Hey guys – it’s been a long, cold winter down in the south in country Victoria where I’m living at the moment. Still been pushing on though and had got the chance to do some demos at Federation Square in Melbourne in July, then in August went on a 3 week road trip up the east coast with my good mate from Hungary, Andras Pentek, to Brisbane where I was stoked to catch up with the Boss, Clint Millar and get out for some flatland sessions! From Brisbane, I then drove straight to Adelaide for a few days, then back to country Victoria. Good times on the bike and the road.
Stoked that summer is on it’s way. Will be heading to Japan in October for 8 days on a riding trip, then soon as I get back, keep a look out on your TV’s as I’ll be getting busy doing demos at the T20 International Cricket matches in Adelaide and Melbourne. Thanks to Freestyle Now for that hookup, will be good to get Colony and BMX out to the masses.
Keep in touch on Insty @shanebadman Thanks to Greg Barnes and Andras Pentek for the images.
Yo yo !!
These guys not only make chairs from plastic garbage found in the ocean, but they do it onboard the boats. While fishing. And they made a manual to show others how to do the same. This is a level of multitasking I aspire to.
Earlier this year we were invited by the ERC to come over and ride with the locals at some of Adelaide’s parks. Over 4 days we collected footage for this video to be used for schools showcasing BMX and the lifestyle that it brings..
Thanks to the Elizabeth Riders Committee, Anglicare, City of Playford and the RAA for making it happen.

I didn’t think I would ever be writing this here but Ryan Guettler is no longer riding for Colony as of today.
He has decided to leave the team, to take a job as a brand manager / pro rider at Hyper & Snafu. I know Ryan has wanted a job within the industry for a while now & I personally wish him all the best in this new chapter in his life.
Ryan has been with Colony since our inception in 2005, he was the first rider I chose as a team rider back then. More importantly, I have known & ridden with Ryan since he was just 7 years old. It has been a fun ride the last 24 years & I am sure there will be many more sessions to come. I do thank you Ryan for your efforts with Colony over the years, it is appreciated. Let the good times roll ahead !! I wish you all the best mate – Clint.
Here are some words from Ryan himself…
What ever I write will not show my appreciation and gratefulness I have for Clint Millar and the family I have over at Colony. All the road trips and good times with the team will be my memories for life. Nothing will change our friendship or the the way I think of the guys over at Colony but this next step is a must for me to take. My career is sunsetting and I’ve always wanted to learn the business side of things. I’ve been through all the ups and downs with in BMX over the past 20 years of my career, my knowledge will help Hyper and Snafu. This would not have been an option with out Clint guiding me along the way. He is a best friend and the god of front brakes, I wish Clint nothing but the best. To all the riders at Colony keep it rubber side down and I’ll miss you guys – Ryan.
Yo yo !!
