Mick Bayzand trip update

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Mick continues to run wild in the bushlands of northern Queensland…

Hey all! It’s Mick here letting you guys know what other adventures I’ve been up to. Kimberly and I drove into Byfield National State Forest just outside of Rockhampton. We lived in the rainforest fending for ourselves for a good while. I have to say, this was probably one of the best parts of the trip so far. We hiked along the rocks of the creek and got ourselves lost in the forest. I got to free climb some pretty cool rock faces before leading us through our own trails. We spent our nights by the campfire drinking goon, and I carved myself a couple tools for survival. We really got in touch with the more primitive sides of life. We chilled with a couple of crazy looking frogs, a bilby, and some other kind of marsupial my girlfriend thinks is said to be extinct. It was pretty amazing a part from having to shower out of breakfast bowls, but that’s all part of living in a rainforest. Stay tuned for our next adventures. Peace.

Jibs interivew.

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

One of the main newspapers here in Melbourne The Age, hit us up with a bit of an interview about King of the Jibs. This was published in the Sunday paper and I think they did alright with it, usually articles written by people who have no idea what BMX is about end up all tacky but this seems alright. Have a read and see you on Saturday…

Belco…

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

On my way down to Melbourne for this weekends Ausbike trade show & the King of the Jibs 2 & dropped into Canberra yesterday to check out the new park at Belconnen. Met up with Zac & Tom with the Afray guys. Wow, so much stuff there in one park. Worth the drive down for sure. The Canberra locals are lucky to have such a different park to ride.
