Hidenori Ishizaki 2016

Upon hearing the tragic news of BMX icon, Dave Mirra passing away it was hard enough to post the news on the site. Let alone anything else, it felt the right thing to do to give the community time to reflect on such an amazing man and character.

I still pretty numb about the news, Hidenori Ishizaki sent in this awesome new “2016” edit that cheered me up some and perhaps will do the same to you! Hidenori kills the forwards two footed back yard game, definitely give this one a watch when you feel like it!

MapleVibes Hype – Toronto March 4/6th 2016

The annual Toronto contest is around a month away, book your tickets now for what is widely regarded as the curtain raiser for the international contest scene each year! Thanks to Joe Cicman for putting together this hype edit for the event organised by the Canadian Freestyle Organisation, this year the event had a rebrand and is now called Maple Vibes. Jean William Prevost has taken the win in Toronto three years in a row, can he make it a 4peat?

Sebastian Grubinger on Maxxis

Every so often a bit of sponsorship news or edit passes me by and that is the case here. Sebastian Grubinger is now riding for Maxxis via German and Austria distribution @maxxistires.de, I dropped him a message to see what he had to say about the new hook up:

“Maxxis are hooking me up for 2016. I’m really stoked to be riding these tyres now. With the grifter foldable tyres I found a light tyre that works really well for flatland.”

Head over to the @flatmatters instagram for a short promo clip from Sebastian.

Looking forward to the Decade Anthology edit Scott is working on, stay tuned!
