There’s nothing like the threat of rain to heighten your focus and get the job done sometimes. And that is exactly what happened here with Andy Hale killing the back varial pivot game at the Millennium Square riding spot in Bristol, UK. Look out for Andy at the Worlds in a few weeks time.
Yesterday khelagger posted some great footage of Sean Leslie, today we have New Jersey flatland legends, Jay Jones and Mark Teo sessioning in 1990. This is definitely one for old/mid school heads.
Chris Rye over at Props BMX put together this awesome Baco throwback for Chad Degroot’s takeover on the DecoBMX instagram, enjoy the trip down memory lane.
Nice upload from the japanese archives today by koburi200, from the tricks I’m guessing this was filmed 1997-98 ish. Rumors has the feel of the beginning steps of the japanese scene becoming the mecca for flatland today, featuring York Uno, Ryoji Yammamoto, Hiroya Morizaki, Akira Okamura and many more.
It looks like another edit lost in the archives, this time round check some great footage from Markus Redlberger from Vienna, unique styles for miles! Lot of nice whiplash lines (downside 00:36, one handed 1:04, xfted), especially liked the momentum Markus creates from seemingly nothing around 1:50 mark, this was filmed around 2012-13 and still stands up! Definitely worth a watch!
During the late 80’s one of the progressive riders on the flatland scene, was this guy, Sean Leslie! Check out this contest footage from the King of Court series 1989, from New Jersey I believe.
