Omari Cato sent this one in, low on views and definitely needs more love. As we all know the Japanese scene rules, quality riding from the likes of Benjamin Hudson, Dez Maarsen, Joel Schallhorn, Masato Ito, Takumi Isogai and many more at the Spaceark Jam in Kobe, Japan.
Today we have a Must Watch treat from Simon O’Brien and Stewart Munro, thanks Stewart for this exclusive!
““Landscapes 3” is a new full length video showcasing some of the best flatlanders from around the world. Featuring Aaron Frost, Chris Vasileiou, Erin Fricke, Keelan Phillips, Keita Uchino,
Kio Hayakawa (fresh on Colony), Masato Ito, Mates Tuček (look out for his clip!), Thomas Deschenaux, Mateus Beckmann, Nick Watts, Steven Hearn (great to see Steven back), Varo Hernandez, Shinichi Kiba and Simon O’Brien (that opening backwards halfpacker kickflip line is no joke!).”
Today I made the trip from Southsea to Kortrijk in Belgium via the Eurostar out of St.Pancras, London. I arranged with contest organiser, Barre Neirynck to be picked up in Lille, France which was just hour and half from London. Dez Maarsen kindly picked me up and drove me direct to the event.
Congratulations to Matthias Dandois who qualified 1st at the Bike Days contest in Solothurn, Switzerland with another flawless performance. Did you know Matthias has not touched in a contest so far this year, that is incredible! Matthias was followed by Jean William Prevost and Masato Ito in the top three, followed by Dominik Nekolny, Francisco Lima from Brazil, Dustyn Alt, Chris Bohm, Minato Sato, Didier Genet, and Oleg Efimov. Live scoring this year at the Bike days. Finals tomorrow at 3pm.
Kevin & Els just dropped this nice compilation from the BMX Cologne contest this year featuring great riding from the likes of Dominik Nekolny, Jean William Prevost, Dez Maarsen, Masato Ito, Alex Jumelin, Kevin Nikulski, Thomas Noyer, and more…
I must sound like a broken record when it comes to these grassroots japanese jams, in fact I feel like it. There’s so much to love about the japanese scene tho, Masato Ito and friends enjoy the Yurukawa Jam. Enjoy this one!
BMX Cologne went off yesterday, Congratulations to Dominik Nekolny who took the win, you can check out his run and lookout for the last trick! Matthias Dandois jamming to Linkin’ Park lit up the crowd (his run is blocked world wide on YT, Kevin & Els did a lil’ mix over his run to get it published!) Matthias took second and the 2017 World Circuit title, and Masato Ito brought his powerful style and delivered a solid run to take the third place spot, you watch the runs right here! More runs and content to follow throughout the week, for no enjoy the top 3. Good times here in Cologne, meeting the flatland family once again, stay tuned for updates.
