Nathan Parker’s dirt-jump-jam.

Lots of work has gone into this backyard dirt-jump setup near Adelaide in South Australia. Nathan did an awesome job getting these things smooth and ready to go for a bunch of people who turned up on a Sunday afternoon. Even with enough lights to ride well into the night. I’m sure to see more from this place in the future with another return line planned and Nathan keen to make things bigger and better. Well done mate, it was a great night with some guys who love what you got going on here.

Adelaide City Dirt Octoberfest 2013

 Octoberfest Jam at Adelaide CIty Dirt was on yesterday. Here are my photos from the day. The first image is from early on in the morning before the crowds came down. Being Australia’s only public jumps park in a city is a very cool thing, and the builders have done an amazing job. citydirt_empty_october_2013Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bnw_3table_webresAdelaide_citydirt_OCT13_cornerhip_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_backflip_over_rider_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_360look_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bradmas_superman_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_3dip_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_3click_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bnw_tbog_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_onefoot_onehand_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_onefoot_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_hip_train_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_snm_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_nohands_webres

The last two years.

Right. I have 63 photos to show you that haven’t made it onto this webpage yet. They are either forgotten images, they didn’t make the cut at the time or they have been put up elsewhere and never made it here. I will be dumping 10 or so images at a time untill i have the full 63 uploaded. This will give you a good flow of pictures for the week or whatever. I’ll try to give a title or description on each photo so you have an idea about it, or some backstory to ‘paint’ a better picture in your head. They are all from my time in North Western Australia over the Last two years. Mostly the Pilbara and a couple from Exmouth. Enjoy…

Karratha dirtjumps

These set of dirt jumps, built over a year ago now, have been fixed up and been running pretty good recently. I’ve been down with Brad taking some pictures of him on his bike. He’s a pretty talented rider and dedicated to digging and riding while in town, so i’ll be down there taking a lot more photos for sure.ktowndirt_bmx_b&w_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bmx_nofootcan_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bmx_superman2_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bmx_turndown_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bmx_superman1_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bmx_jump_jan13_webres ktowndirt_bradlegs_webres ktowndirt_brad360_webres
