During my younger years riding for Hutch here in the UK, I always wanted to see my american Hutch team mate Greg Macomber ride, and in the days of only printed media it was only possible to read trick descriptions and the odd photo here and there in the magazines, with that being said here is some footage of Greg riding back in 1987.
At over two and half hours long I realise this isn’t for everyone, but for all you old school heads out there that I ask me if I have any fresh unseen AFA footage.I have never seen this one before, so this for you! The 1989 PA AFA regional contest at 4H-Club Somerset County in New Jersey. Featuring the Alder brothers, Craig Lepage and many more.
Roll back to 1988, Kevin Jones rolls onto the contest floor and drops all these new tricks that he created. You can feel the excitement within the bleachers on everything he does, and in light of the AFA returning to Tucson, Arizona this weekend I had to share this great run from the man himself.
In the late 80’s I was over in San Francisco and got to ride with Carly Garcia at Golden Gate Park along with Aaron Dull, Eric Emerson and many others. Carly was practising for the contest featured, and was absolutely unstoppable. Check out his flawless run out right here, so good!
Ever wondered who invented the karl kruzer? Well no further, Karl Rothe is the man who brought his important trick to flatland game. Check out his run from the AFA Masters in Tucson, Arizona back in 1988. Slick style…
Yesterday was a busy day riding bikes so missed posting, so let’s call this one Old School Sundays on Monday. And who better to showcase than Kevin Jones, and his run from the 88 Tucson Arizona AFA Masters contest. The double hanglider line at 00:42 tapping the back tyre for momentum is so rad!
Lets take it back to the 80’s and this weeks shout out goes to the GT Freestyle Team. I believe this was shot at a contest in Huntington Beach, California. Old school vibes in full effect….
With the 27th anniversary of the York jam yesterday, it only makes sense to dedicate this weeks OSS to the Plywood Hoods. peep the end segment from Dorkin 1 featuring the likes of Kevin Jones, Mark Eaton and more do their thing. Respect!
For this weeks OSS we go back to 1987, and the televised BMX Beat contest in Carlisle, UK. And none other than Jason Webb, hang glider master. Ron Stebanne and Andy Ruffel commentating.
For this weeks OSS, we go back to 1988 and Joe Gruttola’s run at the Austin AFA masters, one for the old school heads for sure!
