Shaun Jarvis – Rolling out the rad in April 2021 video

twitterlinkedinmail

Shaun Jarvis April 2021 bmx edit has some crazy moments.

Freestyle Now co founder and squadron leader Shaun Jarvis has been riding BMX for 40 years and he is not slowing down just yet at 52 years of age. In April he attended many different locations with Freestyle Now hosting coaching sessions and skatepark competitions. The premise behind the video was to get clips at as many of the locations as possible that Freestyle Now visited. In some cases there was not much time to plan its was simply ride and film. Shaun explains “For me riding is an organic process, nothing should be forced, just let it flow. It was a lot of fun filming the clips. Looking at the spot and thinking how can I interact with what’s here and how does my riding fit with the location. Many of the clips are just freestyled, no set plan just as it flowed out. Some took longer than should have and some were a one and done. Over all I’m stoked on the clips, I pushed myself a bit more than normal, took some heavy slams and the outcome is some great memories. Big massive thanks to Kareece Furneyvall and Amos Hadad for their filming, really appreciate it. Stay rad”

Freestyle Now Embelton Primary School BMX presentation

The more effort you put in the bigger the rewards

Freestyle Now attended the Embelton primary school for a school assembly presentation as part of a reading reward program they had running at the school. The day before the school assembly presentation Freestyle Now hosted a coaching session at the school for skateboard, scooter and bmx participants. In the presentation we spoke about how putting in the effort you are able to achieve the rewards and bmx riding is just one example of this. You cannot get good at bmx freestyle riding if you don’t put in the effort. The more effort the bigger the reward. Main Freestyle Now presenter Shaun Jarvis  also spoke about the act of kindness and that how being kind has its own reward, others being kind to you. Freestyle Now squad member Luke Tooze was on hand to throw down some of his radness as well as good friend Daniel Davis. The school students love it and got super excited when Principle Walker sat on top of the ramp and got jumped over.

Luke Tooze sends it over the top of the Embelton Primary school principle Mr. Walker

2020 DownUnderGround – Australian BMX flatland championships

twitterlinkedinmail

2020 DownUnderGround , the Australian BMX flatland championships number 12 was a video only contest, open to all riders around the world. With the current global situation with Covid -19 travel restrictions are in place around the world and earlier this year within Australia. This made organizing a national contest problematic. We could not set a date as we never knew if or when travel restrictions would ease up in Australia and or if riders would even want to travel interstate with the current conditions. As DownUnderGround has had a video round as part of the contest for many years it was a easy decision to make 2020 a video only contest. To make the video even more special we had our contest judges live announce over the video after they had judged the video contest and the riders were placed in the video according to their contest placement. Thanks to Shaun Jarvis, Paul Chamberlain and Joe Cicman and James McGraw.

The format of the contest was easy, riders submit their video as if they were riding at a contest. No edits or multiple clips, one continual run, no less than 1 minute and no more than 2 minutes. Each rider’s video was judged by three judges using the DownUnderGround contest format. Each judge scores each category out of 20 points;
Difficulty – How difficult and complex the tricks are.
Consistency – How consistent the rider is in pulling the tricks within the contest run.(feet down, foot dab, smoothness of run)
Variety – This is left up to the judge’s discretion on what their own interpretation of variety is. This can take into account range of techniques (spinning, turbining, rolling, scuffing, stationary, pumping…) variety and range of tricks, types of tricks, combinations of tricks, front and rear wheel usage, backwards and forwards.
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.

Due to the nature of the contest we knew we would get many international riders entering than Australian riders. This just made the contest so much more rad. The level of riding around the world is amazing. Some many great riders being able to showcase their riding and their riding spot. Nothing but pure radness in the video.

Congratulations to Freestyle Now squad members for their placings – Shaun Jarvis 18th experts , Lee Kirkman 12th opens, Paul Chamberlain 7th opens.

Thank you to DownUnderGound supporters – Freestyle Now , Colony BMX

Groundswell festival 2020 Scarborough Beach BMX Bowl battle

twitterlinkedinmail

Scarborough Beach bowl, right on the beach, perfect for a bmx bowl battle.

The Groundswell festival was an amazing event. Right on the beach with a amazing bowl just perfect to a bmx bowl battle to take place. Freestyle Now hosted the first BMX bowl competition in Perth and it was fitting that is was at the biggest bowl this side of the Simpson Desert. Everyone took home a plethora of prizes thanks to the Groundswell Festival, Colony BMX, Sneaky Wholefoods and Local BMX. There were two classes that the riders could enter, The RAD and The RADDEST. Very easy to work out who should be in which class.  The format was a battle final. Qualifying was super important, qualify in first and the other riders have to battle their way to take you on. Two riders would go into a battle round, each rider would have two 60 second runs back to back. If you won your battle round you would take on the next place rider. The three judges would vote who would progress into the next battle round. It was an exciting final to watch, with each class taking alternating turns so rider got to have a rest. You had to be in top form or you got the cut. Keep the radness flowing and you would progress into the next round.

Luke Tooze floating it over the hip, one of the great lines that he was taking around the bowl.

 

 

Such a rad video of the competition, this one is really worthy of a play and then a replay and a replay.

The RAD class.

It was great to see Noah Campbell-Ward drop into the bowl for the first time during practice and then come up and enter the comp. 7th place. In the battle finals it was a battle between father and son. Corey Brown (5th place qualifier) was challenged by 6th place qualifier Levi Brown. The two riders went back to back for two 60 second runs each. With three judges voting who was the best of the battle. Two votes for Corey Brown and moving up into the next battle round. Levi Brown 6th place. Rowan Cosh (qualified 4th) was waiting for his challenger. Rowan rode well in the qualifiers but somehow lacked the same level of riding in the battle finals. Corey was flowing the bowl which could have been why he got two votes from the three judges and he moved into the next battle. Rowan Cosh 5th place. Roman Depiazzi (qualified in 3rd) is 11 years old and he was waiting for his challenger, over 40 year old Corey Brown. This was the third time Corey had to ride in the battle, but he was still looking good. Was he as good as Roman? It was a tight one to judge, with the judges taking a while to cast their votes. Corey had speed and power in his run but Roman did a rad 360 out of the top waterfall and also did manage to manual across the waterfall hip. That could have been the deciding factors that gave Roman the two votes needed. Corey Brown 4th place. Albie Livesley (2nd place qualifier) is 7 years old. He sat waiting for the results of the previous battle to see who is challenger was going to be, Roman Depiazzi. These two young riders are definitely rad and it could have gone either way. It was super close. The judges took some time to cast their votes weighing up all the rad factors of each of their two 60 second runs. But it was Roman who took the two votes, could have been his 360 up the waterfall that was the deciding factor. Albie Livesley 2nd place. Tyler Gayski had been waiting for his challenger after qualifying in 1st. Tyler has been riding bmx for a lot longer than Roman and is a lot more powerful in his riding. Roman put up a good challenge but it was a unanimous decision from the judges, three votes to Tyler Gayski. Great riding, good airs and lots of flow gave Tyler the win. Roman Depiazzi 2nd place, Tyler Gayski 1st place.

Clockwise from top left – Tyler Gayski took the win in the Rad class with some great flow and dexterity. – Roman Depiazzi sent it hard in the battle finals, this manual across the waterfall hip help to secure the 11 year old the second place. – Albie Livesley lets his riding do the talking, he lets it speak loudly. Racking up a respectful 3rd place. Great riding from the 7 year old radical rider. – fourth place went to over 40 year old Corey Brown. Age is a number and skill is a level. He rode really well in the Rad class and it was awesome to see the father and son battle in the finals.

Jacob Kestel with one of the most raddest moves of the comp. Old school bmxers call this trick a Hanna named after motocross legend Bob Hannah other will just call it a front tyre head butt. Whatever you want to call it is definitely rad.

The RADDEST class

This was going to be one rad competition with a good mix of riders of different styles. In qualifying it was Luke Tooze that was 34 points ahead of 2nd place qualifier Brad Evans who had 132 points, 3rd place was Ryan Aqulina 131 points and Jay Roadley qualifying in 4th place with 130 points. That is a super tight qualifying result. Heading into the battle finals Nick Morgan had to taking on 6th place qualifier Kieran Ramsay. With 3 judges all voting on Kieran to move onto the next round. Kieran sent flairs and good air and flow as well as a few handplants which sealed the deal for him. Nick rode good but just was airing not as high as Kieran. Nick Morgan 7th place. Going into the next battle Kieran was taking on Jacob Kestel. These two guys were only 1 point separated in qualifying. Both completely different styles. Jacob rode well in the qualifiers but in the battle finals spent a bit too much time trying to jump from the waterfall hip up and out over the coping to the top of the ramp. Had he pulled that he would have moved up into the next round. Jacob did some awesome tricks in his run though, his downside handplants looked rad just like his head butts on the front tyre jumps and drop ins. Judges gave two votes to Kieran. Jacob Kestel 6th place. Kieran Ramsey was moving into his third round and had to take on Jay Roadley. Jay had some tech skills that Kieran did not. Jay rode with more variation although Kieran did put up a good fight to progress into the next round but it was Jay that got the two votes from the three judges that sent him into the next battle round. Kieran Ramsay 5th place.

Clockwise from top left – Brad Evans or as he is now called Rad Evans did amazing job of bicycle stunting at the Groundswell Scarborough beach bmx bowl battle. Taking the 3rd place and getting rad all at the same time. – Western Australian bmx legend Aquaman a.k.a. Ryan Aqualina straight up ruled. It was amazing to watch him use his bunny nut out riggers on the coping. A 4th place to Aquaman. – Big Orse Kieran Ramsey wanted to look at the Scarborough beach bowl from every angle so he did a flair to see how it looked from that angle, when asked did it look any different his reply was definitely did. – Nick Morgan had a heap of fun and won a stack of prizes. He also got rad as well. Thanks for rolling Nick.

Jay Roadley is a technical rider with fantastic skills. He can also grab some great air and did so at the Groundswell Scarborough beach bmx bowl battle and scored himself a 2nd place in the Raddest class.

Moving into round 4 Jay Roadley was taking on Western Australian BMX legend Ryan Aqulina. Both these riders like to use their pegs and both these rider ride hard. Ryan let loose with some great rad lines and tricks but Jay just had that little bit more. The judges had a bit of time to deliberate as where their votes were going and it was Jay Roadley that would progress into round 5. Ryan Aqulina 5th place. Brad Evens had qualified in 2nd and really wanted to keep that place. Jay Roadley had moved up from 4th place qualifier and now was taking on 2nd place, he was knocking on Luke Tooze’s door whole Luke was just chillin. Brad Evan rides big transitions loves to do turndowns and one handed flatties and they were abundant in his run. Smooth flow great control and style. Jay Roadley sent it hard and threw in 540’s, flairs and 270 barspins smith stalls. Brad had it almost in the bag with one vote to each rider until the last vote from the third judge went to Jay. Brad Evans 3rd place. The final battle round was about to begin. Luke Tooze was feeling relaxed and energized while Jay Roadley had just had 3 battle rounds and was now moving into his 4th. Luke had a relaxed warm up and was ready. Jay sent it hard with bar spins, big 540 in the deep end, a 360 drop in to flat at the small section and a rad barspin fakie to half cab into the waterfall. His two runs were rad. Luke went fast, big griz airs, barspins to x ups gapping the waterfall hip, whips and flairs. At the end of his run the fire brigade had to attend to, Luke was on fire! The judges huddled together to have a chat about what they had just witnessed. They were taking a bit longer than anticipated, while Jay had the tech and tricks, Luke had the speed and flow. The judges announcement came and it was unanimous, Jay Roadley 2nd place and Luke Tooze the winner of the RADDEST class at the 2020 Groundswell festival Scarborough Beach Bowl BMX battle.

 

 

The final battle between Luke Tooze and Jay Roadley is definitely worth a watch.

 

Luke Tooze took the win with great flow and rad tricks like this griz air.

The Groundswell festival 2020 Scarborough Beach BMX Bowl battle was a rad competition. The format was super engaging for the public to witness, BMX was in the spotlight for many people attending the festival. Many different styles of riding were on display.
