Department of Transport Bike Love festival – BMX stunt shows

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now teamed up with the Western Australian Department of Transport for their bike love festival. They had been working with Shelly Primary School over a few months implementing a ride to school program. To finish up the program they had the students ride from the school to the Kent Street Weir Park where the City of Canning had just finished installing a new pump track. The students had the opportunity to have Freestyle Now coach them on the pump track on how to ride it safely, it was the first time many of them had been on a pump track. At the lunchtime break Freestyle Now performed BMX stunt shows for the students. It was great to have some Western Australian BMX legends perform in the shows with Ryan Aquilina, Dempsey and Michael Pidgeon. The weather was hot and so were the tricks. Performing in front of school children is always rad as they are so hyped and always keen to make lots of noise.

Helmet safety ain’t no joke – Be sure your helmet is a certified helmet for your safety

twitterlinkedinmail

Helmets save lives. Wearing a helmet at the skatepark is vital. Wearing the proper helmet is vital. Wearing the helmet properly is vital. Shaun Jarvis runs through helmet information that can either give you a trip to the hospital, stop your riding session for the day, have someone wipe your bum and feed you for the rest of your life, give you a bit of a headache, or let you keep on riding for the day. There is no point wearing an ice cream container with padding, it’s not going to do much. Remember your choice can not only affect you but those around you in the moment and in the long term. Safety never takes a holiday so be sure you have the right helmet that fits right.

Australian’s Got Talent – Freestyle Now stunt show

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now took to the Australian’s Got Talent stage with pure raw freestyle energy.

Freestyle Now got to perform a stunt shows for Australia’s Got Talent auditions. We assembled a rad crew consisting of Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze along with Gonzalo Bellanti, Chris James, Matty Ceravolo, Zeth Bennett and Nathan Philps. The crew hit the AGT stage with pure raw freestyle energy. Filming of the show took place in Sydney at the end of June 2022 and unfortunately, we did not make it to the next round. There were many challenges around the set up on stage, difficult blind run up, challenging run off and a full change to the performance routine due to having to make the jump smaller, which was a challenge in itself to work that one out. We managed to run through the show routine only twice. Once on the set up outside which was perfect conditions and once on stage. Had we had more stage rehearsal time then who knows our performance might have been tighter. We rolled out the rad and made people stoked and motivated, we fulfilled what has been our main goal for the last 35 years. Big thanks to AGT for getting us on the show, we all had a blast. The on-air audition was cut up a bit and did not show the entire 8 minutes, but what was shown we are stoked on. Thanks to the team of performers we had, you all are rad.

 

Be sure to check out our performance which aired on Channel 7

Freestyle Now BMX stunt shows – Carine High School presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

 

 

Freestyle Now attended the Carine Senior High School for a full day of motivational presentations. The presentations focused on resilience, something all BMX riders will know. Achieving goals is challenging, you have to be focused. There are many hurdles and barriers that can slow you down from achieving your goals, be it with BMX tricks or just in life achievements. You need to know how to jump over the hurdles and push through the barriers. Throughout the course of the day Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze and Josh Garwood not only did some BMX stunt riding but also spoke of their personal barriers they had to overcome with injuries to keep on achieving their goal. Determination is what is required to achieve and each person has a different level of determination, but it’s their determination and they own it. Each person tackles achieving goals differently, and it’s how to go about pushing yourself to reach them goals that creates your resilience. All of these things BMX teaches you.

Freestyle Now headed out to beautiful York to be part of the RAC road safety day that the York Community Resource Centre had organised. Skatepark activation and BMX stunt shows were one of the key parts of the day. Local rock band Engine Eight took to the stage to also lay down some great rock music. It was a fanatic day. Such a great vibe. The crowds were small but the noise was loud. We like loud, it brings the hype and amps everyone up. The louder the crowds the bigger the show. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze were joined by recruits squad members Taj Hamilton and Albie Livesley with two guest riders Ronan McCamish and Michael Pidgeon.
