247 Bigtime: Summer Time in Australia Dec 7, 2012

Faz was in Brisbane, Australia for nearly a month visiting family and friends. While there, he put together a video showcasing some of the rad rides he took part of!

  • Now Australia is upside-down AND backwards.  

    Kidding, I’m just jealous.  Are all the lanes that wide?!

  • Yes, they’re made extra wide because that’s where we store ourdead kangaroos.

  • The beach is Noosa, about 70 miles north of Brisbane (i’m lucky enough to live near there). The bit where the guy is skateboarding is the new sports ground with 2 soccer fields (who cares) and an AWESOME new crit track, did a race there 2 nights ago and it is SOO much fun!

    And just FYI, helmets are mandatory in Australia, so if you’re gunna ride without one like in the video be prepared for a fine if a cop picks you up on it, about $70.

    • A road crit track or a velodrome?

      • Road crit track. It’s huge! Nosa beach is a place to live. 3 world champ live there at the moment with about 100 people on their regular ride on the weekend. Thanks for the post Mr John!

  • What is that song that is playing?
