Well who ever gets the job will have loads of good clay so that's a start as theres a mountain of clay next to the track, but don't ya think some diggers/builders that know about BMX or at least ride BMX (abit) should be building the new lines in Dunedin? Let's hope the racers/jumpers (not the wool kind either) are involved! $75,000 for Lismore & $35,000 for extensions @ The Gorge Jumps in QT.......mmmm you only need to look at either to see were the quality & pride in workmanship is. The Gorge kicks Lismore's ass ! Straight up anyone who says it don't is a bit retarded possibly hahah, Lismore's maintenance has been up to a couple of young kids an there doing a much better job , they actualy now how to pack dirt! Go the kids for showing some initiative!
oh and beware of THUNDER BIKES if your in wanaka an need ya BMX fixed their the dodgiest, don't know what there on about (BMX wise i'm reffering to) & will most defiantly rip you off, i've seen their work ie since when do ya glue headset cups into a BMX frame or any frame in fact or tell a kid he needs to buy a new rim , so it's easier to lace a new hub into the old rim haha spokes maybe but not a rim when there is nothing wrong with it , BMX's are so simple man no rocket science here! Support a real NZ BMX shop that know their shit Revolutionnz ! they wont rip ya off, they'll hook you up with what ya need, check them out & shop online with ya moms credit card it's so easy..... just don't get caught hahah DIG TRAILS !
Photo stolen off Sam , who was 3'in at the hills , nice one bro, i told ya Stony Hills is sick didn't i, see ya there sometime! So for all ya juicy tuti fruti BMX treats peeps check out Revolutionnz & support NZ's biggest & badest BMX shop! Revolutionnz has it covered! Dig trails & have a sweet new years all !

plan , white area is what's here now & the maroon/blue areas are what where raising $$$ for !
Tim Hales ruling it !! no handed foot jam
Tim Hales & his dope side hack !!
Alright peeps there's been alot of people around the globe commenting on the Demon- Tim Hales Shredathon vid , yep there were more than 3 boys at the comp , but you don't see that in the vid footage from the shredthon at all really , the footage is good & so is the editing but the essence of the day was not captured as such, so i'll be loading up a vid to Vimeo shortly & on this blog !! I really hate politics even when you try to avoid 'em , well it still happens !
The Demon name on the vid happened cause the producer of the vid made a private deal with them an got paid , the president of Wanaka Sk8 Club, Eddie Spearing ( top bloke man ) made a good point "What did demon do for the event/park" well the answer is this , they were at the shedathon handing out drinks , which were much loved by the kids , they supported the event along with all the other sponsers with product/prizes. Demon are not being singled out at all , but they were the only non BMX/corp sponsor tho , an this whole mess is bit of a communication break down by all involved , learning curve fa sure ! The vid mos definatly helps to expose the event (globally) which is cool , but i'm not into big corp-pirate sponsers they might have $$$$ but it's not about $$$ for me & yes we are raising $$ for the park , confused yet i am , leave a comment, it's always good to hear what everyone has to say, you don't have to use your name if you don't want to! (it's about fun on bikes) , I am the organizer/ dude running The Tim Hales Wanaka Shredathon & maybe some of the $$$ Demon paid out for the vid needs to be put back into the community ie Wanaka Sk8 Prk extensions fund mmm yes maybe as that would be the right thang to do, time will tell !
So with all this going on i'm gonna make it really clear that for the future Tim Hales Wanaka Shredathon's there will be NO big bizz/corpirate sponsors EVER !!! This event will remain 100% BMX only !! We BMX's are the industry BMX is owned by BMX'ers these days !! 100 % Rider owned brands , company's , mags as sponsor's an maybe a few small local operations/businesses from the local Wanaka community, gotta hang on to it an keep it underground , an not sell out man !!!! gota keep it real man !!! Ride on !! An remember it's about raising awareness & remembering the late great Tim Hales , R.I.P. brother ! PEACE !
