For the 2nd time Flatland will be part of the BSF festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Jean Bulhon is organizing the contest which takes place on December 2. There is a 1000€ prize money and a registration fee of 15€.
Dub is the boss ... 4th win at an AFA contest this year. Clear overall winner of the 2017 series. Congratulations! Mates came all the way from the Czech Republic and found his way to the podium as well. James McGraw streamed at least some parts of the contest live on Facebook. There are many longer clips on his Facebook profile.

Two days of Florida jam news in a row.. Yesterday we mentioned the upcoming jam in January and today it's time to look back to the previous Labor Day Jam. Really nice official highlight edit by Jay Marley. It's kind of funny how everyone is sitting on chairs around the spot. Check it out!
Tampa gets a second jam besides the annual Labor Day jam. The Gasparilla Jam is scheduled for January 28 which is the same weekend as a local festival. The jam will host a bunch of little contests: Best Front Wheel, Best Back Wheel, Best Front & Back Wheel, Best Old School Trick & Best Trick. The judges are Chad DeGroot, Marcos Paulo De Jesus and Mark Eaton. As you can see everything is already well prepared and you can find much more details here: Gasparilla Jam
Gilles did his own little Toyosu Jam in Tokyo. Here is the story: "Sunday the 22nd of October 2017, typhoon Lan, the 2nd largest tropical cyclone ever known, reaching speeds up to 250km/h, hit Tokyo Japan, cancelling the originally planned Toyosu Jam Vol. 10. Miraculously the day after, my last full day in Japan, was sunny, giving me the chance to ride this legendary spot! Hope you enjoy!"

What's black and white? A Heresy edit! Alexis visited Wastl in his hometown Vienna and if you are paying attention you'll see Markus Redlberger dropping some short street-flat combos. The whole edit is quite street-flatish and we should probably mention that Vienna is a much nicer place than the video description on Vimeo suggests ;-)
