I hope you all enjoyed the Pete Brandt interview, I took the day off updating yesterday so today let’s get back on the normal update routine here at Flatmattersonline HQ. Frankie Arnwine was name I used to see a lot in the magazines back in the 80’s, stoked to come across this footage from 1988 at what looks like a local AFA contest in Columbus Ohio. And also once again, big up the Freestyle BMX Junkies youtube page, pretty much the best OLD School flatland channel on the net.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I dropped an Old School Sundays video. Up until today, I have never seen this footage of Danny Meng from a 1988 Cleveland Ohio contest, so this seems a good time to get back on the OSS tip. Something about these old school contests in the city, so awesome!
Yesterday Martin Aparijo was out at the One Love jam all day having fun, this weeks OSS is dedicated to the Chairman!
Tomorrow I head out to California for the One Love Jam, so for this week’s OSS I go back to cali and the infamous Velodrome contest. 1988 to be exact, and Ruben Castillo’s run from the AFA masters in Carson, California. Style for miles.
Up until today I have seen this footage of Chase Gouin at the War of Stars contest back in 1989. Whilst it might not be the best run by Chase’s standards, this does give an indication of what was to follow in the years to follow. The crank a ronin to decade out at 2:03 mark is amazing!
The majority of Old School Sunday content seems to come from 1988 when I think about it, today is another one to the list. Enjoy the GT Freestyle Team Show from Augusta Georgia featuring Gary Pollack, Robert Castillo, Martin Aparijo and Billy Swoope.
Darren Pelio had one of the slickest styles back in the day, and so dialled to boot. Check out his run from the 1988 AFA Masters in Carson, California doing it for Hutch.
Bold title I know, but take a look at this weeks OSS with Curb Dog Robert Peterson! At 4:06 Rob does a backwards squeakers on/wheelchair whatever you care to call it? No one else at this 1986 AFA contest in Columbus Ohio was scuffing according to Danny Sirkin who was there at the contest. As far as I know and Danny knows, no one ever gave Robert credit, let’s discuss this one….
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!
