An absolute belter from the archives for this weeks Throwback Thursdays that was originally filmed by Colin Smith and later edited by Claybom from Brazil. Great riding from the likes of Martti Kuoppa, Andrew Faris, Day Smith, Phil Dolan, Michael Steingraber, Akira Okamura, Marton Szilagyi, Alexis Desolneux, Effraim Catlow, Nathan Penonzek, and many more, this is a good watch!
With the X Games going down this weekend in Minneapolis, USA. It seems like as good a time as any to rewind the clock 17 years to the year 2000. And a win for Martti Kuoppa that really set the tone for years to come, with also great riding from Trevor Meyer, Alex Jumelin, Michael Steingraeber, Nathan Penonzeck, Andrew Faris, and Phil Dolan.
Kicking off Saturday’s posts, with another flashback from 1999. This time the World Championships in Madrid, Spain featuring Jimmy Petitet,Michael Sommer, Andrew Faris, Jason Brown, Phil Dolan, Nathan Penonzek.
A hidden gem from the archives this morning from khelagger. I haven’t watched Highrollers 6 in years, featuring great flatland riding from the likes of Andrew Faris, Jason Brown, Jamie Macintosh, plus a rad soundtrack to boot!
Rather than my regular Old School Sundays post, I am going to roll with this great find, Canadians Eh from the archives by Rodney Williams (and Tourbus thanks for uploading).
Released early 90’s featuring Andrew Faris, Jason Brown,Jamie Mcintosh, Dave Osato, Nathan Penonzek, Steve Roy and many more.
For this weeks throwback I got back to the X Games in 1999 in San Francisco, Michael Steingraber, Trevor Meyer, Phil Dolan and Nathan Penonzek battle it out for the gold medal. Great memories from these events!
Chad Johnston contributed a sick flatland section featuring Pete Brandt, Martti Kuoppa, Andrew Faris, Chad J, Terry Adams and Simon O’Brien to the 2004 Network DVD. This may or may not have gone under the radar, from the opening pedal 5 intro by Chad this is so good. The riding stands up to this day, as Chad selects some of his favourite clips. My personal favourites were Simon O’Brien’s backwards half packer kick flip line at 1:53, Pete Brandt’s multiple half karl bar flips at 2:19, Martti Kuoppa’s xft hitch kick flip to regular hitch at 2:48. Stoked to watch this one again and suggest you do to!
For the weeks throwback we go back to 1996/97 and a video put together by Eduardo Sousa and Colin Smith. Featuring the likes of Amos Burke, James White, yours truly, Phil Dolan, Andrew Faris, Jesse Puente, Day Smith, Marton Szilagyi and many more!
