Missed this great highlights edit by Martin over at Global Flat from the recent BMX Cologne contest. So much good riding in this one from the likes of Matthias Dandois, Alex Jumelin, Jean William Prevost, Thomas Noyer, Dominik Nekolny, Kevin Nikulski, Dustyn Alt and more.
Albert Retey’s run from the Worlds in Limoges, France 1993 still gives the same feeling in 2017 as it did back then. This will forever in my mind be one of the best runs of all time, if you were and you soaked in the atmosphere, the music and the way this run built up you will know exactly what I am talking about!
Nice edit by Lisias Comum from the recent Copa Brazil contest featuring Mateus Beckmann, Bruno Zebu and Romulo Guerra.
Now I’m sure I posted this before, but I can’t seem to find it. In any case, Dustyn Alt’s trip to last year’s Flatark contest in Kobe, Japan is certainly worth rewatch.
One of my own personal highlights from the 2017 BMX Cologne was getting to see Sietse Van Berkel ride again. Qualified in 4th, ended up in 7th place in a stacked pro final is no joke at all! One of the freshest styles in the game right now, don;t sleep on this one and watch out for an amazing save towards the end of his run that had us all stoked and screaming!

It was great to see Wolfgang Sauter back in the mix this year at BMX Cologne, bringing his unique style back to the contest scene. Good vibes and great riding and foot control!
It was tense going down to the last rider to ride at BMX Cologne. I’ve had a bunch of copyright issues with the contest runs this time round, thankfully Kevin & Els was also on hand to document what went down. After one of the best qualification runs in recent memory it didn’t quite happen for Dub in the finals, 5th place and 2nd place in the 2017 World Circuit.
OG Marton has posted some great updates from the BMX Cologne event, check out Dave Nourie’s qualification run from this time last week! Stay tuned for a catch up interview with the man himself…
Let’s kick off our thursday posts with some more coverage from the underground Saga contest in japan. This edit was put together by Hidenori Ishizaki, who manages to capture the vibe and a ton of great riding to boot!
When the mysterious natures of flatland align and you are blessed with a moment. Cologne has been that place over the years where the magic happens, and Jean William Prevost’s qualification run is one of those moments that shall stay with me forever. Stop reading my description and watch this already, thank you to Marton Szilaygi for documenting this!
