I’m not normally a fan of slo-mo clips in flatland, let alone a full slo-mo edit… But this “Fall Forward” hits the spot, nice narrative and amazing production to it, as well as Dan’s amazing riding to boot. Fully enjoyed this!
Another good upload from TJ Perry, this time its Viki Gomez jamming at the Cologne Wolrds 2004. KGB nostalgia in full flow right here, and love these raw edits that really capture the vibe of the riding and the evening sessions at the flatland tent in Cologne. Legendary.
So many great videos documenting the scene in Japan that either pass through the FM firewall or just never reach us. Vivaasia is one of this evideos, thanks to TJ Perry for uploading this one. Great sections and riding clips from the likes of Kotaro Tanaka, Ryoji Yammamoto, Akira Okamura, York Uno, Yoshihiro Shinde and many more. At 24:40 long, grab a cuppa and enjoy this one.
During this pandemic, it has definitely been a good time to watch older edits and get ideas/motivation for the riding sessions. Here is something a little different from flatland god, Chase Gouin performing a flatland show at Phog Lounge circa 2006/2007. Such a tight space, but with Chase’s tricktionary it’s not a problem.

This past winter, Jean-Francois Boulianne made his travels south to Peru and Colombia to avoid the harsh cold Canadian winter.
No one could have anticipated the Covid 19 pandemic that was to follow, and JFB has held onto this edit for a couple of months.
When Jean first hit me up with the edit, I asked what he had been up to during the winter, as I had seen a few posts on social media and was curious what his story was, and he seemed to be away from home for a long time.
After a few conversations back and forth, it became apparent to me that I should showcase this amazing edit a little differently than your normal Must Watch video breakdown.
Without further ado, it’s time to learn a little more about Jean’s travels and enjoy this edit, as the story goes deeper than just tricks, and captures for me what BMX is all about….
Total freestyle as always from the man, Nick Watts to start our Friday posts! Even using. one of his garden trees to keep the line going at 00:52… Nick rules!!
Here’s an interesting one, I like the concept behind this. Joe Cicman was unhappy with his 2017 year end edit, and decided much like you can with tricks, is go back over it and re-edit it, different music and feel.
The steam jump to two footed backyard at 1:11 is still as crazy, as it was three years ago when Joe first dropped it.
George Kikos’ nose manual game is on point in Part 3 of his BMX Flatland series, especially liked the switch foot pedal 5 line at the 1:05 mark. Well worth a watch!
After a few days off updating the site, back to it with a bang! Khaled Huerta is a savage rider, and comes through with this awesome Ninja Kick line. Keep on shredding Khaled!
Unintentional Martti Kuoppa theme running on the site today, and this one is a real treat and makes the best of the Covid 19 pandemic situation. Martti is training his riders hard and utilising technology as best he can to keep the riders motivated and in contest shape. This Terry Adams and Toon Pakphum battle goes hard and might well be the future, such a rad idea!
