Alexandre kindly shared this video of his girlfriend Franceline with us. They are from France and it's cool to see there are some flatland ladies out there that you probably never hear about. Franceline seems to be working hard on all kinds of McCircle variations. Check her sunny August edit!

Viki started a video series. He is trying to post a combo every day. We posted his Day 1 clip on IG or you can find it here as well. Day 2 is featuring a fresh back wheel combo. Follow Viki on Youtube for more updates.
The annual KTGM Jam is coming up soon. This year it's scheduled for September 2: "KTGM JAM will be hosted for the 8th time in Budapest, Hungary, where flatland thrives once again. Get ready for a remarkable weekend with insane tricks and friendly faces in a breezy environment. Riders from all around Europe will meet up on the huge spot of KTGM (3500m2, 38000ft2) for the weekend, crowned by the JAM on Saturday, to train, chill and get motivated."
You can find more information, links and videos of the previous years here: KTGM Jam 2017
The jam will take place 1 week after the Bauer Flatland Fest so it's a cool opportunity to spend a week in Hungary and visit 2 events.
You may have heard about Wagwan BMX already. Moto Sasaki and Yohei Uchino founded the new brand together. Both of them posted photos of their new bikes on Instagram yesterday (Moto, Ucchie) and Moto commented that he had some trouble earlier this year but want to make good use of the remaining season. The frame is supposed to be available soon but that's all the information there is. The design looks classic and it should be a strong frame if it's supposed to withstand some of the tricks those two are doing ;-)
