AFA Round 1 and Scoring System

Only 2 weeks until the first round of this year's AFA series! We saw their new promo clip on IG and found some updated information on their website. You can find all the details in the event section: AFA Round 1.

The format is going to be best of 2 runs with no finals. The scoring system of the series has been simplified as requested by the riders: "Each placing is worth a pre-defined number of points. We add up all the points at the end of the year and that's your standing". You can find a scoring table on afabmx.com 

Good luck to all the riders for round 1!

Events: A-Style Jam, Autumn Jam, Tangent Jam, Galaxy Contest ...

What is Matt Wilhelm up to?


Wondering what Matt Wilhelm is up to these days? He has been doing anti-bullying school assembly programs for a while now which deserves respect and is a great alternative to doing regular shows. For the people out there who are wondering what his program looks like he put a video on youtube with clips from his program as well as TV appearances. The kids seem to love it! Keep up the good work Matt!

Toyosu Jam Vol.3 Edit and Vol.4 Date


The Toyosu Jam in Tokyo, Japan is becoming a monthly event. This is the video of the February jam. They wrote in the video description that more riders were attending this time and the weather played along as well.

The next Toyosu Jam will be Vol.4 on March 19. We added it to the event list: Toyosu Jam Vol.4

James McGraw and the no-scuff progress


At the beginning of the year we mentioned James' no-scuff challenge. He made some progress in The meantime and put this edit together:

"February 2017 has been the most progressive month I have had for scuff elimination. Other than the first combo everything is scuff or kick free. #scuffgate just got bitch slapped. I have been pushing hard and not to long ago Austin Luberda (AKA the young american badass) dropped a video of him doing a variel to variel and it motivated me to push my self to pull a combo that has variel to variel with nothing in-between. I am super happy to say i hit my goal and then some."
