This year Professional BMX Flatlander, Matti Hemmings was diagnosed with a ruptured disc in his back. A career threatening injury, I caught up with Matti to discuss the injury, his lifestyle, recovery, what he's learnt from the incident, going private with operation and a whole lot more! This is a lilttle more indepth than the usual podcast so you definitely don't want to miss this!

5:54: Deciding to go with private health care to get operation?

7:29: Was it quite stressful announcing the injury, dealing with sponsors and pulling out of shows?

8:50: Has the injury to your back made you question your lifestyle?

10:57: How long ago did you have the operation?

22:16: UK Flatland Championships in July?

27:13: You touched on the UK scene, and the struggle for new riders. Whats your feeling on that as a contest organiser?

32:26: What are your plans for the rest of the year?

33:24: What role has Matthew Dyer aka Denny played in your career?

35:18: Signature peg with Armour Bikes?

ALOHA JAM EDIT PART 2 of 3
Don’t be afraid to think different. BMX is a lifestyle created by people who thought differently. Aloha Jam is not a contest. It’s a different type of event. We aren’t here to battle. We are here to have fun together and make our lives awesome. If we are at the session, we push each other to explore and learn new tricks. When we aren’t riding, we’re checking out a place we never been before and probably still talking about riding! This is BMX! Enjoy edit #2 of 3 dropping this week. The Aloha Jam is going to be July 3 - 10, 2018 on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

This is going to be the final Aloha Jam so be there!

ALOHA JAM EDIT PART 3 of 3
BMX has and always will be a lifestyle for me. Everyone from millionaires to broke dudes are looking for meaning in their lives and we got it all right here in the true BMX lifestyle. Aloha Jam is a project created to inspire others. It was a dream and with the help of riders and friends, we made it a reality. July 3 - 10, 2018 will be the 6th and final Aloha Jam. We’re just getting started though! There are new dreams now and there will be plenty more opportunities to join us here in Hawaii and on worldwide BMX adventure/lifestyle projects!

ALOHA JAM EDIT 1 of 3
This year’s Aloha Jam Summer Sessions is July 3 - 10, 2018 on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. No volcanos are erupting on Oahu so no need to worry about that! This is part 1 of 3 edits dropping this week, showcasing last year’s event where we set up Flat Mansion, a place where riders can kick it. It was awesome to bring legendary riders Erin Donato and Armin Batoumeni to the same place after about 15 years! Along with the other riders, the energy was amazing. We explored an underwater volcano, and had many epic sessions at spots around the island! Aloha Jam is celebration of why Freestyle BMX was created; to have fun with your friends and share awesome experiences! 2018 IS GOING TO BE THE LAST ALOHA JAM. BE THERE!
