Last Sunday we had the Moomba BMX Competition in Melbourne City Skate Park, Riverslide.
It was an AWESOME event with a great turn out.
In open, we had
1st – Adam Hough
2nd – Luke Parker
3rd – Chris Nicol.
Chris Nicol get a small Unit ‘Hook Up’ & you know he deserves it! To say the kid shreds is a huge understatement!
Here’s what he has to say…
Heaps has been going on for me lately, I just got hooked up by unit, been riding sooo much and my physio has said I have made a full recovery from my knee operation!
So happy with how things are going for me at the moment and for things I have in the works now that I will let everyone know as soon as I can in the near future!
The unit thing came about by one of my good friends John Buultjens pulling some strings and showing Allan hardy at unit what I could do on a bike, Allan contacted me and asked if i would like some product from unit as a hook up, and I was accepted his offer real quick! But it’s just a hook up at the moment until hopefully one day something bigger can come from this.
But yea, that’s enough about me. The weathers nice so get off the computer and go ride!!”
“Hey guys! Haven’t been up to all that much lately, having a ride here and there and just pretty much taking it easy because my knee is still pretty wrecked! I go in for surgery on Tuesday (the 19th) and should be back riding in no time!”
Well this past 5 days I have been in Sydney competing in the newtons nation contest. I signed up for both disciplines (dirt and mini ramp) in the pro category for the first time in my life!
In mini ramp I only just made finals as I qualified last which was fair enough considering I was against some of the biggest names in bmx such as Kyle baldock, Ryan guettler, cam pianta, etc.
After qualifying for mini ramp was qualifying for dirt, I rode terrible in that. On my first run I popped out my knee, again. That ruined all my runs which didn’t let me qualify for finals, pretty bummed about that. But then the mini ramp pro final came around the day after and I rode the best I have ever ridden! So even if I placed last I still would have been stoked. Anyway I ended up throwing down some pretty consistent moves and JUST fell short of 3rd place by a quarter of a point to Ryan guettler, then mini, then Kyle baldock! Can’t even describe how stoked I am right now!
Thanks to everyone that made this weekend happen, and a big thanks to pilgrim and riding way!
Chris Nicol is blowing up everywhere but unfortunately, almost literally. Chris was shredding at Rampfest on Friday and was blasting triple whips when he landed a bit silly and his knee ‘kinda popped’. After discussions with the doctors, he’s been given a green light but must take it easy. Keep your fingers crossed that it’s all good. He’s a tough bloke, so I’m sure it’s good as his inverts. Peep the picture. Dang!
From John's 40th at The Shed, Chris's bike can get upside-down!
Here’s a couple of pics Chris sent me. After blasting flair whips and triple whip airs, chris was boosting downside whips over the hip in the bowl when this lil accident happened. The kid can shred a bike, to pieces by the looks of it…
Invert in the Shed bowl...Multiple tricks cause this....
