Love it or hate it, everyone’s seems to have an opinion on @mattjonesmtb’s Dab Flip at @farm_jam 2018.
For me it’s not about what’s cool or not, it’s about having a damn good time and expressing yourself on your bike. And in that respect, Matty’s got everyone covered; he knows how to put a smile on people’s faces and always has one on his. Happiness is contagious. 🀘🏻

While we all wait for #whipitwednesday, here’s @tylerbereman looking silky smooth over the #frewfarm hills as the last remnants of golden light brush the grass atop the @farm_jam #freeride area.
Such an epic session. I’ll be holding off my A-rollers for the magazines but even the b-rolls are pretty crispy. πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Holy hell @farm_jam was good. Super-rad to meet legend blokes like @r_doggystyles here, and watch him steeze his way to the Best Style award in the #MTB class.
Currently verrrryyy deep into editing 1000+ photos but pretty chuffed with how they’re looking so far! 🀘🏻

@farm_jam 2018 yesterday was mental! So many insane moments across the board but these guys, @loganmartinbmx, @andrewjackson2 and @mattjonesmtb were on another level. Epic day, epic vibes, epic riding and epic good times. Mega props to @danfrew and @brettfrew for being such GCs and always organizing such a killer day. Bring on 2020! πŸ˜€πŸ€˜πŸ»πŸ€˜πŸ»

Did a rad interview with former junior world champ, 2015 MX2 champ and all-round good bugger @jaywilson_6 about the roller-coaster journey he’s been on and the year ahead for @motoonline yesterday. Link’s in my bio!

Confirmed! We’re stoked that two-time #mtb champ and all-round good bugger @mattjonesmtb is returning for the three-peat in 2018. Have you seen his latest @redbull edit β€œFrames of Mind”? So insane... google it if you haven’t checked it out yet! See you on Feb 3, Matty! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» πŸ“·: @makkreative

The new issue of @freestylextreme mag is out with two ripper features in there from me - one with @ferriswheel111 on his incredible year and plans to jumpstart his international career again, and another with Aussie #fmx upstart @harrybink! Thanks heaps for the good chats and honesty, lads.
Link to the digital version of the mag is in my bio. 🀘🏻

Well today took a bit of a crazy trip back in time. I found an old memory card in my camera bag that had a whole bunch of shots from 2010 on it, from back in my @freeridermx days! Here’s a very young @mosig8 (#48 back then) about to arc one on sunset at his home track. I’ll post a few more of these forgotten files over the next few days - there are some pretty rad #mx shots in there!

In today’s WTF news, it looks like there won’t be any South Island rounds in the 2018 NZ MX β€œNationals”. Poor form not to see the @backflipsdirtfarm on the calendar! πŸ€¬πŸ˜ πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

Seen the latest issue of @adbmagazine? I’ve written a feature about the biggest moments of the @mxnationals, and got a couple of snaps in there too, like this wee ripper of @e_mastin4 and @wilsontodd2 going toe-to-toe for the championship at the final round. ✊🏻✊🏻

Had an awesome chat with this legend, @ferriswheel111, last night about racing, family and the future for an upcoming magazine feature. Keep an eye out for it; it's going to be a good 'un!

@wilsontodd2 holding it wide with the MX2 title on the line in the final race at Coolum. Two laps later he'd wash out in this very corner and hand the championship to @e_mastin45 (in the background). Really felt for him afterwards, but that's racing and he'll be back hungry for redemption in 2018. πŸ’ͺ🏻
