“I recently stumbled across this video of the end of my world champion run at the 1990 Kenn BMX Freestyle Worlds. That’s 25 years ago this august: a quarter of a century! I remembered it as a flawless run. I guess I was wrong. Too much raditude after managing the hard part of the death truck to dump truck! I was especially excited to be able to watch my first original link: A chick whip to x-footed locomotive. I had been practicing this a lot, tried it a lot during warm up before the finals and actually did it in my run. I was so happy that day!”
This morning I had a bit of KIng of GRound throwback kind of morning, checking old videos from this legendary event and came across this battle.
Hotoke vs Ucchie head to head battle from the KOG contest in Asakusa, Japan. One of the best contest floors I ever rode, look out for the last combo from Hotoke at 4:32. Definitely worth a watch!
Congratulations to Alex Jumelin taking the win today at Fise in Montpelier, France, winning the final battle with good friend, Matthias Dandois, closely followed by Alberto Moya in third place! Check out the videos from the top three right here!
Kevin & Els once again came though with some more nice contest run footage from the Bike Days contest last weekend, Joris Bretagnolles made a big impression at Round 1 of the 2015 World Circuit killing the back wheel, here he finished 8th place. Definitely look out for him!
Naoto Tamaru from Japan took ninth place at the Flatland Bmx Pro World Circuit 2015 round 1 at Bike Days in Solothurn, Switzerland. Backwheel killer, who brought also a lot of emotion to his run for the crowd, check out his qualifying, final and best trick in this nice edit from Kevin & Els!
