The Charrua Jam was one of the first international contests in Uruguay. It took place last weekend in the capital city Montevideo. Owen Bohn took the first place - congratulations! You can find the top 3 below. Aerial TV made a really good highlight edit and it looks like Uruguay had a pretty good flatland weekend!

This is a good one! The Tartiflat Jam took place back in September. Etienne who made this video wrote: "3rd edition of the Tartiflat Jam, September 2017 with local riders from Annecy, Grenoble, Lyon and more. This year, our jam took place at Les Villards-sur-Thônes between mountains, sun and rain. Lots of fun and cheeses !"
Now we were curious about the cheese situation and it turns out that a Tartiflette (you will see it in the end) is a French dish with potatoes and cheese. That was your daily dose of random knowledge about French flatland-wordplays. Enjoy the video!
Kotaro Tanaka's company Motelsworks introduced their 2018 lineup of complete bikes. The AUX:E is the 20" freestyle model for flatland and street riding. It's an affordable bike (less than 600USD) that comes with all the feature a beginner needs: freecoaster, 3pc crank, both brakes and so on. The 19,3" top tube is a good compromise for flat and street riding.
Besides the 20" version there is a 16" and even a 14" model available for the younger rider out there. Check jykkjapan.com for more details.
Round 2 of the 2017 DownUnderGround series took place in Bridport, Tasmania back in June. In the meantime this awesome edit found it’s way to Youtube. The airport hanger was a great location and a whole bunch of riders travelled to Tasmania for the contest. At the end of the video there is even a little bonus part. Enjoy!
