Congrats to Jimalog and his wife on their marriage! Ironic this came online today, the day of the royal wedding here in the Uk, Jimalog's close friends, Moto Sasaki and Takahiro Ikeda add to the show, somewhat under dressed for a wedding party...
This looks like it will be a ton of fun. Great to see Chris Day still involved, representing with his brand "Flat clothing co", jam promises to have a fun party element, so this could get wild! Look forward to the footage from So Cal! may 21st is the date! Get there if you can!
This video is from 2004 when I started riding all over again. At this point I had started relearning my old trick. I wasn't completing many of them at the time. I was very excited to be riding again. I am still excited about riding. After looking at my newest video it made me think about how far I had really come along with my riding. Yeah I am stoked on where I was and where I am now.

Lil switch I learnt yesterday 0:13-14, thats taken me a while to get done, teakettle direct pivot halfhiker one hand one foot karl to spinning circle k (into whatever), really tough to get the speed with no pumps, stoked how this one turned out! Hopefully this will open up some doors...
Yesterday I received a nice Facebook message from Marko Djuric from Solvenia, it's been years since I heard the name, Simon Stojo Falk. Simon used to document the Worlds every year with his father, producing some sick videos each year, showing all the riders and highlights. Great to see, with a full time job, two kids, he's still getting out there riding flatland when he can. Flatmatters!
Been a few years since I heard from Jeffery, but today he hit me up with a link to this website which has a ton of good flatland photography, shoots with the likes of Steve Mulder, Chad Johnston, Trevor Meyer, Terry Adams, Cory Fester and many more. Well worth a look.
Love getting edits like this, of riders I haven't seen before. Ondrej is from the Czech Republic, nice variety of tricks in this spring time edit edit, keep pushing and documenting Ondrej!Ondrej Synacek - edit 2011 from Ondrej Synacek on Vimeo.

"Usually I try not to leave the spot without pulling a trick or link that I started trying. It's almost an unwritten law...It took me three days to get this one, so I'm pretty happy with it. Poor Daniel suffered through it with me filming for a couple of hours. Thanks for that!" Mike SMike S. Deathtruck Turbine from Daniel Neumann on Vimeo.

Fat Tony shot a bikecheck and short interview with Matthias for the tranworld site, Matthias talks about why he doesn't use back pegs "I just don’t do back wheel upside down tricks anymore, which I find too flatland for me."...Hit the link for the rest... http://bmx.transworld.net/1000126849/features/matthias-dandois-bike-check-2/
