HGMtv East Coast FMX Road Trip Spills Blood on Day 1


Story & Photos by Holtzy

The HGMtv East Coast road trip got underway in usual Homegrown Maniacs style- plenty of action, lots of laughter and a bit of pain.

Loading Bushy's black van with all the necessary tools of a good day- 250cc bike, esky full of beer, fishing rods etc We headed an hour south from Bushy's Wollongong home to "Wandi" to check out up and coming FMX rider Luke "Stono" Stonovich's home compound.

While we were filming Stono tear the place apart Rob Adelberg and Paul "Spud" Spencer turned up as well and a sick FMX session went down. Stono's compound is surrounded by trees so it's good to keep the wind at bay but very hard to get good shots amongst the trees.

Robbie "Maddo" Maddisons compound isn't far away and it's a bit more open for shots. Maddo is still in the USA but he doesn't mind a couple of the boys riding there.

So a decision was made to hit Maddo's where another epic session went down minus Bushy who crashed on his third jump. Bushy was wearing Helmet Cam at the time and captured the whole getoff from a riders view. Let no one say HGM doesn't go the extra mile to really capture the moment. Even our presenters go hard.

We topped the day off by going to a secret dam for a fishing session and nailed some sick fish. The result is an great story for HGMtv. You will have to wait until April to check it out but check out the teaser clip below for a taste and click here for more photos.
