Fairfield Session

Daniel Brind sent in this video he filmed and edited of Dylan Radford, Chris "Rabbit" Barton, Dom Clark and Jason Watts riding Fairfield. My net is fucked so I've only seen the first few seconds but I like the song so I'm putting it up.

Richo Web Vid

Clint sent this video of Richo shredding Beenleigh just before his knee operation. He's off his bike for around 8 months now. Get well soon mate! Click here to check it out (right click to save ;) )

PS. Colony is auctioning off Nick's ride to help pay for Nick's medical bills. So keep an eye out for that.

Virtual Paintjob

Hey guys, not much to post. The core series went down on Saturday at Deagon and was a good day. Nick Cooper won with Alex Hiam taking a well deserved second and Macca taking third. Keep an eye out for the video soon.

Strictly have a cool little tool which lets you pick and choose colours on your bike. I remember making my own version of this in Powerpoint back in the day when I went through a bike painting phase. Check it if you're thinking about what colours to run or your just bored.

2 Days with Josh Mannion

Jaimee Proietti sent me the link to his youtube channel. It's of a bunch of guys who go by the name of Civil BMX who seem to be having fun shredding the streets of Brisbane. Maybe the next generation Drainkids? Anyway I'm really stoked on this video of Josh Mannion, who I've never heard of but is one of the most well rounded riders I've seen in a while.

David Girsch Section

G'day guys. Back in Brissie from my holiday and also back to reality. This video waiting in my inbox definitely made it worth it though. 16 year old David Girsch from Cairns (who I think is the guy who did the 3 whip hop a while back?) sent in this awesome section of himself. I was really enjoying the vid and then the music got a bit harder and the video got gnarlier. Check it out.



Edit: Apparently the section I had up was an unfinished section from a North Queenland Scene DVD called Adaptions. Allan Hardy, who made the video was nice enough to let me keep it up and even sent in the finished version. Cheers Allan. Check out the Adaptions website here or the download the trailer here.

Todd Edenborough Web Edit


Awesome little web edit of Todd Edenborough for 9 Dragons filmed and edited by Michael Harris. Kids only 15 years old, makes me feel like a grandpa. Give it a squiz.

PS. I'm off to the Whitsundays for a week so Stew will be looking after the site for me while I'm gone. It's a hard life.

Clash for Cash



Shaun Jarvis from West Oz sent me the flyer for this event thats going down called "Clash for Cash" (why does that sound familiar?). It sounds like a really good idea with riders having to compete against each other in teams with such categories as best train from team, most choreographed run from team and team with most street cred. Haha. Sounds like it will be a good day. Click the flyer to see it bigger.
