Danny Sirkin is building his amazing archive of old school contest footage, so much good stuff on his channel. Today I came across Ross Smith’s run from the 1989 War of Stars contest in Rochester, NY. Always a fan of Ross’ riding, awesome to see this. Style for miles.
G- Shock and Uehara Hiroshi put together a Next Generations contest for Under 15’s over in Japan. Yu Katagiri took the win, watch his line at 2:51! There’s a whole bunch of great riding from the next generation here, big up G-Shock and all the sponsors involved in making this happen.

On November 24th we held our second major contest at Sport Zone Veresegyház. I worked really hard to improve on last year’s contest in all departments. Thanks to our main sponsors Magnetic, IPF Corner, DMKER, Elite BMX Shop and Sport Zone we raised 1000 Euro for Pro purse. I hoped it would help bring some top Pro’s here and it did! We had 12 Pro riders from 6 countries, including the kids and Amateur riders a total of 34 competitors!
Róbert Völler “Minerboy” our live DJ was running the rider routines which made my day a lot easier. We also added new podiums and sponsor wall for the prize giving.
I split School Class into A and B classes, because there is a good step up now from the kids who are really practicing a lot. Recent contests in Hungary have really helped to motivate them. The B class was great to see as some of the kids have only been riding 5-6 weeks and still wanted to take part. Emma Kriston one of two girls at the school got second place! There is a separate video for each category on Youtube.
School Class A
A nice treat for this weeks Throwback, Adam Guild was posted this amazing footage from the archives from the 1995 Mysterious Contest in San Bernardino, CA. Featuring the likes of Nikola Olic, Day Smith is on fire from the 7:28, Jesse Puente and his backwards tea kettle to hitch at 10:28, Nate Hansen, Sean McKinney and many more. So much good riding in this, well worth sitting down and watching this one.
With Sevisual behind the lens and Rob Alton on editing duties, here is the AM and Pro highlights video from the Sport Zone Verseny contest the other week over in Hungary with great riding from the likes of Dominik Nekolny, Martin Drazil, Matti Hemmings, Keelan Philips, Fülöp Vidakovich, and many more. Great to see grassroots events like these being so well attended, this looked like a lot of fun including the longest mega spin contest. Anyone dizzy?
We featured Fülöp Vidákovich’s new edit last week on the eve of the annual Sport Zone contest over in Hungary. Check out Fülöp’s run from the contest that earned him 4th place in the Pro class. Thanks again OG Marton for the upload.
Good morning everyone!
It’s the eve of 10 years of Flatmattersonline! Yesterday I posted the Sportzone results and Dom’s banger, this morning we have Dominik Nekolny’s winning flawless run with an insane difficulty level to boot! Big up Rob Alton for organising this event, great for the scene in Hungary and they get to see riders of Dom’s level in the flesh. I hope to have a little repo from the event in the next few days, stay tuned!
As we approach 10 years of Flatmattersonline, one of favourite things about running the site is not knowing what is coming up content wise each day. This morning I came across this contest footage from Japan entitled “Kimero”. I know nothing more but the riding is self explanatory.
The Australian flatland scene tends to go underneath the radar, I just came across this “DownUnderGround Series 10 – the video round” on my YouTube subscriptions and it’s well worth a watch. Grassroots flatland, awesome to see this going down. A great start to our Thursday posts here on FM!
BMX flatland riders submit a contest run via video to accumulate points for the year end DownUnderGround Australian BMX flatland championship title.

I have featured Takato Moriya’s amazing riding on the site a couple of times in the last year. Takato is now nine years old and entering big contests such as the Fise Chengdu contest recently in China and killing it, watch his run!
