Our Canadian squad gets even heavier today with the addition of Dean Hartley to the mix through the guys at OGC. "Dean is that guy who can do anything he tries (except maybe barspins) and make it look effortless. Dean Hartley is a name you will want to remember for years to come, he is truly one of Canada’s best kept secrets."
The beginning of 2016 marked 10 years of existence for Madera. From three simple products to a full line of parts, we have grown thanks to two things: the people who have supported us and the riders who represent us. So, to celebrate 10 years of American-made BMX parts, 10 years of riding and traveling, and 10 years of great times, we think it's fitting to showcase the riders who keep us going in a video made for the people who have kept us going. The team, some old and some new, have worked hard for the last 9 months to do what they do best and share it with all of you who have supported us in the past, continue to support us now, or may support us in the future. Check out what makes us tick, what we are proud to share, and what we hope gets you stoked. Thanks for all of your support and here's to another 10 years!
Myself ( Tama Lewis ), Jett man (Cosmic Rumble) and Dylan Lewis my brother decided too spend new years in Canberra catching up with some good friends! Along the way I filmed our antics and this is what I've ended up with. I am aware its not the clearest and best filming but Making this was a lot of fun and has given me the drive to really get into filming and really learn how too use my camera. I thought I may as well use my time wisely as in some of the trails footage I actually broke my wrist which cut our trip short. As usual the dudes at backbone were nothing but legends and so were all the rest of the locals, A massive thanks for having us!
2016 was my 13th year back riding after suffering a brain injury from a serious bike crash, It was also 20 years from when I began riding BMX. I was keen to film what I hoped would be one of best video projects, at 33 years young! However in the all too familiar Nik Ford time bomb scenario, I had another nasty crash on my bike and needed to have surgery to reconstruct my shoulder. This delayed the start of filming and meant I had a lot to fit in to the later half of the year. Now the edit is complete I am stoked with all the clips, my favourites include the no handed xup grind, suicide double barspin rocket icepick, feeble grind to xup pegs to barspin out and the rodeo grind.
It was particularly hard to film in this spot as most of the ramps are 5ft or smaller but it's on my door step, it's only 3.5 and its cool to give your local parks some coverage. I will be shooting TWS4 this year but I need to build some perfect setups and go to some epic parks!
