Nice flashback to 2001 today and Matti Rose killing it for Felt Bikes at the Jugendpark in Koln, Germany.
Agostini Films just dropped this nice teaser from the Astrolabe contest this weekend, all about teasers today on FM!
Today marks the anniversary of Neil Ruffell sadly passing away, so it seems only right to me to dedicate this weeks Old School Sundays to the man himself. Enjoy this blast from the past, the 1985 Kelloggs head to head battle Neil vs Ron Wilkerson.
Following yesterdays Hiroya Morizaki vs Sam Foakes KOG post from 2008, Hirokazu Miura’s name came up in a comment from Yoshi. The first 2:20 is full of some of the most stylish pivots from one of the most stylish cats to ever ride flatland, Miura is a legend. Does anyone know if he still rides? Any recent footage anyone? I thought I saw some footage around a year ago, I will have to dig around when I have some more time.
Hard to believe this Hiroya Morizaki vs Sam Foakes went down in 2008, great memories making the trip out to Tokyo for the KIng of Ground contest and watching this unfold. Well worth a rewatch, if you haven’t see this before.
There are tries from zero point to make each reality thats why i wanted to put some of them in this video to remember what happened at those 3 rounds and i added some bonus combos from warming up.
MOC 2017 is about to get going, hit play for a sick edit Saki Doumas put together documenting his progression in last year’s contest.
“I was doing everyday yoga during the last round.This helped me to be flexible and strong to avoid injuries.
Also i am wearing 2 pairs of shinguards and one pair of kneepads for the last trick,which is my most difficult trick ever.I believe it cant be rolled more than 3-4 meters as you balance it only with your back and with no help from the feet.
My dream is to roll it out clean so i will work it this year.
For me flatland is about having fun,meet new friends,travel,and be yourself,i try to push my riding style through backweel pedal tricks as i think there are a lot of positions that are undiscovered.
For this weeks OSS we go back to 1994, and the World Championships in Cologne, Germany check out some of the highlights from Day Smith, Paul Osicka & Phil Dolan!
Plenty to look forward to here in the UK for 2017! Peep this slick short teaser Matti Hemmings helped put together from Round 2 featuring winner Dominik Nekolny, James White, Phil Dolan, Andy Hale, Francisco Pekeno, Dino Jeffers and more.
Old school vibes in fill flow right here with some Holeshot 1987 contest footage from Carlo Griggs and Karl Denton. Holeshot at that time was the biggest contest running in the UK.
Just one post today, and its an awesome flashback to 1994! And the Oklahoma BS Series at Hoffman’s warehouse, so much good riding from the likes of Jay Miron, Andrew Arroyo, James White, Trevor Meyer, Day Smith, Steve Roy, Sean McKinney, Albert Retey and many more. I really enjoyed this one and you might do too.
