Great edit from the Battle in the Rockies pre jam by Anthony Schneidewind from the Colorado Springs Convention Centre with a halloween theme running throughout. That’s got to be one of the biggest contest areas ever, quality riding from all levels in this one. Enjoy!
The Asakusa KOG contests are legendary in flatland, lucky enough I can say I have been to this venue and the crowd was amazing not to mentioning of the fastest floors ever. Quick clip here of Kotaro Tanaka working the crowd.

The finals day at the UCI World Championships was a great day for flatland. The day started with Women’s flat and four riders knuckled down and give it their all, Irina Sadovnik was battling a knee injury and with the help of Trish and her medical skills she was able to ride. Sometimes when you are faced with a physical obstacle such as an injury your focus is heightened. The injuries were stacking up in China and kind of became one of the main topics of everyones discussions during the two week trip.
Lionel Cardoso on the MIC duties, and David on the decks. props to these guys who killed it throughout the series and the two weeks in China!
I just got round to watching the Fise Chengdu Mens Final, what a great end to the year for the Fise World Series. We had a different winner at each stop this year which really shows the level right now. This time it was Moto Sasaki’s day, taking his first win in 12 years of trying for him and Matthias Dandois finsuihed second with Dominik Nekolny in hid. It was enough for Matthias to take the year end title. When you have the time, it is certainly worth watching this final unfold. Amazing times in Chengdu, China.
It’s video contest time!

This one is kind of hard to watch, as the footage focuses on three riders at the same time, Moto Sasaki ended up taking the Japanese National Championships in Okayama.
Following the introduction of “Flat Snitches” last night, this great footage from the archives was brought to my attention. Scott Nagy out of Columbus, Ohio uploaded the runs from Shimersville PA Contest 1994 which will bring back memories to many from Edgar and Jesse’s Wheelies part. At over 38 minutes long, there is great riding from the AM’s and the Pros of that time period, Trey Leeper, Val Naso, Sean Peters, Bobby Fisher, Paul Palmer (R.I.P), Mike Noonan (‘My favorite Albino!’), Edgar Placencia (watch his run from 14:12, and the infamous “That’s how ghetto I am right at the end!), Richard Zabzydr (R.I.P), Paul Vail, Dennis McCoy, Jay Miron, and last but definitely not least Jesse Puente’s run at 34:20. Great stuff from the archives….
