Freestyle Now bmx stunt show – Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix


Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx stunt shows at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix, one of the biggest motor sport events taking place in Australia.

The Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix takes place in Victoria on Phillip Island. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and David Pinelli were also joined by guest riders Brock Horneman and Dean Anderson. Veteran squad member Georg Molnar was also there to handle some of the announcing duties. George has not announced a Freestyle Now bmx stunt show for almost 30 years so it was great to hear his voice over the P.A. once again calling the tricks and amping up the crowd. Freestyle now performed bmx stunt shows over the 3 days at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix. The weather was not show friendly over the 3 days. The first day there were clear skies but strong winds and day two and three the rain decided to play games. Throughout the 3 days and 12 bmx stunt shows Freestyle Now were able to perform all 12 shows. We dodged the rain the best we could with some shows starting in the dry only to be called off halfway through and other shows were striped back to the minimum due to the ramps being wet. Whatever the case it shows the true professionalism of Freestyle Now plus Brock said “We cant disappoint the crowds, they came to see a show a show is what they will see”. The crowds were stoked to see the bmx stunt shows for sure. Be sure to check out our coming events page to see where and when Freestyle now will be rolling out the rad next.

DownUnderGround – 2017 Australian bmx flatland Championships – The finals


DownUnderGround is the Australian bmx flatland championships and the 25th November saw the finals hit the iconic location of the Melbourne Imax. 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. DownUnderGround is entering into its 10 year in 2018, the first contest took place in Perth in November 2008. Over the past 9 years many riders have attended at various locations around Australia to compete and have fun. This round of DownUnderGround in Melbourne has the highest rate of beginners the contest series has seen. In Australia bmx flatland riders would rarely get to hang out if it was not for DownUnderGround. It’s not just about a competition, it’s a time for riders to come together, share tricks have goodtimes and build the bmx flatland scene in Australia.


The Riders Life channel came down and filmed this rad compiled video from the competition.

Heading into the finals the points for the year end titles were close. In the beginners David Rooney and Rusty Eylward-Pyko were equal so it would come down to who would place higher at the contest for who would take the year end title. In the expert class Thore Saggau was in the lead by 25 points from Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis, Thore would have to have a really bad day to place last with Shaun having to be on game to take top spot for things to change. In open class it was tied points with two of Australia’s flatland heavyweights, Paul Chamberlain and Simon O’Brien. Simon unfortunately did not show so the year end went to Paul.

David Rooney 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. With the win David took home the year end title and a rad looking trophy. 3rd went to first time competitor Paul Griznic who had some cool combos, he was pumped. 4th was a tie between Melbourne newcomer Jo Hilis and Perth rider Alexsandra Louise who was also competing in her first competition. What was great to see with all of the beginner riders was the willingness to give it a go and not care how sketchy they were, that is what is needed at more competitions.

In the expert class it was a close result between the two German riders with only one point separating first and second with both riders having some hard combos. Phillip Frueh took the top spot from Thore Saggau who took home the second place trophy. Singaporean rider Ron King Tan placed in 3rd with a banger comb at the end of his run. The best way to describe it is a front wheel rolling spin to a hop whip landing on the back pegs in a backwheel spin. Had the King rode a bit more consistent he would have been a threat to the top two. 4th place went to Tasmanian rider Chris Letchford who made the trip at the last minute, it was good to see him there. With Thore Saggau taking 2nd and Shaun Jarvis placing 7th the year end title in the expert class was all Thore’s.

Clockwise from top left – Alexsandra entered her first competition and placed equal 4th, well done (photo from the riders life) – Phillip Frueh took thhe top spot in the expert class by 1 point – the top 3 in the beginner class, David Rooney taking the year end title – Ais Rahadiyan took 4th in the open class with tricks like this cliffhaneger.

The open class was won by Indonesian rider Heru Anwari. Some rad fast back wheel trickery was what sealed his win. There was only 5 points separating 1st and 3rd so you know the riding was good. Heru was on fire and it was great to see his style at DownUnderGround. Freestyle Now squad members Paul Chamberlain and Lee Kirkman took home 2nd and 3rd. Both Paul and Lee had some hard combos on the back and front wheel which would have help their scores. Both were of equal consistency but the judges must have awarded Paul a few more points in difficulty. 4th place went to another Indonesian rider Ais Rahadiyan who has been living in Melbourne for the past year. Ais had some good combos but just was not on game with his consistency on competition day.

All round the finals of DownUnderGround were one of the most successful rounds to date, good international turnout, high number of beginners, the rain stayed away and everyone had fun. 2018 will be the tenth year that DownUnderGround will be running and the promotion of flatland bmx continues.

Willetton skatepark was the next location in the Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series. Round 12 was a massive turnout with 78 competitors. Willetton has always had big numbers and it was great to have some sun shine at the Willetton competition as the last few years it’s been plagued by bad weather. Skateboard and BMX both had some good numbers with all three classes having entrants. Scooter beginners again had a large number of competitors as did scooter intermediate. The riding that all of the competitors were displaying was nothing but progressive. It is great to see so many younger riders coming up and progressing from beginners into the opens. A large thank you to The City of Canning for their support. We would also like to thank our other supporters Colony BMX, The 4 skateboard company, Modus, Grit scooter and Vokul scooters.

Dez Maarsen – rolling out the rad


Freestyle Now squad member Dez Maarsen has been super busy over the last few months, travelling Europe, winning contests, finishing school and being involved in a big theater production. Currently Dez is about to compete once again at Flatark in Kobe, Japan. We caught up with Dez to get the low down on what he has been up to and to do a catch up on all the contests that he has been rolling out the rad at. Read on.

Dez Maarsen captured mid combo switch at the Ruhr games.

You have been hitting up a few contests lately which one were they?

After not competing for all most a year I hit four contests in one month. So a contest almost every week. It started this year with Ruhr Games at the beginning of June. It was an invitational contest for European riders. For European conditions it was extremely hot during the finals. Due to a busy tour schedule and school I wasn’t able to really prepare for this contest. The weather conditions didn’t make it any easier so I ended up riding so well.
I decided to take trip to Croatia for the Croatia BMX Championship to get more in de contest mood. This contest was held on the boulevard in the beach town of Baska Voda. It ws good to see a lot of riders from Eastern Europe from Czech and Hungary making the trip to Croatia. The contest was held in the evening, so during the day we had time to enjoy the sunny weather and chill at the beach. After a small qualification the finals where in battle format. During the contest I got in a nice flow and hit some combo’s I was really stoked about. In the final with Dominik Nekolny and Chris Bohm I took some more risks, but didn’t finish too much combo’s, so I had to do it with 3th place.

At the sea side town of Baska Voda in Croatia Dez powers through one of his original combos, check the feet, you know he is about to pivot on them pegs.

A week after Croatia it was time for the second edition of the Urban Sport week Amsterdam. We had a small turn out since Nass aka the Worlds was held the same weekend. Riders from all over the Benelux made it to Amsterdam. Viki Gomez who is originally from Spain, but is now living in Luxembourg made it to support an up and coming contest instead of heading to the Worlds. The contest was hosted in the centre of Amsterdam and we had a nice OSB floor for flatland on Sunday. The weather was hitting over 30 degrees, which is pretty special for Dutch weather conditions. My trip to Croatia got me back in the contest flow and this time I kept it together during the contest. I managed to pull all my bangers in the final jam battle with Viki Gomez, Gilles van der Sompel and Sietse van Berkel, scoring me first place on home turf.

Nothing like the taste of victory on home ground.


Speed and flow is the Dez Maarsen trade mark style, and it was evident in Amsterdam.

Then it was time for one of the biggest contest of the year, the annual BMX Cologne contest. Again the contest was held in the bumpercar arena which made sure there was a great floor and awesome ambience! A couple of big names that made it last year where missing, but still the level was top notch and almost all the top pro riders from around the world made it. Almost 40 pro riders entered which was pretty much the highest entry I’ve seen all year. During the qualifications I managed to drop a solid run that scored me second place. Unfortunately the day of the finals my run it didn’t went as I wanted. I’ve noticed that sometimes it is nicer to qualify in a less higher position. This way you don’t have to wait for all the riders to pass and you just focus on your own run.

I’ve noticed that sometimes it is nicer to qualify in a less higher position. This way you don’t have to wait for all the riders to pass and you just focus on your own run. 

After a big theater tour, writing my thesis and hitting a contest almost ever week I decided to take a good rest during the summer. After not riding so much there was one contest close to home on the agenda. This time I made a trip to Antwerpen, Belgium for Antwerpen City Drops. There was a small turnout of Dutch and Belgium riders with the appearance of David Hoffman from Germany and Martin Drazil from Czech. We were blessed with great weather all weekend! Antwerpen City Drops was hosted by the City of Antwerpen and had wide range of Actions Sports. The disciplines where spread over the city and BMX Flatland and Dirt was hosted next to Antwerpen historical Castle, giving the contest a cool ambiance and a lot of spectators. I was pretty solid the whole weekend and manage to hit all my contest combos in the final jam battle and took home the win. All round there was a great vibe at this contest. All the riders hanging out after the contest and jamming. This is really what flatland is about.

Antwerpen City Drops bmx flatland contest was a sweet victory in the battle finals for Dez Maarsen. Such a solid finals run.


The pure power and style of Dez was in full effect at the Antwerpen City Drops contest battle finals.

What ones have been your favourite and why?

The Urban Sport Week Amsterdam was definitely the best. The event is as set up great this time and I rode the best here. The victory was really great with all my friends, family and theater show colleges to cheer me on! And I was stoked to pull all my bangers after struggling at the previous competitions. I even saved a trick for the final that I manage to pull in the last second.

St Martin has a new prototype frame, can you tell us anything about it?

The geometry is the same as the previous Opera frame, there are just a few minor changes on the frame to make it stronger. The strawberry patented wedge seat clamp has been replaced with different seat clamp. Then the chain stay is more cleaner and has some fancy bended tubes and thicker dropouts. The frame I’m testing isn’t heat treated so I won’t be able to truly test its strength.

The new prototype St Martin Opera frame is in current test mode, its looking solid.

You’re heading back to Flatark, it’s been 2 years since your last time there, what are you looking forward to the most and the least? 

I’m the most excited about the Japanese riding scene to hang out and ride with the riders. The scene is still top notch and so strong. Now with all the super young kids riding BMX Japan is making sure flatland will stay alive in Japan. Also i’m looking forward to the food!! Can’t wait to have a bowl of ramen. The thing I’m looking for the least is jet lag and qualifications. Arriving in Japan on Wednesday, with qualifications on Friday I hope there will be enough time to get ready.

Dez qualifying run from Flatark 2015

You have finished your school studies now, what were you studying? How will this help moving forward? Are you glad it finished with?

Getting this bachelor degree feels like such a big win. It was a long journey to get this. Struggling with dyslexia, school was never my thing. After dropping out of school at the age of 17 after getting my high school degree, riding BMX and traveling where my only ambitions. My mom supported my decision as long as I found a job. After working at soulcycle BMX shop for a couple of months I got the best job a young BMX rider could ask for. I was approached by ISH a theater group that makes breakthrough theater shows by using urban sport and street arts. I saw them preform a year before and back then I toughed it would be so awesome to be part it, so it was definitely a dream come true. For two years I was performing in sold out theaters and traveling and Romania and China to even to shows there where big high lights. After two years unfortunately the tour was over. I saved up enough money to finally make my trip to Japan where I spent over a month travelling across the country with my homie Gino Stuart. Competing at the legendary King of Ground contest making the final of pro contest for the first time at the Prova Cup in Hiroshima. After I was super motivated, but had to get a job again and ended up as dish washer. I decided I had to be more pro active in getting shows. Media & Entertainment Management seemed like a fitting study and with the right motivation, taking some test I was accepted to my local university.
Studying and riding went pretty good together. I still had plenty of time to ride. Unfortunately studying and competing didn’t always go so well together. Sometimes I would skip exams and risk getting expelled from the semester by skip mandatory classes just to go to competitions abroad. At the end of college I was pretty deep in competing since I no longer had mandatory classes. Riding was more priority since I was competing in the World Circuit. After doing that for two years it was really time to finish college. Getting back in college mode was hard, so finishing it was a hard time. Many months of no riding and rejected graduation studies passed. But the same determination I’ve for riding kept my going and after struggling for almost two years I finally graduated and I’m a proud owner of a Bachelor in Arts.
For now I want to focus on BMX, traveling, riding shows and competing and slowly make a transition to pursue a career in the real world.
Thanks to my supporters St Martin, Soul City Cycles and Freestyle Now.

Freestyle Now at Onslow skatepark activation


Freestyle Now recently travelled to Onslow to host some skatepark coaching workshops. Freestyle Now promotes inclusiveness at all of our skatepark activation sessions and Onslow was no different. The skatepark coaching sessions were open to all participants of any age for bmx, scooter and skateboard. Squad members Shaun Jarvis and Kieran Ramsay invited rad skater Adam Pacynko along for the journey. The trio played the “Game of life” on this trip, like on all trips, with Adam doing the most pushups. Lots of radness went down at the skatepark during the few days the trio was there. It is great to travel to remote areas and engage with skatepark users, getting them to learn new skills and help them roll out the rad. Freestyle Now hosts many skatepark activation sessions with bmx, skateboard and scooter skatepark coaching workshops, jam sessions and private sessions. If you want more information please contact Freestyle Now.

Freestyle Now skatepark coaching and competition in Karratha


For the past several years Freestyle Now has been returning to the Pilbara and the City of Karratha to run some skatepark coaching sessions and skatepark competitions. We have met many skatepark participants over the years and we have watched them grow, progress and achieve. When you see that moment when a first trick is pulled or a goal has been achieved for the first time it is an amazing thing to witness. Although it may be very basic for the more advanced rider, it was a time that you too were just like that mastering the basics. This is one of the joys of hosting skatepark coaching sessions.

Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Mitch Harris and Hudson Goodchild were sent on the task to roll out in the City of Karratha. The trio visited Dampier, Wickham, Roebourne and Karratha skateparks for some skatepark coaching workshops and Nichol West skatepark to host round 11 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark competition series. this video highlights some of the moments when the skatepark participants achieved their first time goals as well as some skatepark action from Shaun, Mitch and Hudson. A big thank you to the Youth Shed crew in Karratha.

The Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series once again was in the north west of Western Australia. Karratha was the location of round 11.

Freestyle Now in Port Hedland


Last month Freestyle Now travelled to Port Hedland once again to roll out the rad and engage with the skatepark users of South Hedland and Port Hedland skateparks. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and Kieran Ramsay were there for 3 days for some skatepark coaching sessions and skatepark competition.

It is always great to head back to Port Hedland and see the progress that the crew there are making.
