It's been something we've tried to do since 2010, have an Australian made frame within the Colony range. Well after 13 years we've finally made it a reality. What better way to grace Jayden Fuller with his very first signature frame?
Latvia! Thank you, Baldone, for a brilliant day of racing, massive support, and some pump track love. Along with the BTA Pump Track and Latvian Champs, it turned out to be a huge day with over 200 riders across the various disciplines and age categories. In the Women’s category, the current World no 3 Vineta Petersone made no mistakes in securing her ticket to the World Final in a cracking time of 14.662.

S is for September and Simple Session! More than 100 world-class skateboarders and BMX riders will be back in Tallinn’s old rubber factory – Põhjala turned into action sports heaven on September 23–24.

Another amazing pump Track Qualifier was held at Hei park Tosovice, Czech Republic! Absolutely good times here. We're not sure what Slovakia has been up to, but man, are they just taking wins left right and center at the moment. We count 4 tickets already to the World Championships.
