DISHONOUR CLOTHING.



Ugzine's James Wade has just sent me some links to his

As for the DVD, my memory is a bit hazy for some reason... but I do remember that i had to pick my jaw up off the floor on more than one occasion. Big thanks to everyone who came and to Stowaway and Triplesix for supplying some giveaways.



Stay tuned for a review of the DVD. Definatley get your hands on a copy, it'll be worth every cent.

Something Simple.



To me bmx will always be bmx, but sometimes we all find ourselves lacking the energy or influences to pick up that bike and just pedal.
Sometimes I come across artwork, photos, videos, interviews or news about something bmx related that's rad, that gets me super psyched on just having the privilege of owning a bike and the endless possibilities a thing as simple as a bike can bring to anyone.
This photo does that for me.
Dig it or not.

Video Comp Update

I was recently made aware of similarities between our video comp and an idea for a video comp on the Ugzine Forums. So I decided to change the rules a little bit.
Every video must now consist entirely of doubles lines. For an example of some really creative and entertaining doubles lines watch the video below.



Also DK King of Dirt is on tomorrow if you're interested in watching boys get dirty and sweaty

diversitybmx video comp!



Heres the deal suckas. Last Chapter have hooked me up with some shirts to give away and I've decided to hold a video competition. The video competition is gonna be for the best joint section. Heres the rules:

Each section must contain no less than two(2) riders and no more than two(2) riders both with a similar amount of footage.

Each section must contain at least four(4) doubles lines (both riders doing tricks in the same clip)

Each section must be longer than 90 seconds.

Only Australians can enter.

Videos will be judged on the level of riding, creativity, filming and of course, diversity.

Videos must be on Youtube and the url must be emailed to diversitybmx@gmail.com before 12am, Monday 15th of October. That means you've only got two weeks.


The top 3 entries will be featured on the site and the final winner will be voted by you.

Get filming.

Be sure to check it out, no matter which side of the Tasman you reside.
