For this weeks OSS we go back to 1994, and Albert Retey’s 3rd place ride at the Worlds in Cologne.
Every so often my pick for OSS blurs the lines of what many refer to as old/mid school, for me 1992 is old school. And one of the standout riders from the time period who doesn’t get enough credit is Steven Bisseker, hit play to watch his amazing section from James White’s Show US Some Skills video, the cliff with foot on bar was a worlds first, and in a straight line too! Gnarly!
With the return of the AFA contest series yesterday in Orlando, Florida my choice for my pick for OSS this week was easy. Hit play to check Bill Neumann’s second place finishing run from the the 1989 AFA Masters Round 5 in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
With the South Coast Flatland Jam going down yesterday it only makes sense to dedicate this weeks OSS to Eric Evans. Hit play to check his run from the AFA Masters at the Velodrome, in Carson, California 1988. The surfer to grip ride last trick is amazing for a kid so small, and theres a whole lot more too!
For this weeks OSS let’s go back to a time when the contests ran overall categories, so riders would enter flatland and ramp! Here is GT’s Josh White who is course famous for his quarter pipe riding skills, and can hold his own on flatland too. Check his run from the NYC AFA Masters in 1986!
Jam Circles seem to be a thing of the past, love the feel of this Woodhaven AFA Contest Jam Circle edit with tons of good riding from the likes of John Huddleston, Jay Jones, Craig LePage, Ross Smith, Mark Mckee, Hamid Rashidzada and more.
Awesome upload by Thomas Fritscher for this weeks OSS, Albert Retey was and is for sure one of the most talented riders to ever come out of Germany. Hit play for a real treat from one of the legendary Koln Jugendpark contests under the bridge, this contest went down in 1988.
With the news the AFA is reborn again, it’s as good excuse as I need to post some AFA footage from back in the day for this weeks OSS. If you haven’t seen this run from Dennis McCoy before at the AFA Kansas Finals 88, the music over the top kind of spoils it. I always like to get the energy from the music and crowd noise, but nevertheless the rolling over and out to macaroni at 00:35 is amazing!
