It’s always good to know the history of our sport/artform that we all love, this weeks OSS is just over 22 minutes long. Its not like most of us don’t have the time to watch this right? Featuring Dennis McCoy who has the standout run, (pulling double backward whiplashes to funky chicken across the Velodrome floor at 3:21 followed by a Dump truck to backwards decade), plus Eddie Fiola, Martin Aparijo, Woody Itson and Chris Lashua. Really enjoyed this, Dennis’ run though!!!
It’s been a few weeks, so lets make this a good one from the archives. Let’s go back to 1988, and some rad footage from the Pro Class at the 88 AFA Masters in Carson, California featuring Dennis McCoy, Martin Aparijo, Woody Itson, Chris Lashua and more.
Last night I came across this gem from the archives after a post from Brett Downs on social media caught my attention and I am so glad I sat down to watch this one.
This video highlights the best in BMX Freestyle from 1988 – 1991. Including flatland, ramps and dirt, this video has it all. Appearances by: Mat Hoffman (900 Air), Dennis McCoy and especially the double backwards whiplash to funky chicken I have wanted to see for years at the 23:24 mark!), Josh White, Dino DeLuca, Perry Mervar, Rick Moliterno, Bill Neumann, Joe Gruttola, Danny Meng, Bill Nitschke, Steve Swope, Rick Thorne, Leo Chen, Pete Brandt, Brett Foster, Joe Johnson and the Team Hip Tricks crew.
What a week here on Flatmattersonline, so many amazing edits and also some great stuff from the flatland archives. And today, we have another belter from Adam Guild. I recall having a video tape of this contest back in the day from Armen Djerrahian, anyway today it is great to see all this footage together from the 1993 Shimersville, PA BS Contest featuring Brian Tunney, Bill Nitschke, Gabe Weed, Dennis McCoy, Chad Degroot, and Chase Gouin. Thank you Adam for the upload and trip down memory lane…
On the last day at Battle in the Rockies, it was awesome to get two riding sessions in with one of my childhood heroes, Bill Neumann. One of the smoothest cats to ever do this flatland thing we all love. On the way back to the McGraw residence, I caught up with Bill to talk about his roots in riding, his consistency, dropping the hitchhiker at the same contest as Kevin Jones, the Riders Brand. We also discuss beating Dennis McCoy back in the day, quitting riding and getting back into it and a whole lot more. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I did interviewing him.
Loving all the old footage coming out from the archives, hit play for a great trip down memory lane from the Round 1 Bicycle Stunts Contest back in January 1992 that took place at Jeff Phillips Skatepark in Dallas, Texas. Featuring: Dennis McCoy, Chase Gouin, Steve Roy, Bill Nitchske, Jason Brown (RIP), Jesse Puente. Thanks Snakebite for this one!
