It's been a long trip getting to Shepparton, Australia in order to get here for the first round of the 2020 UCI BMX SX World Cup. Leaving on Thursday to arrive in Australia on Saturday shows some time was spent at airports and in planes. After Matt Holmes had shown me around Sydney for a few hours (thanks Matt, much appreciated), it was off to the Gold Coast to check out some parks over there. Wade Bootes showed me the Beenleigh park, Nerang BMX track, the park with the fullpipe, Nerang's concrete skatepark and Logan Martin's house. After three days on the road it was time to hit the sack. After spending an amazing "Australia day" at the Gold Coast, a 1600 kilometer long road trip in the Cycling Australia van & trailer brought me to Shepparton. Life isn't always as beautiful as it looks on Instagram......
