Just like last year, you can count on Mr Bizhouse himself, Shawn White to come up with the goods once again from the AFA Round 1 contest in Huntington Beach, CA. I’ve highlighted both of the top three runs from Dub, Kevin Nikulski and James McGraw, when you got time you can sit through and watch the whole event go down. Thanks Shawn for covering this for us all!
Jean William Prevost: 1:07 – 25:14. Kevin Nikuski: 1:04:20 – 1:25:27 James McGraw: 9:04 – 33:12.

Matthias Dandois takes flatland to new heights, filmed in Aiguille Rouge, Les Arcs in his home country of France. 3226 m high, with a temperature of -23°C, and oxygen levels down to 62%. This is a tough task for anyone….
During the winter months, I find myself watching more interviews than riding edits and today I came across this full length version of the James White Ride On Interview series from a couple of years ago. Almost certainly worth a re watch, Neil Waddington killed it with this video series and still does to this day.
Matthias Dandois has come out swinging in 2018 and just won his second Fise World contest in two weeks! Congratulations to Matthias who threw down another flawless run in Hiroshima, Japan. Viki Gomez took the second place spot, followed by Alex Jumelin! You can watch the whole finals below, and the top 3 individually.

All good things must come to an end, so here’s the final part in my three part Ride On interview with Neil Waddington.
In this last part we talk about retiring from competition, riding in his 40’s, Master of Creativity, my personal riding, influences, running Flatmatters and Southsea Skatepark. Enjoy!
Great camerawork and riding in this new slick edit featuring Marcus Reich & Steffen Peter jamming at their winter riding spot. Especially liked the fire hydrant karl backwards halfpacker line by Markus Reich at the 1:52 mark, notice the way he controls the carve on the backwards halfpacker, skills!
Darcry 66 just posted this nice highlights edit from the Bike Days contest a few weeks back. Featuring the likes of Matthias Dandois, Dustyn Alt, Alex Jumelin, Bo Wade, Etienne Giraud, Masato Ito, Bert Ribul, Dominik Nekolny, Thomas Noyer, Davis Dudelis, Jean William Prevost, Joris Bretagnolles, and many more.
Khelagger promised some great uploads from the archives, and today comes up with some great footage from the 1999 King of Concrete. Many of you will know my parents, Geoff and Jenni put this contest on for 17 years. This edit features great riding from the likes of Martti Kuoppa, Christophe Dassie, Kimmo Haakana, Armin Batoumeni, yours truly, Alex Jumelin, and many more. Contest run footage towards the end, Alex Jumelin took the win that year. Thanks khelagger for a great trip down memory lane.
