I am stoked to announce Brisbane based sign company Hicks Sign Co has joined the list of sponsors for the Unscene Exhibit.
Glynn is one of the few riders in Brisbane who has been riding non-stop for over 30 + years. As a Dutton Park local he grew up with his brother Dean riding the famous Red Hill dirt jumps and racing at some of the early BMX tracks, including Windsor and Redlands. In 1985 Glynn was performing Freestyle shows with Johnny Chopper owner/fabricator Gary Winmill at shopping centres and school fetes. He was also seen on the children’s TV program Boris’s Breakfast Club launching off a rickety quarter pipe. For a period Glynn also skated and was featured in local skate rags and regularly sessioned the mini ramp in his back yard.
Glynn continued his Pro BMX career during the 1990’s and worked for his own business Hicks Sign Co. Most afternoons Glynn was seen building and riding the dirt jumps on the Brisbane Corso with the Fairfield and Yeronga crew, so much so the locals named them the Glynn Jumps. Glynn also screen printed the first batch of Prody t-shirts and hand cut vinyl decals for three of the Prody frames.
These days Glynn still races and runs Hicks Sign Co. With his passion and dedication for BMX he also operates Prosixtyfive – a store dedicated to buying, selling and restoring old BMX gear. Just recently Glynn placed 3rd in the 45+ Mens Cruisers at the BMX National Championships.
