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!
Pro 1st Owen Bohn 2nd Gonzalo Bellanti 3rd Mauro Aponte
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!
Yusuf is one of the best flatland riders in India. He's riding for the Sharptune shop from Mumbai. For his new edit he choose a spot in an abandoned building complex in Mumbai. You can find more footage and regular updates of Yusuf on his Youtube channel.
You can find a recording of the live stream on Twitch. There are a couple of longer clips without names but the one above should be the recording of the finals.

10 X-foot links for 10 years of riding is the motto of Quentin's new edit. As usual his video is kind of an understatement. There is sooo much hard stuff in those 6 minutes that you'll probably miss half of it when you're watching for the first time. Enjoy!
