Bike checks!

Whilst we were in LA a few weeks ago, we hooked up with Fat Tony and he was down with doing some bike checks. Visit Ride to see the bikes from myself, Tom Stretton, Clint Millar, Mick Bayzand and Broc Raiford.

Check back soon for how you can win Clint’s bike featured in these checks !!

US trip coming to an end…

Our US trip is now coming to an end with Cooper, Mick & myself going home today. Broc also left this morning for home. Zac & Tom are heading over to Greenville to hang with Ryan for a week or so.

It’s been a great trip except for my broken ankle. Thanks to everyone that showed us around & rode with us. Special thanks to Ryan Navazio for looking after us while in LA, thanks mate.

Yo yo !!


We have two more days before most of us fly back home. Clint is out of hospital as well so that’s good news. We paid a visit to Hollywood and while we were in the area we cruised down the strip and did the tourist thing for a minute…

Another day.

Clint was fortunate enough to have his operation last night and things went as well as they could so that’s good news.

The rest of us went out today and rode the best ditch I have ever ridden in my life. Fun was had, alot of water was drunk and clips were filmed! The photo below is from a spot we hit yesterday which is one of those million in one spots (we have hit a few of them this week) the tree roots have lifted this sidewalk up enough to have a good pop for riders to shred it. Tom gets his game on…

Millar is down.

After an awesome day out riding, literally last spot of the evening we were riding Clint unfortunately landed wrong on an up rail to 180 which resulted in a pretty bad leg break. I can’t upload photos from the day until tomorrow so for now here is a photo from happier times for Millar at the first spot we hit out of Vegas a couple of days ago. He is having surgery tonight we hope so i will keep all posted.

Note: Anyone out there that is possibly awaiting email replies please be patient. Thanks.

Off to the USA today…

Today Mick Bayzand, Zac Miner, Cooper Brownlee, Tom Stretton & myself are off to the USA for Interbike & then a week long riding trip in & around Cali. Should be a blast. Expect reports from the road while were there.

Yo yo !!

Just for fun…

While Alex & I were staying at Ryan’s house a couple weeks back we put together this fun little edit riding Ryan’s new backyard mini ramp. It was crazy hot this day & so humid but was great fun doing it. I haven’t sweated that much in ages !! We even did a bunch of synchro stuff just for fun. Enjoy.

Yo yo !!

Went sky diving today…

Today I went sky diving for my 36th birthday. It was amazing !! Below is the video they produced as part of the package. It was such an awesome experience & I would recommend to anyone to go out & do it for sure. Thanks to my family for the awesome gift !!

At Woodward now…

Alex, Ryan & myself arrived at Woodward yesterday. We meet up with Broc Raiford here as well & rode all day. It was amazing. I haven’t been here since 1998 & the place has changed so much since then. So much stuff to ride that I don’t think we will even get to ride it all during our 4 day stay. Thanks to the friendly staff at Woodward for hooking us up, appreciated.

USA trip update…

Today we went riding in the crazy 100 degree (38 degrees celsius) here. We went to Raleigh today to do a little street jibbing in the crazy heat. Was a fun day for sure. Below are some photos taken by Colin Mackay – one during the drive home today & the other while chilling at Ryan’s place yesterday.

2020 Print Advert.

Below is our double page advert in the current issue of 2020. Bit of a story behind this one as Clint has talked about wanting to do it this rail for years, 10 years to be exact. Last time I was in Brisbane we went down to this rail to suss it out, we got there too late in the evening to do it but Millar called it out so the next day we went there and he fired it out first go!


A bit of 2008 footage…

Here is a little edit that Glen McGlaughlin (Colony warehouse manager) made up from some almost lost footage from back in 2008. Check it.

One for the Ringwood Locals…

Here is one just for the Ringwood Locals !! Shot in France at an awesome plaza that we dropped by to ride.


Barcelona Day One.

We flew into Barcelona this morning after a very very long flight. We were all really tired but we went out and explored and had a ball riding around. Tomorrow we should be back on the normal sleep patterns, more updates to come…



Off to Barcelona…

Cooper, Liam, Mick, Zac, Marnold & myself are off to Barcelona today to ride for ten days. Stewart Munro is also coming along to film all the action. We will also be doing a 5 day trip through the south of France with our boys from Unleaded. Hit the guys up at Unleaded for more info on the France trip.

Expect some updates whilst on the trip. Can’t wait to session iconic spots like this below & find our own gems along the way.

New team pages…

Everyone worked hard to get some new photos for their team pages along with new Q&A’s. I am stoked on how they came up! Check them here, have a read to learn a bit more about the team. Extra thanks go out to the photographers from around the world that helped out with team riders photos. The photo below is of Liam Fahy-Hampton from a fairly recent trip from Brisbane down to Melbourne, it’s amazing what you will find in small towns.


Interview over on ugzine…

James Wade from ugzine was cool enough to approach me about doing an interview for his site. Done over a couple of weeks you can check it out by clicking here now. Thanks for hooking it up James… appreciated. James also runs Dishonour Clothing & you can check it out by clicking here now.

Independence day…

Recently we had the entire Australian team in Brisbane for some celebrations of the fact Colony became independent one year ago. We had a chilled jam at a street location with a bunch of pizzas & more than enough drinks for everyone, good times for sure. Here are a few pics from the day & DIG magazine did this interview up with myself on what has been happening the last 12 months & what lays ahead. Featured over on the DIG site now.

Liam Fahy-Hampton.

Clint, you must be stoked to have 100% control of Colony now?
Yeah it’s been a huge undertaking but something that needed to be done. I feel the brand is in a much better place now than just over 12 months ago. I now have total control with the direction of the company in all aspects. I could not be happier on where were headed.

Most satisfying accomplishment since the change?
Just knowing that the growth we have experienced has been because of the hard work I have put in along with the team & my staff members. Thanks guys!

What else are you looking forward to for the year to come?
I am really looking forward to sending the team around the world to ride. I will also get out there on the bike myself again which is something I have missed the last few years.

What else has changed with the brand since you took 100% control?
We have had a total brand re-launch with a new logo & look. Cooper Brownlee has done an amazing job with this & I feel it really looks so much better than before. Our product range has also grown & we have plenty in the works for 2010 & beyond. Another big change has also been that Colony now has two full time employees beside myself. It is so good to be able to share the work load now. Maybe I will even have a life a again outside of working on Colony?

Since the change, what has been the response with shops?
Our dealers across the world & especially here in Australia, have been very favourable with their comments & feedback. Colony is now the strongest BMX brand sold here in Australia which is amazing to know, in a saturated sea of international brands.

Until recently you were doing all the warehouse work yourself, it must be a good feeling packing orders for stores and seeing your products being sent out all over the country and world?
Yeah that was one of the most amazing things to be honest, I really enjoyed it. Just seeing the products I designed being sent out everywhere & in such demand is really satisfying.

Defero online

First online issue of Defero, this one features the recent Flem Banks Jam. Zac, Marnold, Mick, Clint and myself all have footage in this one. Such a great day!

Toormina comp…

Alex Hiam, Nick Richardson, Tom Stretton & myself all went down to Shane Conlon’s comp at his local on the weekend & it was a really fun time. Shane organised the event to raise awareness of the fact that Coffs Harbour needs it’s own ramp park, as it is well behind other regions in the area.

Alex ended up killing it & got 2nd place & $500 for his efforts while Shane ended up winning, showing he really is unbeatable on his home turf. A big shout out must go to Shane for all his efforts in organising the weekend.

We also rode a local full pipe which was a bit of fun & got up to plenty of party antics during the night. Good times in general.


Yo yo !!

Flem Banks…

Myself, Mick Bayzand, Zac Miner, Marnold & Liam Fahy-Hampton (although injured) will be there flying the flag for Colony. Should be a fun day. See you there !!


Yo yo !!

The other new bike…

Here is my other new bike I made up recently. Something a little different for me with no pegs, gyro or front brakes. Just to mix things up a little. Should keep things fresh. Matt Black this time with Laser Green highlights.


Yo yo !!

My new bikes…

I recently put together two new bikes & this is one of them. I am really stoked on how this one turned out. Silver Storm frame, forks, bars & cranks with Dark Blue parts all round. I am looking forward to riding this baby. I will post photos of the my other bike in the next day or two, stay tuned.


Yo yo !!

World travellers…

Thought I would let you all know of some of the travel plans the team have going on now or very soon…

Tim Wood was in Singapore last weekend for some demos at a brand new concrete park there, it was amazing park according to Tim. He took a bit of a spill on the vert bowl there but is OK.

Nick Richardson is off to the USA for 2 months to stay at Ryan’s house in Greenville. Expect some good things to come from Nick while over there. Nick also recently put together a nice new 2010 Gnarkill Frame.

Zac Miner & Liam Fahy-Hampton are off to China at the end of the month for an invitational comp over there in Beijing. Should be interesting.

Shane Badman is due back to Australia soon after a few years in Europe.

Mick Bayzand is also coming home in October after 18 months in Canada. It will be good to have him back in Australia.

I am off to the US in a couple weeks for Interbike. So looking forward to the Nora Cup party once again, just not the day after.


Yo yo !!

What a weekend…

These few pics here pretty much sum up the weekend just gone up here. Zac killed the Botanical Gardens rail in the city with this over ice. Then smashed his face on a messed up gap to second stage tooth hanger on another rail. Everyone got pretty loose at Spinal Disorder. Way too much alcohol was drank over the weekend. Oh, and a little riding went down too. Good times.


Yo yo !!

Carhartt store – Sydney

On my way back from Melbourne last week I dropped into Sydney for a few days & hit up the Carhartt store there. I love going there… so much good stuff & Andrew always hooks me up big time. Thanks again to the guys at Carhartt for the hook up.


Yo yo !!

A little news…

On Tuesday the 11th of August, my lovely girlfriend Niki & I tied the knot & are now married !! It was a very exclusive event with just immediate family present. A wonderful day was had by all & exactly what we wanted.

We will have a large party later on this year to celebrate. Words can’t describe our good it feels to be able to call Niki my wife.
