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!
Many of you checking Flatmattersonline might not know about Aaron Dull. During the eighties, Aaron was one of the main architects in progressing our sport. Peep his run from the 1988 AFA Masters, Round 5, Wayne, NJ. Respect!
Hands up if you spent your childhood learning all the flatland moves in 101 Freestyle Tricks Part 1 and 2. Here is the first part Part 2, with plenty of essential moves to learn. This takes me back some!
Today marks the anniversary of Neil Ruffell sadly passing away, so it seems only right to me to dedicate this weeks Old School Sundays to the man himself. Enjoy this blast from the past, the 1985 Kelloggs head to head battle Neil vs Ron Wilkerson.
For this weeks OSS we go back to 1994, and the World Championships in Cologne, Germany check out some of the highlights from Day Smith, Paul Osicka & Phil Dolan!
Old school vibes in fill flow right here with some Holeshot 1987 contest footage from Carlo Griggs and Karl Denton. Holeshot at that time was the biggest contest running in the UK.
