The Story of CHE

Riding flatland has to be the most challenging discipline to take on. Here is an inspirational video of what the riding community is all about and how a little bit of help can make all the difference.   The story of Cherechukwu Udenkwere is pretty rad, especially how Shane Hawke (UK) and a bunch of other riders from around the world collaborated to making this a reality. The list of mentions extends to these folks: BIG THANKS TO: Shane Hawke, Phil Dawson, Jason Leverington, David Clarke, Charlie Shaw, Jesse Hall, Joe Clark, Doug Fawkes, Kene Ken, Steve Jones, Brett Staples, Rob Holfels, Brett Reynolds, Colin & Kai McQuillen, Trevor Henry, Mark Noble, Effraim Catlow, Angelo Castilho Patinho, Dave Owen Cycles, Reeve Metal Finishing, Martyn Greswolde, Mark Blackburn, Zach Krejmas and all at Ride USA BIGGEST THANKS TO: Neil Waddington and Ride On BMX Alain Massabova and StMartin BMX This is not the first time Alain Massabova has gifted a bike! When he was starting of the company he gifted FlowZine a frame while I was visiting Paris France. The frame was later gifted to a rider in the Dominican Republic, Juan Carlos Moronta . He rode that bike like no tomorrow, and very similar to Che both riders excelled to a new level. He now runs https://flatlanddominicano.com/ so be sure to check that...

Jam: Toyosu volume 4 in Japan

This year Toyosu jam included some of Japan’s top flatland riders, including my personal favorite Hiroya Morizaki. His bold style with big jumps in-between back wheel and front wheel action has defined his signature style for many years. Enjoy this video recently published on yukiproject youTube channel.   The video starts off action packed, be sure to look around the city background as the video director pays close attention to not only the level of riding and difficulty of the tricks but also of the fantastic scenery Japan offers. The video was filmed on March 19th 2017 so this is all very fresh and new, in a few years from now everyone will be proud to have been a part of that moment, whether attending or viewing it on Flowzine.com As always ride...

Matthias Dandois – The Flat Side of Things 3

Matthias Dandois has officially taken flatland into the new era, check out his latest video release posted on YouTube it is unreal. His style of riding is starts breaking away from the typical spinning and mindless time machine iteration although he does spin more than roll. The video reveals a futuristic outlook into the world of flatland, he mixes his backwards roll into modern combinations then finishing it off with large jumps to sign the deal.  If you want to copy a style and think this style is one to ‘meme’ then by all means try it out, Matthias has leveled up on this technique so good luck with that.  More about Matthias according to Wiki’s and Google searches for those that are learning about him (in case you’ve been living under a freagin rock for the past 8 years!

Happy 2017, next up James McGraw not Scuffing

  James McGraw ended 2016 with this awesome video demonstrating what 2017 will bring to the wonderful world of flatland bmx. Check out this video and ping James McGraw on Facebook whenever you need some pointers of what to expect. He writes; “2016 has been the best year for me, I won 5 events as well as year end title for the AFA. It has been a year filled with Turbines, backyard variels and Crosswalks. I started this year with Scuffgate a Challenge to do my combos with minimal or no scuffing at all. I put a lot of work in to what I call my no kick rollback turn down to underside / ice cream. this trick is one I started 7 years ago with a kick in, now it is scuffless and I have achieved my goals of many no kick combos as well as a few minimal kick combos. The Last line I took my rollback turndown to the other side of the bike using my pedal step walk around. This challenge was the hardest thing I personally I have ever done and the best part is, I have been trying for weeks to end this video with this combo and it happened 🙂 on the last day of 2016 finishing off what truly has been my best year ever. I am so grateful for all my sponsors and friends that support my craziness thru out the year. I hope you like this.”  ...

Rider Spotlight: Jeff Scheer

Adam Guild posted this on Facebook and I was blown away! Jeff writes: “I started riding BMX in 1985 and wanted to mark my 30th year of riding, along with my 43rd Birthday on October 25 with a flatland edit. I pushed myself to learn many new tricks and filmed them all in 2015. Since I have been riding three decades it seemed appropriate to include many brakeless decades. Enjoy and keep riding!”...
