Weekend trip away

On the weekend Alex Hiam, Mark Mathews-Frederick & myself travelled up north to Maryborough on a little roadtrip.

First we dropped into Gympie to stretch our legs & rode the park they have there. Not much to ride but was still a fun time. After there we headed to Woodgate as I heard about a concrete mini ramp there. This thing is amazing. So smooth & really good transitions. There were even a bunch of kangaroos hanging out in the field by the ramp. So Aussie.

That night we stayed in Maryborough with all the crew from Brisbane & the Gold Coast that were up for the trails jam the next day. It was a fun night of talking smack & having a few drinks.

The next day was all about the trails. These things are so much fun & a huge shout must go to the locals up there for their amazing efforts on these over the years. I didn’t get any pics of the trails but I am sure some will pop up somewhere soon.

On the way home we dropped in for a quick swim at a local river & I mean a really quick swim. The water was damn freezing !! After our swim we dropped into Nambour to ride the park there. Good times. Nambour is actually has the very first ramp I ever rode way back in 1988.

Getting away from the usual is always a good time & if you’re bored of your local, go get some mates, get in the car & go on a little road trip. You wont regret it.

Dirty Drains Jam

Today Richo, Alex, Cooper Brownlee & myself went to the Dirty Drains Jam in Brisbane. It was a really good turn out & a good vibe as well. I got way too much sun but still had fun none the less. Here is a pic of Richo in the long jump comp that went down. It was a great day & a everyone had a good time. It was good to see everyone having a good time in one place.

Thanks for the interview & kind words at the end Shoe-G. I so wanna go back to Japan again. Last time I was there it was amazing & Shoe-G took me to the best Sushi ever while we shared a bottle of Jack together. Good times… you rule mate.

Blast from the past…

Check this out from 1991, top left is myself while top right is Ryan Guettler.

This was at the FlatAmp Comp Series held at Nunawading & featured in the August/September issue of BMX National. I ended up winning 16 years flatland & Masters flatland while getting 3rd in 16 years ramp while Ryan won the 14 & under ramp class at a mere age of 8 years old.

Thanks to Matt Holmes from 2020 BMX magazine for the bringing back the cool memories that seem so long ago.

Cali trip video

After interbike this year Ryan Guettler, Steve Woodward & myself did a little riding around Southern California for a few days. It was a good relaxed time riding our bikes & having fun. Here is a little video I made up from what footage we captured, nothing crazy but good times for sure. If you like you can click here for the higher quality quicktime file or watch it below. Enjoy.

Wanna learn nosepicks?

I did this how-to for Ride BMX on Saturday while out at Woodward West.

Yo yo !!

Woodward West

Ryan had to leave the trip early for an LG comp elsewhere in the US. So Josh Boatright & I arrived at Woodward West today & I felt like a little kid again. This place is a ramp mecca beyond what I could ever have imagined. It’s totally ridiculous. Check some of the pics below for proof.

Tomorrow, weather permitting, we will go and check out Nasty’s trail jam nearby. Should be good to see.

In San Diego now…

Myself, Guettler & Ryan’s friend Josh Boatright, arrived into San Diego last night & meet up with Steve Woodward & his mates. We had a bit of a night out on the town & witnessed the Woodward show in full effect. The man is an animal on & off the bike, it was a fun night. Today we are gonna go ride the Mission Valley park we have all seen so much of in videos & magazines. Should be a blast.

Old school pic…

I was looking through some old photos & came across this beauty of a pic. It’s features from left to right, Michael Canfield (one of the guys that introduced me to riding back in 1988), myself, Ryan Guettler (at around 8 years old) & Tim Wood. We had our own show team called, Wheels Entertainment & we did shows in & around Brisbane. This pic would have been taken around 1992. Pretty funny stuff.

Weekend in Melbourne

I just got back from my weekend in Melbourne & I am so sore. Had a great time riding & haven’t ridden that much in a while. First we hit up the opening of Rampfest & all I can say is that place is amazing.

The next day we hit up a the new Knox park as well as a local school & the old Knox park, good times. Myself, John B, Pete Radivo, Luke Barling, Josh Mete met up with the Focalpoint crew & good times were had by all.

We hit up Flemington banks on Sunday which is always a treat. That new little ghetto quarter there is amazing. Exactly my kind of stuff to ride.

A big shout out goes to John B & the Radivo family for looking after me. Thanks go to John B & Cooper Brownlee for the pics. I am already looking forward to coming down again soon.

Finally in Canberra

After 3 days of driving while taking it easy, myself & Richo are finally in Canberra. Along the way we dropped into the 2020BMX magazine offices & Hell On Wheels. Both were cool to finally check out. It’s cool to see where all the magic for the mag happens & the shop is awesome too.

There was really bad weather the whole way down from Brisbane but as soon as we arrived into Canberra it cleared up. Perfect. We picked up both Mick Bayzand & Liam Fahy-Hampton from the airport & will be heading to check out Backbone BMX in the morning. Backbone is the centre of the BMX scene in Canberra & from what I’ve heard is one of the coolest BMX shops in Australia. Can’t wait to check it out. Then we’re hitting the streets. Yeah yeah !! Check back in the next days for news from our exploits here.

Random shots…

I went out for a bit of an unexpected rail mission the other day with John Buultjens from Forgotten Bikes & Alex Hiam our flow team rider & got these quick shots. Nothing crazy but I was pretty stoked I did these first try.

Another new ride…

Well, since it seems to be the week of making up new bikes, here is another very new set up… courtesy of Cooper Brownlee & Scott Greentree of Focalpoint Check over on the Focalpoint site for a better quality image of my new bike.

Something very different for me that’s for certain… perhaps even some kind of mid-life crisis? Either way… it’s going to be a challenge that I welcome.
