On August 2nd, 2013 I posted this “Must Watch” edit featuring S&M’s Chad Johnston.
“Always a treat to see what Chad is up to. It looks like the Long Beach Underground got hot, and he went out to Sea Level for riding spots. The last two lines standout for me, the cranked blender with a neat trackstand exit, to the stem entry to double footed karl, Chad’s riding never disappoints. Pure artistry right here!”
Well worth a re watch or if you missed this the first time round!
For this weeks throwback we go back 2001, and this amazing Flatland Manifesto KOG Finals edit featuring Mike S, Viki Gomez, Yammer, Akira Okamura, Shintaro Misawa, Hiroya Morizaki and many more, so many styles! Definitely worth a watch!
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!
It seems as good a time as any, happy birthday to Moto Sasaki who is 31 years old today! Lets go back to his amazing “10 pedal” part that won the internet for quite a while back in 2012, and still hits hard today!
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!
