Stretton Archives - Page 5 of 5 - Colony BMX


Tom has a bunch of clips in this Mad Mondays edit which also features Mitch Wood who is one half of LUX.




On my way down to Melbourne for this weekends Ausbike trade show & the King of the Jibs 2 & dropped into Canberra yesterday to check out the new park at Belconnen. Met up with Zac & Tom with the Afray guys. Wow, so much stuff there in one park. Worth the drive down for sure. The Canberra locals are lucky to have such a different park to ride.

Tom Stretton – Ten Clips

After working hard on filming for the Colony DVD, we wanted to play around with a web edit series that was a bit more relaxed, so the deal is…. The rider picks out a spot or park they enjoy riding and then they film ten clips at that spot. No pressure, just keep it fun and do the things they enjoy doing.

This is Tom’s local park so I knew this would be the place we would hit up for his Ten Clips. To mix it up and to work in with Tom’s work schedule, we got out the generator and filmed it at night whilst the local kids lurked in the background.

We moved the generator set-up around to each part of the park to film each clip which worked well.

Weekend in Newcastle…

Zac Miner, Alex Hiam, Tom Stretton, Brock Olive & myself headed down to Newcastle on the weekend to ride & to attend a DVD premiere hosted by the guys at Drift Bikes. A huge thanks to everyone at Drift. On the way down we also hit up the new park in Nimbin which was a blast. Get yourself there sometime soon if you wanna ride a great snake run & park.

A huge thanks to Adam Ingles & all the Newcastle locals that showed us a great time. A special thanks also go to Matt & his boys for letting us ride his backyard ramps. Thanks for the Jack’s too, good times !!

Tom Stretton interview…

The second instalment in our series of interviews in conjunction with TCU belongs to Tom Stretton. Tom has one of my personal favourite parts in the DVD & for good reason. No one rides like Tom, I mean no one. Check out what he has to say about his experiences filming for the DVD.

Filmed & edited by Stewart Munro. Once again all riding footage used is B roll & not in the finished product.

Yo yo !!

Moving on up… T Strett

I am very proud to announce that from today, Tom Stretton has earned himself a spot on the pro team with his efforts on the DVD & generally just being a kick ass guy. Thanks for all your work mate, it’s a pleasure to have you on the team & you’re such an important part of Colony.

Yo to !!
