Featuring great riding from Mr White himself, Jason Forde, Phil Dolan, Viki Gomez, Sam Foakes, Giannis Caternellis, Gabor Szmetanko, and yours truly, thanks Robert Voller for the trip down memory lane with this one!
The annual Toronto contest is just 2 weeks away, this competition always sets the tone for the year! With the level of riding, its hard to believe this edit is almost 6 years old! Featuring Matthias Dandois, Dominik Nekolny, Shintaro Misawa, Dane Beardsley, Justin Miller, Jeff DesRoche, Cory Fester, Lachlan Cameron, John “Duke” Dowker just to name a few! This year, the Toronto contest is Round 1 of the AM Flat Circuit, stay tuned for more throwback updates leading up to the event!
For this weeks Throwback we go back to 1996, and the World Championships that took place at the Jugendpark in Koln, Germany. The location where the park/bowl/spine contest is now held, made for some of the best contests ever! Check out Paul Osicka’s run where he ended up in 4th place in a stacked pro class!
For this weeks Throwback we go back to 2009, and one of my favourite brakeless riders, Ed Nussbaum shredding at the Long Beach Marina riding spot. The way Ed floats around the bike with such control is to this day is amazing and inspiring to watch!
It’s not throwback thursdays but this is too good not to publish now, great riding from the archives with the likes of Leo Dumlao, Chad Degroot (forward death truck line at 1:22 is insane to this day!), Sean Peters, Bryan Huffman, Mike S, Jason Brown, Keith King, Brian Tunney and more. Thanks to Jffe for sending this in!
For this week’s Throwback we go back to this dope Mingle compilation edit featuring Yoshihiro Shinde, Hideki Kawai, Keisuke Matsumoto (that back wheel combo at 1:33!), Hotoke kills it from the 2:25 mark, the crackpacker pivot xft half hiker pivot half packer still stands out to this day at 4:25!!, Osamu Hamaguchi (incredible steam/fork wheelie bar flips at 3:20, this is well worth a rewatch!!
So much creative stuff in this edit from Simon Marsan from Quebec, Canada. Look out for the no hand no foot crack / manual around the 1;14 and 2:23 mark, and the xft crackpacker no handed cyborg style I don’t think I have seen again to this day! Amazing riding, and creative talent. Is there more footage of this guy that we all need to see?
It’s been a few weeks since we dropped a throwback thursdays. So let’s make this a good one, and how about this amazing Lee Musselwhite Inertia promo edit that came out around 2002. The story directly from Lee is he was working on a collab video with Paul Osicka for Standard around that time which never happened along with a project with London Bikes who Lee previously rode for, and the footage combined came together with the help of Jon Knight.Inertia was born. Take a trip down memory lane and hit play!
With STD2 video parts being posted regularly with the highly anticipated STD3 due for release in January 2015, what better time to re-up this amazing Dane Beardsley Props Bio?! Style and skills for days, Dane never disappoints, the xft juggle backwards halfpacker line that starts around 00:17 is incredible! Definitely give this one a watch if you missed it the first time or just a refresh!
Sevisual just hit me up with a great edit from Flatground 05 which follows on from yesterdays Flatground post! So much good riding in this Finals edit from Team KGB (Martti Kuoppa, Viki Gomez, Raphael Chiquet, Alex Jumelin, and Pete Brandt), Travis Collier, Seppl, Hiroya Morizaki, Jesse Puente, Justin Miller, Matt Wilhelm and York Uno, enjoy this one!
