The opening Kevin Jones footage is legendary in this compilation from the 1987 AFA Masters, also featuring the likes of Chris Lashua, Dennis McCoy, Maurice Meyer, Dave Nourie, pure old school vibes….
Winter is here, time for me to get back on Old School Sundays. Let’s start with a section I have never seen before. Perry Mervar’s S&M Feel My Leg Muscles, I’m A Racer back in 1991. Thanks Rodney Williams for recommending this one!
It’s been a while with OSS, and something a little different right here to get back in the swing of things rather than a contest run. Get educated on SF’s Curb Dog pioneer, Maurice Meyer and whilst your at it, go subscribe to one of the best BMX podcasts right now.
Enjoy this one when you have three hours to spare!
I’ve posted this one before, but it has been a minute. Well worth watching back this groundbreaking run from the time (00:58- backyard backwards perverted!), flashback to 1988 and Aaron Dull’s run from the Portland Oregon, AFA Masters contest.
Thanks Todd Carter for the reupload of this gem!
Taking it back to March 1988, Perry Mervar ripping at what looks like a local AFA contest. It’ been a minute since an OSS, Perry rips! Thanks Todd Carter for this one!
It’s been a while since I have come across a fresh OSS post, today that changes with Chase Gouin’s run from 1987 Columbus Ohio contest. Thanks Todd Carter for this treat!
Great compilation with Scottish shredder, Scott MacDonald. Scott was massively underrated back in the 80’s on the UK contest season, hit play to see what I am talking about!
It’s been a while since I published an Old School Sunday post, so let’s break that pattern with this amazing creativity from Ian Clemens, 1988 AFA in Wayne, New Jersey! So good to this day!
It’s been a while since an Old School Sundays feature, and every now and then a repost is well deserved! As is the case here, Gerry Smith’s 1988 AFA Kansas run still hits hard to this day, particularly the last two tricks.
Well worth a watch if you have’t already, what an intense run!
Last night the sad news that UK rider, Jason Davies had passed away broke online. Jason could do it all at a high level, flatland, vert, mini, dirt, skatepark riding. During the 80’s Jason excelled in flatland, and was one of the first UK riders to make the trip stateside competing in the AFA masters and came back here in the UK swinging with a bunch of new tricks and style after each visit. During the 90’s and early 2000’s, Jason later in his career made it as vert rider, and competed in the X games for many years, living stateside.
This weeks OSS is dedicated to Jason, who helped inspire me in my younger years. Such sad news, thinking of all his family, and friends and the BMX community during this difficult time.
R.I.P. Jason Davies.
