Tim Wood- BMX Vert Legend

CRW_0391.jpg

Tim Wood is a true Aussie legend. 34 years young and he’s still one of the finest BMX Vert riders Australia has produced and still untill this day is one of the few people in the world who can pull off a 900 air. His home near Brisbane is truly a BMX riders paradise with an 11 foot halfpipe, a 14 foot halfpipe with 11 foot roll in plus a full indoor street course. All of which he built himself with a little help from friends.

Story & Photos by Holtzy

24yr old Valyside team rider Steve Sommerfeld from Tiaro in Queensland is the Mr Nice Guy of Australian FMX. Steve is a very good FMX rider with a big bag of tricks and thanks to plenty of time on the dirt jumps at home and at Matt “Schuie” Schubring’s place he’s a good natural terrain rider as well. The proof being a recent first place at the 2008 New Zealand Farm Jam natural terrain event.

20yr old Rob Adelberg from Benalla in Victoria is arguably the first of the new age FMX riders. At a baby faced 14yrs of age he got his first photos in Freerider MX mag busting out killer grab tricks on a CR80 and from that time on he has steadily progressed to be one of the finest riders in Australia.

Story, Photo's and Video by Holtzy

"Scary" Mary Perkins from Tauranga on the North Island of New Zealand is the Queen of FMX worldwide. Not only is she one of the very few female riders that can do FMX tricks over a 75ft jump but she also holds the Guiness Book of Records longest jump ever by a female on a motorbike which is 159.4ft.

Haki Waller

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.
