As it’s our 11th anniversary this week here on Flatmattersonline, I figured this weeks OSS would be dedicated to a run that helped inspire me during my younger years. This run from the 88 AFA Masters in Kansas was talked about for years and indeed we are still talking about here on FM in 2019. So ahead of the time, Gerry Smith! Hyped to watch this again this morning..
It’s that time of the week, O-Zone really had one of the best teams in the late 80’s. Always a treat to see some Gerry Smith footage and that last trick from the 88 AFA Masters in Carson, California, BOOM!
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.
Time for a repost for this weeks OSS. For years I wanted to see this run from Gerry Smith at the 1988 AFA Kansas Finals after reading about it in BMx Plus!, thanks to Jamie West for publishing this run online. The last two tricks in particular are so good, so much power and style!
Time for a repost! Gerry Smith killed it at the AFA Finals in Kansas City November 1988 on his way to 2nd place in 17′s flatland! Amazing riding which was so influential during that time period, listen to the crowd, so rad! Thanks to Jamie West for sending this in! Style for miles!!
