For this weeks OSS we go back to 1988, and the King of Flatland series that ran in New England, USA. Tommy Simpson throws down a flawless run, this guy was dialled!
For this weeks OSS we go back to a great video from the Hickman brothers, “Hardcore radness 2”, thanks to Kurt Schmidt for uploading a segment of this featuring some great footage from the Make A Wish contest in Virginia with the likes of Pete Brandt in his O-zone days, Ross Smith, Josh Marsele, Tyson Godfrey, Danny Meng, and many more. I feel like this contest and period of time bridged the gap between old/mid school.
One of my earliest memories of BMX, was the Kelloggs BMX event that aired on British television back in 1985. Proper old school vibes in this head to head contest between Ron Wilkerson and Mike Pardon.

Featuring: Hugo Gonzalez, Dave Vanderspek, Robert Peterson, Scotty Freeman and Maurice Meyer with a cameo of Bob Haro riding a wheelie. Proper Old School vibes!
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:
Thank you Dave for everything.
RIP Dave Mirra 1974-2016.
