I said many times here on Flatmattersonline, York Uno and AresBikes over in Japan really do a great job feeding the next generation into flatland. Minato Sato stars in this short promo video for the Ares kids’ bike, love this!
In 2010, Jeff Desroche was hit by a truck while he was walking on the side of the road. It’s taken Jeff nine years to get back to a point where he feels like he can progress again doing what he loves. Flatland! One of the best styles in the game for sure, the way Jeff moves around the bike is something else, so stoked to see Flatland can help and does help in your mental health. This Part 1 in a three part series, really looking forward to the next parts. This is so good, flatland really does matter!

Today we have a special treat from the flatland archives, Alexis Desolneux’s first video part, winter 1991-1992, from “As The Wheel Turns” by Ryan and Brent Clawson, 1992. This was a huge video part for me during the early nineties, many of you won’t have seen this so hit play and feel the energy and Alexis’ riding at the time was electric.
Bruno Zebu & Ederson Ferreira meet up for the first time in eight years for this awesome edit combining front and back wheel styles. Tech as you like from two of Brazil’s finest! Really enjoyed this and I am sure will do as well…
Willian Prado AKA Buiú, Romulo Guerra AKA Bixcoito and Luiz dos Santos AKA Arroz made it all the way from Brazil for the Worlds in Cologne and made a stop in Ireland to visit Mizo on the way back.These videos show how blessed they were with this lovely and rare Irish summer. These guys kill it, enjoy this one!
