I’ve been waiting on this one and it doesn’t disappoint! At an hour thirty long, grab a cuppa when you have some spare time to kill. Adam 22 as always hosts with special guest Bobby Carter helping out also, you do not get to hear much from Simon so this is a rare interview. Discussions go from how Simon got started, to the solitude life of a flatlander, trips to USA and Europe, his love for Mexican food, his flatland spot in his yard, solo dvds, contest tricks vs bangers, his brake set up, having arguably the most viewed web video of all time, and probably of most interest to me how did having a stroke effect Simon’s riding and much more besides. Well worth your time to sit down and learn more about one of the best flatlanders ever!
Adam 22 catches up with internet phenomenon, Tim Knoll for the latest TCU TV podcast.
Plenty to talk about from his early inspirations in riding, his videos going viral, making money off You Tube, and a whole lot more. Interesting interview, sit down with a cuppa and get know Tim a lil’ better.
I caught up with Martti Kuoppa to talk about his winning ride at the UK Flatland Championships, special thanks to Matthew Dyer for officially filming for the contest. Pinoski also has both runs filmed which will be dropping tomorrow, for now check out the 2:30 run from The Boss and read on to see what has to be said about his win!
Watch his winning second run right here:
The guys over at Snakebite catch up with Trevor Meyer while he is on tour recently and with a little help from Micah Kranz & Chris Morse they talk about painting Prince’s house, life on the road, why he always rides the biggest bikes, and his dominance of flatland contests during the 90’s. So go ahead and hit play! Shout to Darin Wright for the heads up on this podcast!

Summer holidays are over here in the UK, and that means less work for me and more time to ride, and also work on original content for the site. As you can imagine, I have a long list of people I would like to interview, and Sebastian Grubinger has been on that list for a while now.
One of the most interesting things for me is to highlight the riders that are not in the light so much as the main guns. You may say Sebastian Grubinger is on Heresy, that’s the main light. But I would argue despite this, and despite winning awards in the FM year end awards, Sebastian is still underrated.
It’s the underrated riders that nowadays interest me more, I caught up with Sebastian and we talk about a whole lot of things ranging from how he got into flatland, the Heresy brand, music, where he’s from, video parts, his feeling on small contest areas, and much more. Putting together these FM interviews is one of the most motivating things to do, and I really got a lot of going back and forth with Sebastian. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did putting it together.

Schogn Lee from South Africa kindly got in contact with a fresh interview with contest machine, Pakphum Poosa-Art aka Toon for FM. Toon has had a great year on the contest scene already, making finals at Voodoo and Real City Spin back to back. Schogn catches up with him to see where he’s at, and learn a lil’ something about him. Enjoy!
The Montreal Gazette covered the Real City Spin last weekend, hit the link to their website for some great coverage from this amazing event, including a nice lifestyle/riding interview with the man himself Jean William Prevost aka Dub!
Fat Tony caught up with Deco’s Chad Degroot for Episode 30 of “The Expansion Project”, Chad had always had plenty of projects going on, this is well worth a listen!
Here is what Fat Tony had to say:
“My guest today is one of the most influential BMX riders of all time and entrepreneur extraordinaire Chad DeGroot. He is one of those people who has had so much going on for so long that picking and choosing what to cover in a one hour interview was super difficult.
On the entrepreneurial side, he’s owned two different skateparks that had a huge impact on the BMX scene in Florida. He’s put on numerous events and competitions, and currently owns a BMX company and bike shop.
On top of all that, he is a husband and father of two kids. The list goes on and on. If you’re a fan of BMX, you definitely do not want to miss this episode, and if you’re not into BMX, I think you’ll still get plenty out of it, so check it out!”
Red Bull just dropped this photo gallery + Terry Adams interview from the Voodoo jam last weekend, hit the link for some really good photos from Aaron Nardi plus TA’s interview…
As always Jean-William Prevost aka Dub drops some knowledge in this new Decompaz magazine interview, particularly of interest is Dub setting an example and not riding in his own contest (Real City Spin August 29-30). If the video interview is not cool enough, there’s also an online interview to check out also, hit the link below.
