Japan flatland session 2008 from Zion Bike Co. on Vimeo.

After the Battle in the Rockies contest I’ve been reflecting on a lot of the good trips I have been on thanks to Flatland! And along the BITR trip, this trip I took to Japan for the World Circuit/KOG finals in Tokyo, Japan 2008 was one of the best times ever. Myself and Sam were going 5 in a row on all combos back to back at the Yokohama riding spot, and met up with Akihiko Takahashi met up with us on of the days there and Mislav from Zion Bike Co managed to film to capture some of the memories!

Ulrich Kittel – Dopest Flatland Tricks

Just came across this throwback edit from Ulrich Kittel, what amazing talent this guy was. What happened to him? Look out for his signature style on the backwards backpacker line at 3:31, still dope to this day! Looks like this was shot late 90′s.

Throwback Thursdays with Kevin Jones

For this weeks Throwback we go back to 1989 and a great bit of history that made it’s way onto the internet a few years back, thanks to AJ @Habnad. Kevin Jones’ ground breaking run from the AFA Masters Bristol PA 1989. This was the first time anyone publicly saw the hitchhiker and the backpacker pre-internet days, not to mention as Brett Downs commented, “95 percent of his run and his tricks, who else can say that?”. Do yourself a favour, whether your old school, new school whatever labels you chose, watch the crowd reaction when Jones pulls out the backpacker at around 3:58. This is without a doubt one of the influential moments in BMX and Flatland. Thank you Kevin Jones and thank you AJ for the re-upload in better quality! This is golden!
