Todd Carter came through with amazing footage last week, and today we continue on with some gold from the archives. Featuring the likes of Dave Mirra R.I.P., Bill Neumann, Joe Gruttola, Jay Jones, Park Carter R.I.P., Dennis McCoy and many more. This ruled, thanks Todd for uploading this gem from the archives for us to watch back.
Last night I came across this gem from the archives after a post from Brett Downs on social media caught my attention and I am so glad I sat down to watch this one.

Great footage from the AFA archives for this weeks OSS, we go back to 1988 and the Ohio AFA Masters featuring Gerry Smith, Joe Gruttola, Krys Dauchy, Jeff Cotter & Steve Mulder. Lookout for Joe Gruttola’s infamous double decade at the 3:47 mark.
On my search for some Old School Sunday material for this week, I came across this Team Haro video that was made in 1988, came out in 89 featuring Mat Hoffman, Rick Moliterno, Brian Blyther, Ron Wilkerson, Dave Nourie, Joe Gruttola, and Bob Haro. Some nice flat footage from Nourie and Gruttola around the 25:47, plus some cheesy 80’s music just to finish off that old school vibe.
Great contest footage from the archive today from jsong1974. This Ohio AFA 1988 contest edit features amazing riding from Gerry Smith, Joe Gruttola, Krys Dauchy, Jeff Cotter, Steve Mulder and unidentified last rider, maybe Todd Carter can help with that.
This weeks OSS featuring Joe Gruttola and George Gallo, love the one handed foot on bar rocket backwards nose wheelie at 00:14 on this edit. Not sure of the year, possibly 1988?
