Hiroshi Denton kindly uploaded a bonus stage from yesterdays Shonan Bicycle Festival contest that Moto Sasaki won! Watch out for Moto’s hitch kickflip in this one at 3:54.
Hiroshi had this to say about the event:
“Just like last year, all riders in the Pro finals were given a 30 second bonus stage to show off their new or best tricks with no deductions to points even if they screw up. If they were successful, they were given a maximum of 20 points as a bonus.”
The annual Shonan Bicycle Festival contest went down today in Kanagawa, Japan! Congratulations to Moto Sasaki taking the win, followed by Bekko and Yoshinori Ai! Check out the highlights for that amazing diversity in riding styles we all love about japan!

Non rider, Lavergne Julien put together this amazing edit that tells us all some of the ideas behind the ABC of Flatland event. I don’t normally run the descriptions much on Flatmatters, but this one was a good one!
“ABC of Flatland is a student’s project which is born in January 2013. This idea was to create a BMX international tournament. Lead by Kevin MEYER, a BMX professional rider, and students, this project came alive.
EDA (Ensemble-dynamisons-Alençon) helped us by giving us all the ressources to create this international event.
The success of the 2013-2014 edition, make it possible for this year 2014-2015. The riders of last year were so pleased with the atmosphere, they decided to come back this year.
Our goal is to make of Alençon the meeting point of all the French and international riders, to share our passion with the audience.
See you next year !”
