Neil Waddington over at Ride On BMX just uploaded some great footage from the archives that ironically myself and Mike O’Connell filmed, great riding in this one from the likes of Sean Clarke, yours truly, Mark Atkins, John Yull, Fergus Heron, Ian Coy, Mike O’Connell, Larry Bull from 6:19 is definitely worth a watch plus many more! Thanks Neil for the upload and a great trip down memory lane.
The annual Toronto contest is around a month away, book your tickets now for what is widely regarded as the curtain raiser for the international contest scene each year! Thanks to Joe Cicman for putting together this hype edit for the event organised by the Canadian Freestyle Organisation, this year the event had a rebrand and is now called Maple Vibes. Jean William Prevost has taken the win in Toronto three years in a row, can he make it a 4peat?
Jffe just sent in an awesome Athens/Atlanta Scene Report throwback edit that I couldn’t wait till Thursday on, that featured on Flatland Manifesto Video Magazine in 2002. Great riding from the likes of Jody Temple, Jon Dowker, Jeff Foster, Matt Hulgan, Mitch Hall, Shayne Khajehnoori, Jeff Foster, Kent Pearson, good scene vibes in this throwback.
David Hoffmann made the trip to Malte Orth’s (Fight the Winter contest organiser) house in Gottingen, Germany after seeing his riding posts on FB inside his house. Hit play to watch David and Malte work a tight riding spot really well!
At the start of February and still the year end videos are coming in, check out this year end edit Alan Alfaro from the Philippines put together.
Every so often a bit of sponsorship news or edit passes me by and that is the case here. Sebastian Grubinger is now riding for Maxxis via German and Austria distribution @maxxistires.de, I dropped him a message to see what he had to say about the new hook up:
“Maxxis are hooking me up for 2016. I’m really stoked to be riding these tyres now. With the grifter foldable tyres I found a light tyre that works really well for flatland.”
Head over to the @flatmatters instagram for a short promo clip from Sebastian.
Starting the week off with a nice “Decade teaser” treat from Scott Powell, really like the fire hydrant to foot jam decade direct to back pegs to direct foot jam decade at 00:54 not to mention the upside down decade to xft ice cream lines at 1:03 and 1:15. Looking forward to the Decade Anthology edit Scott is working on, stay tuned!
I posted Jason Kale’s first session outside this winter from the 1300 parking lot in Pennsylvania, Jason just uploaded Session 2. Plenty of good stuff to check out in this one!
