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!
