Old school sundays

The second installment of "old school sundays" is dedicated to the one and only Kevin Jones, who changed and progressed flatland forever. Bringing so many original tricks, hitchhiker, backpacker, john doenut, death truck, dump truck that have influenced every flatlander on the planet!!!, I could go on and on, the man is a legend, much respect due here from Flatmatters!!! If you want to see more of Kevin i'd suggest getting hold of the Dorkin in York boxset. Watch that, and whack on the audio soundtrack for added bonus...

Much respect due, watch through these awesome clips...

Kevin's no touch from the AFA Velodrome, Carson California....


Kevin Jones, at the Tucson, Arizona AFA, amazing run for the time, bringing his creative tricks to the bmx world...


Kevin Jones at the 6th international stunt bike show in Paris 88, the infamous show Mat Hoffman first made public the flip fakie.

Never heard of this guy ha ha joke, yeah you know there are elements of old tricks in todays riding and regardless of what people say without Kevin's input flatland would not be where it is today the guy is "mr flatland" in my book, big respect.
