The conveyor belt of daily bangers from Scott Powell continues, let me go out on a limb and say this might just be one of the craziest yet. And there has been a hell of a lot, what is coming tomorrow???
I don’t know about you, but the passing of Seiji Sakata is still a big shock for me. Giannis Caternellis just sent in the first of what I hope are many tributes towards the man. Here’s what he had to say:
“On April 28th I posted Originalidade #6 part 3 which I dedicated to Seiji Sakata for his battle with cancer. Even in my worst nightmare I wouldn’t imagine that I will make exactly one month later a video in his memory….
I met Seiji on my first contest in Flatground 2004 and I remember him as a hunle guy and a very stylish rider setting today’s trend with his brakeless links. This is how I will remember him forever.
Here is the video I dedicate to Seiji Sakata for his memory, “Afypnisis” which is a greek word and means “wake up call”, because we need to wake up and see what is important in life, and this is our family, our people who they love us for what we are and nothing else matters.”
Day 26 of Scott Powell’s Decade Anthology series, and :The borage of quadruple variations continues”. Today’s treat is a Bar-split Decade to Triple Windshield Wiper, no deadtime at all between the bar split decade and the triple windshield wiper! Absolutely amazing, and great to see in 2017 that new variations are coming out in flatland with brakes.
Congrtulations to Jean William Prevost who took the top spot at yesterdays opening qualifying round at Fise World Montpellier, followed by Jorge “Viki” Gomez, and Benjamin Hudson. Semi finals today at 1:30..
Fise is celebrating their 20th anniversary this weekend in Montpellier, France. Hervé André-Benoît (creator of FISE) and Dr. Didier Jourdan (Director of Montpellier Business School) reveal how FISE started back in 1997 and how it is still a huge success 20 years later.
