  1. So many top contest placings for decades , an constantly changing riding style ……and still going all out ……i.e. , a silver medal @ the X-Games . Jumelin is one of Flatland’s finest , TIMES 7 . Props to all riders in every class @ this event , too. I remember after my prelim run @ the 2017 Flatland Voodoo Jam Alex was noticed that some of the scuff , twitch -switches I did were kind of similar to the ones he did back when he still did things like that in 1998 . ( I’m a huge fan of that kind of stuff and still do it to this day in links. ) I quickly informed him of one of the hardest , first 540 bar flips ever created ……was his , a backwards half hiker , grab the brake under handed , flip the bars 360 ….and right @ that split -second when the bars are going 540…..he would catch the tire , left cross -K , so he could untwist his wrist and grab the bar regular …..kick the K once ,and jump / stomp to his pedals …..his face was intrigued when I told him this because he’s created , done so many things in Flatland that he forgot about that one and hadn’t done or even thought about it in years , ha……Jumelin rules…………
