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.
Yesterday was my last full day in Colorado before heading home. Although I had this weeks OSS ready, didn’t have time to post it. So here it is a day late.
This weeks Old School Sundays is picked by Todd Carter, check out Ryuji Hora’s Wayne, New Jersey AFA Masters run, the macaroni to opposite decade at 1:25 is so rad!
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!
This week we go back to 1988 and Rick Moliterno’s sick run from the 1988 AFA Masters in Tucson, Arizona. Enjoy!
Every so often I post a re-up for Old School Sundays, and this weeks post is dedicated to one of my childhood heroes, Hutch team mate Larry Bull who was so creative and definitely ahead of the time. Hit play for his Tizer World Cup run from 1987!
Following last weeks Ian Clemens, let’s go back to the 1986 AFA Masters contest in Columbus, Ohio with Martin Aparijo!
Every so often, I go with with a repost for OSS and this weeks truly deserves it! Underground shredder, Ian Clemens was so underrated, bar flip squeakers and the backwards facing scuffing move that doesn’t even have a name at around the 1:40 mark is amazing still to this day! Enjoy this one!
As I am here at the Birmingham NEC this weekend, I was having flashbacks to the 80’s and Bob Haro’s demo at the NEC with commentary from UK legend, Tim March. This weeks OSS is dedicated to the man who began it all for us! Thanks Bob!
One of my earliest memories growing up was going to Southsea Skatepark to watch the GT World Tour in 1985 and watching Eddie Fiola and Dave Breed tear it up. During that same tour, Eddue and Dave appeared on a UK kids programme called “Wacaday”, take a look and trip down memory lane.
