The archive keep coming, another great blast from the past today that many of you might have seen but need to. Shane Neville did an amazing job with Flatland Manifesto, issue 1 has great coverage from the La Revolution contest in Toronto, Houston Texas scene repo, Art Thomason, How to pinky squeak with Cory Stratychuk, and a amazing Anaheim B3 contest edit: look out for the xft hitch backwards backpacker line from Martti Kuoppa at 32:34 mark that just keeps going. 16 years later this still rules!
Another day, another great video from the archives. Jeff Desroche’s Vibe 5 video from 2002, featuring great contest footage from the Toronto contest, and Florida CFB. So much good riding from the likes of Viki Gomez, Aaron Frost, Jeff Desroche, Dane Beardsley, Terry Adams, Ed Nussbaum, Phil Dolan, Cory Stratychuk and many more. It’s well worth sitting down and enjoying this one! Thanks Claybom for the upload.
