Amazing footage from the Chicago BS Finals back in 1994, featuring Chad Degroot, Andrew Arroyo, Day Smith, Brian Tunney, Trevor Meyer, Nate Hansen, Sean Peters, Jason Brown R.I.P, Paul Palmer R.I.P, Matt Gibson, Paul Osicka, Steve Roy, Sean McKinney, Dylan Worsley (infamous for dropping the pedal switches at this contest!) and many more, this is well worth sitting down with your beverage of choice and taking a trip down memory lane. What a killer contest, thanks Adam for the upload!

Featuring amazing riding from the likes of Ross Smith, Edgar Plascenia, Paul Palmer, Paul Osicka, Richard Zabzdyr (RIP) and many more from this legendary event. Well worth a watch!
With the voting closing today on the 2016 Flatmattersonline Year End Awards, its’s time to finish up on the last two months of the year. Did things slow down, hell no!!!
On the 1st of the month, I was still catching up on the Flatark contest. Viki Gomez was presented with the 2016 World Circuit title at Flatark, Viki was followed on the podium by Matthias Dandois and Yohei Uchino! Here’s what Viki had to say:
“GRACIAS! THANK YOU! 2016 competition season’s been great to me and I am very grateful for once again taking home the 2016 World Championship title! @bmxflatlandworldcircuit. Much love to you all! It’s time to celebrate!”
Earlier today I said August was the busiest month of the month, I spoke to soon. Judging by the amount of pages I have to go through even topped August! Have you not voted yet? Check out what went down in September.
We started the month with a whole bunch of contest run footage from the Real City Spin contest, check out Yohei Uchino’s winning ride once again.

This weeks Throwback Thursday with Paul Osicka. Check his section from Standard Country, this came out in 2000. Paul was hugely influential. For all the new cats who might not have seen this, watch all the walkaround squeaker stuff, flapjack combos, and the backwards g turn towards the end. Great track from EPMD. Groundbreaking!
