twitterlinkedinmail

DownUnderGround number 12 is now upon us. With the current global situation with Covid-19 travel restrictions are in place around the world and definitely in Australia, It is highly unlikely that a physical contest will take place. Yes this is a sad situation as all of Australian flatland riders enjoy the time when we can come together and ride and catch up with everyone. DownUnderGround first started holding a video contest back in 2013 so in true tradition of DownUnderGround a video contest will be held but this will have a twist, but you will have to wait for that information till after entrees close. Riders will need to submit their video entry by 31st October. Your video entry will form the contest for the Australian championships. Who will be the 2020 Australian bmx flatland champion? Thank you to DownUnderGround supporters – Freestyle Now and Colony BMX.

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.

Luke Tooze with an awesome line through the Bunbury skatepark. Up the ledge into the bowl. 1st place in BMX 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.

1st place in the open class went to Heru Anwari – photo Stephen Pretty

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.

2019 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

BMX freestyle is now an official Olympic sport. There are many different types of bmx freestyle riding from street, skatepark, flatland, vert and dirt but it is the skatepark style is the one that is now in the Olympics. Freestyle Now decided it was time to run an official Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships for skatepark riders. The location was the Belmont skatepark due to its openness and functionality along with having a good jump box. There were a great number of riders who entered the competition which catered for many ages and skill levels. Under 10’s, beginners, intermediates, over 35’s and the open class.

Freestyle Now squad members placed we in the competition with Josh Garwood taking 2nd in open even though he went to hospital with a concussion and new squad member Luke Tooze taking 3rd in the open class along with Jack Carwardine placing 11th. Co founder of Freestyle Now Shaun Jarvis was leading the over 35’s class but took the 2nd place in the finals and recruits squad member Taj Hamilton took the 6th place in the intermediate class

The week leading up to the competition day was rain all week. But come competition day the sun was out although it was windy, but this did die down toward the end of the day. Many bmx riders turned up to roll out the rad and to try to take the prestigious number 1 in Western Australia title. There were lots of different styles of riding going down over the different classes, some riders going wide open and some riders being super technical along with a mix between them all. All up it was a great representation of the riding that is currently taking place in Western Australia. The riding in the groups was all really close as you can tell by the points awarded to each rider, each competitor had two runs with only their best run being taken into account for their points. Riders were judged on difficulty, diversity and consistency with a maximum score from one judge of 60 points, and when you add up all the numbers for rider to be only one or two points the difference you know it’s a close competition. A big congratulation to all the riders who entered and especially to the riders who took out the number 1 positions. Freestyle Now hopes to roll out the state championships into other states around Australia over the next year. We would like to thank our supporters for the 2019 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships, Colony BMX, Local BMX, Mad Orse Industries, City of Belmont and Bmx sports Western Australia along with the sports governing body Freestyle BMX Australia.

A first place in the open scooters at his home skatepark – Hunter McGill is an awesome name to have if you are a skateboarder and in this case Hunter McGill is a skateboarder and a good one at that. A first place in the intermediate class for the guy who travelled over 200kms just to skate at the competition – Levi Rehbeck is a rad scooter rider and we hope to see him in the open class soon. Mad skills displayed at the High Wycombe skatepark competition from Levi like this 360 helpd him take the win. More photos can be found on our Facebook page here.
