Got an email from Dave Orme who's living in the hot end of this beautiful country. They have started up a little blog, www.darwinbmxscene.blogspot.com which is really good too see and this is the first web edit they have produced and it's not bad at all. Check it out and dont forget to go check out their blog.
Chris has been out the last 7 months due to a crook knee and has just started getting back into riding, without a doubt it looks like he hasnt lost much. Good too see you back on the bike Chris! Filmed and edited by Cooper Brownlee and Interview done by the one and only, Salad.
Heres a ridiculous edit from Calvin Kosovich out of Perth who just got picked up by The Set. Filming looked dope and the riding was legit from start to finish, definitely a much watch!
Seems like this weekends gonna be a busy one for all us Brisbanites! To start it theres a rad BMX Exhibition in the city starting on Friday night. This from LUXBMX:
"Our good friends over at Laced have been putting in work for an exhibition this weekend. Dropouts: A BMXhibition will feature tons of memorabilia from some of Brisbane’s biggest BMX enthusiasts, collectors, riders and builders alike, from the old school, mid-school and new school eras. We've been lucky enough to have a few bikes featured including a super badass custom we've built for the event.
The exhibition will kick off at 7pm on Friday night and will run both days on the weekend from 10am-5pm. Make sure you drop in!"
The guys at Hell On Wheels have been putting out some fantastic web features and this is no different, it features Tom Boorman and Dave Cragg doing some rad doubles lines at five dock and an intense crash. Hope you heal fast Tom!
Holy-LOL. If you are connected to the internet chances are you have witnessed the shitstorm thats been raging for a day or so mainly fueled by butthurt scooter riders.
Basically the deal is awesome. Any ex-scooter rider that buys a complete Colony bike in the next few weeks can send in their old scooter and in turn get over $100 in Colony product as a "Welcome to BMX" incentive. Read more about that here.
It seems that a legion of pre-pubescent, tough-talking, scooter-wielding internet warriors haven't taken the idea as light-heartidly as it was intended and are taking to Facebook and the comment section of their favourite blogs in the hope that their incessant moaning, screaming for Colony boycotts, and threats of physical harm to the Colony team (LOL) will actually achieve something.
Scooter riders take note, Colony does not have armed goons running into your homes and forcefully removing your prized scooters like some kind of scooter holocaust, they are simply offering a little extra to those who have finally taken the next step and jumped into the world of BMX.
PS. Favourite quote so far from this whole ordeal - "Wow I think bikes are gay the only differance between a bike and a scooter is the little hard plastic penis shaped seat, that goes up there but, Now that is gay Stand up like a man" This coming from a legitimate scooter company from the US run by a 25 year old dude. If you disagree with his comment please send a well-mannered email to email@example.com.
As promised, heres the edit from the monster spine roast that i did a little write up about a couple weeks ago, kind of an unfortunate song choice but nonetheless. Definitely some serious bangers from the pro dudes as well as the am guys with Brad Jenner and Josh Williams killing it. If you guys want to keep up with events such as the monster comps and a raft of others you should definitely follow the Sydney Freestyle Bmx Association Facebook page!
Was browsing the Diversity Youtube the other day and stumbled across this edit Manbeast put together of the Beerwah Jam. Must have been a couple of years ago, so I had another watch of it then realised it had 168,113 views. Couldn't believe it! That's a lot of bloody views for a video of a bunch of ratty BMX kids! Check the Diversity Youtube for plenty more old videos if you have some spare time on your hands!
