On June 11th, Dennis McCoy and Dave Mirra R.I.P. were indicted into the BMX hall of fane. It only makes sense to dedicate this weeks OSS to the man himself, DMC! Check out his run above from the 1987 ABA Nationals in Old Westbury, NY jamming to Run DMC.
You can also check out his speech from the BMX Hall of Fame ceremony below:
Sweet edit from the archives for this weeks OSS by Roosevelt Taylor! This week we go back to 1989 and a jam session at a Woodward PA, featuring Perry Mervar, Jay Jones, Craig LePage, Keith McElhinney and many more.
With the godfather of flatland, Kevin Jones celebrating his birthday this week. It’s only right that OSS this week goes to man who changed flatland forever. Check out his run from the AFA Masters in Ohio, 1987.
Another old school gem from Neil Waddington, for this weeks OSS we go back to King of Concrete 1991 featuring Andy Burke, James White, Dylan Worsley, Thomas Loison, (Myself)Effraim Catlow and Tas Szollosi. Enjoy!
Every so often my pick for OSS blurs the lines of what many refer to as old/mid school, for me 1992 is old school. And one of the standout riders from the time period who doesn’t get enough credit is Steven Bisseker, hit play to watch his amazing section from James White’s Show US Some Skills video, the cliff with foot on bar was a worlds first, and in a straight line too! Gnarly!
With the return of the AFA contest series yesterday in Orlando, Florida my choice for my pick for OSS this week was easy. Hit play to check Bill Neumann’s second place finishing run from the the 1989 AFA Masters Round 5 in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
With the South Coast Flatland Jam going down yesterday it only makes sense to dedicate this weeks OSS to Eric Evans. Hit play to check his run from the AFA Masters at the Velodrome, in Carson, California 1988. The surfer to grip ride last trick is amazing for a kid so small, and theres a whole lot more too!
Thanks to Adam Guild this week sending in this great bit of AFA contest footage from the archives with no other than the godfather of modern day flatland, Kevin Jones! Well worth a watch to see how Kevin links together his run!
