking some time off the next week or two, to rest my bruised heel and swollen elbows. The constant travelling and filming in America took it’s toll… what a great feeling to have some downtime for the next couple of days.

The next 6 weeks I will be filming a promo Video for a My signature frame, bars, forks & seat the “sweetooth” with Colony BMX & Troy Charsleworth. This will be online December 1st.

I’ll also be filming for the Vans DVD during the next couple of months around Australia… looking forward to the next couple of months just as much as I was before I left for America.

Here’s what went down the past 3 months in USA:

20th July: Arrived in USA. For the first month, I stayed at Ryan Guettler’s house in Costa Mesa, California. 8 weeks prior to USA, I ruptured my spleen and bled 1.5 litres internally from a dirt jump crash; I then underwent surgery and recovered enough to ride. I boarded the plane and started riding again for the first time in America.

2 weeks later I competed in the biggest contest all year for me the US OPEN inventional Bowl contest that goes down at Huntington Beach Pier, California. I got invited as an alternate Rider and I was fortunate enough to place in the contest then I made it into the Finals. I fell a couple of times in my final runs and didn’t place on podium…. I think the lack of riding in the 3 months leading up this made me not as confident or as prepared as I could’ve been. I still felt like I rode good but my fitness was not up to my usual standard and made this contest a real struggle for me. During the contest, medics on site said I had a lot of fluid still around my whole abdominal area because of the operation and work that went on. I am so stoked I got the opportunity to ride in this contest with all my favourite riders and idols. I learned so much and am already getting ready for the coming year. Here is a behind the scene video we filmed.

I also got be on Live TV on KTLA live one of LA’s biggest news station.

Straight after US open I drove to Woodward west camp with my friend Boyd Hilder to practice for the next contest coming up. We met a new friend David Pednelton whilst we were there. David was staying at Woodward for Media camp and had to film a video so we teamed up and filmed this video during our week

It was a fun week with the kids at Woodward. I also filmed a How to video.

Straight after Woodward I flew over the country to Virginia Beach to compete in the invitational Vans East Coast Contest. I was really happy on how I rode. I felt so much healthier and more confident than I was at US open. It was much easier being more prepared. I also learned as many things at US open that I could, to help me in this contest. I made the Finals and ended up placing 8th. There are some photos and video footage from this event attached.

I arrived back to home base in California and filmed some clips with Justin Kozman that week for the Vans bmx DVD. I was super stoked to be apart of the DVD.

The next week, September 7, I planned a trip with my friend Boyd Hilder to San Fran. We went for one week with our friend Dave we met at Wooward ( the filmer ). Dave is the same age as us and rode BMX also. He had a place for us to stay in San Fran and knew his way around. I got him a flight from Utah to LAX so he was able to come the whole way from LA to San Fran and back and documented the whole thing. Colony and Mankind ( our sponsors ) paid for the hire car and we covered the rest. Dave agreed to edit and make a full video in return of the flight. He knew the city really well and took us to all crazy spots. It was a super busy and amazing week.

As soon as the San Fran trip was over, I went to Las Vegas for a week for Interbike & Nora Cup. Vegas was crazy to say the least! It was good to have the week off to rest have a good rest there.

September 21 – 27th I went on a Colony road trip to Oregon stopping at all shops and skateparks & filmed for a team video that will be dropping some time soon! Portland is amazing!

Next 2 weeks I spent in Cali, surfing every morning, recovering and taking it easy. After a while I was able to ride again and filmed this video with TCU right before I flew home.

All round I had the most amazing time of my life, I got to see many cool spots that I had always seen and heard about… I will never forget this trip. It had its ups & downs, with constant struggle with swollen elbows and bruised heels, but it was definitely all worth it. I learned so much and feel so grateful to be back home now. More than ever ready for next year !!

Thanks to all the homies that helped along the way and let me stay on there couches and helped out !!!!

Thanks to Vans for all the amazing opportunities to ride these contest and travel.

Thanks to Colony for the on going support and taking me to Oregon & Vegas !

Thanks to Fox for making it possible for me to Fly to these contest and travel.

Shred The Rez video

Our very own Chris Bracamonte put together this video for RIDE BMX of the recent Shred The Rez comp/jam that went down at Pala park in California. Keith Treanor had a big hand in making this day happen so I am stoked to see it all went well. Both Victor and Alex have clips throughout..

Shred The Rez !!

Our main man Keith Treanor worked for months on his first event along with Dave Brumlow & the Shred The Rez was the end result.

It went down this weekend & here is the first of many video’s to come out from the day no doubt.

Looks like good times were had by all. Look out for clips of our own Victor Salazar & Alex Hiam in the mix. BMX = fun.
