This weeks TBT is dedicated to one of the best to ever do it, one of my personal favourites Ross Smith… This section from Chad Johnston’s Intrikat Connect video that dropped in 2000 I believe still hits hard today. The opening fire hydrant body varial to backwards backwards backpacker pivot xft hitch out is so good not to mention everything he does actually. Go watch it, get inspired!
For this weeks TBT we go back thirteen years to Dane Beardsley’s 2004 Flatcrap DVD which he just uploaded to his Youtube Channel. Alexis Desolneux had an amazing section on Dane’s video which still stands up to this day, well worth a rewatch or for some of you the first time watching. It’s a treat either way,
I’m sure many of you will have seen Trevor Meyer’s post yesterday on Facebook, if you didn’t. Trevor has been having a rough time recovering from hip surgery, and is facing all kinds of complications that are delaying his come back to being able to ride. This weeks throwback is dedicated to one of the raddest guys to ever touch a 20″ bike, this edit from his trip to Brazil for GT shows, so many rad lines that are still relevant today. Give this one a watch, and I’m sure I speak for everyone in the flatland community, we all wish Trevor a speedy recovery.
It’s been years since I watched this Props Video Magazine section from the Cologne Worlds finals back in 2002 featuring Martti Kuoppa, Simon O’Brien, Alex Jumelin, Marcios De Jesus, Michael Steingraeber, myself Effraim Catlow, Yammer, Matti Rose, Michael Sommer, and Hiroya Morizaki. Awesome section, well worth a rewatch, such a variety in riding styles between each finalist!
This weeks throwback is dedicated to one of my current favourites, Takuya Higa from Japan. Mad underrated, hit play and check out this awesome “Braking” edit from 2013 by yukipkoproject. Still relevant to this day!
For this weeks TBT, we go back to the year 2000 and Alexis Desolneux’s amazing section from Intrikat Infinite Pieces. This is still good!
This weeks throwback is dedicated to one of the most skilled dudes in the game that doesn’t get enough love, Dane Beardsley. His Same Thing Daily 3 section strikes a a nice tone with me, you have the hardcore flatland, cruising streets, trails, Dane can do it all. And that backwards death truck line at around the 2:18 mark is just pure gold. Watching again….
If you missed this one the first time round or like me just wanted to watch this amazing Dreamcatcher promo again from Michael Sommer. I believe this was filmed in 2007, the lines and tune fit the riding so well. Hitting play again…
It’s TBT time, and recently I have been rewatching a lot of the FlatWeb TV shows and this week wanted to show some love back to this awesome show. I don’t know about you all out there, but I miss this show. If you got this far reading my ramblings, enjoy the Chad Johnston and Peter Olsen interview from 2012.
