Happy birthday to Viki Gomez, this weeks TBT is dedicated to Viki. The Red Bull Circle of Balance in Tokyo, Japan went off. Stew Johnston flew out to Japan to document the event for Props Video magazine, this section still rules to this day. So much good riding, you don’t want to sleep on this one!
For many years, European flatland contests were all about the jam circles. I just came across this edit from Flatground 2 that conveys that perfectly, featuring Raphael Chiquet, Alex Jumelin, Frank Lucas, Martti Kuoppa, and Eno Yang. Really enjoyed this one!
Great edit from the Bike Days contest by Frank Lucas, featuring Alex Jumelin, Masato Ito, Matthias Dandois, Jean William Prevost, Thomas Noyer and a bunch of random clips in between for good measure. Good times in Solothurn, Switzerland!
David Hoffmann sent in this awesome agoride edit from the BMX Masters 2006, I’m not sure if I posted this before or not.
Nevertheless, this is certainly worth a rewatch! One of the most important events on the flatland contest calendar, that retains a certain aura year to year when I’m there. Hit play for amazing combos from the likes of Viki Gomez, Martti Kuoppa, Matthias Dandois, Adam Kun, Seppl, Justin Miller (Kickflip backpacker line at 2:28 into his hitch kickflip backpacker!), Chris Bohm, Bram Verhallen (lookout for his Xft 360 Kickflip hitch at 1:34!), Frank Lucas, Kotaro Tanaka, Wolfgang Sauter and Keelan Phillips.
It was great to see the Dutch flatland scene hosting events a few weeks back over in Amsterdam. For this weeks throwback thursdays lets go back to 2004, and one of the biggest flatland contests of perhaps all time, the Braun Flatground! Featuring amazing riding from Matti Rose, Alex Jumelin, Martti Kuoppa, Ryoji Yamamoto, Michael Sommer, Frank Lucas, Michael Steingraeber, Viki Gomez, Jeff Desroche and many more!
