Danny Sirkin is building his amazing archive of old school contest footage, so much good stuff on his channel. Today I came across Ross Smith’s run from the 1989 War of Stars contest in Rochester, NY. Always a fan of Ross’ riding, awesome to see this. Style for miles.
Right now there is so much good old school footage on Danny Sirkin’s Flatland BMX Junkies YT Channel, OSS is pretty much becoming exclusively from Danny’s channel. Sorry not sorry, it is great to see this footage from the archives of flatland. Today we have Rick Allison’s run from the 1988 Columbus Ohio contest, Rick kills it. Fun to watch!
This weeks OSS is dedicated to my good friend, Todd Carter who like me also rode for Hutch back in the day. Check out his awesome run from the Columbus, Ohio 1988 contest on board the not so nice Trickstar 2. Todd makes it look good though, those elbow glide rebates!
This weeks OSS is dedicated to one of the smoothest riders ever, Bill Neumann. Hard to believe last Sunday I was actually riding with the man, today we have his tie breaker run from a contest in Columbus, Ohio in July 1988. In related news, next week I have a catching up interview with Bill dropping on the site so stay tuned for that.
Today we have a treat from the archives, big thanks to Flatland BMX Junkies for uploading Danny Meng’s amazing run from the 1990 NBL Grands in Kentucky, never seen this footage before!
Tomorrow I am flying out for the 2018 AFA Finals at the Battle in the Rockies in Denver, Colorado. Back in 1987, RL Osborn, Dennis McCoy and Martin Aparijo went head to head for the title, who won?
For this weeks OSS we go back to Eddie Fiola’s Pro Flatland run from the AFA Finals in Wichita, Kansas 1988. Who was at this contest that still rides?
Nowadays Moto Sasaki is infamous for his bars scrapeing backwards Karl kruzers, but it was this guy Darren Pelio who invented the “bar scrapeing” move and a whole lot more with energetic riding style. Peep this edit I just came across from Woodward in 1989, not seen this footage before. OSS treats…
For this weeks OSS we go back to the 1988 AFA Masters in Carson, California once again. And this time, it is the turn of Pete Kearney. Check out his run right here.
The Kelloggs TV BMX Championship was a hugely popular TV Series hosted by Mick Brown and Andy Ruffell. The show was broadcast on the UK on Channel 4 in 1984 and 1985. One of my earliest BMX memories and this morning took me right back to where it all began, here is the final between Ron Wilkerson and Mike Pardon. Anyone else old enough to remember this?
