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.
Old school vibes this week with the likes of Maurice “Drob” Meyer, Robert Peterson, Karl Rothe and more at Beach Park Cyclery – KPIX 5 1986.
The Haro show at the BMX Cologne contest 2012 kicked ass, featuring Dave Nourie, Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Mike Dominguez, Dennis McCoy and Kevin Martin on the mic. Old school vibes from Cologne.
Following Stuart Crumpton’s edit earlier in the week, it only makes sense that this weeks OSS is dedicated to Eddie Fiola! Check out his run from the AFA Finals in Wichita, Kansas 1988.
With the AFA Round 3 contest going down in Houston, Texas this weekend. Let’s go back to 1989, and some practice footage from AFA Round 1 featuring the likes of Eric Emerson, Bill Nitschke (who won the Old School AFA class this weekend in Texas!), Bill Neumann and many more!
This weeks OSS is dedicated to the inventor of the rolaid, Derek Schott! Check out his great run from the AFA Masters in Tucson, Arizona, and you can see his signature rolaid at the on minute mark, so good!
On June 11th, Dennis McCoy and Dave Mirra R.I.P. were indicted into the BMX hall of fane. It only makes sense to dedicate this weeks OSS to the man himself, DMC! Check out his run above from the 1987 ABA Nationals in Old Westbury, NY jamming to Run DMC.
You can also check out his speech from the BMX Hall of Fame ceremony below:
The legendary annual BMX Cologne contest is just a few weeks away, feel the Old School vibes in this Domplatte Köln 1987 edit!
