Grab a cuppa and enjoy flatland japanese underground style, without rider ID’s it’s super hard to identify everyone. Enjoy Taka and riding friends shredding in this raw Part 1 qualifying footage from the Saga contest recently!
Leon Vignjević sent in a nice update from the Dalmatian Warriors contest in Baška Voda, Croatia. Congratulations to Martin Drazil winning the Pro Class, and Adam Pekar taking the win in Master class!
Here’s what Leon had to say:
“We had Master and Pro class, 2 days of battles… all the riders enjoyed summer and nature in Baška Voda, they got free rooms and free food plus prize money in both class. Both days we had afterparties and concert, 2 DJs who played music all day. It was soo good even all riders tell that this was best contest in their life 🙂
If you missed it, be sure you come next year when we plan even bigger contest.”

Like everyone when the iBMXff World Championships were announced a few months back, I thought “Where the hell is Flatland?”, there were various trains of thoughts from most of the flatland community, but it seemed summed up with “it’s not the worlds without flatland”, emails went back and forth. If I am being honest, I didn’t think Flatland would be included with budgets and all….
Takahiro Ikeda, Xft no handed straddle time machine on his way to a huge second place.
I missed last weeks OSS with being at the Worlds at NASS, this week we back to 1986 and the BMX Beat TV Show contest in Carlisle UK with Ian Tovey. Inventor of the weedwacker, you can see that move around the 1:33 mark.
Two brothers do battle at the annual Saga contest in japan, Seiji Fujii and Seiichi Fujii. Thanks to Takuji Kasahara for helping identify the riders for me.
Terry Adams made the cut at both BMX Cologne and the World Championships at NASS during his trip over to Europe from his home in Hammmond, Louisiana. Check out his BMX Cologne finals run that earned him eighth place!
After winning the BMX Cologne contest the week before, Viki wasn’t able to get back to back wins and had to settle for 4th place. Big shoutout to James White for filming all the final runs, you can now watch them all here on FM! I will have a repo up on the site in the next few days. For now enjoy all the runs!
