Freestyle Now rolling out the rad at the Australian Moto Grand Prix

With the Phillip Island race circuit in the background and the crowd behind the camera Freestyle Now squad members Luke Tooze and Shaun Jarvis team up for some radical action on the small kicker ramp.

Freestyle Now recently performed bmx stunt shows at the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix in Phillip Island in Victoria. 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 ever done over the past 32 years can be found on our past stunt show page.

FREESTYLE NOW – GETTING RAD IN THE STREET

twitterlinkedinmail

Practice make perfect as the saying goes. But how do you practice for a bmx stunt show, work on new tricks and gain more confidence? You set up your bmx stunt show ramps in the street and proceed to get rad, and that exactly what we did. We invited Freestyle Now squad members Josh Garwood, Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze, Tim Rose and Taj Hamilton to come and get rad in the street. We set up the FN big jump on the street out the front of our house and got rad. We also invited good friends Nathan Joson, Daniel Davis and Kieran Ramsay along for the day to session the FN big jump and throw down some tricks, try new tricks and generally get used to hitting up the FN big jump. What a fun and rad day it was. Be sure to watch the video.

It was great to had veteran Freestyle Now squad member Tim Rose come and have a roll on the FN big jump, Nice table 360.

Getting rad in the streets, be sure to watch the video to see what we got up to.

Luke Tooze worked on some new tricks, this is the result of some of that work. Be sure to watch the video to see what Luke was working on.

Freestyle Now would like to welcome our newest squad member, Luke Tooze. Luke has been riding bmx since 2010 and in that time has been slowly progressing the radness. Luke first came in our radar sights via competing at the skatepark competitions we hold, first as a beginner and then slowly progressing up to the open class. When we needed a fill in rider for our bmx stunt shows Luke’s name came up a few times as a rider that had the right attitude and radness. He brought such a rad energy that he got invited a few more times as a guest rider. Luke gets it. With all the right elements, radness, super keen, unique riding style, great energy, easy going and knows how to entertain a crowd during a stunt show. Luke is also progressing his riding and tricks with recently learning double backflips that he is keen to bring to the Freestyle Now bmx stunt shows. Welcome Luke to the Freestyle Now squad, may your grips be well worn and your calluses be hard, lets roll out the rad. Be sure to check out Luke’s profile page for some more information in the radster.
