A throw-away comment on facebook was the catalyst for the first ever flatland jam in Norwich, Norfolk. Organised by Adam Stembrowicz and Paul Senter, less than a week later saw an impressive eleven riders assemble. New friendships were formed and old friendships rekindled, whilst some dope riding went down.
Thanks to Yinka Thomas and Miguel Pargas for their capturing the event and big props to Yinka for the amazing edit.
With the covid pandemic stopping a lot of events over the past recently, it’s been a while since the flatland community have had the chance to get together. Nothing but good vibes, from the 2021 York Jam that popped off this past weekend. Soak up the vibes in this great edit from Steady Focus media featuring the likes of Dane Beardsley, James McGraw, Dave Nourie, Isaiah Jordan, Yellow, Matty Cranmer, Bryan Huffman and many more, with cameos from the Hoods to boot. Such a good edit!
So much to love about this new “Moto Sasaki Private Jam” edit by Jimalog. After a quiet spell, it seems Spring time is here, and the flood gates are opening on “Must watch” edits, and boy this is a treat.
The big news here is Moto Sasaki got a private spot, what I love about this, is rather than keeping it to himself he’s bringing in the next generation of shredders into enjoy this blessing.
As you already will know, the riding level is ridiculous with standouts from Yu Shoji, Kio Hayakawa and the ender from Moto Sasaki!
But there is plenty more from the likes of Akihiko Takahashi, Masashi Itani, Yuta Watanabe, Ruo Hayakawa, Yuo Hayakawa, Takashi Ishida, Koh Yoshida. Nao Yoshida, and Ryuga Matumura.
This edit got me so amped to ride, thanks Moto and Jimalog for sharing this, and all the heads involved providing the feel good vibes!
I don’t know about you at home, but I have been watching a lot of contest/jam footage recently. This Flatgames contest from 2017 in Japan really motivated me and brightened my day, sit down, grab a cuppa and get motivated! Jimalog kills the editing duties and this will get you riding with a smile on your face. Big up Moto Sasaki organising this jam!
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.
