Oh yeah! Rad new street flat edit of Matthias. He has been working hard on his street skills as you'll see - jumping huge sets of stairs and grinding a massive rail at the end. That facial expression at the end is priceless. Yes, it was a very long handrail! In between the intro faceplant and the handrail we get a lot of nice technical street flat combos. Enjoy the show!
Congratulations to Matthias! It's the second consecutive win for him at the Bike Days and his birthday. The trophy should make a pretty decent birthday present! There is a recording of a live stream on Facebook if you are really keen to see some footage right now.

Barcelona is always worth a visit and full of concrete that's more or less waiting for flatlanders. A crew of Spanish and French riders spent a couple of days in the city. Olivier Hoareau filmed a rad edit. What more can we ask for? Enjoy!

Oh yeah! This one is going to be a classic. It's basically a compilation of Denes' best combos since 2011. You'll get to see whiplashes and nose manual in all forms, shapes, variations, colors ... but it doesn't get boring at all. It's just 17 Minutes of super hard tricks. The legendary OG Marton made super that everything is edited properly so just make sure you don't miss that video!
Congratulations to Joris on his victory at the Astrolabe! Looking at the result list it seems that quite a few people found their way to the north of France. The girl class had 6 competitors as well which is great. If you take a close look you'll find quite a few Jumelins in the result list. Alex' kids are starting to compete as well. If there was a family ranking they would clearly win!

Jean-William Prevost announced a new innovative Far East Cycles product. Here is his comment and explanation on the Slimdawg:
"I'm blessed to have Far East Cycles produce my signature flatland fork-hub combo this year. The name is SLIMDAWG. 85MM width instead of 100MM. The concept is simple yet the implications are great. Ride longer pegs without getting further away from the wheel, or just get closer to the center of the wheel! More clearance without having to pull more! It will be sold with a carbon/aluminium hub shell or entire aluminium CNC'd hub. Will be available only for 10MM axles at 2 price ranges. Stay tuned!"
We like the attention to the detail! Let's see if this might become the new standard.
