Nice footage here from Pinoski of Martti Kuoppa and Matthias Dandois including last tricks for the crowd. Amazing weekend for UK Flatland, still buzzing about it!
I must say this every time I see a grassroots japanese edit, but this really is what it’s all about! Hiroki Uchiyama kindly sent in this awesome “Kobe & Osaka BMX tour 2015″, I picked a few personal highlights but you definitely want to watch this the whole way through!
Ill at 4:10 – Slow controlled backwards manual to forwards manual into super slow caboose body varials, amazing to watch!
Keisuke Tanigawa – Killer xft combos from 4:43.
Miura – Back wheel japanese legend, fresh footage from 5:48. So much style and crazy pivots!
During the Real City Spin finals we all witnessed a moment where Moto Sasaki seemed to be unconcerned about winning the battle with Matthias Dandois and more about nailing the trick he wanted. The trick in question was a hitchhiker kick flip to backpacker, many have already said Justin Miller already did it but if you look closely this is a different variation than Justin’s… Jim McKay put together this awesome edit of the trick go down plus the crash that resulted in Moto cutting just above his eye and continuing (2:21), this is Rocky type stuff, and as many have already said a moment they will never forget. Much respect Moto!

For this weeks Throwback we go back to 1996, and Ells Bells Graveyard Static video featuring Richard Zabzdyr (R.I.P), Day Smith, Gabe Weed (Gabe still shreds that lot to this day!), Sean McKinney, Phil Dolan and the rest of the Flatland Fugitives and others mixed all throughout in Ells Bells fashion!
Omari explains this one: “I have been really inspired by all of the young riders emerging and growing into their own worldwide especially after seeing many of the riders competing at FISE were of the newest emerging generation. So I set aside a couple of mornings to film myself as my riding has not been documented in some years it seems.”
Look out for the ender, real nice!
The 430 crew just dropped this stylish flat street edit of Hironao Doko cruising the streets of Tokyo mixing up flatland and street/park, take a look!
You may remember the Scott School Grip innovation post we did at the beginning of the month. Here is an edit testing the grip to fullest, hit play to see what these grips can take.
Viki Gomez tagged me in this video yesterday. Every so often I post videos that aren’t flatland, but have some relation to it. In this case, this documentary video tells the story of Tom Pages battling his demons and injuries, to come back with tons of originality to take him to the top of the sport in Motocross. Give this one a watch!
