Springtime is here, and as we all look forward to the summertime. The contests are more frequent, everyone is getting more riding time, and the content on FM grows.
It’s not often we kick off month with a Must Watch edit, but we did that in May of this year, and boy was it a treat!
Japanese flatland legend, Hiroya Morizaki teamed up with Taichi Kunieda to drop these two brand new amazing back wheel lines. So great to see Hiroya is still pushing hard, hitting the rewind again!
Peep this new edit from the Quest team with clips taken from the teams instagram pages, featuring Pete Brandt, Danny Sirkin, Steve Lapsley, Jean Francois Boulianne, Jeremy Brosset, Mannie Nogueira, Gurvan Le Bloc’h, and Mark McGrade!
The Deco team just put together this really nice promo for Terry Adam’s signature pivotal seat. The idea is simple, get the seat and install it, film a clip, then pass the seat on to the next member of the team. Mannie Nogueira, Scott Weaver, Chad Degroot and Terry Adams all throw down for the promo!
Yesterday we published the trailer, today it is time for the full team edit, entitled “Enjoy It”. The Quest crew gave a nice description for this one!
“A quest can be defined as pursuing something difficult to attain. That joy you feel when you accomplish a long sought after goal makes the years, months, weeks, and days of hard work all worth it. As riders, this is why we ENJOY IT.
Enjoy It. is a project that was meant to not only showcase the 2016 team but also have fun. Filmed throughout the beginning of 2016 in the USA, Canada and France. Each team rider pushed themselves to put something new on video.
We hope the video gets you motivated to ride every time you watch it. Above all, we hope you ENJOY IT.”

September is always one of the busiest months of the year, and this year was absolutely off the chart. Take a check through my highlights and you will see what I mean!
September 4th will be remembered for Martti Kuoppa’s, 10 Stemlashes! You can always count on the boss to raise the stakes, as if this isn’t enough the description hints of a return to KGB? Great news! Someone looks like they are ready for flatark…

The Final Flatland Fracas happened on Sunday August 2nd in East Bridgewater, MA USA. It was an amazing day, bringing a fitting end to this fun grassroots contest series.
Back manuals on lock! Check out Mannie Nogueira’s springtime edit right here…
Another dope edit from Mannie. Mixing in a lil’ street/flat flava! Lot of bike control on the crank-a-roni type move at the end of this edit! Great to see a up and comer using brakes, and more importantly using them well! Stoked on this!
