Rare footage from the man thats started it all, the legend Bob Haro! Well overdue an Old School Sundays feature!
The Poole UKBFA National contest in 1986 marked my first national contest, and an also an amazing demo by Team Haro featuring Dave Nourie, Brian Blyther, and Ron Wilkerson! Great trip down memory lane watching this one again!
It’s that time of the week where I go back to the Old School! And it’s to 1989 this week, and the Rochester War of the Stars contest, that will always sadly be remembered not for the riding, but the fact only a few dudes got paid their prize money. Ironically one of those was Bill Neumann, check out his super dialled run right here!
Time for a repost for this weeks OSS. For years I wanted to see this run from Gerry Smith at the 1988 AFA Kansas Finals after reading about it in BMx Plus!, thanks to Jamie West for publishing this run online. The last two tricks in particular are so good, so much power and style!
It is always a treat to see old footage of the man, Kevin Jones competing! Check out this nice run from the Ohio AFA in 1987, Jones on Skyway at this point! I’m off to enjoy the Barcelona sunshine…
Great contest footage from the archive today from jsong1974. This Ohio AFA 1988 contest edit features amazing riding from Gerry Smith, Joe Gruttola, Krys Dauchy, Jeff Cotter, Steve Mulder and unidentified last rider, maybe Todd Carter can help with that.
This week we go back to 1988, and Aaron Dull’s prelim run from the AFA Masters, Round 5 in Wayne, NJ. Enjoy!
This might be considered Mid school, but at 25 years old it seems pretty old to me and amazingly there are still some gems in here! Killer riding from the likes of Albert Retey, Lee Clarke, Mark Teo, Jay Jones, Craig Lepage, Mike S and many more! This was such a good contest for the time, so stoked to finally see some footage from one of my first international contests! Don’t sleep on this one!
Fancy a different turn of pace from all the contest footage recently? Check out this weeks OSS with Kenneth Evans & Denny Howell performing a show at the Riverspree Festival in Elizabeth City, NC back in 1986.
