Brunswick Agricultural show 2021 – BMX stunt shows

twitterlinkedinmail

 “The Brunswick show crowds were rad, I was pumped” Luke Tooze

 

Freestyle Now once again returned to the Brunswick show, the biggest one day agricultural show in Australia to perform BMX stunt shows. Freestyle Now has performed at the Brunswick show many times over the past 35 years and the patrons of the show never let us down with their interaction. For the 2021 show the crowds surpassed all expectations by hyping up the Freestyle Now show riders. So it was good to be back and ready to roll out the rad for the crowds. The crowd interaction is just as important and the BMX show performance, the BMX stunt show performers feel the crowds energy which makes them energized and they end up sending bigger tricks or trying new tricks. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were also joined by Dylan Schmidt.

The day was perfect, no wind, sun was out and the crowds were loud. The performers were feeling the hype from the crowd and they ended up performing some of the most amazing BMX mid air stunts. Josh was sending super smooth superman seat grabs and double flips, Luke was spinning two circles both horizontal and vertical and Dylan landed his first 360 backflip and joined the double flip club.

A triple backflip is always a crowd pleasing favorite. Luke and Josh out in front with Dylan sending the final flip.

Mandurah Boat, Caravan, 4wd and camping show – BMX stunt shows

twitterlinkedinmail

A triple backflip is always a crowd pleasing favorite. Luke and Josh out in front with Dylan sending the final flip

Freestyle Now was at the 2021 Mandurah Boat, Caravan, 4wd and camping show to entertain the patrons with some awesome BMX stunt shows. Over 3 days Freestyle Now rolled out the rad with some serious BMX stunt shows. On day one Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were also joined by Dylan Schmidt to perform BMX stunt shows. The conditions were perfect and the radness was rolled out. On day two we had another list of riders come in for the stunt shows as the Brunswick Junction agricultural show was on the same day and Shaun, Josh, Luke and Dylan we heading there to perform. Freestyle Now squad members Jack Carwardine, Albie Livesley and Taj Hamilton were joined by Nathan Dobbie, Ryan Aqulina and Michael Pidgeon. This crew was in charge of rolling out the rad and that is something they did. Lots of rad stunts were performed and lots of noise was made for the crowds, just like a BMX stunt show should be. One day three Shaun, Josh, Luke and Dylan returned but Josh’s ankle was feeling a little damaged from the Brunswick show, so Michael Pidgeon and Dempsey attend to help out with their radness. This gave the shows something on the next level with 5 rider backflip trains the crowds were so loud. Day three was definitely one of the raddest show days for sure. One of the comments we had from the event organizers was that the stall holders that we set up around the BMX stunt show site could still discuss business with customers while the BMX stunt shows were happening due to the bikes not making any noise, unlike the freestyle motocross shows they have has in the past.

Balga skatepark festival – scooter skateboard bmx skatepark competition – January 2022

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now hosted the first skatepark competition at the new Balga skatepark. It was a well attended event despite the 40c heat. Competitors were told to stay hydrated and apply sunscreen, a 30 minute maximum warm up and two sixty second runs meant they were not out in the heat for long. Sure it was a hot day but nothing can stop the radness from being rolled out. There was a great turn out of competitors in all the divisions. The structure of the skatepark competition was to have the scooter competition first, announce the results and present prizes, then the skateboard competition and finally the BMX competition. This format worked really well over the course of the day. There was so many prizes at this competition that all competitors took home a prize and in some cases two or three prizes. A big thank you goes to the City of Stirling for all their support on this competition

2021 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

On a fine sunny 13th Day of December 2021 many BMX riders descended onto the Bayswater skatepark to partake in the finals of the 2021 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships. The day was fantastic and well attended by participants and spectators. A great display of BMX freestyle skills was put on by the participants. Currently Western Australia is the only state that is holding BMX freestyle state championships and this being the 3rd one with 2019 and 2020 held prior. The competition at Bayswater was the finals in a 3 competition series. Round 1 was held at the Mandurah Action Sports Games in May and round 2 at the Groundswell festival Zambrero BMX bowl battle in October. Points were awarded to competitors at each of these competitions with the rider with the highest points taking the 1st place and claiming the state champion title. Round 1 and the finals were an even points round with round 2 being an odd points round. Check the  table at the bottom of the post to see the final results and placings.

On the day of the competition there was a riders choice vote for the most improved rider, the raddest rider and future Olympian. Over the course of the year many riders deemed it to be Jake Welhan who has improved the most so he got to claim the medal for that. Well done Jake, your one footer tabletops are the raddest. Ruby Rose Welhan was the third competitor to roll out on the day and midway through her first run took a massive slam of cross bar to the mouth, blood was all over the place as she had really given her lip a trauma of great proportion. After some first aid and ice everyone was shocked to see her out there ready for her second run. This act of radness was definitely the key factor on her winning the raddest rider medallion by riders vote. Well done Ruby Rose, see you at the next competition. It was without a doubt that Bianca Martin won the future Olympian medal. We saw that coming right from the get go. Let hope that the riders vote come true and your determination and radness pays off and Bianca represents Australia in the 2032 Olympics.

Congratulations to all the competitors and BMX appreciated your support. Remember the more you attend competitions the more BMX grows.

Clockwise from top left – Ryan Aquilina took the state championship title. He grew up riding Bayswater skatepark and knows the park better than anyone. his lines and flow were so rad to watch. This boost in the horseshoe is way rad. – Roman Riches-Depiazzi is progressing with his tricks well and and consistency is growing. Sending a tailwhip of the beast is a combination of both. 1st in intermediates and winner of the state championship title. – Ruby Rose Whelhan just before her cross bar slammed into her face, but she was ready for her next run and won the riders vote for the raddest rider – Over 50 year old Gareth Evens jumping the beast on his way to 4th in the over 35’s.

Clockwise from top left – Ray Houghton entered the over 35’s class and won the championship. – Albie Livesley rode in the under 10’s and beginners and blasted high airs in both. He went home as state champion in both. Albie will be moving up to the intermediate class for 2022. – The future Olympian Bianca Martin is the 2021 girls champion and also place 2nd overall in the under 10’s and beginners. Her determination is what future Olympians require. – Jack Quinlan is the youngest competitor at age 5 and he powers through the skatepark like a seasoned professional.

Freestyle Now has performed at the Kellerberrin show a few times over the past 26 years first in 1995 then in 2005 and 2013 and 2016. So it was good to be back and ready to roll out the rad for the crowds. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were also joined by Dylan Schmidt. The wind picked up on the day so the middle was taken out of the jump to make it smaller so the BMX stunt shows performers did not get too blown around in the air, Yes it was that windy. Even with the ramp shortened up big tricks were being performed. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Kellerberrin show 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.

Freestyle Now set up the FN big jump on the main strip in Scarborough and proceeded to roll out the rad for the Groundswell Festival patrons. Freestyle Now put on some really good bmx stunt shows to entertain the crowds. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze and 8 year old Albie Livesley were also joined by Dylan Schmidt Big tricks were being performed and the crowds were putting the energy back into the performance, the more noise the crowd makes the more energy the performers receive.

Attempt one and two ended in a spectacular crash, Josh was almost defeated but gave it one more go and sailed across the massive gap with ease to the roar of the crowd. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Groundswell Festival and that is what we achieved.

Tackling mental health with BMX – Freestyle Now RU OK day at Mindarie Collage

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now attended the Mindarie Collage for a school assembly presentation as part of R U OK day. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Josh Garwood and Luke Tooze were at the school to roll out the rad.. The presentations main focus was to talk about mental health. Due to the rain on the day the set up took place in the undercover area. Just before the lunch break the secondary school students got a chance to come and watch the BMX show. The BMX riders performed some great BMX stunts and tricks that the students were super hyped with. In the middle of the presentation Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took to the microphone to talk about the importance of speaking and listening about mental health. It is important to speak about how you are feeling but it is also just as important to listen when someone is not feeling mentally well. When your friend or family member talks to you about how they are feeling it does not always mean you need to fix their problems. Sometimes just speaking to someone who is listening helps. Please remember to ask people R U OK if you can see a change in their mannerisms. Sometimes all it takes to help someone is to ask R U OK.

2021 DownUnderGround – The Australian BMX flatland championships

twitterlinkedinmail

2021 DownUnderGround, the Australian BMX flatland championships number 13 was a video only contest due to travel restriction within Australia. For whatever reason the number of riders who entered was smaller than past years even though the concept was changed this year so riders could submit multiple clips in their video up to 2 ½ minutes. We did get two new riders entered into the beginner class that we have not seen in an Australian flatland competition, this was super rad. As we did for last year we invited the judges, Paul Chamberlain and Joe Cicman and James McGraw, to offer commentary, competition run reviews and general banter on the final video. Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took out the 2nd place in the expert class.

 

Competition format – Each judge scores each category out of 20 points;
Difficulty – How difficult and complex the tricks are.
Flow / smoothness – A riders ability to control their bike and make the combos flow.
Variety – Range of tricks, types of tricks, combinations of tricks, front and rear wheel usage, backwards and forwards. This can take into account range of techniques (spinning, turbining, rolling, scuffing, stationary, pumping…)

The best possible score from one judge per video run is 60 points. The three judges points are added together to determine the winner and place getters.

Thank you to DownUnderGound supporters – Freestyle Now , Colony BMX
