Elephant glide into a wall push off the wall, backwards backpacker and out backwards. Giannis Caternellis is always full of surprises, hit play for the 90th episode. Yes 90th episode in his freestyler series!
Dustyn Alt hit me up last night with the details for the up and coming 100 PSI Contest in Dresden, Germany on 1st September. This event always looks fun, get there if you can…
With hard tires, BMX riders from all over Germany and Europe will bring their flatland art to the Elbe on September 1st. Under the motto “BMX Flatland Contest on Asphalt”, what began 30 years ago in parking lots in California will now be carried to the city of Dresden for the seventh time.
As in previous years, the contest area is a 400 m² asphalt area in the middle of the city, with a direct view of the Dresden City Hall. So the drivers have ideal conditions for hot tricks on the tarmac and to present the Dresden audience a completely different form of cycling.
The competition is divided into two classes: amateurs and professionals. Every rider has two runs, which are considered the better run. It starts with the practice of the amateurs at 13:00 clock. The final of the pros will take place around 18:00. The winners of the professional class beckons this year a prize money of 600 €. The amateurs are motivated with thick material prizes to show their tricks.
In the evening, the award ceremony is celebrated, directly in Dresden’s trendy Neustadt district, in the Club Ostpol! So heat tires and not stingy with tricks, dear flatland community. See you in Dresden!

Feels like a while since I dropped an Old School Sundays post, so let’s get back to it with fresh update from the Freestyle BMX Junkies YT account. Today we have Woody Itson’s 1988 AFA Masters run from the Velodrome contest in Carson, CA! Enjoy old school heads…
Back to back Must Watch videos from Jean William Prevost, you all no doubt watched Puro Flat 2 and probably saw the photos of Dub’s no handed gliding two footed death truck doing the rounds on social media and wondered where is the footage? Well, you did not have to wait long, and this trick is so good I think it deserves to be singled out on it’s own so you can appreciate it, and it’s not lost in a full part. Dub is definitely an alien, fitting name for the move!
The annual Over 8 Bar Flatland Camp & Contest is going down Komárom, Hungary. Sponsored by Four Pegs BMX, follow the FB events page and get there if you can.
When I posted the Cory Fester 16 days throwback a couple of weeks ago, I was not expecting to see a visual response but it looks like it’s kick started something within Cory. It is not often I say this anymore, Cory is like one of those ultimate video riders dudes, and like the 16 Days edit he used this “garage sessions” edit to get himself back up to speed. The rumour mill has been going for the past few weeks about Cory sitting on footage for 8 years, I can’t even imagine what he is sitting on, but what almost stokes me out the most is he has a riding spot for the winter. Like a fine wine Cory, take your time buddy and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with for this solo video part. This edit builds and builds as you see his skills improving with each clip, I love the last line a remix of Michael Sommer’s infamous back peg varial to half hiker, Cory puts his own flavour on it. Cory stole the internet today, respect!
