At least once a year it is worth reposting this epic part from flatland jedi, Shintaro Misawa filmed between 2007-2010! Few can move around the bike and execute moves with buttery style like Shintaro, well worth a rewatch!
It was great to see the Dutch flatland scene hosting events a few weeks back over in Amsterdam. For this weeks throwback thursdays lets go back to 2004, and one of the biggest flatland contests of perhaps all time, the Braun Flatground! Featuring amazing riding from Matti Rose, Alex Jumelin, Martti Kuoppa, Ryoji Yamamoto, Michael Sommer, Frank Lucas, Michael Steingraeber, Viki Gomez, Jeff Desroche and many more!
This weeks throwback is dedicated to one of the best riders around, Steve Mulder! To this day there are a whole bunch of tricks within his repertoire that no one is doing or attempting. Let’s take a moment to remember this fantastic edit, and hit the link for some insight into Steve’s timeless riding.
Can remember like it was yesterday ordering Bully Slow Ride just to see Perry Mervar ride, before this video dropped Perry was for many of us just a name or photograph in the magazine. Hit play for his hugely influential section from the 1990 Bully Slow Ride video, thanks to Michael Hughes for sending this in!
One of the greatest to ever touch a 20 inch BMX bike, Chad Johnston killed it in this 5 year Intrikat Foreground edit captured through the X Trials/X Games era which of course included flatland and Andrew was a massive part of, bringing new tricks to every event. Worth a watch still to this day!
Classic section from the 1995 Madd Matt with Day Smith for this weeks Throwback! Power and style for days!
For this weeks throwback, we go back to 1997 and Chase Gouin’s classic section from Mark Eaton’s Balancing Act video. Amazing!
With the amazing news today that the BMX Cologne event is back for 2016, the first thing that sprung to mind was this amazing run by James White!
For this weeks throwback I got back to the X Games in 1999 in San Francisco, Michael Steingraber, Trevor Meyer, Phil Dolan and Nathan Penonzek battle it out for the gold medal. Great memories from these events!
