It’s hard not to get nostalgic going back to The Green Mile, it turns out it’s been 5-6 years since I was last at this legendary riding spot for the UK flatland scene (search TGM on the sidebar of the website to see what I am talking about.
Yinka Thomas threw down a jam last weekend, with the help of Jason Forde and my schedule was for once free so attending the jam was a no brainer.
The forecast wasn’t looking too great, but it was worth the risk as it os October after all you just never know. As it turns out the weather forecast was pretty much bang on, with two heavy showers throughout the day enough for the ground not to dry all day.
Steady Focus Media were on hand for this years York jam, and did a great job capturing the vibe from this legendary event. Soak up the York jam vibes right here!
Yohei Uchino, Moto Sasaki, Fumiya Kanna go head to head battle style at the annual Saga No run contest in Japan. Gotta love the underground Japanese events!
Jean-Francois Boulianne stayed almost 4 months in California this winter, you can’t beat that winter sunshine feel that California offers. Great riding and a nice edit to boot from the likes of JFB, Pete Brandt, Sean Fontenot, Gabe Weed, Joel Moody, Robert Castillo, Shayne Khajeehnoori, Rich Slezak, Ahmed Johnston and many more.
Flatland is not something I expected to see at Swampfest, Chad Degroot, Jean Francois Boulainne, Bill Nitschke and many others enjoy the tight looking area at Swampfest 2022.
A throw-away comment on facebook was the catalyst for the first ever flatland jam in Norwich, Norfolk. Organised by Adam Stembrowicz and Paul Senter, less than a week later saw an impressive eleven riders assemble. New friendships were formed and old friendships rekindled, whilst some dope riding went down.
Thanks to Yinka Thomas and Miguel Pargas for their capturing the event and big props to Yinka for the amazing edit.
The UK needs more jams.
With the covid pandemic stopping a lot of events over the past recently, it’s been a while since the flatland community have had the chance to get together. Nothing but good vibes, from the 2021 York Jam that popped off this past weekend. Soak up the vibes in this great edit from Steady Focus media featuring the likes of Dane Beardsley, James McGraw, Dave Nourie, Isaiah Jordan, Yellow, Matty Cranmer, Bryan Huffman and many more, with cameos from the Hoods to boot. Such a good edit!
