It was Rockinghams turn to join the Revolution as stop two of the Rev Tour once again featured high quality riding on a near perfect day for FMX.
Bike troubles plagued a number of the riders throughout the day but it didn’t stop Rob Adelberg, Josh Sheehan, Russ Lightfoot, Rob Clohessey and Luke Mulcahy from going nuts. The all ages gig at the start of the day was especially awesome with a truckload of kids screaming themselves silly at every opportunity.

In what is possibly a world first FMX show under the circus bigtop tent the Revolution Tour kicked off in Bunbury in awesome style. With first class FMX, sick bands, mini bikes and of course the Rev Babes it was pretty hard not to enjoy the show and I for one are really looking forward to the next two legs in Rockingham and Kalgoorlie.

A little while back all the crew gathered in freezing cold Narrogin for a ride day and a bit of FMX training for the big Rev Heads event later this year. It was the perfect opportunity for the boys at Launch Helmet Cams to do some field testing of their gear and some filming for the upcoming HGMtv series.
The video clip below shows a little of what the guys came up with that weekend. As you can see they are getting some sick stuff.

Once again the HGMtv crew fired up the battletruck and went on the road chasing more gold for the television series. This time we headed for legend West Oz FMX rider Shane “Towny” Townsends new compound near Donnybrook in south west Western Australia.
Aptly named the “Wasted Talent” compound it features a nice 80ft comp setup plus some dirt doubles, a motocross track and a newly built foam pit.

After the initial successful testing of the Launch/Gath Helmet Cam surf setup we were pretty keen to try it in some good surf. Former World Surfing No 3 Dave Macaulay and myself had both given the camera a few tests in small surf but we had “Unfinished Business” with the whole deal.
For Dave the unfinished business was the need for some big barrels and for me it was to see some of those barrels shown from a surfers point of view.

One of the main goals of HGMtv is that we do a lot of on board footage so that while you are sitting on the couch watching the show you actually get a feel of what it’s like to do the sport you are watching.
