At first glance I thought the first riders as Matti Rose until the shot panned put, more raw footage from the Japanese archives to start our Sunday posts. My apologises for lack of posts, right in the middle of judging the AFA dream runs, and thats taking all my spare time at the moment.
Although not a lot is pulled in this Satsuki Jam, back in 2005. Really enjoy watching these raw edits from Japan, this one features a few female riders I get ID plus Ryoji Yammamoto and Yohei Uchino back in his front wheel riding days…
A contest/jam in a subway? Grassroots Japan is the best, let’s go back to Okayama in 2004 featuring Yohei Uchino (That xft ride into crackpacker turbine at 1:58!), Akira Okamura and another rider I can’t get ID. Love this kind of footage.
It’s good day for content today, the Toulouse jam went down two weeks ago. This edit is slammed with great riding and styles and laid-back jam vibes (Good job Max Cassagne!), featuring Alexandre Jumelin, Rodolphe Clavelier, Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Joris Bretagnolles, Alberto Moya, Inigo Arroyo, Thomas Noyer, Louise Seigneur, Stéphane Suini, Monkiki, Maximilian, Benedict and many more.
It may be three years old, but the Voodoo Pre Jam 2017 edit by Erik Otto that has just been published is well worth your attention. Featuring the likes of Matthias Dandois, Yu Katagiri, Alex Jumelin, Masato Ito, Yohei Uchino, Ahmed Johnson, Travis Collier, and more shredding at the Pre jam.
Nice, short and sweet feel good edit from the recent IGI Flatland Jam in Montreal, good work from Dub making this jam happen and keeping the scene together.
Plenty of content to get you pumped for the weekend flatland sessions, Max Cassagne sent in this rad Winter Jam edit from Toulouse, France featuring Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Kevin Jacob, Joachim Sontag, Stephane Suini, Renaud Laspeyres & Maxime Cassagne. Enjoy!
The official One Love Jam edit just dropped, and it’s a banger! Good vibes and great riding from the biggest jam in flatland at the legendary elementary school riding spot in Newport Beach, California. Hit play, and get stoked!

Around mid-day Friday, myself and Pete set off for the long drive to Los Angeles for the 10th anniversary of the One Love Jam in Newport Beach, California. We met up with Dylan Worsley about an hour out of SF, and travelled down with Dylan. Like last year, we stayed about an hour outside of Newport Beach, in Corona at Robert Castillo’s house. Friday was a full day of travelling, and when we arrived full party mode was in full effect, we were greeted by Robert, his wife Stephanie, Ruben, EZ Chris, and Bill Nitschke.
Last year was my first experience of the One Love Jam, and can honestly say this was the best jam I have ever been to. Beautiful sunshine, Cali beach setting, awesome fast and huge riding surface, flatlanders and BMXers from all generations, whats not to like?
The 10th anniversary jam hype is building nicely, 1327 W Balboa Blvd, Newport Beach California is the venue, next Saturday (18th January is the date). Over 120 riders expected, I will be flying out on Monday. Looking forward to this, soak up the One Love Jam vibes in last years edit. See you there!
