A nice treat for this weeks Throwback, Adam Guild was posted this amazing footage from the archives from the 1995 Mysterious Contest in San Bernardino, CA. Featuring the likes of Nikola Olic, Day Smith is on fire from the 7:28, Jesse Puente and his backwards tea kettle to hitch at 10:28, Nate Hansen, Sean McKinney and many more. So much good riding in this, well worth sitting down and watching this one.
The exclusive content here on Flatmattersonline keeps coming. Whilst I was out at the annual Battle in the Rockies contest a few weeks back, I caught up with some riders to ask them who they thought was the Rider of the Year as a prelude to the up and coming FM year and awards that will be open to vote from 17th December.
This week is seriously going so fast, it’s already time for Friday’s update as we head to the Battle in the Rockies an hour away in Denver, Colorado this morning. We woke up to sunny skies, and after getting the FM updates done it was time to wash the Slab before we started riding. As I started washing the floor, Bobby Burge showed up and helped lend a hand to get the riding spot ready for a session in the sunshine. It was time for the AFA pre jam at the Slab.
Let’s start the month of August with an amazing demonstration of stamina, bike control and consistency to drop a 15 minute combo by the one and only, Rodney Williams! Rodney was already a few minutes into this combo when Gino Palencia started filming, there’s a nice moment here when Yohei Uchino realises he’s witnessing a moment and stops to watch Rodney do his own thing at the Voodoo pre jam. Respect!
Gino Palencia just dropped a nice Voodoo pre-jam rider compilation featuring Naoto Tamara, William Perez, Bobby Burge, Nikola Olic, Yu Shoji, Will Redd, Todd Carter, Cesar Calderon, John Yull, Dez Maarsen, Yohei Uchino, and Scott O’Brien. Check it out!
Nikola throws down one combo at the London Bikes HQ. As you’d expect from Nikola, glass smooth as ever!
Always stoked to see new footage of Nikola busting out! Super smooth/creative style, check this new edit from London Bikes HQ out!
Results coming in thick and fast, via the amflat twitter! Congrats to Nikola Olic taking Veteran class @ Texas Toast, really stoked to see Anthony Buglio up in the Top ten! Yo!!!
