A Crazy Story From The Road – by Louis Bolter

It was a Friday. We drove about four hours from Zurich that morning. The day before we rode that concrete pump track crossed with Gorge rd type thing, and also the amazing bowl across the road from it. Chester, Adam, Craig and myself. After camping in the rain next to a lake the previous night it was good to catch up with Steph.

Cameron Craven’s TerribleOne

Cameron Craven is a Mid School BMXer from New Plymouth. Over recent years he has been collecting and rebuilding some iconic bikes from the early 2000’s.

New Sheldon Skatepark Christchurch

Sheldon Park in Belfast Christchurch is getting a new bowl with construction well underway. I don’t know much about the park other than its built by the same crew as Greymouth & Reefton, so you know the build quality will be good and by looking at the photos above should be a bit of fun.

American Travels With Joe Simpson

American Travels With Joe Simpson

BMX together with travel, I like to think has always been an important part of this blog. BMX is a passport to take you anywhere. So when I see riders from our country at the bottom of the world making moves internationally, using the advantages and privileges of BMX travel, I can say for certain that I get stoked.

Olly Denford – The Black & White Files

Olly Denford – The Black & White Files

I shot this photo of Olly Denford somewhere in Auckland’s North Shore a few years back.

It has always been a favourite of mine so I’m stoked to share it,
