With Mike stepping down from Pro riding as of last week the guys at BMXFU put together this classic video showing just how savage of a rider Mike was/is as a tribute. He did some amazing moves over the years and we wish Mike all the best with his future endeavours such as Merritt. Mike will still be out killing it no doubt all whilst still reppin’ Colony.
Shuhei is always coming through with some great raw clips. That curved wall setup looks pretty awesome…
Here is the final raw video from our recent trip. Thanks to all the shops and crew that came out for a roll, we had a blast…
So happy to say that I’m back on my bike after what felt like a life time off with a broken hand. it’s still not one hunderd percent but I’Ve been having the best time riding again so that’s all that matters right now. I have filmed a few insta vids at the local that will be up on the Colony insts and my own instagram (mick_bayzand1) soon I am also back working on a edit I started before my injury. If you se me around on the bike come say hi.
So the last two months of 2014 were pretty cool, we had that Avebmx Athens trip, the last one for DVD project so
now it’s just about to be edited! Premiere should be at the end of February. I can’t wait to watch it all on big screen, should be my best video part to date.
Than Vans sent me to London for Rebel Jam , couldn’t really get close to the level of the contest but it was fun and an awesome experience. The afterparty was so heavy that I missed my flight and stay in Kingstone
for few days where we made that tree photo , it was to cold to ride unfortunately.
Now I’m kind of into finishing my study, my music and surviving inside our indoor park till the winter’s gone to hit the streets again.

Yo yo !!
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year !!!!!
My wrist is nearly at 100% !! I have been smashing physio everyday and it’s starting to feel like a normal wrist again. I can pretty much do everything, Just can’t ride… As soon as I can do a few push-ups with out any pain in my wrist I will be back on the bike !!! I can not wait.. I’m pushing so hard, it’s a painful recovery but it’s all worth it.
This week mum I moved from Cleveland to Annerly, at first I wasn’t to excited and was scared to leave my home suburb, But now I love it.. Change is good !! I have so much to explore & a lot of cool people to meet. There’s cool little trendy cafes everywhere and it’s really close to Brisbane city, and super close to the highway.. Kinda of in the middle of everything. My new local is Fairfield skatepark… I’m buzzing about this because it’s a 5 min ride from my house, and it’s one of my favourite parks around. I filmed a 10 clips there yonks ago and there’s a pic from 2010 of a invert in the bowl you can see below.
I also just bought a new camera, the Fuji Film X-E2. It’s a small, light, street style camera that has really fast auto focus. I had a canon 600D, It was amazing when you get the right shot, but I was always missing shots or getting blurry ones.. So this new camera is perfect for quick shots where you don’t have time to set up. I am going to be travelling a lot this year, So this will be perfect to capture all the amazing places I travel to, Quick & easy.. And it sends photo’s directly from the camera to your phone. That was the deal breaker for me!!!
Thanks to @rileypart for tagging me in this portrait he painted of me.. Unreal !!!
The boiz and I ventured into some underground tunnels the other day exploring aswell, Was a cool experience. you can see some photo’s I shot below!! Always check the weather and do your research before doing any of this!
Last weekend I went to my first live Music gig @ the HiFi to see Danny Brown. Was a epic experience…. I am glad i booked tickets, Well worth it.
I am building my bike at Crossley Cycles as you read this, Expect me back on the bike February. I can not wait.
Our youngest shredder on the team, Josh Dove will be hitting up all the stops of this week’s Lil’ Pro’s Tour happening this week in south east Queensland. We’re getting behind the event with free gear for those that enter.
In the mean time, he has an interview up on Fat BMX about it all. Click here to check it out. We know Josh will have a blast at the events & will do well for sure.
Good luck Josh !!

Here is part 3 of our recent trip down the east coast. A sort of behind the scenes look into the 2 days of the trip throughout the ACT, hanging out at Backbone BMX (and Yass).
Riders featured: Chris Courtenay, Bobbie Altiser, Zac Miner, Tom Stretton, Clint Millar, Ricky Cantanzariti and Luke Parker.
Hey guys, just a quick update on what I’m up to.
I recently moved down to Melbourne and in with another Colony rider you all know, Polly. First of all i’d like to say thank you to him because he really has stuck his neck out for me in ways i’d never expect anyone to. much love brother.
It’s been quite a busy time with work and then traveling on the “Have Fun, Ride Bikes” trip. Honestly one of the best trips I’ve been on. Always a treat to spend time with Bobbie Altiser and watch the absolute nonsense that he is capable of on the bike. Big thanks to Millar and Cooper for their hard work, the guys on the trip for being amazing and ever single person that came out to ride with us. What a blast.
Realistically though, I’m just thoroughly enjoying the change and being back on my bike. My ankle is feeling good and since being in Melbourne it’s been a lot easier to film with the main man Cooper Brownlee. Can’t wait to get another edit out for you guys to judge on various social media sites hahaha. Much love.
The 6th annual Blake Butterfield jam is going down this Sunday in Sydney at Menai park. It’s for a great cause so be sure to get down there for a session.
Part 2 of the trip from a video perspective. We spent 3 days travelling south through New South Wales and this video is packed full of riding footage and some good times we had along the way…
It pained me not to be able to make it over for this but Paddy Gross made it down to ride the first annual front brake fiesta in California. Looks like it was a great time for sure. Front brakes are alive !! I hope to make it to the next one. Thanks to Area 43 for hosting the day !!

I worked on the set of China’s next top model on the weekend with Frenchie, got paid a bunch to do basically nothing and just ride and pose for the cameras as the models did there thing. Can’t wait to see the episode, there’s a photo of about twenty Chinese dudes strapping like 100 go-pros to our bikes.
Our French connection Bruno Faucon comes through with a great video for 2014. Thanks to Unleaded for hooking it up.
A bunch of the crew are up in Brisbane right now before we head south for a week. Here are a few random shots from the past couple days. More to come…
