Pure gold from the flatland archives today courtesy of Adam Guild. 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!
With the X Games going down this weekend in Minneapolis, USA. It seems like as good a time as any to rewind the clock 17 years to the year 2000. And a win for Martti Kuoppa that really set the tone for years to come, with also great riding from Trevor Meyer, Alex Jumelin, Michael Steingraeber, Nathan Penonzeck, Andrew Faris, and Phil Dolan.
Just one post today, and its an awesome flashback to 1994! And the Oklahoma BS Series at Hoffman’s warehouse, so much good riding from the likes of Jay Miron, Andrew Arroyo, James White, Trevor Meyer, Day Smith, Steve Roy, Sean McKinney, Albert Retey and many more. I really enjoyed this one and you might do too.
Why not run with a X Games throwback this week, being that it is all on my mind thanks to the ESPN April fools. This week we go back to 1999, In San Francisco, I personally competed in this event, great times in Nor Cal! Hit play for some great riding from Nathan Penonzek, Phil Dolan, Trevor Meyer and many more.
Brandon Woldridge just sent in another nice video from the archives, this time from 2002 we have Trickstars 4! Featuring: Martti Kuoppa, Trevor Meyer, Matti Rose, Hiro Morisake, Viki Gomez, Phil Dolan, Chad DeGroot, James White, Effraim Catlow, Alex Jumelin, Stephen Cerra, Frank Lukas, Ulrich Kittel, Peter Szabolcsi, Adam Kun, Valter Monchique, E. Butcher and OG Marton.
The archive keep coming, another great blast from the past today that many of you might have seen but need to. Shane Neville did an amazing job with Flatland Manifesto, issue 1 has great coverage from the La Revolution contest in Toronto, Houston Texas scene repo, Art Thomason, How to pinky squeak with Cory Stratychuk, and a amazing Anaheim B3 contest edit: look out for the xft hitch backwards backpacker line from Martti Kuoppa at 32:34 mark that just keeps going. 16 years later this still rules!
For this weeks throwback I got back to the X Games in 1999 in San Francisco, Michael Steingraber, Trevor Meyer, Phil Dolan and Nathan Penonzek battle it out for the gold medal. Great memories from these events!
Whilst I was searching for this weeks OSS I came across this GT Bicycles edit that I have never seen before, featuring Ruben Castillo, Trevor Meyer, and Gabe Weed shredding in Huntington Beach from a 90’s TV show called Crank.
Here we have a nice treat for Throwback Thursdays, Zach Shaw kindly in sent in this gem from filmed all over the world during 2000-2001.

Enjoy this throwback treat, thanks Zach!
Over the past week or so, I have been watching a lot of mid school videos from the 90’s recapturing a big part of my youth I guess. So during this quiet time in the season, here is the 1997 B3 Contest in Seal Beach, California with great riding from the top three at this event, Day Smith, Trevor Meyer and Andrew Faris!
