Haki Waller

CRW_0369_4.jpg

Haki was the absolute find of the recent HGMtv/ Freerider MX freeride tour of New Zealand. At 12 years of age he had no problem hucking 140ft on his KX85. While the big boys were impressive hitting these kind of jumps on their 250’s you would hear Haki ringing the guts out of his 85cc from miles away as he got every inch of speed he could out of the machine to clear the gap. It really was mind blowing to see such a cool, humble kid ride so well and as you can see he’s no stranger to a BMX bike either.

While on tour through Queensland for Homegrown Maniacs I was lucky enough to spend a night at Robbie Marshalls place along with Leigh Harriman, Robbie Adelberg, Chris Thomsen and Travis Muratore.
Robbie’s place has it all for dirtbike riders including a motocross track, two supercross tracks, freestyle ramp, dirt hits and hill climbs.

FMX Kaos

FMX Kaos have been an integral part of the underground OZ Freestyle scene for about six years now but it has only been in recent times that main man Ray Hunter and his crew have stepped it up to become a major player Australia wide.

A rider himself, Ray is one of those genuine champion people that really care about the sport of FMX and the people involved in it. In going to see any FMX Kaos show you are supporting the true heart and soul of hardcore FMX.

Queensland's Matt Schubring fought off a high quality field to win the richest FMX competition in the Southern Hemisphere- the $20,000 Freestyle Sports Open held on the picturesque shores of Lake Karapiro on the North Island of New Zealand

Up against the likes of Blake "Bilko" Williams and Cam Sinclair from Australia and Kiwi's Nick Franklin, Luke Smith, Luke Price and Levi Sherwood it was always going to be a difficult event to win.

CARVING THE DUNES

When West Oz FMX rider Shane "Towny" Townsend rang to let me know he was heading to the legendary Lancelin Dunes just north of Perth it didn’t take me long to agree to come along. Visions of those perfect snow white dunes and blue skies immediately appeared in my head and the good news was the weather for the day was predicted to be perfect.

Black Duck Valley in Queensland is arguably the best dirt bike park in Australia. Boasting several motocross tracks, 50 tracks, freestyle ramps and even one of Seth’s long distance ramps plus camping facilities all set in a beautiful area there is something there for everyone.

New Zealand Whip Fest

The second leg of the Freerider MX/HGMtv New Zealand was a mind blowing whip fest at one of NZ best motocross tracks near Lake Taupo.
With Levi Sherwood resting a sore shoulder and ankle after aggravating an old injury at the last stop of the tour it was left to top NZ racers Rhys Carter (No 733) and Nick Saunders (No 909) to whip it flat for the cameras. The session was pretty bloody epic. There's not much more to say so I will leave the photos to tell the story.

Robbie "Maddo" Maddison

Story & Photos by Holtzy
This story and interview was recorded by me in Temecula, California a couple of years ago when I spent a few weeks living with Maddo and his then fiancee Amy as they battled hard to crack the US market. At that stage Maddo was in the early stages of preparing for his first crack at the world record distance jump and was still relatively unknown to anyone but hardcore FMX riders. Since then he's gone on to break the world record longest distance jump several times (including 378ft in practice which is the unofficial world record) plus backflipping the river Thames in England and of couse his amazing step up and step down jump on the exact replica of the Arc de Triumph in France.
Maddo is the modern day Evil Knievel. He is a classic Aussie Underground Legend gone huge and a damn fine human being. Legend is too small a word to describe what this man has achieved.

25 year old Brad Landers burst onto the FMX at the recent gathering of the tribe down in Esperance when he came out of nowhere to be just the second person in West Australia to land a backflip and the first to land more than one as well as the first to land any sort of backflip combo.
