We made it to Portland yesterday and damn did we have some fun getting here riding some amazing parks and the first day here was also a treat! Thanks to all the locals we’ve hung out with, you’ve made it so much fun. Also an extra shout out to Paddy for the beds to sleep in and showing us The Lumberyard.
We are still heading north to Portland right now and yesterday we came up on this park in Sacramento called Granite which was seriously the most amazing park I’ve ever seen. If you have any interest in riding bowls this place would be the ultimate! 8 bowls with endless lines, chilled local riders and skaters and perfect lights. If you are ever in the area be sure to hit it up. Thanks to Cody for the help on this one.
Myself, Ryan, Tom, Jourdan and Bobbie are heading north of LA at the moment on a filming trip. So far it’s been a blast, hitting up some nice parks and spots and just sort of playing it by ear on where we are going. We will hopefully get to Portland in the next day or 2. Here are a few random shots from the trip.
So every day or 2 I have been getting sent photos from the guys in Brazil documenting their trip and I must say I am very jealous. It really does look like they are having such a good time along with the locals, just seeing how stoked everyone is in these shots makes me love BMX more and more. Go ride.
Thanks to Renan Souza for the photos.
The guys over in Brazil seem to be having a blast going off the Instagram photos they’ve been posting. That being said Chris did dislocate his shoulder on the first day which is shitty but otherwise good times are being had.
We left Woodward West yesterday after a great week in the sun putting in work for this web video. Everyone came through, even with the heat and Brandon taking it hard on the trails we had a good time. Massive thanks to all the staff at the camp along with all the riders who we hung out with.
Thanks to Alex Herzog for shooting this photos of Alex going hard at Woodward West. For more photos check out @bmxlovephotography via Instagram.
We drove up to Woodward West yesterday which went well and now we are based here for the week. Snagged this shot of Alex to start things off…
Tomorrow we set off for Woodward West again for the video shootout. We will be there for the week, if you are hitting it up that week make sure to come say hi to all the guys and grab some stickers off of us. Below is our video from last year which was an amazing week!
We are off to Woodward West again for the video shootout. We will be there week 10 from the 4th to the 10th of August. If you are hitting it up that week make sure to come say hi to all the guys and grab some stickers off of us. Below is our video from last year which was an amazing week!
We spent the day filming and riding at Woden park in Canberra, we planned to only be there for a warm up before hitting some spots but one clip led to another and before we knew it, it was freezing cold and the sun was going down. Everyone seemed to have fun though and we got some solid clips which I am stoked on!
A couple good days spent in Sydney were just had with real good weather, clips filmed and too much dice played. Here are a couple photo’s of Chris at a packed Bondi park.
We spent the day driving from Newcastle after hitting up the Wallsend park then got settled in Sydney and searched a few schools with some good results. That evening a couple of us hit up the city for a roll and Tom got an awesome clip after a couple hours of putting in work for it!
We had a pretty chilled day after the long drive the night before so a few of the guys hit up the backyard for a session and then in the evening it was onto RideOn which was a blast seeing everyone out.
We spent the day in Rockhampton hanging out at the Giant Rockhampton store and then onto the park. The weather was dialed and all the locals were well into a session with the guys. Then it was a long LONG 8 hours of crappy roads and road work back to Brisbane. Thanks to everyone that came out for the day.
Yesterday was another good day. We started out in Maryborough & hit up some local street spots which turned out well. Then made the drive to Woodgate but stopped off in Childers on the way to hit some rails.
I was really wanting to show the guys Woodgate though, one for the awesome ramp & also to see the kangaroos that are always hanging right by the ramp. The local wildlife did not let us down & both Jourdan & Brandon got to see their first ever kangaroos. Some good riding went down from Chris as well with some solid stuff going down in the last specks of day light.
Today we are in Gladstone & will be at M1 Cycles at 11am then the park in town at midday. Come & say g’day !!
Yo yo !!
I guess today was technically the first day of the Follow the Lines Tour with everyone. We were up at the crack of dawn to start the drive north. We hooked up with the locals at Wilcox Bike shop in Maryborough and then after a few delays we hit up the local trails. To be honest I wasn’t expecting too much but as soon as we got into the bushes all of our jaws dropped, the place was a materpiece! The locals put in serious work for these jumps to look so damn good and everyone got involved and a real solid session was had! Thanks again to Wilcox Bikes and all the crew that came out, along with all the trails heads for there amazing work and for letting us enjoy the fruits of their labor.
