CBBC star Rhys Stephenson will make his Strictly Come Dancing debut on Saturday, following in the footsteps of fellow CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual.

“I am BUZZING to be a part of Strictly Come Dancing 2021. I have dreamed of being on this show and I know for a fact that it will exceed all expectations,” he said.

“I can’t wait to see everything: the costumes, the orchestra, even Craig’s look! I’m ready!”

When asked what kind of flamboyant costumes he hoped to wear during his time on the show, Rhys said, “I want something with a cape… A cape commands respect.”

But he added that he’s not that bothered as long as the outfits he’s donated are “epic.”

And in addition to juggling his busy schedule, Rhys will also be making appearances on CBBC, where he’s usually seen alongside Hacker the Dog.

Actor and children’s television presenter Rhys is best known as the face of the children’s television channel CBBC

“I’m always going to be on the channel, I can’t just give up on CBBC,” he said.

“I probably won’t be around as much, obviously because I will repeat it, but I can’t stay away from Hacker the Dog that long.”

Rhys says he’s been wanting to do Strictly ever since he saw Jay McGuinness perform his iconic jive on Pulp Fiction.

“We didn’t watch Strictly in the House at the time, but my dad just randomly turned on the TV, and I remember saying ‘Oh, this is Pulp Fiction, that’s pretty cool'” , he told the Mirror.

“And I sat there and they just exploded and my jaw hit the ground and honestly in this dance I thought, ‘I need to watch the whole show and I need to see him win.’ , and I stuck with it all the time and after that I became a big fan.

Rhys fell in love with Strictly when he saw Jay McGuinness play

In a previous interview with the BBC, Rhys revealed he had an excruciating injury after a motorcycle accident.

“I was injured in the event of my ATV falling, I ended up with a hole in my foot! he revealed in the game of ‘Three Truths and Three Lies’.

He also admitted that he had previously participated in “goat yoga” and f blow up the roof of his friend trying to get a soccer ball.

In July of this year, Rhys became an Ambassador for Place2Be, a charity that works for children’s mental health, and he visited a school for a special workshop where the kids made a time capsule.

Rhys said of his visit: “There is a lot of trauma, but I was struck by the hope and the laughter that we also felt. I have the impression of having seen the heart of Place2Be through these children.

A six-year-old student told Rhys that the workshop was very helpful, saying, “I went to Place2Be because I was worried, then afterwards I didn’t feel worried. “

Olivia Reynolds’ parents bought her first motocross bike when she was three

Olivia Reynolds’ parents bought her first motocross bike when she was three years old, but they “didn’t expect her to excel this far in the sport.

Eight years later, she and her family were taken to America in October by Travis Pastrana, one of the biggest names in motocross and frontman of the famous group Nitro Circus.

It all started when Olivia and her dad, Ben, submitted a video of stuff to the group following a social media call and after that they requested another longer clip to show what the 11 year old child could do.

Eight years later, she and her family were taken to America in October by Travis Pastrana, one of the biggest names in motocross and frontman of the famous group Nitro Circus.

After hearing nothing for a few months, they woke up to thousands of social media notifications a day after Nitro Circus shared the video – with fans of the group calling on Travis to invite Olivia to the United States.

“He got in touch and said to me ‘practice your backflips on the trampoline and I’ll fly over you as soon as Covid is gone so you can do one on your bike.’ We’ve spoken to him since and we were due to fly over in March, but there was no way, ”said Ben Reynolds, Olivia’s father.

They are expected to arrive in America on October 6 if all goes according to plan.

“It’s a dream come true,” said Olivia, who lives in Moulton with her family.

She started competing in 2019. Of her first three championships, she won two and finished second in the other.

Getting Olivia into races has never been at the forefront of the family’s minds, but more and more people have started to comment on her speed and advise on the next step in the competition.

Ben said: “The main reason she started biking was to watch random boobies get up and do backflips, which is why it’s something she always wanted to do.

“All she wants is to get better at tricks and stunts, and that’s why she’s been spotted by the greatest of all time.”

He “couldn’t believe what he was looking at” when she entered her first race against 30 boys and had placed in the top 10 by the end of the weekend.

It wasn’t until Olivia had a big enough bike with gears that she was able to backflip, and now the time is right.

The family have been invited to spend the day with Travis Pastrana and his rally team when they visit the UK for the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​in July.

Travis said he had “big plans and big ideas” for their visit to America and that they were going to make it “really special” for Olivia.

“The way Olivia was talking to him blew him away even more,” said Ben.

“She’s really confident she can do a backflip. All she owns the bikes for is backfliping and being silly on it – and in a way, she’s really fast.

“As soon as Travis mentions doing a backflip to the adult professionals he knows, they put their bikes away. As he said, Oliva could be the future of the sport and it’s exciting to see.

One day Olivia wants to be a women’s motocross world champion and hold as many freestyle tricks records as possible.

If she achieves her dream of doing a backflip on her motocross bike, she will hold the Guinness World Record as the youngest woman to do so.

She is also aiming to win the Mini O’s contest in which they participate in America in November, and the great American amateur contest, Loretta Lynn’s, next year.

Ben added, “As long as she keeps smiling and doing what she loves, that’s all that matters.”

She currently competes nationally in the UK, placing in the top five or six with the boys each time, but the family believe she will excel a lot more in America where the girls’ racing pool is much bigger.

“Olivia fills me and her mother with so much pride. I have never met a child so passionate about anything in my life, ”said Ben.

“Everywhere we go people are saying how good she is, but also how well behaved and respectful she is.

“There are a lot of kids who could take this experience for granted and let it go to their heads, but Olivia doesn’t hesitate.

“The only thing that worries her is that her bike is ready to go.

“If she keeps that head on her shoulders, she can go as far as she wants.”

Jalalabad: A bicycle explosion in the city of Jalalabad in Fazilka district late Wednesday night claimed the life of the biker and injured another. The incident sparked panic among residents, approaching a red alert in the state.
According to an eyewitness, the powerful explosion occurred when the bicycle – a five-year-old Bajaj Platina model – was near the Punjab National Bank. The rider, Balwinder Singh aka Luv (23) from Jhugge Nihanga Wala in Ferozepur, was thrown several meters into the air and died instantly. The injured passer-by was referred to Faridkot Medical College in critical condition.
Security agencies are examining whether the explosion was a well-planned plot or an accident. The motorcycle that exploded did not have a license plate. The agencies are also investigating whether there was a link between this explosion and the recent tiffin bomb case at a store in Ferozepur, in which the store was reportedly emptied after criminals set it on fire by putting chemicals on it. night.
DIG, Ferozepur range, JS Aulakh, SSP Fazilka Deepak Hillori and forensic teams from Mohali visited the site on Thursday. Police also confiscated a locked motorcycle parked near the site of the explosion. It is expected that the investigation into this matter may be handed over to the NIA soon.
The deceased’s sister, Jyoti, claimed he was coming to meet her when the explosion took place. Police, after collecting the details of the deceased’s cell phone call, also began investigating his family members. DSP Jalalabad Palwinder Singh claimed that the parked motorcycle belonged to a certain Sukha, who is the cousin of the deceased and from the same border village. There was unconfirmed reports on Thursday evening that the police caught Sukha.
Auto maintenance experts said that although it is rare for such an explosion to occur, a spark in the motorcycle’s spark plug could have caused a fire in the engine area, causing the fuel tank to explode.
Meanwhile, police sources said the cousins, who were facing cases under the excise law, left for Jalalabad on two bikes on Wednesday.
Fazilka SSP Deepak Hillori said it was too early to say anything and the case was under investigation.
This is the second explosion in the Punjab in a month. Earlier on August 8, an explosion occurred in an oil tanker in Ajnala, Amritsar district.

The roads of the Sunshine Coast have become a gallery for finalist works for the Sunshine Coast Art Prize, a nationally recognized regional prize.

Through a partnership between Coastline BMW and Sunshine Coast Council, drivers could ride to the traffic lights behind a BMW G 310 R motorcycle wrapped in Franky Howell’s stunning color like a disco thang or a BMW 3 Series art car wrapped in Mirraa Kamarra by Agnes Kohler.

The art car and motorcycle pay homage to the iconic BMW Art Car project, a long-standing artistic series introduced in 1975 by French racing driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain.

Sunshine Coast Council Community Portfolio Advisor Rick Baberowski said the Art Cars and Motorcycles initiative was a creative side step to bring art out of the gallery and onto the streets in an unusual way and exciting.

“As wonderful pattern shapes, the chosen artwork lends itself perfectly to being applied as an intriguing new skin to vehicles and should definitely attract more attention and start conversations as people see them on the streets,” said Cr Baberowski.

“The Sunshine Coast Art Prize is our region’s flagship art prize and the eye-catching vehicles help raise awareness of this excellent exhibition of contemporary Australian artwork.

“While the winner of the award has yet to be announced, the public’s choice voting is open until September 19 and can be completed online, with winners from all categories to be revealed on September 23. “

Coastline BMW Senior Dealer Brad Butcher said Coastline BMW has been an active member of the Sunshine Coast arts community for over 25 years, pursuing BMW’s passion for the arts.

“The Art Car initiative was first introduced by BMW and is a proud tradition that Coastline BMW upholds; cars are a captivating symbol of the Sunshine Coast Art Prize and a striking addition to the streets of the Sunshine Coast. We look forward to continuing the partnership in the years to come. said M. Boucher.

Caloundra Regional Gallery Director and Curator Jo Duke said the council had partnered with Coastline BMW to select the finalist artwork that would function as a premium vehicle wrap in a dynamic setting.

“We’re thrilled with the result – the works of Agnes Kohler and Franky Howell use color and pattern to bring incredible vibrancy and energy to BMWs both on the move or sitting fairly parked on the street.” Mrs. Duke said.

Franky Howell is a Victorian 2D artist and said Color like a disco thang is the latest in a series of works in progress.

“These latest large Flashe paintings continue my interest in three-dimensional play with flat, hard abstract shapes,” Mr. Howell said.

“I’m interested in both an intuitive and analytical approach to creating shapes that warp in the process, creating complex and confusing spaces. Painted with graphic flatness, saturated colors and distorted planes, these works give the viewer a heightened sense of contradiction and confusion.

Agnes Kohler said about her Mirraa Kamarra artwork, that there were rocks of different colors that can be found on Bentinck Island. In his Kayardild language, they call them mirraa (pretty) kamarra (rocks).

The Sunshine Coast Art Prize is an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Council and is sponsored by major funding partner Argon Law Sunshine Coast, longtime supporters and sponsors – De Deyne Family, Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, Coastline BMW, Montville Country Cabins and International Art Services (IAS), and is presented in partnership with the Council’s Horizon Festival.

The Sunshine Coast Art Prize exhibition runs until October 10 at the Caloundra Regional Gallery, 22 Omrah Avenue and online at gallery.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au

Entrance to the gallery is free and group reservations are welcome. The Caloundra Regional Gallery is owned and operated by the Sunshine Coast Council and is a facility accessible to all.

At the 2021 Malverns Classic, we spotted Privateer’s new electric bike. The British brand of pragmatic bikes from the same people behind the Hunt wheels, they have already brought the successful 141 trail bike and the 161 enduro bike to the market at a great price. So when I noticed these guys had an electric bike in the works, I had to see it for myself. For a bit more information, there have been footage of the E161 floating around on social media, piloted by Privateer’s EWS pilot Matt Stuttard. These were the first generation of bikes with 29-inch front and rear wheels, essentially a 161 with a Shimano motor and a bigger down tube containing the battery. That was exactly a year ago, things have since changed, so we checked with Privateers Sam Meegan to find out what changed with the E161 and when it will likely be available.

Okay, so the E161 is in a state of completion. It’s been a battle to get it here, hasn’t it?

So we prepared it for the launch of Shimano EP8 last September. We started to ride it, it wasn’t quite right. Then at Christmas we kept riding and made the pretty tough decision to go, no something’s wrong here we have to change that. Then we hit the COVID peak with some crazy supply chain issues, hence the reason it’s still somewhat unfinished, but it’s very close to the finished bike.

So what have you changed from the first version?

We changed it to a mule setup and the 27.5 “wheel at the rear changed it a bit. Then we tweaked the suspension kinematics slightly and just tidied up a few small pieces of cable routing. The other big change was to change the helmet from the 1.8 “. We thought the 1.8 “headset was going to be very important with e-bikes, but that didn’t really take off, so we went back to the standard 1.5” tapered head tube.

You went from 29 to mule. Was it just a sensation while you were riding it?

Yeah, it was just with the rear wheel of the 29er that we could only bring it to 460mm chainstay. We try to make the shrouds proportionate by size so that everyone can ride with the same kind of feel. The two smaller sizes would have to be 460mm chainstays, so that wasn’t exactly great. We were trying to ride it and it wasn’t maneuverable because of the front end and it wasn’t particularly fun to ride. We just struggled to make it as handy as we wanted it to be. We went down to the rear of the mule which now allows us to switch to 445mm long chainstays in the smaller model. It just makes it more nimble and with the extra weight you have from the battery and motor, you don’t need the stability that long chainstays provide, so bringing it back actually makes it look more like the standard 161. .

Have you made a bike that looks like your 161 enduro bike but with a motor in it?

That’s basically what it was, Matt had the 161 like in his enduro racing bike, and we just developed it to look like his enduro racing bike but he could do more laps uphill and downhill. Yes it was indeed his enduro training tool, it is what it was, it is something that has always been intended, but now it has become something that people will eventually be able to buy. .

We have already mentioned it a lot, how important was Matt Stuttard in the development of this bike?

Matt was crucial for the development. He rode a huge amount of miles in this bike and when we told him we might have to take it back to exchange it for a new frame he was like “How long will I be without my bike? electric ?! ” So yeah, he loves it, to say the least.

[/PCOLUMNS]

So much more of the same from Privateer, building kit wise, still at a good price?

We are hopefully aiming for a price tag of around £ 5,500 to £ 5,700. We have a very similar build kit to the Shimano 161 which is a mix of XT and SLX. We use the XT shifter instead of the SLX shifter because the XT shifter gives it the nice shifting feel and the multi-click function, then the full SLX for things that are almost consumable to fine regards, like the mech and the cassette. We went with the Hayes Dominion A4 brakes which we just got a big fan of, lots of power, lots of modulation and it’s going to have big rotors on it. For the E-enduro wheelset this is a new, slightly wider wheelset, we are going for a new rim which we are in the process of developing to be similar to the current B2 wide enduro wheelset. . It will have the E-enduro hubs which are really big, beefy, steel axles and steel freehubs and the spokes are also a bit thicker and are still triple butted but just a thicker gauge so overall. built for durability.

What’s important with Privateer is that it’s about durability and when the bike takes a beating it keeps coming back for more. Is it more the same here?

Absolutely, every part we tried to put on it was something we would choose over other parts, for example we went with the Fox 38 performance Elite rather than the factory version as it effectively does the job. same as the factory. I don’t have the Kashima coating. We use a OneUp dropper seat post because it runs all the time and you can adjust the stroke, it has the shortest stack height and is simple to maintain. It’s just about trying to get the right bits. Then the other elements such as the rod, etc. are kind of personal preference. We have used our own brand items and try to keep up with the priorities, for example if you get the right tires, brakes and suspensions you have a set base and everything else can be swapped out and changed as you like. The tires will be Maxxis rather than Schwalbe, but there will be Maxxis Assegai up front with a DHR 2 rear both in the drop box, which comes standard.

What about the motor – which motor and which battery are you using?

Shimano EP8 motor with 630 watt battery. We worked on a custom bash guard on the E161. We’ve found that most bash guards are plastic which is good if you just slide over something, but if it gets impacted it doesn’t work so well. Matt made one out of sheet metal just bolted to the bottom, which worked fine, but we thought we could do something a little more appealing, so Dan, our engineer, whipped this one up and it’s pretty good.

I know it’s hard to say with all the supply chain issues, but when do you think it will launch?

By the end of next year, hopefully at some point. From fall to winter; it’s a very vague thing, but at some point next year, at the end of next year.

So how do you deal with supply chain issues? Obviously you are not a massive company, you are not one of the big brands, are you having any problems with that?

It was hard, really hard. I’m just trying to order stuff. We started Privateer just as COVID really kicked off and it’s been kind of like a catch-up since. We were trying to be reasonable with the specs, picking the right specs, but sometimes the cassette can be out of stock for a year or two, so you kind of have to swap and change, which we try to keep consistent as well. as possible. But sometimes the bikes had to change a few bits and pieces just to get it out. We always opt for equivalent or better specifications. But it was really hard. It also slows down development a lot; for example, this bike should be out now. It should be available in the market because normally you get samples in a couple of months and it takes a year to get the samples through the door, go back and get all the things you need to build it. Many of these parts are from the original sample because you cannot get another to replace it. The development of shock was also difficult. Trying to adjust the shocks for the bike, try it out and then say oh no it’s not quite true, can we get this one instead, and everyone is just busy. It slows everything down, not just the sales of new bikes, but the development of things to come because we can’t get a product fast enough to develop and test it.

Okay, so that the Fox X2 sits right in the middle of the suspension, is it tailor-made for you?

Yeah, we’ve worked pretty closely with Fox on different shock tunes and stuff. So yeah, this one is the one they sent us based on our cutscene. Now we’re going to be doing some more riding over the next few weeks and months and make sure it should be that way.

What’s the next step for the bike?

So we’ll be putting it to the test soon because this bike hasn’t been ridden yet – it was built on Wednesday night. The final sample arrived on Wednesday, right after lunch, then we had to hurry to build it as we left Thursday morning. So more driving and testing.

There are plenty of e-bikes to choose from, but in case you’re fed up with more traditional models, you might be interested in the CrownCruiser, an electric bike with a futuristic look. it gives us major and major vibes of Tron, so if this is your jam, maybe this could be the electric bike for you.

The CrownCruiser will feature a carbon fiber frame. This means that the bike itself is both light and strong. It is said to be 40% lighter than aluminum and has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than other materials like steel and titanium. In fact, the creators of the CrownCruiser back the use of carbon fiber which they give customers a lifetime warranty on the frame itself.

It also features a top speed of 31mph which is slow compared to a regular motorcycle or car, but for an electric bike it is relatively fast. Its creators also promise that the CrownCruiser’s electric motor is good for a range of 100 miles before needing a recharge. Speaking of batteries, the CrownCruiser battery is swappable, so you can always replace it with a new one when the old one runs out.

The CrownCruiser is also a smart electric bike with built-in sensors capable of detecting a sudden fall or impact, giving users the ability to call for help and send them your location. There is currently one day left in CrownCruiser’s Indiegogo campaign, so this is your last chance to participate before it’s too late.

Sold out within hours, CAKE’s new limited-edition electric motorcycle, made in collaboration with Buster + Punch of London, launched today and looks like it’s coming from the future. The £The 18,000 vehicle includes all of the typical Swedish bike company features, but unlike the sleek utility aesthetic that encompasses many of their previous models, this version gets a unique upgrade with an electrifying purple chassis and new advanced materials. With Buster + Punch’s passion for bold design, inspired by the East London subcultures, it’s a natural partnership that results in a fiery creation that is explicitly innovative, inside and out. ‘outside.

With a single charge, the bike has a range of three hours and is equipped with a 110 kW power pack. A true torque machine, the CAKE Electric peaks at 90 km / h. Although not street legal, this bike is light and quiet, using an Öhlins air fork and rear link shock absorber suspension.

While the motor may be quiet, the Cake Electric’s look is anything but. Custom-designed parts (many of which come from the solid and rare metals used in Buster + Punch’s interior products), batteries, fenders, custom cockpit details and rim castings receive full attention from Buster + Punch to details. In fact, no part of her style has been overlooked. From classic monogrammed and diamond-cut knurling to custom solid footrests and brake levers to iconic coin screws, the design of the CAKE Electric is unlike any other on the market.

Buster + Punch founder Massimo Buster Minale has an affinity for two-wheelers, having customized several bikes in his garage in Shoreditch, so the project was a dream come true. “The custom bike and the lifestyle that goes with it are in my blood,” he explains. “Taking something off the shelf and evolving it to fit a specific type of person is one of the most tested and satisfying design processes. And that’s certainly evident with this vibrating bike.
