Australian Moto Grand Prix – Freestyle Now bmx stunt show video 2019

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now performed bmx stunt shows at the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix in Phillip Island in Victoria. Be sure to check out the video highlighting all of the radical experiences that we had at the Australian Moto Grand Prix and what the crowds witnessed.  This was the second time Freestyle Now had performed at the Australian Moto grand Prix and the third time at the Phillip Island venue. The first time was the 2017 Australian Moto grand Prix and the second time being the 2019 V8 Super series. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze were joined by good friends and all round radical riders Andrew Ahumada and Alec Danelutti. The first day of the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix bmx stunt shows were great, with perfect weather conditions, unfortunately it was all downhill from there with Saturday and Sunday being horrendous weather conditions. There were extremely strong winds and intermittent rain down pours which hampered our efforts to perform the bmx stunt shows. We missed out on just 2 of the scheduled 12 bmx stunt shows, as we scaled back the shows to match the weather conditions. Freestyle Now performed at two different venues at the Moto Grand Prix. The first was the main location with our jump box set up and the second location was a smaller show with the use of just a small jump ramp. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Australian Moto Grand Prix and that is what we achieved. When it comes to entertainment Freestyle Now definitely has you covered with a high entertainment value bmx stunt show. Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down. If you would like this type of great entertainment at your next event please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements. A full list of all the stunt shows that Freestyle Now has done since 1986 can be found on our past stunt show page.

Bunbury Action Sports Games 2020 – BMX scooter skateboard competition

twitterlinkedinmail

Every year competitors look forward to the Action Sports Games and this year was no different. One of the biggest scooter, skateboard and bmx skatepark competition held in Western Australia it had an awesome turn out. With a prize purse of $2000 up for grabs and $2500 worth of prizes plenty of competitors were keen.

The level of competition is forever increasing and it’s great to see younger competitors come up from the beginner into the intermediates and then start knocking on the 1st place spots in the open class. Once again the level from all the competitors was high and it was great to see some of the competitors who had been attending our coaching sessions also competing in the beginners class. There was plenty of action throughout the day but one of the most action packed was the bmx open class. Three riders were all on fire, Luke Tooze, Fabio Connetti and Jordan Minchin, all three with different riding styles and trick and skatepark lines. This one was a hard one to judge and it was not until all the points were tallied up that we got to see how close they were. With only 2 points between 3rd and 1st it was one of the most tightest competitions we have ever had. 1st went to Luke Tooze, 295 points, 2nd Fabio Connetti, 294 points and 3rd Jordan Minchin, 293 points. With 3 judges scoring over three categories and having two runs that’s a lot of numbers to add up and to get scores that close is super rad.

Other notable competitors were Rowan Cosh riding in scooter and bmx, Brax O’brien who attended the Collie coaching sessions and skated well, Kash Toft moving up to scooter open and taking 3rd, Jeremy Wilson and Tyler Gayski in the intermediate bmx class and Albie Livesley and his progression. Thank you to everyone who attended and come and got rad. We need to give a big shout out to the competition supporters, Colony BMXModus BearingsThe 4 skateboard companyRoot IndustriesGrit Scooters and of course the Action Sports Games.

Brenden Cross is like poetry in motion on a skateboard. 1st place in skate open.

DOWNUNDERGROUND – AUSTRALIAN BMX FLATLAND CHAMPIONSHIPS – 2019

twitterlinkedinmail

DownUnderGround, the 2019 Australian bmx flatland national championships took place in the home base of bmx flatland in Australia, Melbourne. On a nice Melbourne sunny day riders converged on the Melbourne Museum to compete against each other for the Australian bmx flatland champion. Bmx flatland riders from around Australia and the world converged on Melbourne to partake in one of the hardest forms of bmx riding, flatland. It was good to see a great turnout with a few international riders attending. The format was each rider having three runs, each up to two minutes long. The lowest score dropped and both remaining runs added together.

The weather was perfect and the riding was rad. This was the 11th year for DownUnderGround. Its a time when friends come together from all over Australia to ride, share tricks have good times and build the bmx flatland scene in Australia. DownUnderGround has a video contest that the points from go to the year end title. It’s a way to help get the edge over on other riders to help gain that Australian championship title.

The three most progressive beginner riders in Australia battled it out once again for the top three spots in the beginner class. In the beginners class heading into the contest it was Paul Griznic who had a great video entry and was sitting in first place. He didn’t ride as consistent as he would have wanted to and only took a 3rd in Melbourne. His progression is good though and its rad to see that passion. In Melbourne it was local rider David Rooney who ended up taking the win from Rusty Eylward-Pyko in the beginners. David was just a little bit more consistent than Rusty but both rode well. It was really good to see Reuben Pedlar progress so much over the past year. With his first in the video round and a third in Melbourne it was Paul Griznic who to the year end title in the beginners class. All three riders said they were keen to move up to the expert class for next year, we await to see.

In the expert class it was Philipp Frueh that took the win in true Philipp riding style. Second place went to Matt Spencer who rode really well. Third place when to Western Australian rider Shaun Jarvis. Fellow Western Australian rider Trent Karow had won the video round and took a 5th place in Melbourne. This put Trent and Shaun on equal points as Shaun took a 3rd in the video round and a 3rd in Melbourne. The way to work out who was the year end champion was a trick of. After 3 rounds it was Trent who got the judges approval for the win. Congratulations Trent.

The open class was tight between Argentinean rider Gonzalo Bellanti and Indonesian rider Heru Anwari. After the qualifying round both had scored 261 points, who was going to be first and second. Third place went to Sydney resident Paul Chamberlain who had a cracker first run with only one touch. To settle who was going to take first place it was down to a trick off. Gonzalo and Heru each had 30 seconds to pull their tricks. After the first round they judges could not decide, on with the second round. Still the judges could not decide. The third round was super tight with the judges taking some time to deliberate and finally the win was given to Heru. With a first in the video round and a second in Melbourne the year end title went to Gonzalo Bellanti.

DownUnderGround 11 was awesome. If you did not attend you either could not make it or you were abducted by alien creatures. Be sure to attend DownUnderGround 12. Thank you to the competition supporters Freestyle Now, Colony BMXSneaky Wholefoods, Anchor bmx,  ZTFFbmx , Penumbra Bmx.
