Just Tricks is one of the first and longest running Freestyle teams in Brisbane. In 1979 Allen Newton, one of the original Redlands BMX Club founders, formed the team where the riders performed hundreds of shows at schools, fetes, premieres, motor shows, BMX events and famously at World Expo 88.
According to Allen Newton’s journal, Just Tricks performed at Sandgate State School 27 years ago today.
