Old School Sundays with Tommy Simpson

Back on the Old School tip as I get ready to fly to California tomorrow. Let’s go back to the legendary AFA Masters in Carson, California at the Velodrome ’88. New England rider, Tommy Simpson was so underrated back in the day, loved this guys style since the 80’s and through the Radazine’ era. The double whiplash to elephant glide line at 1:24 is awesome!

Moreno Valley, CA BS Contest 1994

I’m on a bit of mid school kick at the moment, and really enjoyed watching this Moreno Valley, CA BS Contest 1994 contest footage by mini ramp lord, Kurt Schmidt. Great riding from the likes of Trevor Meyer, Jesse Puente, Sean McKinney, Day Smith, Edgar Plascencia, and Chris Young. If you like watching contest runs, you’ll enjoy this one!
