Theres always been something about Albert, check the speed, the smile, the flow, one of the best riders ever in my opinion.

That back peg pivot he does at 2:46 was rad,this guy had some serious tricks does he still ride ? i believe Phil Dolan won pro flat here .

I saw him few years ago at the BMX Masters in Koln and he said he rides occasionally and he'd learnt lot of "new school" tricks, his riding here like i said was ahead of the time...

amazing run really varied tricks, even surfer to bar ride!Albert seemed to be alble to do every trick back then.

His run from Limoges 92, was one of the best runs of all time, anywhere who was there would say the same thing, magical moment in the history of flatland. Albert was one of the most skilled riders of his generation.

WOW that Limoges run was incredible so damm good ,hey was he the man behind KHE or was that Tomas Goring ?

flatmatters said...

No the company is run by Thomas Goring, Albert designed few products in the early days of KHE, i believe the grinddisc and pegs were retey designed, then of course the catweasle frame.

So nice...love it...Did he win?

flatmatters said...

No he was third, Phil Dolan won in 96.
