Exactly three years ago in October 2014 I received an email from Giannis Caternellis letting me know he was documenting his progression. We all know what an impact Giannis’ riding since, Giannis posed the question in this latest edit via email “is anyone original or just copying Kevin Jones? Whatever the case, I got the real sense Giannis is playing on the bike in this new Originalidade #7 and everything is allowed, from track stands ride outs, no seat posts and much more, this is awesome to watch!
Today is double decade day, 10/10. And who else but John Yull to come up with the goods, the double at around 00:26 with only one foot jam is wild! Short, sharp and to the point, happy double decade day everyone! How many of you all be doing them today, brakes or no brakes…
Congratulations to Jean Wiliam Prevost who took the win at the IOKC Coontest this weekend in Indonesia. Here’s what Dub had to say about the win:
“It will be a total of 11 flights, 2 x 5 hours on the road in Indo and some killer jet lag to be able to say I won my fourth @ioxcindonesia on my fifth trip to Indonesia 🇮🇩 2017 . Did it come easy? Hell no! 2.@toonflat and
