At 12 years years old, Julien Baran is already making his mark on the flatland world by winning the AM class at BMX Cologne, followed by this sweet Welcome to Les Trois Roux edit, a local bike shop over in Caen, France just across the water from FM HQ ironically. This kid has the skills and you should pay attention to this one. Great stuff Julien!
York Uno puts a lot of work into the grassroots flatland scene in japan, really enjoyed this new Kaitaya BMX Kids School edit. And an interesting technique to staple scuffing tricks such as the caboose and lard yard on a small bike, worth watching.
Five years into riding flatland, Yu Katagiri already possesses god like skills on the back wheel. Just go and watch this edit right now, jaw dropping good! 12 years old and pro level techniques, this year he took the Am title at Voodoo and Flatark. You will see why!
Great to see this edit out of 15 year old, Aleksandr Dmitriev filmed at the Sportex Skatepark in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Thanks to Олег Ефимов for sharing.

It’s all about Bike Days 2017 at the moment, just back home after an epic weekend and there are plenty of updates to get through. Let’s begin with 11 year old Minato Sato, it didn’t quite happen for him sadly during qualifying, but he will be back. What a bright future this kid has!
Starting the week off here on Flatmattersonline with a feel good Spaceark BMX School edit by Kenshiro Ojima. Grassroots flatland at its finest.
