Fresno Jam

So we’ve just got back from our Fresno trip which was a blast and I can’t thank the local crew enough for making it a blast. The jam at the Fresno park exceeded my expectations so thanks to all the riders that came out, Ryan and Andre’s for holding it down on the day along with cooking up a feed for everyone. Also to Chris Bracamonte for organising it and being on the MIC all day. Here are a few images from the day…

#oldmentrip in New Zealand

I just got back from the second #oldmentrip over in New Zealand with some good long term mates from over there. Kenny Raggett also came along which was awesome. We travelled around a fair chunk of the South Island & had a blast on & off the bikes. We rode so much awesome stuff, explored, & basically enjoyed life on the road. Looking forward to the next one already. Check out some of my pics taken a long the way. Thanks to Dave, Phil, Jonno, Mario, Bruce & Kenny for an awesome week. Good times !! – Millar.

Hot Springs

Polly and I landed in California yesterday with the plan of making the most of everyday we are here. So we met up with Nathan and his good friend Matt Cordova along with Jourdan and we trekked down to the Palm Springs area, this place has some fun parks which we spent the entire day hitting up and enjoying the nice weather.

Here are a few shots from the day…

Zac Miner in Melbourne

Over the weekend Zac came down to Melbourne for 3 days to film for his next video project and although we had some security guard problems we came out on top at the end of the 3 days. Zac really produced some serious clips and put in work doing so. Here are a few shots from the days without giving away too much…

The vent has always been an issue for this wall ride but Zac locked and loaded and roasted straight past it.

This was insane, great way to finish off the day.

I think Zac was just happy to be alive after this clip.

We’d been kicked out of this spot on Zac’s last filming trip to Melbourne but fortunately luck was on our side this day.

Game changer.

2 days in a row with no luck thanks to security being super tight now days at this place.

Adelaide trails jam

Myself, Polly and Dean drove over to Adelaide for a few days to film and hit up the trails jam. The day was real fun and great to see so many good people, quick shot of Dean from the trails. Shoutout to LBB and all the crew that made the day work and dig at the trails.

Jack Kelly in Adelaide

Last week I headed to Adelaide to ride and film with Troy Charlesworth, Brock Olive & Mike Vockenson for an Australia mixtape Troy is working on and also to film with Vocko for Crispy Stream. Adelaide has an abundance of flat rails and spots in general which is awesome, and one of the best BMX scenes in Australia. Thanks to Rhys Gogel for letting us stay at his place and driving us around all over Adelaide & thanks to Dave Rubinich for the pictures.

D.I.Y in Melbourne video

I knew of a few drain spots that already existed here in Melbourne so I spent some time fixing up a few along with creating some new spots and then invited some of the guys to come down, stay at my place and ride the spots for 3 days. We had to do this during the middle of summer so that we didn’t get washed away and to be able to build at the spots. This all worked well besides the temperatures going above 40 every day we were out but everyone made it work and had a blast doing so. Here is the video (and photos) from the project, hopefully we get to do another one next summer.

California update

Mike and Justin were out with us this week. Things started out good until Mike tried an insane gap out to short rail and took it hard, like real hard. His wrist is beat up and hasn’t been able to ride. Justin has been killing it on the ledge game which has been a treat to film and watch. Jack has been going hard on the rail game and we also filmed a plaza video with Zach from Vital so keep an eye out for that soon.

Quick trip

Marnold and I just got back from a quick 2 day trip up in north Victoria in searched for fresh spots. We came up on a few good things so it was worth the trip. Thanks to our buddy Tenna for the accommodation and Daniel Johnson for slinging us this first shot.

Glennie went to Cairns & back…

Our Australian warehouse manager, Glen McLaughlin, recently took a week off & decided to road trip solo up to Cairns & back. He filmed a bunch of stuff along the way in the chilled fashion of Glen. The cool thing is this was all self filmed, he did some tech tricks to get those panning shots with no one moving the camera. A mixture of Canon 7D & iPhone footage, it turned out a treat showing the relaxed week he had away.

Just goes to show everyone that works at Colony rides & has done so for more than 20 years. Now, it must be Keith Treanor’s turn to do a video hey?

Dane’s Jam

A few of us headed to the Dane Searls trails jam in Canberra yesterday. It was a dialed session with everyone getting crazy on the jumps. A few people came un stuck including Bayzand but I think all that did would still be stoked that they were apart of the day. I know Luke Parker was doing these cannonball’s.
