Over 40’s Jam by Jimalog

OVER40'S JAM from JIMALOG1985 on Vimeo.

Much like a Tom at Sevisual edit, Jimalog over in Japan commands the same kind of attention and respect where you go and watch the edit immediately. You already know this Over 40’s jam edit from Chiba, Japan is amazing. Great vibes, respect for each others riding space, variety in riding styles, bangers, it’s all here!

I am always curious what other people take out of edits that I have described, so lets hear it in the comment section. Happy friday everyone, it’s time to ride!

Battle in the Rockies – Saturday November 3rd

The week after flatark in Kobe, Japan I will be back in Denver, Colorado to judge the finals of the 2018 AFA series at the Battle in the Rockies. Mates Tucek (on poster) has been confirmed to be back at the event after his second place finish last year, looking forward to this one once again. Book your flights, its going to go off at the Rackhouse.

Dominik Nekolny wins 100 PSI Contest + Highlights Video

The annual 100 PSI contest in Dresden, Germany got rained out this year, thankfully Andy Menz had a back up plan and the riders headed to his private indoor spot and held the contest. Congratulations to Dominik Nekolny for taking the win, Mates Tucek took the second spot followed by Dustyn Alt. Enjoy the edit, despite the rain his one looks like an awesome weekend!

R.I.P Shawn Burnham

Sad news to wake up to today, Shawn Burnham has sadly passed away and no longer is with us. Shawn rode for 2-hip back in the late 90’s, early 2000 era touring around the U.S performing in shows and hitting up contests along the way, and I was fortunate enough to ride with him at a few X Trial contests around that era. R.I.P Shawn Burnham.

Sebastian Grubinger – Raw Clips / March to August 2018.

It’s a good day for edits today, Sebastian Grubinger has been prolific on instagram, so much so I have quite often featured his riding on the FM Instagram page with the hashtag too good for instagram! Will he finish the year with another banging edit, this whets the appetite somewhat!

“Landscapes 2” is a new full length video showcasing some of the best flatlanders from around the world. Featuring Bert Ribul,Brandon Fenton,Chad DeGroot,Hidenori Ishizaki,Koichi Forkone Higo,Paul Chamberlain,Raphael Chiquet,Shinichi Kiba,Takuji Izumi and Simon O’Brien.

Voodou Jam 2018 High Class Final

This past weekend the Voodou Jam went down in Yamanashi, Japan. A welcome return to the infamous BMXBoze edits, I love these edits from Japan. This one is packed with rad riding from the Japanese underground and a variety of riding styles that keeps this fresh, featuring Shinichiro Hara, Shimonnu, Kyan (loo out for his back line at 00:39, Junpei, Yadon, and Enno Yang.

Must Watch – Benjamin Hudson / Done Deal

Done Deal from IGI BMX on Vimeo.

On September 5th 2014, I published Benjamin Hudson’s amazing Welcome to Far East Cycles part, which announced him to the flatland world. Over the last four years we have all watched Benjamin grow into one of the most stylish flatlanders on the planet and in terms of being light footed on the bike I don’t think anyone else comes close.
From 2014 to 2018, Benjamin Hudson spent some time in Budapest, Hungary working on this “Done Deal” edit with the equally talented Tom @ Sevisual. The style of Tom’s filming, editing, music choice compliment Benjamin’s riding perfectly, like all Must Watch edits I like to highlight my favourite parts and talk in some detail about what’s going on.

1:09: Direct jump from regular riding position to inside craving x-ft steam xft Karl position not touching seat x-ft fire turbine bar scoot to full bar bunnyhop exit! Absolutely perfect execution.

1:27: Direct jump from regular riding position to McCircle turbine foot jam body varial to two footed front yard shove it two footed x-fted front yard pivot to inside Karl position jump to pedals out, so much steeze. I keep thinking back to his breakout video as mentioned above, and the layers that are now apparent in his riding to be at this level right now.

2:07: The longest line of the video, and the flow in this, the style, everything about this just brought a smile to my face. I wish I didn’t have to go to work today for 12 hours, E just wants to go and ride.

2:58: Saving the best till last, hands backward nose manual to fire hydrant turbines bar scoot fire turbine jump bar into tea kettle (never seen this switch before!) to x-ft pumping halfpacker pivot whiplash to jump lash x-ft inside steam into xft hang ten pivot crackpacker (no touching the seat in any of this by the way- think about that!) half whip to two footed front yard pivot xft steam (he’s still going!) foot jam jump pedals out!

Wow!

Absolute instant classic with the collaboration of Benjamin “Benji Benji” Hudson and Tom at Sevisual, the last two Must Watch edits in my opinion some up modern day progressive flatland really well right now. Go watch this, drop Benji and Tom a comment and show some love. This is beautiful!
