Throwback Thursdays: Flatland Manifesto #1 / 2001

Man, I miss Flatland Manifesto! Shane Neville put so much work into these flatland video magazines, if you missed these it really is worth your time to sit down, and take all this in.Thank you Shane! Issue 1 featured the La Revolution from Toronto, How to Pinky with Cory Stratychuk, ESPN B3 in Anaheim, California (this section rules!), Art Thomason Interview and more. So much good riding, 19 years ago. Wow!

Lil Doses #9

Lil Doses #9 from Doses Flatland on Vimeo.

Today is a good day for edits, well actually….. Lil Doses #9 is a full length flatland video by Adam Guild that deserves your attention. What I especially like about this feature is that the riding is not reserved only for the elite. The riding content covers expert level through to pro level riding featuring Scott Hagnas, George Manos, Giannis Caterllis, Pedro Melo, Dax Wolford, Michael Shao, David Walters, Alejandro Marques, Adam Guild, Dan Hamilton, Bri Welch, Anthony Schneidewind, Louis Orth, Erin Fricke, Joe Cicman, Rodney Williams, Francis Chase Santos, Rosey Taylor, Jay Marley, Kevin Howell, Juan Carlos Moronta, Ramón Lopez Colon, Thiago BB, Robert Victoria, Lindsey Bode, Art Thomason, and Bryan Huffman. Lil Doses #9 runs for 1:19, when you have the time give this one a watch. Props to Adam Guild putting this one together!

* Pedro Medina. Rest in Peace – this one is for you.

Day 5 of the trip, it’s Friday. The build up to the contest is getting real, everyone is moving just that one step faster. We woke up to sunny skies again, and I wondered if I would get through this annual trip to Colorado without seeing the snow. James, Todd, Will Redd, and Bill Nitschke started to talk about making an edit for the week, of the best clips, but needed an intro. After much laughter, James started playing the Geto Boys “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta”, next thing the house and the cars outside made it feel like a movie set. It started the day off continuing the great vibe that’s been here all week in Monument.
