2019 Clocktower Jam – San Francisco, CA

Every year Pete Brandt and the SF Clocktower locals throw down a jam to celebrate day light savings, TCU were in town to document what went down last weekend. Pete Brandt gets two clips at the start of the edit from the 00:14 mark, and I was stoked to see the relatively unknown Clocktower street shredder, Jacob get a line in this at the 1:14 mark. Good vibes from the Clocktower, this brought memories flooding back from my time there in January.

OG Flatland BMX Session – Austin, Texas

OG Flatland BMX Session from JMK Pictures on Vimeo.

A couple of thoughts passed through my head watching this well produced OG Flatland session this morning that I feel like I have to share. Number 1, my apologises to Jim McKay missing this the first time round. Number 2, if you are blessed enough to have an amazing scene like this.
I mean this looks like an average session without calling anyone, take advantage of this, hold jams and get togethers and grow the scene. Good riding from Ed Jodie, Ruben Castillo, Chris Anderson, Kenny Boucher, Bobby Burge, and Julio Cotto not to mention the quality of videography is really good with a nice tune to boot. Don’t sleep on this one.

A couple of months ago, Sebastian Grubinger met up with ESPN Latin America to shoot a series of short videos discussing the lifestyle in BMX, riding in Vienna and shoot some riding clips. Enjoyed watching these, and I am sure you will do to.

Must Watch – Matsudo Year End Jam 2018

2019 has begun with a bang, 4 days in and already two Must Watch edits to get you inspired! I am a big fan of the Jimalog edits, and this 2018 Matsudo Year End Jam edit filmed on 29th December at Matsudo, Hall 21 of Forest in Chiba,Japan hits the spot!

With an amazing list of riders, Akihiko Takahashi, Masashi Itani, Yu Shoji,Takuji Kasahara, Takumi Matsumoto, Moto Sasaki, Takahiro Ikeda,Yasunari Ishijima, Takahiro Enoki, Kazuma Nakajima, and Kenji Mori.

As with all Must Watch edits, let’s get into what’s so great about this one!

2:18: Takahiro Enoki, Xft carved hitch crazy pivot to backwards backpacker backwards whiplash out, I still rewind this one after three rewinds already. Timeless move!

2:37: Takahiro Ikeda, been waiting to see Takahiro do the pedal time machine walkover decade to one kick greater into a line without laying bike down and he gets it done here and finishes the line with a time machine variation I have never seen before. Unreal technique!

6:42: Takahiro Enoki, 6:42 and Takahiro hits a dream line of mine, opposite dump ride in, pivot xft upside down ice cream pivot backwards two footed dump pivot opposite xft cream! Just beautiful!

7:30: Moto Sasaki, what a mad line to finish a wonderful edit from Jimalog. Hang ten pivot to xft crackpacker turbines (hard enough) out to xft steam pivot jump to right side pumping halfpacker carved in circles into backwards pumping halfpacker in circles into backwards one footed spinning halfpacker step through to spinning hang ten out! Ridiculous!

As well as the amazing lines from everyone, this edit has a feel good factor about it. Friends together, riding, sharing, supporting. What a start to the year, big up Jimalog and all the riders for this treat! Award nominees announced later, it’s a good day!
