Yesterday marked one year since Dave Mirra sadly passed away. It seemed only right to dedicate this weeks OSS to the man who gave us all so many memorable moments throughout the course of his career, that helped change the game forever. Hit play and watch Mark Eaton’s Dorkin’ 10 compilation:
Back on the Old School Sundays tip after what feels like a few weeks break on OSS updates. Today I feature Scotty Freeman’s run from the AFA Master Round 5 in 1987, William Patterson College. Wayne, NJ. Super smooth style, and some interesting boomerang ride outs to boot!
This weeks Old School Sundays is dedicated to the chairman, Martin Aparijo who is still riding to this day and was at the One Love jam yesterday in Newport Beach, hit play for an interview by McGoo with riding clips throughout.
YouTuber “plastictray” just uploaded a whole bunch of old school gems from the archives, for this week’s OSS, we go back to the 1987 Dyno Freestyle Tour inPark Schwinn in Minnesota featuring Brett Hernandez, Dave Voelker, Dino DeLuca, hit play.
On my search for some Old School Sunday material for this week, I came across this Team Haro video that was made in 1988, came out in 89 featuring Mat Hoffman, Rick Moliterno, Brian Blyther, Ron Wilkerson, Dave Nourie, Joe Gruttola, and Bob Haro. Some nice flat footage from Nourie and Gruttola around the 25:47, plus some cheesy 80’s music just to finish off that old school vibe.
Great footage from the archives sent in from Jffe. Filmed by John Preville, 1989 Great Lakes Freestyle Contest footage, featuring the likes of Steve Mulder, Bill Neumann (how dialled was Bill Neumann!!!) plus parking lot footage from i’m guessing the Virginia Make A Wish Foundation Contest, great practise footage of Mike Schmed and Pete Brandt going off during the Ozone era! Posted this a few years back, certainly worth a re-up, when you got a few spare minutes, sit down and enjoy this one!
At the BITR contest last weekend there was a lil’ rumour going around that Bill Neumann has been riding again, I hope that’s true! Back in the day this guy was one of the most dialled riders in the game, this video (excuse the quality) was shot at the 91 Toronto Bike Show.
Tomorrow I flight to Denver, Colorado for the AFA Finals taking place at the Battle in the Rockies contest. So it seemed logical to show some old school AFA footage (just for a change…), and this weeks OSS is a battle for the 3rd place spot in the 16 Expert Class between Jay Jones and Danny Meng at the AFA Masters in Columbus, Ohio 1998. Great run off, well worth a watch!
