  • Michael Robinson assessed his new prototype Turbo as being awesome. It is solid, stiff, great in the air and had a nice steep head angle to work the tight turns. It is the lightest alloy frame that I have ridden. I am looking forward to riding it hard again when I hook up with team mate Blake Schofield in WA for the next big Probikx round later on this month.

  • Both Michael Robinson and Blake Schofield made their debut on Turbo Bike Co. at the 2012 Nerang Nats and BMXA Probikx rounds held on the Queensland, Gold Coast.

    Day one had both riders flying which got them all the way to the semi finals out of almost 40 riders. Luck wasn't with them with both Blake and Michael missing a transfer spot into the main with 5th place finishes.

    Day two was another tough day at the office with both riders bombing out in their quarter finals. Michael was in fourth going into the last turn in his quarter when has was passed and missed the cut.

    Blake Schofield backed up for the pro race on Sunday. His day ended when he crashed hard in the first turn and got run over and was taken to the St Johns tent with mild concussion.
